"Following the bestselling novels The Left Hand of God and The Last Four Things comes the final installment of Paul Hoffman's stark, epic trilogy. 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 who created him, he has already used his breathtaking talent for violence and destruction to bring down the most powerful civilization in the world. But Thomas Cale's soul is dying. As his body is racked with convulsions, he knows that the final judgment will not wait. As the day of reckoning draws close, Cale's sense of vengeance leads him back to the heart of darkness--the Sanctuary--and to confront the person he hates most in the world ..."--Provided by publisher.

This is the third book in a trilogy and, taken as a whole, the trilogy is much better than most swashbuckling books. The third book is the weakest because the author over indulges in his themes of the toll violence can take on a life and how small events can have disproportionate results- The author actually has his main character in an insane asylum for the first third of the novel and includes a story about a butterfly startling a horse which, through time and circumstances, results in the deaths of 300 soldiers before they can complete their raid. It became a bit of a slog to finish this book but it was still better written than most similar books and I'd give the trilogy as a whole an A- to A.
