The story centers on a protagonist, the Deathless Man - so called because he stole the miracle of immortality from Lazarus - who has been imprisoned in a wall in a monastery. He is the focus of a prophecy which names him as the one who is to prevent or stop the apocalypse. This man, a not very likable person, is reluctant to participate, so he has to be convinced by a couple of archangels, one of whom is a fallen angel, that he should take the job.
There's not a lot of action in this intermediate piece until it nears the end but it gets into some great metaphysical concepts designed to make you think. The story incorporates a lot of imagery from the Christian Bible, but gives a delightfully different take on God, heaven and hell, the Garden of Eden, how the universe was created, and the purpose of humans in the scheme of things.
There is a decent plot twist toward the end which I thought was a nice touch, and I must say that I'm looking forward to the third book because, as any good second book in a trilogy does, this one ends with a bit of a cliff-hanger. I'm also going to have to go back and read the first book as I want to see the whole story of just how the Deathless Man came to be stuffed into that wall.
If you enjoy books about angels and demons and speculations on how everything came to be and where it's going (with some horror thrown in for good measure), you'll find this one will give you some food for thought.
In Conversations in the Abyss a man known as the deathless man is locked inside his own mind, visited by Lazarus, a man he killed, and two angels. They describe to him what God, Heaven, Hell,
angels, demons, and even souls really are.
They also tell him of his task and why he was chosen for this life and this path.
This is the first thing I have read by this author and I was very impressed. I have always enjoyed the angel and demon theme and he brought it out in a way I have never heard or read before. He has formed a truly new and individual approach to religion, dimensions, and reality itself.
It is well written, well edited, and in all a very excellant book that kept my attention the entire time.
This sequel continues an interesting story line with our hero still being the anti-hero. Will he be on the side to help avert the end of the world or usher it in? I enjoyed this and look for more of the story.
