Five hundred years have passed since the Earth shifted on its axis - a catastrophic event that wiped out civilization and released magic back to Earth. Now, a dark age shrouds our world once more. Journey into a future rife with witches, conjurers, and mythical creatures that have returned from the nether realm. Follow three intertwined fates: Paine, a young man hunted by Confederation soldiers who are on a crusade to wipe out magic; Brahm, the battle-hardened woman that slaughtered his mother, and in whose body the woman's soul now resides; and John, a friar once imprisoned for heresy, now assigned by a woman Pope to destroy the boy he unwillingly fathered. Take a voyage to the future as the legions of heaven and hell combine to bring the Words of the Prophecy to fruition. A war of the gods is coming. And the ones we expect to deliver us from evil are not who they seem. ----------- The Second Coming is the first book of the epic fantasy series, Words of the Prophecy. ----------- "Beautifully written, dark and eerie vision of an apocalyptic future." "David H. Burton is a dark new talent in the genre. This one will make you leave the lights on for a week!"
