This action is at first wiped from his mind. He thinks something is wrong, but he can't quote figure out what as he returns to lead the battle against the minions of the Dark Lord, minions who are resurrected to carry on the fight unless their bodies are cleansed by burning. When another major player enters the storyline, Tain is torn between what he thought he believed and what he experiences, all the time realizing that he has in fact been corrupted.
The author keeps the storyline flowing well. There is a small lull while Tain administers to minions as almost a cult figure, but overall, the pace is quick, the action direct. Perhaps the most important conflict is not between the gods or between the Dark God's minions and the forces of the Unnamed God, but within Tain himself, wanting to fight for his god but fearing that he is tainted by evil and is doing the Dark God's will.
His feeling of guilt by being corrupted is exacerbated by his discovery that the action he and others performed to cleanse the minion's and his own side's dead did nothing of the kind but created a far worse situation. Add his lust for yet another character, and his diminishing love for his own wife, and Tain yet again has reason for his guilty feelings.
One major character is the minion, Athchis. He is important to Tain's journey, yet I was not able to understand why the author chose to have him speak in a pidgin-type speech pattern. This was slightly off-putting.
The novella's description in Amazon has the warning of graphic content. I am not sure just where this content is. The battle scenes are really nothing out of the ordinary, and the torture scenes are not brutally described. Even the sexually-oriented scenes might register as PG-13. "She fulfilled his needs and even sometimes slated his passions" is a somewhat typical line of how that subject is handled. I think the novella is not only for adults, but young teens are also an appropriate audience.
Overall, this novella is a good read, and I recommend it.
