A raging darkness. Four bruised & broken teens. Only one outcome.
Super powers are sweet, but it will take more than lightning speed or teleportation to overcome the force of darkness that threatens the fate of the world. Broken and bruised as Demarcus, Lily, Harry, and Sarah Jane are after the battle at Hyde Pier, there is little time to rest. The clock is ticking. Lives are at stake. And in order to emerge victorious, each teen will have to look inside and humbly seek grace.
Sometimes the toughest battles take place within ourselves. After all, it is when we are weak that we are strong.
And the Anointed are going to need all the strength they can get to come out of this alive.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Rise of the Anointed series and eagerly awaited its conclusion. Which is more of a new beginning of sorts – the ending left things open for an entirely new set of adventures. Sweet!
The characters I’ve grown to love throughout the series are back and facing the most formidable situation yet. A supernatural enemy. Mobs of people raging at one another, doing all sorts of despicable things… The Anointed trying to rescue SJ from her kidnapper. Whoever that might be.
I love the way the author presented spiritual truths in such an entertaining manner. While there is nothing preachy about Anointed, it clearly shows clearly the danger of allowing anger to grow and fester.
