With the departure of God from his creation, all of existence
now teeters on the edge of oblivion. In the absence of any
divine guidance, the archangel Michael must find a way to
stem the tide of destruction - and that means a visit to the
only one who can know the future with any certainty: Destiny
of the Endless. But whatever insight Michael gains from the
cryptic Destiny, it cannot protect against the threat which
has just awoken, hungry to fulfil the terrible dictates of
its nature. Only Lucifer Morningstar can see what is coming
to Yggdrasil, the World Tree, and what will happen at its
roots when it arrives. The hour of the wolf is at hand, and
its echoes may reach out to shake the foundations of Lucifer's
cosmos as well as our own...
Wolf Beneath the Tree is,

up in arms - God away from Heaven and Lucifer doing what he
believes to be the right thing.

tries to do the right thing but is just a little misguided.
is the not idilic place mankind has made it into - far from
it. Everything is messed up!
in this collection include the last few days in the life of
a young man who is destined to commit suicide - thanks to
a demon possession, and the messed up mind of a man who killed
his wife and daughter, but believes they are still very much
alive and waiting for him to join them.
of the most intelligently written collections I have read
in a long time.
