    Trying to remember a book mentioned in the fantasy forum

    A while back, a bunch of members were really plugging this fantasy novel, the premise of which sounded really kickass. From what I remember, the premise was that a bunch of souls entered the afterlife to find heaven besieged by the forces of hell, and it looked as if heaven was losing the war. Could someone please find the name of this book for me because I really want to check it out. Thanks!

    Could it be the book mentioned in this thread?. If you scroll up some more posts, there's another post regarding a book about souls.

    Are you sure it's fantasy ?

    Sounds a bit like Iain M Banks latest Culture novel Surface Detail

    It begins in the realm of the Real, where matter still matters. It begins with a murder. And it will not end until the Culture has gone to war with death itself. Lededje Y'breq is one of the Intagliated, her marked body bearing witness to a family shame, her life belonging to a man whose lust for power is without limit. Prepared to risk everything for her freedom, her release, when it comes, is at a price, and to put things right she will need the help of the Culture. Benevolent, enlightened and almost infinitely resourceful though it may be, the Culture can only do so much for any individual. With the assistance of one of its most powerful - and arguably deranged - warships, Lededje finds herself heading into a combat zone not even sure which side the Culture is really on. A war - brutal, far-reaching - is already raging within the digital realms that store the souls of the dead, and it's about to erupt into reality. It started in the realm of the Real and that is where it will end. It will touch countless lives and affect entire civilizations, but at the centre of it all is a young woman whose need for revenge masks another motive altogether.

    Naw, this was out about six years ago or more, and yes I'm sure it's fantasy.
