It’s time for new members to take the place of old, but the new members must first make the same long and perilous journey as the Ascenders before them did. There will be help along the way as they each make the perilous expedition to finally discover who they are, why they have powers, and what their purpose is.While Sage and his wife Marlowe await the arrival of the Fledglings at the Landing, they realize that organizing this new division will be a much tougher task than they anticipated. Sage’s gift of sight into both the past and future kick in, and he has a grim premonition of the young Fledglings, and knows that he and Marlowe must assist them on their individual journeys if they are to survive.Through a series of visions, Sage learns that one of their close friends is really the enemy- however, because he is not shown who specifically, he and Marlowe are not sure who to trust.As the Fledglings grow in skill into full-fledged Ascenders, they learn that the things you can’t see are often more real than the things you can- that love comes even when you try to fight it- and that God really does work in mysterious ways. Friends become enemies and enemies become friends in this supernatural adventure of battle between good and evil, and the promise of spirituality and love.
