“Hardship often prepares an ordinary person for an extraordinary destiny.”
If your fate has already been chosen for you, would you change it if you could?
When the days are undressed with uncertainty, it’s the fate of a man's heart that gets him through it. In this apocalyptic fiction novel, faith will be the key for survival. While only a few will endure the tribulation, most will perish in what will be considered the darkest age in our history.
Fifteen-year-old Arena Power blindly accepts her destiny in a world filled with tragedy, chaos, and a lingering wickedness that will tempt every man's soul until the last days on Earth. Set in the United States in the year 2053, America, like most of the world, has undergone catastrophic earthquakes, famine, and an economic collapse, which has rendered the nation hopeless. It has turned to other nations, like Russia and China, to help restore what was once a world power. Unfortunately, the new America has grossly caused civil unrest that will eventually be the precursor to a much bigger war of biblical proportions.
Orphaned at the age of nine, Arena and her twin brother, Gabe, have learned to rely on each other through the toughest times. Not only do they share the same birthday and the tragic loss of their parents, they both have a birthmark on the back of their necks in the shape of a crucifix—a small sign of the destiny that will soon follow. On their fifteenth birthday, they receive a mystery letter and key from their estranged Uncle Finnegan. This key will unlock their fate, and it will be up to a priest, who has vowed to protect them since birth, to unfold the layers of their destiny—to undo the evil that has spoiled the world, and to help unleash God's wrath upon those who have turned from Him in the last days of history.
This raw and graphic character driven story weaves righteousness with evil, treachery with truth, and shows just how far the will of man can survive on faith alone. Arena and Gabriel's fate will determine that course of history for which has already been written. They were not born to save the world; they were chosen to prepare it for the final days.
Arena has left the nation's administration with a dead president and a weakened military, and while the tragic memories continue to scar her, the government struggles to regroup without its leader. For the people who still remain in hiding, it's evident the country is all but lost, and with Russian operatives taking over, the nation's hope of recovering is grim.
After months in hiding, Arena and her brother, Gabriel, fight to survive the aftermath while they trudge through unkindly terrain across the country to rejoin their friends, but what they soon discover may staunch their journey. The government's failed attempt to rebirth a broken nation has caused civil unrest like no other.
After returning home, Arena's decision to stay changes when she discovers the secrets of a refugee camp behind a clandestine group of rebels, known as the Southern Resistance. With an opportunity to escape to a permanent safe haven, Arena risks her life to lead the new fellowship. But the darkest days are upon them, and with a new war brewing, Arena's path will take a dark turn as her survival is in jeopardy.
