Continue where the first book left off in this exciting Christian fantasy story. Follow Anastasia and Captain Teofil into dangers and perils of the unknown. I really enjoyed this book, and can say for me it was the best one. The others were great, but this was my favorite.
This book continues the story of Ana and Teofil's quest to bring Deu to the people of Chiveis. They have fled their beloved home, on penalty of death if they dare to return. They must find a way to survive in the strange lands of the Beyond, meeting both friend and foe along the way. Their faith is tested, and both are tempted as they face death, torture, romance, and tough choices. What will they gain, and how much will they sacrifice?
The book surges through a wide range of emotions. Fear, worry, and longing tempered with plenty of hope, romance, and compassion. It is an epic story perfect for fans of Christian tales of hope and faith melded perfectly in a medieval fantasy tale.
Hundreds of years in the
future, war and disease have destroyed civilization as we know it.
Modern technology has vanished and history is largely forgotten. A
struggling society of survivors has just begun to rebuild, creating
kingdoms of a feudal order.
Exiled from their beloved home of
Chiveis, Teo and Ana journey into foreign lands in search of the second
half of Deu's sacred writings. But finding an ancient manuscript is far
from easy, especially when the pair is tempted, tried, and separated
along the way.
On a quest fraught with unforeseen perils,
murderous villains, and the prejudices of elite societies, the bond
between Teo and Ana is put to the ultimate test. Though the New
Testament might be found in distant Roma, will the price of its
discovery be too high to pay?
