    The Shack by William P. Young (Desmorph)
    Desmorph: Thrones for the Innocent is a stunning compliment to The Shack. It addresses the metaphysical mysteries of ontology and theology without preaching. Where The Shack speaks directly to and about God and the Christian Trinity; Thrones is both subliminal and aggressive. Thrones helped me deal with the frustration I felt in my own heart about the paradox of the existence of evil and and all-loving all-powerful Creator. Thrones is very spiritual and yet avoids struggling with the convolution of structured religion. it should raise some eyebrows as well as quiet some tortured hearts.… (more)

Thrones for the Innocent takes every parents worse nightmare and spins it into a vehicle for dealing with the vexing problem of evil and the nature of God. Though the author never speaks directly of the deity, it is clear that the intent of the novel is to address the paradox between the existence of real evil and the will of an omni-benevolent Creator. Where The Shack (William P. Young) makes no bones about the role of the Christian Trinity and the origin of evil from man's desire for individualism; Thrones allows for human free-will but does not condone true evil. In other words, though man freely chooses to commit evil and exercise his appetites, there are still cosmic repercussions. The "powers-that-be" don't have to like what you've decided to do... and justice is served in this book--something lacking in The Shack. The frightening reality of child abduction and filicide are covered very tastefully and the characters are realistic. The heroine is as faulted as any of us and yet loved enough by (God?) to be allowed to evolve into a being of greater purpose. This book grabbed me by the soul and shook me like no other spiritual story. If there are 2 books you should read back-to-back it is Thrones for the Innocent and The Shack. ( )

“It’s a poor sort of memory that only
works backwards.”
—The White Queen to Alice
from Through the Looking-Glass
by Lewis Carroll
For my own guardian angels—my two treasures: Ryan and
Aeryn. May they never loose their way.
First words
Oh, that little bitch!
Mothers never let go
That was where Then ended and Now began.
The truth of the matter is
that, although free will persists, it means
They were before life and after death, born of the
cosmos, and mated with the stuff that falls between Time.
They now tread with orders of Angels too numerous to
account; and too pure to comprehend.
They had become Necessary.
I am your end!

Book description
Alexandra D’Meiter is a young woman at odds with herself and the obstacles that Fate has strewn across her path. Three years prior, in the wake of an irresponsible drinking binge at a crowded beach, Alex lost her five-year old daughter.
Now, with her daughter still missing, Alex—sober and cynical—buries herself in her anesthesia practice. She focuses her energies on her career and sobriety and is reluctantly settling into an uncompromising rut when a single, strange night at her hospital changes everything. Two mysterious patients impact Alex’s life in a way that immediately challenges her belief system and sets into motion events that will forever alter Alex’s experience of the world.
