An ancient, secret letter has long prophesied that the Gifted would gather. One with the ability to heal, another with the gift of wisdom. Others with the ability to see the future, discern truth, uncover evil intent, or exhibit miraculous powers. Together they are a force, born to change the world. But their gathering has drawn the attention of those who wield power…people determined to either control or destroy them.

“[A] classic battle between good and evil. Disregard Da Vinci Code comparisons, and think Lord of the Rings.” —Publishers Weekly

He watched as his master was tied to a stake and a great fire was set. Tears he thought spent rose in his eyes, yet he refused to look away as the flames licked upward, as the heat made him retreat, step by step. The bishop threw his master’s life’s work—the book, carefully wrapped in a burlap sack—into the fire at the priest’s feet. The burlap swiftly burned and curled, revealing the lambskin cover of the priceless book. It too began to burn.

The priest glanced over at the boy, a quiet question in his eyes.

The boy patted his shirt in response, reassuring his master, feeling the sacred pages next to his skin.

Go, child. Go! The boy shook his head in confusion; he could hear the priest, even though the old man’s parched lips moved not.

The boy glanced over at the bishop, his face and grand robe dancing eerily in the heat
waves between them. The bishop’s eyes narrowed, and he beckoned to the boy.

Run! Run, child!

Looking at his master one last time, the boy turned and fled into the night.

“Nay,” she said, shaking her head, her eyes blurred with tears. “I shall never serve you. I belong to the light. I belong to the light. I belong to the light...”

He let her go, then, and she turned to face him, sobs wracking her body.

He gazed at her sadly. “You weaken, my love. Mayhap it will take the boy dying, then the artist. Finally the old woman. I will make them suffer every one of their last moments. I shall force you to watch. Or you will agree to my terms.”

“Away from me, Satan. Away from me.”

He smiled at her with a hollow look, sighed heavily, and then left.

Daria turned to the wall and bent her forehead to the cool stone, praying through her sobs. “Oh my God, my God. Come to us. Save us. Save us. Please, Lord Jesus. Please.” She sank to her knees, still weeping. “I beg you. Please Lord. I cannot watch my loved ones suffer. I cannot. Come to us. We are fragmented. We are weak. Fight for us. Free us. We need you. We need you.”

Gianni moved forward and turned in a slow circle to look each of them in the eye. He understood the collective panic among them. “The Lord has seen this day. He has seen it. He knows what is to come, and none of it is a surprise to him. Should he allow it, we shall trust it, always praising his name. We do the greatest damage to our enemy by keeping to this path, always praising our God, no matter what we face—trial, trauma, or even death.”

Dulcius post tribulations,” Piero said.

“‘Sweeter after difficulty,’” Daria translated.

“Sweeter after difficulty,” Gianni repeated. “The greater the trial, the more our Lord can triumph. No matter what is ahead of us, we shall not abandon our faith.”
