Publisher's Summary

Two enemy factions race toward a childbirth: The Circle of Benediction, a secret society whose mission is to destroy anyone with supernatural abilities, and the Watchers, an underground group sworn to protect those with powers.
The Watchers, led by Jacob Pennington, an elderly man of unnatural strength, secure the child just before the Circle destroys him. But, can they keep him alive despite the Circle's resources?
Held up at Pennington's Rampart Industries, the Watchers will make their stand. Will they withstand the assault without the assistance of the child, or the child's blood?
The birth of this child changes everything...and so would his death.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

When people began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that they were fair; and they took wives for themselves of all that they chose. Then the Lord said, “My spirit shall not abide in mortals forever, for they are flesh; their days shall be one hundred twenty years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went in to the daughters of humans, who bore children to them.— Genesis 6:1–4,

Any additional comments?

A cold was has been brewing for a millennium between two powerful agencies awaiting the birth of a divine being said to bring evolutionary change to humanity. Today, that cold war has ended and all out war has begun! Rampart Enterprises needs baby Zachary to live because they believe that the divine child will be the Shepard of the Herminites - gifted beings that live within the walls of Rampart Enterprises. Through Zacharies leadership it is foreboded that the Herminites will will clear the world of pestilence, hunger and disease. The Center of Benidiction, however; needs the baby to die because they believe that the Herminites are really the offspring of the Nephelams - products of the joining between angels and humans and thus a threat to the human race.What will be the outcome to humanity if a race of beings capable of manipulating nature through divine power should prevail the Earth. How do we as mere mortals fair in the outcome? Are we to be perceived as disease harboring organisms to be cleansed from the Earth through some Herminite sterilization process? This is the fear of the Circle of Benediction. Perhaps we will profit from the Hermites as benefactors with the goal of freeing us from disease, birth defects and other plagues of humanity as the prophets of Rampart Enterprises foretell. Your own prediction to humanities outcome will place you on either the side of the Circle of Benidiction or Rampart Enterprises. No matter which side you take the other side will be evil. This book made me evaluate the paradigm in which I perceive “good” and “evil”. Although the book is categorized as Christian, I think that it can transcend its Christian rubric by those that can accept that religions are faith bound constructs that exist as strong ideologies with good and evil at the forefront. The problem is are we certain of what is defined as good or evil. Can you imagine a world without disease, human plagues or war. Sound ideal, but then ask yourself, how many people can the Earth sustain during rampant human growth. How close do you want to live to your neighbor. Without the four horsemen galloping through the cities, it is possible that your your city will be so crowded that your neighbors will be sleeping in your living room and sharing your food. Keeping this in mind - “nescitis quid petatis”, Latin for “be careful what you wish for”

suprisingly good!

I enjoyed the story. Special abilities that come from angels or aliens, don't know which yet. Good narration. Looking forward to the next.
