Editorial Reviews

Review

"Set in a world where madness equates to power, Michael R.Fletcher's Beyond Redemption is often as nightmarish as it isfascinating. An alarming, original and compulsive tale laced with ablackly comic sensibility. Highly recommended."
--Anthony Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Song



"The journey is dark and emotionally taxing, but therearen't many fantasy novels as smart, ambitious, andexcellently written as this one."
-- Booklist



"Fletcher populated the landscape with an array of mentaldisorders, turning a well-thumbed psychiatric manual into a dramatispersonae. His protagonists worry about their fate in the Afterdeathas they commit their crimes, but they always keep their slim hopesfor redemption. The dystopia and its victims never quite collapseunder the weight of the horror, and their perseverance encourages thereaders to endure the grimness until the thought-provokingconclusion."
-- PublishersWeekly (starred,boxed review)



"Incredibly brutal, this unusual fantasy world fromFletcher (88) is populated by delusional sociopaths--literally.Mental disorders such as megalomania and kleptomania provide thesufferers power over those around them, giving the whole world anoff-kilter manic edge. If you like your fantasy überdark, this mightbe an intriguing Freudian excursion."
-- LibraryJournal

From the Back Cover

Faith shapes the landscape, defines the laws of physics, and makes a mockery of truth. Common knowledge isn't an axiom, it's a force ofnature. What the masses believe is. But insanity is a weapon, conviction a shield. Delusions give birth to foul new gods.

Violent and dark, the world is filled with the Geisteskranken--men and womenwhose delusions manifest, twisting reality. High Priest Konig seeks tocreate order from chaos. He defines the beliefs of his followers,leading their faith to one end: a young boy, Morgen, must Ascend tobecome a god. A god they can control.

But there aremany who would see this would-be-god in their thrall, including the High Priest's own Doppels, and a Slaver no one can resist. Threereprobates--The Greatest Swordsman in the World, a murderous Kleptic,and possibly the only sane man left--have their own nefarious plans forthe young god.

As these forces converge on the boy,there's one more obstacle: time is running out. When one's delusionsbecome more powerful, they become harder to control. The fate of theGeisteskranken is to inevitably find oneself in the Afterdeath. Thequestion, then, is:

Who will rule there?
