When a baby is thrust into the arms of Dr. Jonathan Keats he has no idea his life is about to change forever. All he knows is her name is Serenity and she must be protected at all costs. His quest for more answers leads him to Europe where he discovers that she is no ordinary child and that the very fate of the world may one day rest in her hands.
Having been moved around from school to school since she was young Serenity only has her grandmother to rely on. When strange things start to happen around her and her grandmother disappears, Serenity doesn’t know who to trust. She eventually puts her faith into the hands of Tal, a mysterious young man she feels deeply connected to, but is he good or is he something else?
“The Fruit of the Fallen” by JC Burnham is a story full of prophecy, fallen angels, demons, hell hounds, and a secret religious society, that is told mostly through the eyes of a young girl who is just starting to realize her true purpose in life. It begins with a murder and the action doesn’t stop until the very end when the reader is left wondering if there is more to come. It is a well-written book that speaks of religion and theology but doesn’t preach at the reader. Instead, the story focuses on characters that just happen to be in a struggle between good and evil and look to theology for some of the answers.
A truly exciting and interesting book, I would recommend “The Fruit of the Fallen” to anyone with an open mind who enjoys a well told, action packed story. JC Burnham is an excellent story teller who I hope continues to tell the story of these characters in a future book.
