A cult classic . . . (Daily Express)

Tremendous momentum (Daily Telegraph)

This book gripped me from the first chapter and then dropped me days later, dazed and grinning to myself (Conn Iggulden)

Product Description

The Beating of his Wings by Paul Hoffman is the final instalment in his epic Cale and the Sanctuary of Redeemers series.



Thomas Cale has been running from the truth.



Since discovering that his brutal military training has been for one purpose - to destroy God's greatest mistake, mankind itself - Cale has been hunted by the very man who made him into the Angel of Death: Pope Redeemer Bosco.



Cale is a paradox: arrogant and innocent, generous and pitiless. Feared and revered by those created him, he has already used his breathtaking talent for destruction to bring down the most powerful civilisation in the world.



But Thomas Cale is weak. His soul is dying. As his body is wracked with convulsions he knows that the final judgment will not wait for a sick boy. As the day of reckoning draws close, Cale's sense of vengeance leads him back to the Sanctuary - and to confront the person he hates most in the world. Finally Cale must recognise that he is the incarnation of God's rage and decide if he will stand against the Sanctuary of the Redeemers and use his unique skill of laying waste to all things.



The fate of mankind rests on Cale's decision.



The Beating of his Wings is the third and final instalment in Paul Hoffman's epic Cale and the Sanctuary of the Redeemers trilogy, following The Left Hand of God and The Last Four Things. Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials meets Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose, and fans of epic heroic fiction will love this series.



Praise for Paul Hoffman:


'This book gripped me from the first chapter and then dropped me days later, dazed and grinning to myself' Conn Iggulden


'Tremendous momentum' Daily Telegraph


'A cult classic . . .' Daily Express



Paul Hoffman is the author of four previous novels: the two previous Thomas Cale titles, as well as The Golden Age of Censorship, a black comedy based on his experiences as a film censor and The Wisdom of Crocodiles, which predicted the collapse of the world financial system.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really poor - so dissapointed. 11 Sep 2013
By Mark
Format:Paperback
I truely enjoyed the first two books and I had been so looking forward to the third, but having read it...pure dissapointment.
Some of the best characters from the previous two books virtually ignored, two new characters brought in, built up and then abandoned and a final couple of chapters that appear like they were written in a hurry by someone with only a passing understanding of the story and characters in general.
The trilogy is still worth reading as the first two books are fantastic, but when opening the third - don't get your hopes up!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good ending to a good trilogy 6 Sep 2013
By Greg
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Like the first two, this book is fast paced and kept me turning the page. I like the writing style and I like the story. The ending felt a little bit rushed, but plausible enough in the book's universe... in any universe really; life's unpredictable and people do strange things. At least it didn't just finish abruptly with a massive meteorite that wipes everyone out!

If you liked the first two, I'm sure you'll enjoy this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining enough but not well written book 26 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The first book of this serie was great. The second book was not so good as the first one. This third volume was probably the weakest of all three.

I expected a. Better description of the battles, or the main events. Instead I was left wanting over and over again. Too bad, since the plot is interesting enough

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor end to a good trilogy 4 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the first two books in the series and had been looking forward to the final installment. However I feel really let down by a rambling story that lacked cohesion and direction. In a touch of irony the main character is very much like the quality of the book as in first two he is strong and daring (albeit pretty evil), whereas this time he is weak and feeble, which sadly made for a boring result.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let down 4 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ending is really anticlimatic , I read the first book in the trilogy and was very excited when the second came out and came away feeling a little dissapointed. The final piece did nothing to dispel this feeling.

The main issue is that the bulk of the plot relates to the war between the reedemers and cales forces and yet the descriptions of the battles are virtually non existant , towards the back end of the book the author literally lists about 10 or 12 battles which lead up to the final showdown on one page but doesnt give a scrap of detail about any of them !

I was hoping the ending would redeem the book but without spoiling it anticlimatic doesnt do it justice the ending is just terrible.

My personal opinion is that the author started with a really good premise and just lost his way a little bit i think that this series could have been excellent if it had been over say 5 books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Upsetting 27 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read both previous books, and having experienced the same downward trend as other readers it was with trepidation that I bought this book. The plot development from the second book continues to fall away until by the end of the book it is non-existent. The character continues to fall in ability and interest. Other characters in the book are ignored or woefully under developed.
The story arc continues to fall apart until you get to the end of the book when the main character just walks away... and if anyone can explain what all the nonsense at the start of the book and at the end of it means? The author seems to have got carried away with his dreams of grandeur and had to rush onto a new book so didn't bother to finish this one.
Very disappointing because it had good characters and interesting arcs early on in the trilogyl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 30 Aug 2013
By YoSirR
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good conclusion. Well written as the previous two. It was always going to be difficult to finish this story satisfactorily for all readers.

Would still thoroughly recommend it as a great story.
