In the first book in the epic Lamb among the Stars series, author Chris Walley weaves the worlds of science and the spirit, technology and supernatural into something unique in science fiction. Twelve thousand years into the future, the human race has spread across the galaxy to hundreds of terraformed worlds. The effects of the Fall have been diminished by the Great Intervention, and peace and contentment reign under the gentle rule of the Assembly. But suddenly, almost imperceptibly, things begin to change. On the remotest planet of Farholme, Forester Merral D'Avanos hears one simple . . . lie. Slowly a handful of men and women begin to realize that evil has returned and must be fought. What will this mean for a people to whom war and evil are ancient history? Thus begins the epic that has been described as "If C. S. Lewis and Tolkien had written Star Wars." The Shadow and Night was previously published in two volumes: The Shadow at Evening and The Power of the Night.

This was SUCH a good book!! It was long, (over 500 pages and with small print) but worth every bit of time it took. The main characters were likable but not flawless, and their struggles against evil and invasion were very believable. Set in the future, The Shadow and the Night outlined a believable society, over 50 light years away from anywhere else. Truly the end of the world! This book is great science-fiction with a Christian message. Absolutely amazing! Written from a postmillennielist viewpoint. (Which basically means the millennium will happen by the gradual Christianizing of the world.)
