It's the story of Hephaestion, who is going through the seven circles of Hell to rescue his lost love. A simple yet brilliant idea. As the story progresses, Heph meets characters that aid and hinder his progress, and he spends time considering what Hell and his personal actions mean for his soul.
What I really like is that the main villain is a Jesuit (Christian) priest is Hellbent on forcing Christianity on everyone. Being a Christian myself, I often get frustrated with much of the "only us Christians" culture in many religious sects. So I love that the author calls Christians out on this.
My ONLY complaint would be that there aren't any true, good Christians in the book. I would have loved to see the dichotomy of the Jesuit priest and true Christians who try to be kind, loving, and humble.
But overall an absolutely wonderful read . Highly recommend.
This is a different kind of Heroe's Journey. It is a story about love and the blind single-minded devotion it can engender. It is NOT a love story. It is an action packed ride through Dante's Hell, populated by a very interesting cast of characters, architecture, technology, and cultures. Galaini's use of language, often crude but culturally and historically accurate, it brilliant. The hero is well written and his arc is rather glorious and sad all at the same time. I wonder how many of us would have the courage to follow his lead?
There were a couple of times that the events or action failed to live up to the building tension they'd received. There were some nice surprises along the way, and the way the Jesuit faction was partrayed is frighteningly probable.
But in spite of the flaws I encountered in pacing, I love this story. I want more. I am waiting excitedly for book 2!
