Lady Daria's sojourn in a convent takes a spiritual turn when a priest confides that she's one of the gifted the apostle Paul spoke about in a letter. Her gift of healing is tested when she saves church knight Gianni from the hands of a sorcerer. Gianni and Father Piero are also gifted, and they bond while waiting for others to join their ranks.
Faith and hope are tested when Daria's adoptive uncle links with the dark one. Everything Daria holds dear is threatened as the gifted fight the church and the unholy.
Holy zeal and righteous belief take the stage in this unusual good vs. evil story. After a slow beginning, the pace picks up and cannonballs to the end in this mind- and soul-enhancing novel. (Aug., 367 pp., $23.95)
