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!!!

This three book series was wonderfully written and masterfully performed to create a striking parallel to the struggle of Christ and the Christian Life. As Rom and his three friends struggled to understand the destiny that have been dropped in their laps, an amazing journey unfolds before them. It not only affects them but will come to influence every living being on the face of the Earth. As they search for truth and meaning, one figure stands at the center; young boy named Jonathan. As he grows into his destiny, protected by those that believe, many struggles come to play. A dark and unflinching evil threatens to destroy everything they have sacrificed so much for. It is Jonathan and the unfailing true belief of those closest to him that prevail, even though they themselves struggle to hold on, doubtful, wondering if there really is a reason for all that has happened. The resulting climax is so poignant and meaningful that , whether you believe or not, you will know that there is so much more to this life then we can see with just our eyes. We must simply know it in our hearts and Love Unconditionally.
