When the battle with the hive ended in flames, the village Oneness expected to pick up life where they left off.
But fire does not leave anyone unscathed. Haunted by images of the fire and desperate to know the truth about her destiny, April wrestles with inner demons that threaten to cut her off from those she loves most. Meanwhile, Andrew Hunter faces the reality of life with a wife and daughter he does not know–a wife whose resurrection has made her more than a stranger to him.
Six hundred years before, Teresa is equally embattled as questions of life, death, and revelation bring her to the edge of the greatest war of all: the war for humanity’s soul.
As their stories converge, the Oneness across the ages must press into the Spirit they hardly know, with only one certain promise:
From the ashes, truth will rise.
