Description

"Don't you know? Animals like you have no soul."

Could God ever love a half-blood society looks on with such fear and disdain? Jace once believed so, but when a tragic loss shatters the only peace he's ever known, his faith crumbles as the nagging doubts he's tried to put behind him descend on his grieving heart. With them come the haunting memories of the bloodstained past he longs to forget, but can never escape.

Taken from home at a young age and raised to serve the emperor, Kyrin Altair and her twin brother live every day under a dangerous pretense of loyalty. After her unique observation skills and perfect memory place her into direct service to the emperor, Kyrin finds herself in further jeopardy as it becomes increasingly difficult to hide her belief in Elôm, the one true God.

Following the emperor's declaration to enforce the worship of false gods under the penalty of death, many lives are put in danger. But there are those willing to risk everything to take a stand and offer aid to the persecuted. With their lives traveling paths they never could have imagined, Jace and Kyrin must fight to overcome their own fears and conflicts with society as they become part of the resistance.

Review quote

"It's rare I stumble into a book this great without help from my reader and author friends recommending it first, but I absolutely did and am so glad. Now I get to go tell all of them 'You must read this.'" -- Nancy Kimball, author of Chasing the Lion

"From the first sentence, this story grabs you, refusing to let you go until you've finished it. I have read a lot of fantasy, and a lot of Christian fantasy, but I can only name a small handful of books that come near to the quality of this work...There is a level of realism and relatability that I have only very rarely seen before. The plot is thick and suspenseful, and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end." -- Sarah Westmoreland for Readers' Favorite
