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.

Wow Hoffman, what the?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I wish he would have stuck to the same writing style that made the first 2 so great.


What was most disappointing about Paul Hoffman’s story?

If I didn't know better I would swear Hoffman contracted this book out. It doesn't even read the same, and I am not talking about the narration. Did Paul take some new writing class and decide to show off some new moves. If so please take a couple steps back. Concentrate on telling a clever story, not cleverly writing a boring one.


Any additional comments?

I am not sure I have seen the such an absolute collapse to what would have been a great fantasy series since the great debacle of Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy. It follows the same pattern: First book; absolutely outstanding. Second book; Pretty good, not as great as the first but still great. Third Book: Absolute nonsense.
OK so this wasn't as bad as Hobb's 3rd book, I mean I didn't want to vomit after I read it. But still I was so looking forward to the end of this Trilogy and this just missed the mark. I am really just left confused and disappointed.

Disappointed

couldn't even finish it. should have kept the original reader. the reader for this book was kinda hard to understand when pronouncing character names and didn't do well when changing the tone of his voice when reenacting specific character's. it got so bad that I just turned it off. The first 2 books are amazing tho.
