?A glorious finish? (Midwest Book Review) to the acclaimed trilogy of the Gifted. In The Begotten and The Betrayed, Lisa T. Bergren waged ?a classic battle of good and evil? (Publishers Weekly). Now, the war culminates in the most provocative chapter yet in the blessed and powerful mission of the Gifted. Thirteen in number, each of them possesses a divine purpose as catalysts in a war between light and dark. Among them are Sir Gianni de Capezzana and Daria d?Angelo, who must face the church and avoid being burned as heretics. Trailed by the enemy, and on the run in an unpredictable land, they?re offered tenuous sanctuary where they find love? and unknown danger.
