Hallowed Ground by Steven Savile
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Bizarre and kinda hard to follow in the beginning. When Elizabeth dies her fiancee Benjamin makes a deal with Balthazar to bring her back from the dead. He fails to realize that Balthazar intends for him to take Elizabeth's place, Lilith tries to protect him. Years later the Deacon arrives in Rookwood with his companions of misfits to hold a revival, but the Deacon has a dark purpose. Provender Creed (Benjamin/Remliel) sets out to stop him and Balthazar arrives with Mariah (Elizabeth). The lovers are reunited and Mariah leaves her child with Colleen.
