Overview

It is the seventh generation from the onset of dependence on genetically altered inorganics and they bear the ramifications of the time following the polar flux. From their inheritance of greed, a turn to desperation. An insidious and compounding crisis reveals itself within the sealed walls of the Geneto-Hazard Centers and its patients. One hope remains to find salvation.

The Executive Commission of Regeneration Sciences & Survival has initiated the Credence Missions, the launch of twelve seeker probes in what some believe is a futile search for an uncharted System bearing compatible organics. All probes are lost, as is hope, until Credence 7 makes a startling reappearance... transmitting panacean data from what are impossible coordinates.

A reluctant and misled search crew is assembled and sent to retrieve the last probe, but fail. Alteration extinction will now be the final chapter of man. With no sign of the probe at its last known coordinates, the crew is thrust into unconsciousness to inexplicably awaken in the pristine and magnified wonders of an Earth-like world, foreign to their experience.

They meet Gudren, a peculiar and mysterious figure who seems intent on offering the crew solace and transformation. This is contradictory to the distortion of reality and imposed events they must endure in this world.

An attempt to negotiate a harvest of organics is refused by one called the Guardian. This provokes an irony of consequence for humankind. The final sequence of events leaves the story with a paradoxical and dumbfounding reality.

    Glad to see a trilogy series happening

    The original novel was fantastic but I'm glad to see a trilogy coming to elaborate on the story. There's too many elements to the story going on to answer everything I wanted answered for myself in one book. I'm looking forward to reading the before and after to the story. Wondering what happened after the story left always stuck with me. Also looking forward to seeing the new cover.

    So excited to get this. Should be very interesting.

    So excited to get this book and am so happy Anna Kavanaugh is out of retirement! I don't know that much about it but I'm learning more from following news about the cord of callows trilogy. Genetic engineering and cloning food is wrong, that's just my opinion. The in charge agencies preventing us from knowing what we're eating is something very serious and I think it's great for the public to get an idea of the bad sides to it in the future long run if anything's ever going to change. I'm excited to see what is different about creed than the original cord of callows and even more excited to read the other two books of the series to get the fuller picture.

    It always should have been a Trilogy Series

    Jumping on this before it sells out again. I love Cord Of Callows but it always should have been a Trilogy Series. It's a lot of story and too epic for one novel. I totally supported Kavanaugh's decision not to do the sequel a few years ago and I still think that'd be a bad idea. A sequel can only be one thing and that's where does the guardian and the rest of mankind go. If you're gonna have that you have to have the beginning so with the prequel coming before the final sequel I'm happy. I appreciate this author for recognizing don't do it unless it's gonna be done right. This story's meant for a three book trilogy not two. The Geneto hazard centers and what mankind did to bring them about by playing labratory Gods is something I'm really looking forward to.

    Ordered my copy and am anxiously awaiting delivery

    I'm ecstatic CofC is spreading into a 3 part series. I can't remember being this excited since James Redfield was making headlines with his books. I hope the trilogy will let us in a lot more to the guardian and his world but it's a double edged sword because I imagine there's only so much we could or should know about him. I'm hoping too the trilogy will do what I think Ms. Kavanaugh is hoping and that's raise some human awareness with everything governmentally happening to our food supply right under our noses with clones and genetic modifications. I just read an article in the news that said scientists have concluded we actually retain genetic material inside our own human DNA from everything we eat. These books couldn't come at a more relevant time.

    I can't wait to read to read this new book!

    I just pre-ordered Creed and can't wait to get it in my hands! I can't wait to read the changes and to go more into the story with Provenance and Covenant when they come out. I was someone who didn't at first want the original talk of the sequel for the book but now that it's coming out as a trilogy and I understand more of the issues relevant to what we're doing with DNA science today I think it's going to be amazing and make an important statement. Mostly I want to know more of The Guardian's story. I wish it would be shipped by Christmas that's my only let down. Excited to get this!

    I am SO ready for this book!!!

    Anna Kavanaugh's story lines are full of substance and always do the dance of spiritual ideas vs. the ideas of man. There has been too long a gap in between her work, I wish she'd never retired but I'm SO happy she's returned to writing after those three long years! I am SO ready for this book!!! Expanding the original book is brilliant and I can't wait to go where she takes us next in the three new books coming.

    Not surprised to find this on the BestSellers list

    Hands down Kavanaugh's trilogy will be superior and probably her most important work to date. My hat's off to her for writing something that should make us all question the FDA and USDA's black cloak policies in GMO's, cloning and food labeling or lack thereof. Anticipating great things in the 'Cord of Callows' trilogy. Hopefully the trilogy shows someone in power at these agencies a future they don't want to be responsible for.

    I commend Kavanaugh

    Thanks to Anna Kavanaugh for pushing the envelope to bring awareness to the disturbing reality of what's being done to our food without our consent or knowledge.

    Great to see this

    Been waiting for this author's return for a long time. I don't know how she'll top the original Cord but the trilogy intrigues me.

    Excellent

    The Cord of Callows is an excellent story I'm sure to be even better with the making of the Cord of Callows Trilogy version. Whoever made the call for the Trilogy route made the right one IMO because with so many layers and heavy things to think about with the story it can only be better with this expansion. I expect Creed and the other two coming books in the series to be excellent.

    Long time coming!!

    I was so upset when Anna Kavanaugh retired a few years ago but am thrilled she's decided to come back to her career. I know Creed and the other two of the trilogy, Provenance and Covenant will be something special. Happily placing my pre-order for Creed!!

    A wonderful surprise

    The original inspired me to think differently about so many things. The trilogy is a wonderful surprise.

    Five Star Story

    Anna Kavanaugh writes with a superb poetic style and a gripping shock factor in her novels. The Cord of Callows was excellent and the story deserves more than the five star maximum allowed here. I cannot wait to read Creed as well as the others in the trilogy. I support her efforts in protesting the genetic alteration of food but I do not want to see the story take a turn more to the scientific and reality issues. I really hope the spiritual elements to the story are what will still take center stage as they are what I always viewed were what the story is about.

    The original Callows really helped me with some things so very excited to see what happens in Creed

    When a story changes how you look at certain things for the better, or when your life actually gets better because of what you read, you know its really special. As much as the original helped me it will be amazing to have 3 books instead of the 1.

    Waiting Three Years To Have Kavanaugh Back. January Can't Get Here Fast Enough

    January 15th can't show up on my calendar fast enough. I've been waiting three years to see Anna Kavanaugh back in action. I couldn't accept she'd retired at the point she did. The trilogy is the cherry on the sundae of her come back. Creed should be a bombshell worth the wait.

    Looks great to me

    With all the levels in Callows I felt its 3 books in 1 so this trilogy development has a lot of intrigue to it for me. I'm very interested to see where Kavanaugh plans on going storywise and crux with the genetic issues involved and the spiritual ramifications. Looks great to me!

    Dying to read Creed, Covenant and Provenance

    Thank you Anna Kavanaugh for coming out of your retirement. I'm dying to read your new books. The series will bring a completion I think to the story of Cord Of Callows as a whole. I want to know more about the guardian and what happens to him, and us! Can't wait for this.
