The Sanctuary of the Redeemers is a place where children endure brutal cruelty and violence in the name of the One True Faith. Lost in the Sanctuary’s huge maze of corridors is a boy. He is strange witty and charming, and violent. But when he opens the wrong door at the wrong time he witnesses an act so horrible he must flee, or die..
Where to begin? Oh, right.
I only gave it three stars ’cause in the end it begins to get a bit interesting.
So, this was one of the weirdest, slightly boring books I’ve ever read. Not that I haven’t enjoyed it, which I did, but it only became interesting in the last chapter. Actually, you don’t even understand much what’s going one during the entire book and then, in the end, when Redeemer Bosco tells the main character, Thomas Cale, what he truly is, you kind of feel like you want more – and I haven’t felt that before that particular scene.
I told a friend of mine that this was the sort of book I wouldn’t be desperate for the second one, but I admit wanting to know what the hell is going to happen.
So, after reading the mountains of books I have to read, and as soon as I find The Last Four Things in my book store, I might buy it.
