Overview

A girl. A monk. An unthinkable sacrifice.
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?

In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.

After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?

Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she's ever loved has died. She can't do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she's truly belonged?

Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace - at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

The Abbey is full of monks with special abilities. They all work together to help one another. Brother Prospero found his way to the Abbey years prior after some tough years. Then there is Leonie. She finds herself under Abbot Gabriel’s wing with her own abilities and problems. Things are going better for her until she meets Prospero. Both want to be friends and so much more, but that is against the rules of the Abbey. After the last book I read being such a dark thriller I kind of expected this one to be that way too. I was completely wrong. It is more of a romance with some light fantasy. I loved the Abbey and the monks. Everyone had some ability from telekinesis to telepathy and they were all there to help each other. As for Prospero and Leonie, I really hoped that they could be friends and so much more. I just wanted things to work out for the two of them. Not necessarily as romantic partners but even just friends. Both clearly needed that. This is a great story and wonderful start to a series. I really enjoyed it and am curious to see where it goes in the next book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
