Overview

In Harbinger of Doom, which collects the first two volumes of the Harbinger of Doom saga (Gateway to Nifleheim and The Fallen Angle) into a single volume, Glenn G. Thater transports us to a time of legendary heroes, spectacular duels, courtly intrigue, otherworldly evils, and ancient, forbidden magics. This epic series is certain to delight fantasy fans everywhere.

When mad sorcerers open a gateway to the very pits of hell, releasing demons of darkest nightmare upon the world, only the intrepid knights of House Eotrus stand in their way. Claradon Eotrus recruits Angle Theta and Gabriel Garn--mysterious knights of mystical power--to stand with him against the tide of chaos that threatens to engulf the world and destroy mankind. Theta and Garn take up their swords one last time against the coming darkness--a darkness from which only one will emerge. But Claradon has bought far more than he's bargained for, when his comrade, Ob, discovers the terrifying secret of Angle Theta--a secret so horrifying as to shatter a man's mind and call into question the very nature of good and evil.

THE HARBINGER OF DOOM SAGA

The Harbinger of Doom saga centers around one Lord Angle Theta, an enigmatic warrior of unknown origins and mystical power. No mortal man is his match in battle. No sorcery can contain or confound him. No scholar or sage can outwit him. But for all his skills, he is but one of us: a man, a human, who shares our faults, our dreams, and our ambitions. He boldly strides across the land, fearless, peerless, and cloaked in mystery--all his will bent on righting such wrongs as he deems fit.

Until the day the mystical gateway to Nifleheim opened and turned the world on its head. On that fateful day, Korrgonn, son of Azathoth, set his unholy mark upon our world and claimed it for his own.

Only Theta and his companions see the enemies aligning against us. Only they foresee our end coming--the end of civilization, the end of the world of man. Only they can hope to turn the tide of madness and preserve all that we hold dear.

But no man, not even our greatest hero, can stand against the Lords of Nifleheim and the dark armies at their command. Fiends that infiltrate unseen within our ranks, that tear down our temples and our traditions; that devour us from within--unseen, unknown, unheralded, and unopposed until the hour grows far too late.

Through the murk and mist that hangs before our eyes, one man only sees true. One man pierces the veil of magic that blinds us all and marks the world as it truly is, revealing secrets, secrets of Angle Theta, so horrifying as to shatter a man's mind and call into question the very nature of good and evil.
Join us now on our journey back to the days of high adventure.

    Cheap shots at Christianity (spoilers)

    I read the first book and was interested in the story so i purchased this set. I was disappointed by the author's perversion of judeo-christian beliefs. Making God out to be an evil demon lord and the main hero Theta can be read as satan. This may be the author's attempt or portraying old norse beliefs into his story but I personly felt it was a weak attempt. Ironicly if this story took cheap shots at another religion there would be threats to the author, but it seems ok to mock Christianity.
