“Vero, you remember you once said there were people who would follow me to the gates of hell?”

“A figure of speech.”

“We’d better find them. That’s where we’re going.”

After the defeat of the evil Dominion forces at Farholme, Commander Merral D’Avanos prepares a task force to rescue thirty hostages captured by the fleeing Margrave Lezaroth. Merral’s only hope is that he can get to the hostages before they’re taken to Lord-Emperor Nezhuala at the Blade of Night—the nexus of the Dominion’s power. But in order to get there, Merral and his crew will have to survive a perilous trip through Below Space. Meanwhile, news of the Dominion’s defeat at Farholme reaches Ancient Earth but is tempered by the sobering truth of the enemy’s growth and strength. It is now clear that an attack on the Assembly is imminent, but how far should the Assembly go to stop it? And does the real danger lie in the Dominion or in the subtle evil that has arrived at the heart of the Assembly itself? The Infinite Day is the thrilling conclusion to the epic Lamb among the Stars series that has readers and critics raving.

About the Author:

Born in Wales, Chris Walley grew up in northern England. He studied earth sciences at university and has a doctorate in geology. He taught at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon from 1980 to 1984 and then returned to Wales and spent ten years as a consultant with the oil industry. He began writing in the late eighties and had two novels, Heart of Stone and Rock of Refuge, published under the pseudonym of John Haworth. In 1994, along with his family, Chris returned to Lebanon to teach again at AUB. In 1998, he came back to Wales and began writing again. He is currently fitting his writing in between teaching geology, environmental science, and geography at a local college. Chris and his wife live in an old cottage on the edge of Swansea.

Review:

By any definition, The Infinite Day is a triumphant conclusion to The Lamb Among the Stars series. Since this is the final book in this series, if you’ve been reading it, you’re going to keep reading it. And if you haven’t, why not? Hopefully, this final review will help persuade you.

When you’ve been reading about a storyline and specific characters for over a thousand pages, there are certain things that are necessary to make a satisfying conclusion.

First of all, there has to be a significant payoff to the main storyline. The Infinite Day pays it off and gives back change. Every single element is resolved satisfactorily and then some. You want drama? It’s here. Massive confrontation between good and evil? It’s here. Significant sci-fi elements all tied in together? Ditto. This climax is mind-blowing.

Second of all, there has to be a satisfactory resolution for each major character’s “arc.” In this series, there have been two primary protagonists—Merral D’Avanos and Vero—along with two major antagonists—Margrave Lezaroth and Lord-Emperor Nezhuala. Each one of them come to a very specific resolution, as do a number of the supporting cast.

And third... it’s not enough to have a major dramatic climax. There must be an ending—a very real conclusion that leaves us satisfied and happy about it all. In this case, The Infinite Day is beautiful. Eternity is a subject that has often been poorly portrayed in fiction. The Bible tells us that our minds can’t even imagine the things God has prepared for us. So why is it so few authors have even bothered to let their imaginations run wild? After all, our wildest imagination just isn’t wild enough. It’s even better than that. Chris Walley has not been afraid to let his imagination be set free, and he’s given us a truly inspiring vision, one that I’m sure I’ll be re-reading frequently. . . . This series ranks among the best on my shelves. The Lamb Among the Stars has actually lived up to its cover hype—a triumph of imagination. Highly Recommended. (Christian Fiction Review)

Here at last we have the third volume in this epic series, larger than the others by a small margin. But what is inside blows the scope of what has gone before . . . confrontations are huge and against all odds, as we have come to expect from this author. . . . For this is the battle at the end of time, recognisable as a highly imaginative extrapolation of some of the events in the book of Revelation. But don’t expect the tale to be familiar—it’s anything but. With twists and surprises at every step, depth of character rarely seen in fiction, and the very best of science fiction action, the conclusion to this massive series is as mind-blowing as it is masterful.
