Death Masks (novel) - Plot Points Introduced

Plot Points Introduced

  • Denarians: The Denarians are unions of a human host and a Fallen Angel. There are thirty Fallen, each bound to a tarnished silver Roman denarius which bears its respective Fallen's sigil; the thirty denarii represent the thirty pieces of silver paid to the apostle Judas to betray Jesus, and may possibly be those very coins.
  • Fellowship of Saint Giles: The Fellowship of St. Giles (named for the patron saint of lepers and other Outcasts) is made up of people who are half-human and more specifically those who have been infected by Red Court vampires but have yet to drink the lifeblood of another human to complete their transformation. The Fellowship helps its members control their urges, support each other, and fight the vampires who infected them.
  • Nicodemus says the war between the Knights of the Cross and The Denarians is 20 centuries old (page 352).
  • This book takes place "a few years" after 1997, when the Shroud was nearly destroyed in a mysterious fire (page 28).

Famous quotes containing the words introduced, plot and/or points:

    How can one explain all the time and thought that goes into raising a child, all the opportunities for mistakes, all the chances to recover and try again? How does one break the news that nothing permanent can be formed in an instant—children are not weaned, potty trained, taught manners, introduced to civilization in one or two tries—as everyone imagined.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    The plot was most interesting. It belonged to no particular age, people, or country, and was perhaps the more delightful on that account, as nobody’s previous information could afford the remotest glimmering of what would ever come of it.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    Mankind is not a circle with a single center but an ellipse with two focal points of which facts are one and ideas the other.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
