Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Beating of his Wings, the third and final installment in the epic narrative from Paul Hoffman. Read by the actor Sean Barrett.
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 violence and 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 heart of darkness - 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.

Satisfying ending...

With Thomas Cale, things were always going to turn out bloody and bleak. No surprises there, then!

I was drawn in completely by the first book, left feeling short-changed by the second book, but I'm back on-side with this last in the series. Cale disappoints in some ways, with his immaturity - almost as if he has a sense of entitlement... The banter between the boys is still good, and the witty quips are back.

The ending is completely unexpected.... Was I satisfied? I pondered this for a while; yes I was. How else could it have ended? I couldn't have thought up a preferable alternative, and "boy gets the girl" would have just been too weak for this story.

(Still slightly irritated by the author's indulgence at the end regarding publications etc - but as not part of the story, I just simply pressed stop...)

Same narrator, and same standard - so if you liked the first two's story telling, then you'll be satisfied with this one too.

satisfying sequel

Listened to this one in 2 sittings which is a good sign! Was very happy with the story overall and also that there is definitely scope to continue the story if the Author decides to re visit this world. I very much hope he will do - there is the line is the book "but that is another story" and I very much hope it is.I suppose if anything a bit darker that the previous, somehow that does not make it an unhappy story there are laughs and lighter moments particularly between Vague Henri and Cale. I am probably now going to go back and listen to book 1 again and keep my fingers crossed that Paul Hoffman comes back to this world - or possibly even visits the strange world where the rubbish tips of paradise are found?
