I had a hard time putting that one down the first time around. The prose is fantastically layered.

The more overtly religious (again, not necessarily specifically Catholic) stuff in that one is in the Coda.

Well, to me that just sounded like typical fantasy-cleric type stuff. When I think overtly religious I think of something like CS Lewis' Narnia.

I'll have to dig out my copy and take a second look.

You may like his writing, but the only reason I would buy the remaining books in that series would be for closure of the story line, and I can't bring myself to do that. I do not recall anything in the story line that was overtly Catholic. Maybe I should go look at them again.

Well, your opinion is clearly wrong.
