He thought he was prepared to go to war with the Devil, but what if Satan’s not his true enemy?
Ever since the Devil donned a powerful amulet that allows him to walk the Earth, he has grown weaker—and so has his authority. As a result, mutiny is rising in Hell, and the Devil must fight to remain the king of the underworld. Little does he know, there is much more at stake than his title.
After the death of the nun who raised him and his best friend, Jordan Conway cannot think of anything but finding Sophia and keeping her safe. Luckily, he has a team of archangels on his side, and with their help, the two lifelong friends are reunited. But Jordan didn’t expect the reunion to include another of Sister Helen’s charges—the boy he’d loved like a brother but who had pushed him away, Dane. The three orphans never thought their lives would amount to much, but finding their way back to each other is leading them to finding out who they truly are.
All paths converge when the fourteenth sphere, a celestial object with a power like no other, appears at the Met. The angels must keep it from falling into the wrong hands, and soon, the lines between good and evil blur as they find themselves fighting alongside Satan to prevent the unleashing of a dark and dangerous force hell-bent on taking them all down. But in this world, nothing is as it seems, and the mysterious sphere is possibly the least of their concerns…
Get ready for another adventure as the three friends, and the angels they now consider family, travel the globe in search of a way to save each other—and the world.
“Sophia, you always knew the risks.”
“No! I knew the potential for risks. I never knew I would be facing an actual risk before taking my oath!”
Obviously exasperated, Sister Helen shouted, “Neither did I!”
As the words left her mouth, a strong force rammed against the door, presumably the hellhound trying to make his way inside again.
Panic seized me as I realized there was no way out. “Sister Helen, how are we getting out of here? And what exactly is going on?”
Detecting the hysteria in my voice, she crossed the room and placed a hand on my cheek. “Sophia, you have a long road ahead of you before you are safe, so I need you to find the courage to carry on.”
I nodded, not completely understanding her words.
She dropped her hand. “That man out there is Satan.”
“I know,” I interrupted.
She fixed me with an admonishing glare, and I shut my mouth.
“I don’t know how he found out about this place, but he did. We’ve kept something from him for years—a book and a black onyx sphere—and I’m sure that’s why he’s here now. To seek his revenge.”
“Then just give him what he wants!”
“I can’t do that. What he wants is far too precious. Besides, I don’t have those items anymore. I sent them away with Jordan.”
“Jordan? He’s involved in this?” I had grown up with Jordan at the orphanage and we were so close, we were practically siblings. I didn’t know if I should feel betrayed by his secrecy, or relieved that I wasn’t in this alone.
“It was his trial of trust.”
“He’s a Sacrarium Novice, too?”
There was another thud against the door.
“We don’t have time for this!”
Excerpted from The Revelation of Three by Sara M Schaller, Copyright © 2021 by Sara M Schaller. Published by Seraphim.
Eighteen-year-old Jordan Conway has always wanted to help people, but helping seven archangels to achieve their divine duty was never quite what he had in mind…
When Jordan is entrusted by the head nun of his orphanage to deliver a mysterious backpack to a New York City address, he comes unexpectedly face-to-face with Archangel Gabriel. Their acquaintance fast uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that connect Jordan’s once-normal life to an ancient heavenly prophecy. Now, he must help Gabriel to reunite the archangels before evil forces grow too strong.
Soon, Jordan and Gabriel find themselves on a divine quest across the globe, while deep in the pits of Hell, Satan plots his return to earth. To gain control, however, Satan needs the powerful prophetic objects locked safe inside Jordan’s backpack—and the devil will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
With that notion threatening his only family and the safety of his newfound friends, Jordan must do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves and help the archangels succeed. If that means sacrificing all he thought he knew to go to war with the devil himself? Bring it on.
