About this deal

One chapter later, the trio are then treated to a stew consisting of cabbage, turnips, mushrooms, pork belly, and a few pinches of real pepper. Deadpan Snarker: Thomas copes with his dark past and the sheer hopelessness of everything around him with a dry and bitter sense of gallows humor. Put all of those centuries of prior apocalyptic scriptwriting through Christopher Buehlman's (playfully devilish, I have no doubt about it) high-end literary cuisinart of a brain. The leader of the English routiers vehemently lectures his men after discovering they shot a young page in their latest raid, promising to kill anyone who harms women or children while they're looting.

The girl tells Thomas that the plague is just the beginning of a bigger cataclysm, the fallen angels united by Lucifer are planning to wage their war on Heaven. But for those of you like me that are fans of dark and gritty fantasy, definitely add this one to your list. Thomas, a disgraced knight, roams the land with a band of thieves, living by the sword; when they encounter an orphaned girl in a dying village, Thomas has just enough humanity in him to save her from his colleagues.Token Good Teammate: Guillaume is this for the small crew of river men affiliated with the pirate guild of Simon Peter.

Demon Lords and Archdevils: The main antagonists of the story are Bel-Phegor, Ra'um and Baal'Zebuth, each Princes of Hell tasked by Lucifer to conquer the earth in his name. This is a fantastic novel that's a Black Plague travelogue, epic fantasy, and gruesome religious horror.Thou Shalt Not Kill: After Thomas kills his companions to protect Delphine in the opening, she commands him to "never kill anyone ever again". The ending beautifully wraps up the story, and left an unforgettable bittersweet tightness in my chest as I flipped the last page. Doom Magnet: As more and more of Delphine's strange nature comes to the fore, the harder the fallen angels try to eliminate her, leading them to send servants to try and kill her outright or manipulate her two companions into doing it for them.
