Far away in the remote mountains of Mexico, a great grey-wolf raises its muzzle and curls back his lips to taste the air. The scent of blood stings his palette, and he howls into ancient winds as they paint the mists with death. The winds were born on the battlefield, in a time long past. They saw the Great Purge of King Yoshiyahu. They witnessed the atrocities that were committed in the name of Yahweh, and they moaned in anguish as the blood of the Disciples of Goedric muddied the ground.
The Sons and Daughters of Goedric had fallen, and their once noble creed was trapped in time, drifting like a ripple across an endless sea-with no hope of shore...
---Conceive beauty before child. Be thy brother's keeper and tend to those in need. Walk as the good shepherd who turns the other cheek rather than raise a hand in violence. And as men who yearn for men and women who yearn for women know thy calling---
Prepare to remember what you should never have forgotten!

SoulFire and Tears is book III of the Disciples of Goedric Trilogy, and the first thing i will admit is that while I almost always (as most of us do) have a pretty good idea about the ending of an epic fantassy fiction tale, this time the twist slipped right by me -- even tnough it was right in front of my face. Hats off to the author.When i got half way throught the second book (Guardians of the Blood) I found my self wondering a little how several seemingly unrelated facts and subplots were going to be resolved. Shows you what I know! Without saying too much, sufice it to say that sometimes our own preconceived notions of how things work severely limit our abilities to see the big picture--and a a big picture is exactly what the author paints as SoulFire and Tears reveals and inspires. This book and the entire series for that matter is more than recommended to anyone looking to be entertained as well as intellectually engaged. If you are looking for mindless pulp romance, I suppose you could skip sections here and there and be satisfied. But to be honest it wasnt written that type of audience... in my opinion.If you happen to be gay or lesbian or the parents or close friends of gay men or lesbian women, I am almost sure that The Disciples of Goedric will speak to you in a way that you havent anticipated. It did to me. As the trilogy closed, I actually felt like i knew more about myself than I did before i did before having read it.As with the other two books of this trilogy... five stars. And I hope there are more titles in the works with these same characters. I will be the first to read them!
