    great novel. the scene where the priest dies is fantastic but the ending is a bit predictable
    As much as I enjoyed this I haven't bothered to look for anything similar or read his other works.

    I’m interested in this book, but I’m a lapsed Catholic and I’m a bit hesitant to read books if they are critical of Christianity. Should I give this book a go or not?

      No I wouldn’t say the book is very critical of Christianity.

      Forgiveness is a major theme throughout the book. Even some of Hell’s demons are shown to be forgiven.y4yj

        It’s been a while, but I just kinda lost faith. There wasn’t really a big event in my life that caused it. I just started questioning it. I hold no ill will against religion at all though

          Me too bro. The more it recedes in the rearview mirror the less I understand how I thought it could be real. But no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water, it's still a kino aesthetic. Look at WH40K

      This book is the best appeal to convert to Christianity I have ever read (ironically the author I think is atheist/agnostic).

        Christcuck takes fiction as reality. Why am I not surprised.

    >And so it was that the four of them approached Chalon-sur-Saône with their bellies full, with a blanket full of cooked meat in the cart, and in possession of the boar skin that would keep Rinaldo Carbonelli warm on his long trek over the mountains, since the girl had told him he would surely die if he came with them to the river.

    >He might have dismissed this warning had she not also told him that his wife, Caterina, prayed for him each night, looking out the window that gave on the Arno; that when she prayed, she held between her clasped hands the little figurine of an angel he had carved for her from the bones of the stag he brought her father on the day he asked to marry her.

    >Although Rinaldo would never see the priest, the girl, or the knight again in this world—he would bid them farewell on the banks of the Saône as they embarked in the company of dangerous men—his hard-won reunion with his Caterina would be celebrated in a public feast for which half the town would gather; the couple’s embraces would inspire a local sculptor to carve an Apollo and Daphne so beautiful that Apollo’s fingers would be worn away with two centuries of women’s kisses.

    Just finished reading it a couple weeks ago. Been trying to find some good medieval horror that is as earnest and faithful with such a setting and the beliefs people held. Sadly most looks to be fairly dismissive or has a very modern perspective for the characters.

      Between Two Fires is one of a kind. Really amazing no one had written such a work until this came out.

    I genuinely thought this was one of the most amateurishly written things I ever read. Story itself seemed interesting though.

          the mob is usually wrong because they have pleb taste.
          and I can't wade through amateurish writing. I just can't. and I especially don't want to pay money to have to do it

        Nah, I know good writing and this was up to snuff. What's something you consider good?

    I liked it quite a bit but I thought it fell apart a bit at the end. It was like he had two different endings in mind and decided to keep both of them.

    The plot would have worked better if the girl was just a saint and it just stuck with medieval theology.

      So just to be clear she was possessed by an angel right? I mean that's obvious from the second chapter but the characters never say it.

    That was such a joy to read. Felt like such a fun take on the genre, a breath of fresh air. I read the whole thing in a day or two.
    Then a month later I picked up his other book, The Blacktongue Thief, and it hurt how bad it was. I was so disappointed. It was like reading an account of your (not particularly funny or clever) friend's D&D campaign. Sad, sad, sad.

    so did every soul killed by the demons suffer the same fate as Thomas? Like Berserk rules?
