Something happens on Jonas’ twenty-fourth birthday: Father Clements gives him a box containing information about his family. The diaries and photos inspire a quest to find out what happened to them. Secrets of prostitution, witchcraft, powerful books and a discovery so unexpected:“You can ask your aunt if you wish to. She lives, if I dare still call it that, in a private hospital run by the church.”“Yes Father. I’ll go there today if you’ll permit it.” I asked, again upright and alert.“No, Jona, not today.” He cautioned me. “First, you must read the diaries and discuss them with me for three months. Then, if you wish to continue, I will call for priests that specialize in these things to counsel you for another three months.”“Priests that specialize in these things?” I was confused. “What kind of priests are you referring to, Father?”“Exorcists.” He said the word then made the sign of the cross.Jona is reunited with his aunt and the demons within her. His teaching Exorcists, a Cardinal and an Army Chaplain, tell him not to believe what is said by the damned. Claims that he is the last of a Roman Emperors bloodline, has abilities not meant for man and is one of the few that Angels watch are becoming harder to dispute. His chosen ministry at the Orphanage where he grew up seems worlds away. Omens are seen, dreams contain messages and demons impatient for Jona to act on their behalf: attack. Discover what the demons want from him and if Jona will finally be ordained.
