"But what are we without dreams?"
Against all odds, Orah and Nathaniel have found the keep and revealed the truth about the darkness, initiating what they hoped would be a new age of enlightenment. But the people were more set in their ways than anticipated, and a faction of vicars whispered in their ears, urging a return to traditional ways.
Desperate to keep their movement alive, Orah and Nathaniel cross the ocean to seek the living descendants of the keepmasters' kin. Those they find on the distant shore are both more and less advanced than expected.
The seekers become caught between the two sides, and face the challenge of bringing them together to make a better world. The prize: a chance to bring home miracles and a more promising future for their people. The cost of failure: unimaginable.
Kirkus Reviews: "In this YA sci-fi sequel, Litwack pushes his characters into new physical, mental, and emotional realms as they encounter an unusual, tech-based society. A grand, revelatory saga that continues to unfold."

About the Author
The urge to write first struck me when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter’s editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But I was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic.
Using two fingers and lots of white-out, I religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into my twenties. Then life intervened. I paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When I found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned.
There Comes a Prophet, published in July 2012, was the first novel in this new stage of life. It will be re-released by Evolved Publishing as The Children of Darkness, the first book in the series The Seekers. My second, Along the Watchtower, came out in June 2013, and my third book, The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky (refer to first paragraph above), released in May 2014.
My wife and I split our time between Cape Cod, Florida, and anywhere else that catches our fancy. I no longer limit myself to five pages a day and am thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.
