ABOUT THE BOOKS

Author: Lisa T. Bergren

An ancient, secret letter has long prophesied that the Gifted would gather. One with the ability to heal, another with the gift of wisdom. Others with the ability to see the future, discern truth, uncover evil intent, or exhibit miraculous powers. Together they are a force, born to change the world. But their gathering has drawn the attention of those who wield power…people determined to either control or destroy them.
“[A] classic battle between good and evil. Disregard Da Vinci Code comparisons, and think Lord of the Rings.” —Publishers Weekly
She walked behind the contessa, feeling the hot, confused stare of Gianni as he looked at her with open compliment in his eyes, then looked away, appearing embarrassed. It was an unsuitable dress, but there was nothing for it. They turned one corner and then another, drawing near to the revelry. Shouts were heard, along with lively music—strings and a delicate drum.
They entered the wide expanse of the third piano, and Daria paused. The walls were ringed with dripping candles, casting warm light across the entire room. The windows were wide open to let in the cool winter evening air to counterbalance the heat of the dancers. Rings of people cascaded by, smiling and glistening with their exertion.
Daria was thankful that they were all preoccupied. It kept their attention from her. She needed to speak as briefly as possible to the doge, meet the patron families, seek out Vincenzo, and then make her escape. The doge was seated on the far side of the room, with a cardinal at one elbow, the much younger dogessa on the other, watching the festivities. Daria noticed many of the women had donned more exotic gowns, some as daring as her own, although only a few of the men had changed to more formal attire.
She searched the room for Abramo, Vincenzo, and Marco—spied only the last two—glanced over her shoulder repeatedly to make certain that Gianni was with her, and slowly made her way through the crowd. There were certainly more than two hundred guests, and it appeared all were dancing, in celebratory, raucous rings. Repeatedly, they were asked to join in. The countess had already joined a circle.
One song ended and another began. As it did, there was no choice but for Daria and Gianni to join in. Here, she could feel the wandering, curious looks of the men, and the resulting blush from her neck upward. In time with the music, their small circle joined another and another, until there was a large ring that drew together and apart. In the next stanza, a group of four parted and faced one another. Gianni moved away, barely keeping step with the dance.
Daria focused her attentions on her own, aware she might fall if she did not pay more attention. They moved left, right, then inward.
And Daria came face to face with her love of long ago, a man whose face would forever remind her of Siena, of home.
