The only thing worse than dying is never having it as an option.
The Tarimain, the immortal soldiers of God, tasked with fighting on the front lines of the eternal war, uncover a dark demonic plot to raise an army. Atharron, a four thousand year old former ruler of Calnis; Sarah, apathetic, but determined to do her duty; and Luke, a young Tarimai discovering the wonders and burdens of immortality. Together, they make their way through the first half of the twentieth century on the trail of a Great President of Hell and the mysterious Man with the Eyes.
Somme, France, 1916
Having heard of a demon in the trenches, David and Luke are sent to the Western Front to investigate, and find an army of soldiers bearing wounds that should kill mortal men.
The third Chronicle in the Tarimain series.
'This war has killed thousands of men. It has ripped up the lives of citizens across the world. And for what? Neither side knows what they're fighting for; they do it because they're told to, because they're told it's for the country, or the glory, or the adventure. The fact is, it doesn't matter; whoever wins, we've all lost. They go up there to die; and if they don't, we shoot them anyway. Stanford gave us this to control us, we are compelled to do as he says, it's not much different to following orders; but he did give us immortality.
'Who then is the bigger monster? The human who orders his subjects to die? Or the demon who gives us everlasting life?'
