Can one child be the world’s salvation? Or might he push it to the edge of destruction?

James Callahan isn’t a typical seven-year-old. Two years after disappearing with his desperate mother, a harrowing home invasion leaves James badly shaken and his mother brutally murdered. Ben Callahan had almost given up hope of seeing his lost son again, but the reunion isn’t all that Ben might have hoped. Traumatized by his mother’s death, James is slow to come out of his shell and events no one can quite explain surround the reunited family. Ben’s relatives and fiancée become enmeshed in the oddities that follow James like a specter he can’t shake. What really happened in a park when James’s sympathetic suffering seemed to save a heart attack victim? What do James’s vivid dreams signify? Is someone stalking the family? A late night intruder has the Callahans reeling, before events spin out of their control entirely.

Could James really be the key to an apocalyptic struggle foretold by a tormented ecclesiastic? Two powerful organizations operating in the shadows think so and engage in a deadly competition to acquire and control James. One uses the trappings of a self-help movement to mask far darker motivations and will neutralize James if they can’t control him. The other does nothing to hide that it’s a cult formed around a charismatic would-be prophet and thinks that James could trigger God’s reckoning on the world, leaving it all to burn. When these two ruthless factions ignite a bloody holy war in the streets of Boston, can the Callahan family survive? Can anyone?

Ben learns where James spent his missing years when the secretive group that protected him intervenes at a crucial juncture. Can Ben overcome his skepticism and rely on these modern knights to navigate the deadly pitfalls and impossible choices that beset the family at every turn? Can he give James the chance to survive into adulthood and embrace his destiny? Or is James doomed to become the casualty of a conflict foretold centuries ago that could engulf the world in catastrophe? When one false move could mean destruction beyond imaginations, what’s the ordinary father of an extraordinary child to do? Ben needs to figure it out quickly, before everything he loves is lost.
