(Spin-Off to Crossroads Saga – Prequel to The Chosen Knights) can be read as stand-alone
Michael and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day.
All is peaceful throughout the land until the Fallen and demons’ presences were felt in the between and on Earth. As the Venators investigate these locations, they will quickly learn how dangerous their lives are. Hearts will be broken. Teammates will lose their lives. And they will face obstacles which will test their faith.
As danger grows, the fear of fallen angels and demons regrouping has the Divine Elders on pins and needles. Now, Zachary and Lucia, along with Uncle Davin, must prepare themselves—mentally and physically—to live on Earth to investigate where the focal point of evil resides before it’s too late.
There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.
I so appreciated the story of the Venators, demon hunters. Their story was very intriguing. In my opinion, their story was even more captivating than the Crossroads saga.I loved Lucia. The girl had a heart too big for an angel who was supposed to stay emotion-free. I suspect that was her mother’s influence in her DNA. She also had Claudia’s boldness. Where it took her mom a while to find her strength, Lucia found hers sooner and embraced it by the end of the book.
My favorite, however, was Eli—a demon with heart. He knew what fate had in store for him, but he risked it anyway. In the end, it wasn’t himself that he saved. If you have to fall in love with a guy from the wrong side of eternity, it should definitely be one like Eli.
I loved these books. I just hate that I’ve got to wait until October to finish reading the story!
