Parts two and three of The Book of Mortals
See our review below:
Mortal by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee, narrated by Henry Leyva is part two of the trilogy.
This story follows the first book, Forbidden, 480 years in the future where there is no technology and all base emotions of humanity has been removed except fear. Rom Sebastian discovers the truth about his life. He was a corpse until he took the ancient blood that turned him into a Moral, with a full range of feelings.
In the second book, Mortal, Rom Sebastian becomes the leader of the Mortals of both the Keepers and the Nomads. His duty is to bring a young boy to power as the new sovereign. The boy, Jonathon, as prophesied, already had the blood of the ancients. In nine days Jonathon would rule.
Others were vying for power.
Rom’s only duty was to protect Jonathon from all harm until he took the throne of sovereignty.
Jordin, a young nomad woman, was assigned to protect Jonathon with her life. It got complicated when she ended up falling in love with him during the process of guarding him from harm.
The events that transpired sets up what follows in “The Book of Mortals – Sovereign”, the conclusion of the trilogy.
The conclusion of the trilogy had all groups battling each other for control of the world. Two of the three groups were bent on destroying their enemies so that the surviving group would control the remaining ‘corpse’.
But one of the few remaining sovereigns created a deadly virus that would wipe out everyone except the few remaining sovereigns and corpses.
The battle at the end was a race between which group could kill the other before the deadly virus killed them all.
The only ray of hope was that all could be saved by taking the blood of Jordin.
These books have so many thought provoking ideas, it is difficult to do a short review and include all of the details. We leave that to you, the reader and/or listener.
