For one man, the future is now.
The Prester family has been waiting for centuries for the prophecy to manifest. Josephus swore to his grandfather the day the old man died that he would be the one to deliver the Marked Child. For thirty years, he watched his Ethiopia be crushed by famine, disease, and religious conflict. The time for action has come. Breaking one vow to deliver on a greater one, he assembles the brothers who have the unwavering faith and knowledge of what will be necessary to seek out the reincarnated Guardians, those who once shepherded this land to supremacy. It is time for them to remember their heritage and to reclaim their future. The Guardians are the way.
It is a race against time to find the children who hold the key to saving the future before the darkness overtakes them all. Will they succeed? Or will the covenant, the first promise, made to an ancient people remain unfulfilled?
