Description - The Holy by Daniel Quinn

This is a dazzling metaphysical thriller in which four people traverse a sinister landscape. Shamans called them guardians, mythmakers called them tricksters, pagans called them gods, churchmen called them demons, folklorists called them shape-shifters - they've obligingly taken any role mankind has assigned them, and, while needing nothing from humans, have accepted whatever they thought was their due - love, hate, fear, worship, condemnation, neglect and oblivion. Even in modern times, when their existence is doubted or denied, they continue to extend invitations to those who would travel a different road, a road not found on any cultural map. But now, perceiving mankind as a threat to life itself, they issue these invitations with an urgent purpose. In this extraordinary metaphysical thriller, four of those who have put themselves in the hands of these Others venture across a sinister landscape hidden from normal view, finding their way to interlocking destinies of death, terror, transcendental rapture and shattering enlightenment.
