Her most stunning novel yet - the final instalment of the Crucible. the battle for mankind's soul draws to its terrible conclusion - and it is far worse than anything thomas Neville had thought possible. the angels have been scheming for aeons, and they don't intend to allow either thomas Neville or Hal Bolingbroke to spoil their triumph. Where Neville thought he had choice, he finds only despair; where he thought he'd found love, he finds only the angels entrapments. England is reeling under supernatural plagues and treachery-driven rebellions. Mankind's fate rests on the outcome of three battles: Agincourt, where Bolingbroke challenges Philip for Catherine and for France; the sacrificial ground before Joan's pyre, where Neville must choose between his love for Margaret and the will of the angels; and the Field of the Angels itself - Heaven, where Christ watches and waits.
