Betrayed ~ Review

The Gifted #2
By Lisa T. Bergren

Now I will start off by saying before you read this book you must read Begotten, the first book in the series. This book starts where the Begotten leaves off.

The Gifted have fled their place of refuge as the enemy closed in around them. But fleeing won't stop those who seek to control them and the gifts they have been blessed with. 

Betrayed is an interesting read and as the story progresses it continues to hold one's attention as the Gifted seek to know and do what they are meant to.  If you are looking for a read that has a spiritual aspect to it while offering a well-written and engaging story you have found it in this book and series. "'As it shows in the illuminations,' Daria said. 'The dragon will hunt the peacock.'" This quote taken from the latter few pages of the book gives one a glimpse in what is to come in the final book of the series.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
They have gathered.
And now others gather against them...

An illuminated letter, long buried by the Church—prophesying a fellowship of men and women possessing powerful spiritual gifts—is the catalyst for a profound war that will bring either a new age of enlightenment or a darkness the world has never before seen. As the Gifted gather, gain strength and follow God's clues, their enemies grow determined to control them.

Watching the Gifted from afar is Cardinal Boeri, who wants to use the blessed power of the Gifted to secure his own place in the hierarchy of the Church, while the duke of Venezia has reasons of his own to seize control. But the greatest menace is Lord Abramo Amidei, driven to turn the healer, Daria d'Angelo, to his own fold—or to destroy her. And as he schemes to tear apart the fabric of her faith by preying upon those she loves, Amidei knows that together the Gifted are undeniably strong and growing stronger. But if he can succeed in dividing them, the Gifted—and then the world—will be his.
