Summary

Moir's promotion to junior priest should have been the best day of his life. He'd worked hard to earn that title... too hard, as it turns out. 
Serving four gods is a complicated road to follow when each god manifests in both Light and Dark aspects, in Good and in deepest Evil. The Creeds are intended to provide a set of guideposts, preventing junior priests from straying into heresies. Senior priests mentor junior priests for the same reason. And junior priests are never, ever sent out by themselves. 
Moir's initial joy at reaching junior rank chills sharply when he learns where he's going next: not to a posting in Bright Bay, as he'd expected, but to Salt City, the most sacred of all Church holdings. By himself. Far from guidance ... and far from his secretly, patiently waiting lover. 
His personal misery is soon swamped by a succession of bizarre and frightening events that force him to confront questions for which the Creeds have no answer. And if gods are involved, either they're of a completely alien sect ... or the Church has been lying all along. 
As the northern kingdom begins its spiral into that dark time later named "The Purge", Moir's choices set him on a uniquely perilous road, binding his future to the whim of creatures that were old before humanity was born. He must decide who he serves: Church, King, gods ... or something so tenebrous and dangerous that it could well overshadow every one of those entities.

    "Screeching in pain and terror, the rogues backed off, but they didn't flee like the Un-Named raiders did. Something seemed to force them back into the fray, making them ignore their fright and their agony to attack again. The flame-bearers' attack faltered as eyes met eyes and the enemy's ability to withstand the Red Tongue was passed quickly among the Named. Firekeepers ... Above the commotion, Ratha heard an agonizing shriek, so raw that she didn't recognize the voice. She whirled, thinking one of the Named had been mortally struck. Instead she saw Bira, not in the battle but on the edge. Her ears were back, her mouth was open, but the sound from her throat wasn't a battle cry but a horrified scream. "They're killing the cubs!" Bira paused only long enough to gather breath and shriek again, even louder. "They're attacking the nursery! They're killing the cubs!"

    A contemporary couple journeys back in time to ancient Ireland in this delightful fantasy by the author of Tea with the Black Dragon. John Thornburn is an artist, mild-mannered and nonviolent. To make ends meet, he teaches some courses in Celtic design. And although his background is half Micmac Indian, he lives in Ireland for two reasons: his far more confrontational and warrior-like girlfriend, Derval O’Keane, and his fascination with the beautiful illuminated manuscript known as the Book of Kells.   But he’s about to take a journey to a far more distant place, one that he could not have imagined. Along with Derval, John will find himself in an ancient Celtic realm, where a Viking attack begs to be avenged and a fantastic—and sometimes terrifying—adventure awaits . . .   From a master of magical fantasy, the author of the Damiano Trilogy and a winner of the John W. Campbell Award, this is a tale of warriors, love, danger, and Irish history that will cast a spell on anyone who dreams of discovering treasures in long-lost worlds.

    Have you ever wished your favorite fantasy world was real? Kiyoi did, and now she’s been sent to stay in that world - Hisagure - until the task given to her is completed. It’s all because of a man who failed to kill Lord Kuraien, a would-be dictator determined to purge the world of the ‘unworthy.’ In this world, her enemies are her friends and her friends are her enemies, but distinguishing between the two isn’t so black and white. And she’s going to need as many friends as she can get when her only reason for being in Hisagure is to kill Lord Kuraien, beloved by his people. She has to succeed regardless of how hard it is, no matter what. Because the penalty for failure is death.

    From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon comes an exciting and thought-provoking science fiction epic—a grand story of annihilation and survival spanning five thousand years. 
    What would happen if the world were ending? 
    A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space. 
    But the complexities and unpredictability of human nature coupled with unforeseen challenges and dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain . . . 
    Five thousand years later, their progeny—seven distinct races now three billion strong—embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown . . . to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth. 
    A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is both extraordinary and eerily recognizable. As he did in Anathem, Cryptonomicon, the Baroque Cycle, and Reamde, Stephenson explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.
