So now we've got the nobleman turned priest turned nobleman, married to a demon who has given him a daughter, caught up in intrigues of the English court, all in the quest for a mysterious chest that holds answers to everything related to Thomas Neville's duty to rid the world of demons.

Thomas' character remains irritatingly narrow-minded, but then again, that fits him perfectly for this tale: it wouldn't move the way it does if he were likeable :-)

Most of the important scenes happen in England, where a new untried king turns out to be arrogant, impudent, and overall bad news for the country, whose peasants are getting more and more angry about taxes and being treated like chattel. Joan of Arc is getting her act together in France too, on *her* Archangel Michael-given mission of God against the English.

Definitely interesting stuff, and a great read.
