Der Vogelgott (The Bird God)
Röckel Vogelgott

A great narrator and a grim story – a terrific novel!

The members of a science-oriented family are drawn into the elusive myth of a Bird God through a coincidental discovery in a church picture, which has an undertow that neither they nor the reader can resist. Especially as soon as it turns out that this myth is not just a myth…

The devotees of the Bird God live in a fabulous but wretched area of the earth, and appear not so much to be devoted to him as to have surrendered. In this irresistible novel, a secret world emerges as ours, in which nature abandons its friendship and we face its aggression and gloom.
