Sale - Forbidden by Ted Dekker & Tosca Lee
This is the description offered by the publisher: Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.
Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love.
But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed.
Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.
Ted and Tosca also have another book out that they are offering for free, The Keeper. The Keeper is a short story prequel to Forbidden. If you are getting the book above, you will want to make sure to get The Keeper and read it first. Remember prices change quickly, so check the prices before you buy. You will be charged the price listed at the Barnes and Noble website.
