In some ways, this body of work brings to mind The Historian by Kostova, because here too is an intelligent, compelling literary read, that goes far beyond the drips of blood and the ghoulish thrills, based on great attention to historical detail.

The Lamb of God presents a rich yarn, embroidered skillfully with threads of mystery, historical fiction, and vampire lore. Unlike The Historian, which suffers from long passages that read like a graduate school dissertation on the life of Dracula, the research here is well integrated with the story. Also, because the author has a complete vision of his dark universe, he divided the story from the start into a well-structured series of books, of which this book is a prequel.

The first chapter is a high level retelling of the story of Creation, which is the philosophical underlining, the concept holding together the entire series: the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. While Lucifer wanders the earth, his three bothers, consumed with jealousy of him, entice God to create Man, in His own image. This is the beginning of a bitter feud, in which Lucifer plans to win the battle for souls by turning man against God. The next chapters bring you in to witness the crucifixion of Christ, as if you were standing there, watching Mary collapse to her knees.
