"City-by-city, kingdom-by-kingdom, the Palleseen have sworn to bring Perfection and Correctness to an imperfect world. As their legions scour the world of superstition with the bright flame of reason, so they deliver a mountain of ragged, holed and scorched flesh to the field hospital tents just behind the front line. Which is where Yasnic, one-time priest, healer and rebel, finds himself. Reprieved from the gallows and sent to war clutching a box of orphan Gods, he has been sequestered to a particularity unorthodox medical unit. Led by 'the Butcher', an ogre of a man who's a dab hand with a bone-saw and an alchemical tincture, the unit's motley crew of conscripts, healers and orderlies are no strangers to the horrors of war. Theirs is an unspeakable trade: elbow-deep in gore they have a first-hand view of the suffering caused by flesh-rending monsters, arcane magical weaponry and embittered enemy soldiers. Entrusted - for now - with saving lives deemed otherwise un-saveable, the field hospital's crew face a precarious existence. Their work with unapproved magic, necromancy, demonology and Yasnic's thoroughly illicit Gods could lead to the unit being disbanded, arrested or worse. Beset by enemies within and without, the last thing anyone needs is a miracle..."--Amazon.… (mer)

Follow-up to City of Last Chances, it follows one of the characters—an embittered priest who can’t seem to get rid of his god of healing—who’s captured by the fascist Palleseen and put to work in an experimental hospital, where they allow otherwise forbidden magics if they’re in the service of healing Palleseen soldiers. The various characters all have their reasons for aiding the war machine, from ambition to dull acceptance, and the key question of the book is whether there is anything in the future but relentless horror for them. I quite enjoyed it (despite this description!). ( )

This is sort of Mash by way of Perdido Street Station, or a dirty dozen of conscripts and criminals deal with what comes out of the grinders of war waged by the purifying army of Pall. Pocket Gods down to their last worshiper give service in the hospital tent of the Butcher in an army that consumes Gods to fuel the weapons and machines of its wars, deals with demons and herds ghosts. An army which has no place for a healed soldier who, according to the rules of the God who brought them back from the brink of death, can do nothing to harm another person without being immediately un-healed. It takes the length of a rather long book to work it's way through to a significant conclusion, but no reader can say it wasn't telegraphed. ( )
