Description
“Listen. The Sanctuary of the Redeemers on Shotover Sharp is named after a damned lie, for there is little redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary.”

The Left Hand of God is the story of sixteen-year-old Thomas Cale, who has grown up imprisoned at the Sanctuary of the Redeemers, a fortress run by a secretive sect of warrior monks in a distant, dystopian past. He is one of thousands of boys who train all day in hand-to-hand combat, in preparation for a holy war that only the High Priests know is now imminent. He has no reason to think he’s special, no idea there’s another world outside the compound’s walls.  
And then, Cale opens a door.
What follows is a daring escape, an unlikely alliance, a desperate pursuit, a journey of incredible discovery, and an adventure, culminating in Cale’s astonishing realization that he alone has the power to save his world—or to destroy it.

fullDescription
“Listen. The Sanctuary of the Redeemers on Shotover Sharp is named after a damned lie, for there is little redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary.”

The Left Hand of God is the story of sixteen-year-old Thomas Cale, who has grown up imprisoned at the Sanctuary of the Redeemers, a fortress run by a secretive sect of warrior monks in a distant, dystopian past. He is one of thousands of boys who train all day in hand-to-hand combat, in preparation for a holy war that only the High Priests know is now imminent. He has no reason to think he’s special, no idea there’s another world outside the compound’s walls.  
And then, Cale opens a door.
What follows is a daring escape, an unlikely alliance, a desperate pursuit, a journey of incredible discovery, and an adventure, culminating in Cale’s astonishing realization that he alone has the power to save his world—or to destroy it.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The sonorous tones of Steve West perfectly suit the bleak gravity of this first volume of an epic fantasy trilogy. Thomas Cale discovers a grotesque secret that sends him and his companions, Kleist and Vague Henri, fleeing the Sanctuary of the Redeemers, where the priests brutally trained them from boyhood to become ruthless killers. But their martial and tactical skills may be insufficient to the pressures exerted by the complex politics of the city of Memphis and the sinister schemes of their former masters. West, like many British narrators, excels at exquisitely shifting his accent to indicate the social class of the speaker. He also clearly enjoys saying the charmingly bizarre names of some of the characters, such as Idris Pukke and Kitty the Hare. A.B.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
