The Beating of his Wings Paperback
by Paul Hoffman
Part of the The Left Hand of God series
The Beating of his Wings is the third and final instalment in the epic Paul Hoffman trilogy following Cale and the Sanctuary of the Redeemers.
Following The Left Hand of God and The Last Four Things, this climatic ending will bring this sensational narrative to a close, and finally the fate of the angel of death will be revealed.
Imagine if Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials met Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose.
Fans of epic heroic fiction will love this series. Praise for Paul Hoffman: "This book gripped me from the first chapter and then dropped me days later, dazed and grinning to myself". (Conn Iggulden). "Tremendous momentum". (Daily Telegraph). "A cult classic ..." (Daily Express). Paul Hoffman is the author of four previous novels, The Last Four Things (2011), The Left Hand of God (2010), The Golden Age of Censorship (2007), and a black comedy based on his experiences as a film censor and The Wisdom of Crocodiles (2000), which predicted the collapse of the world financial system.

Review by bbbart
Being the last book of the 'Left Hand of God'-trilogy, I was furiously hoping it would be as good as the first one and not let me down as the second one did.<br/><br/>It turned out to be somewhere in between. There is individual cruelty, along with massive battles, we get to see much more of Thomas Cale and the know-it-all writing style of Hoffman was really very pleasing again.<br/><br/>I'm still amazed by the first book and would recommend that to anyone (who's into this genre), but the trilogy as a whole is perhaps a little too disappointing to my taste.
