'A burning map. Every epic,' my friend Jack used to say, 'should start with a burning map.' (from the first line)
A smash hit in England, this dark epic fantasy is an extraordinary, incendiary debut from a bold new talent. It is 2017, when a fallen angel and a renegade devil are about to settle a feud that reaches back to the beginnings of human existence.
From the Publisher:
In 2017, beings that were once human gather to fight to control the Vellum, but to the Irish angel Phreedom it has become clear that there is no divine or diabolic plan at work, only a vicious battle between the hawks of Heaven and Hell.
Annotation:
Vast in scope and mythic in its themes, this debut novel by Hal Duncan is a wide-ranging science fiction tour-de-force set largely in the future (2017) but also in Babylonian legend, World War I, and the turn of the 21st century. Hal Duncan's universe, known to the characters within it as the Vellum, is multi-dimensional, folding in on itself in a dizzying spectacle of literary and historical allusion. Appropriately, the book folds in on itself as well, with ancient Sumerian goddesses traveling through the deserts and temples of their own time one minute, and jumping into the leather-jacket cyberpunk cool of motorcycles and nanotechnology the next. VELLUM, the first in a two-book story collectively titled THE BOOK OF ALL HOURS, was nominated for the 2008 Nebula Award for Best Novel.
