Product description


"Monumental... The story is mesmerizing, Joby's angst is palpable, the love of God overwhelming, and the malevolence of Lucifer and his minions terrifying.... Offers much to ponder as well as enjoy." "--Booklist," starred review ""The Book of Joby" is a very ambitious first novel, beautifully written, both entertaining and thought-provoking." --Kevin J. Anderson ""The Book of Joby" should have been called the Book of Joy. The magic of childhood, the magic of Camelot, the grand mystery of Creation, the tears of humanity, the petty cruelties of Hell, all are within these leaves. From schoolboy bullies to homeless shelters to an enchanted hometown where time stands still, from shy first love to tragedy and death...Mark Ferrari weaves his spell." --John C. Wright ""The Book of Joby" is a rare gem, the kind that is only seen once every generation or so--a novel that sparkles with wit and charm, humor and wisdom, courage and compassion. Mark Ferrari reveals himself to be a master storyteller, never once faltering in his quest to entertain. Imagine a novel where Harry Potter meets King Arthur and they both go on a quest to fight the devil--and you'll only begin to grasp the kind of fun you'll have reading this book." --David Farland, author of "Sons of the Oak""A grand eschatological epic that rings heretofore undreamt changes on the eternal drama of a blameless man caught in a cosmic wager between Lucifer and the Creator." --James Morrow, author of "The Last Witchfinder" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
