The Last Four Things

Return to the Sanctuary of the Redeemers: a place of pain, cruelty and terrible, dark devotion. Thomas Cale - the Left Hand of God, the Angel of Death - is put in charge of an army and groomed to bring about the end of the world. But might not Cale - killer, strategist, pawn and boy - whose nature is far stranger than even the Redeemers can know, have his own reasons for bringing about the Last Four Things?
