The first book in the Prime Series and I believe I found another favorite! .
Humanity is threatened by demons! In all shapes and sizes, they keep attacking settlements, leaving nothing but corpses behind. But the Priesthood rises and dares to stand against them. Blessed by the Goddess and trusting in Her divine supremacy, the priests follow with unwavering faith a dedicated path to rid the world of the foul creatures' unholy presence.
Trained in the arts of the Light, the priests walk a bloodied path through the scores of demons. But the fight against demonkind is becoming increasingly perilous, and danger rises to threaten the Priesthood’s very survival.
The orders of the High Priest become more and more gruesome, in an attempt to keep the upper hand. But will his adepts be willing to follow? And is the path as righteous as it seems?
In masterful strokes, Catrin Rusell paints here a compelling picture of a dark world, where faith clashes with reason, dedication blends in with obsession and appearances are never quite as they seem. Honor, ethics, righteousness, justice and morality, they are all beautifully brought into focus and challenged on the background of a sweeping war with demonkind. .
How far would you go in doing your duty? How gruesome should an order be before you draw the line and refuse to obey? Would you follow a command through even though the result will make you want to hurl? Or would you stand your ground despite being called a traitor to the cause?
This author here will make you walk a tightrope in between!
Beautifully fleshed-out characters complement this gripping story and you may find it difficult to pick a favorite. They aren't perfect, but just right! Neither too great nor too plain, just human! I for one love them all!!
