Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker teams with Tosca Lee to create this gripping thriller set in a desolate future.
Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.
Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love.
But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed.
Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.

Don't miss out on a great book!

I have read most of Ted Dekker's books and love them. I almost didn't get this one due to some of the negative reviews. I am so glad I didn't listen and went with my heart. It is now one of my favorites! I can't wait for the next in the series!!!

Not Worth Paying For!

True garbage! Story has every opportunity to be ground breaking, but at every turn fails to get there. Words just to have words. Heroes are so predictable, that you know what is going to happen chapters ahead of happening. I expected more out of this well known team.
