Through the mists of time, the last Templar and a fugitive nun hunt an ancient, immortal evil.
Tormond MacDonald, the last of the Templar Knights, was commissioned as Carnifex Dei, the Executioner of God, at Acre in the 13th century. His sacred mission--to hunt down and slay a trio of immortal witches who leave death and corruption in their wake. He has forsaken all--family, love, even his brother Templars--to fulfill his sacred vow and pursue the enemy through the centuries.
Maebh O Broin, a 15th century nun, fleeing a different, undying evil, encounters the fearsome Executioner. They are thrown together by fate--or perhaps by Providence--and together, they travel the ages. Every time they appear, they find a wrong to right, an evil to combat. But every time, the witches elude them.
They run afoul of a demon, dealing a crippling blow to her malevolent designs. The demon plans her fiendish revenge upon Tormond and Maebh, and though it takes centuries . . . she will have them.

About the Author
C. David Belt was born in the wilds of Evanston, Wyoming. As a child, he lived and traveled extensively around the Far East. In Thailand, he once fed so many bananas to a monkey, the poor creature swore off bananas for life. He served as a missionary in South Korea and southern California (Korean-speaking), and yes, he loves kimchi. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Aerospace Studies, but he managed to bypass all English and writing classes. He served as a B-52 pilot in the US Air Force and as an Air Weapons Controller in the Washington Air National Guard and was deployed to locations so secret, his family still does not know where he risked life and limb (other than in an 192' wingspan aircraft flying 200' off the ground in mountainous terrain). When he is not writing, he has been known to sing in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, and works as a software engineer. He collects swords, spears, and axes (oh, my!), and other medieval weapons and armor. He and his lovely wife have six children (and a growing number of grandchildren) and live in Utah with a cat that (as the family scape-cat) patiently and unashamedly takes the blame for everything in the household.
C. David Belt is the author of The Children of Lilith trilogy, The Sweet Sister, Time’s Plague, The Arawn Prophecy, The Whole Armor of God, The Witch of White Lady Hollow, The Witch and the Devourer of Souls, and The Executioner of God. For more information, please visit www.unwillingchild.com.
