CSFF: The Begotten By Lisa T. Bergren

Song Stuck on the Brain: I Cross My Heart by George Straight

Today the CSFF is touring:

My Take:

The Begotten is the first book The Gifted series and is a well researched, well written novel full of intrigue and suspense. It puts me in mind of books like llluminated by Matt Bronleewe and The Watchers by Mark Andrew Olsen. Both of which I also loved. Take my advice, if you like this style, you'll enjoy The Begotten.

About the Book:

The year is 1339, and a secret a half millennium old is on the brink of being exposed.

Centuries ago, Paul's letters became part of the foundation of the Christian canon. only a few know of another letter, potentially written by Paul. Kept secret for generations, suppressed by the authorities of the Church, it speaks of mn and women who, though begotten of men, possess mysterious spiritual gifts. The letter survived. So has the Church's fear of it.

The time has come for the Gifted to gather. Even as they grow in power, so do their enemies. They must race against tie to find the rest of the Gifted , and to decipher the prophecy that foretold of their coming. For only by combining their powers will they vanquish those determined to destroy them and uncover the secret of the letter that will determine the fate of the Church... and the world.
