Forbes, focused on keeping everyone safe during pre-revolution riots in the dictator-ruled nation, ignores the warning.Marc’s scheme, including romancing the attractive green-eyed Kerri, unfolds without a snag—until the bodies start piling up, and the Hound of Heaven picks up his trail.

the fate of the Three Kingdoms

Karina and Tristan lead their ragtag group into the wilds of Tzedek on a desperate journey to the demolished temple, praying they find remnants to point them to the last two pieces of the sacred armor. But Faramos and his minions are closing in.

Karina strives to be the leader the group needs as each clue draws them to the next dead end. Despite their failures, they find help in unlikely places, seek advice from the most unusual people, and adventure to places they never thought they’d go.

Join Karina and Tristan in this epic conclusion to their fantastical journey as they attempt to defeat the ancient evil infecting their world—even when standing up against the enemy may be the last thing they ever do.
