When the world collapses from a Golden Age into one of chaos and strife, mankind's salvation lies in the hands of eternal Emissaries - guardians chosen to protect the secrets of a sacred, ancient civilization and to guide humanity back to enlightenment even as its darkest hour approaches.
A timeless tale of love reborn through the ages.
Marcus and Theron are two lovers bound by an eternal and unshakable bond. As a series of catastrophic events nearly destroys their world, the two along with a chosen few become Emissaries destined, over the course of 13,000 years and through many reincarnations, to lead humanity into an era of peace and prosperity as foretold by the Elders of their race. But the forces of evil have taken possession of one man, Helghul, who relentlessly pursues Marcus and Theron through time, determined to destroy them and ruin all hope for salvation. The Emissary tracks Marcus's epic adventure across centuries of human civilization to present day, where envoys of darkness gather threatening to bury the life-giving secrets of Atitala forever.
Good and evil come to blows and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.
Veitch and DeFazio's award-winning debut novel deftly blends elements of a fantasy-adventure with historical fiction to create an unforgettable, fateful tale of eternal love, undying devotion, betrayal, suffering, and the hope that binds us all.

Plodding, boring, monotone narrator
Way too much introduction and dense explanation rather than story telling. Monotone poorly spaced narration. I tried to get through all that hoping to get past it but it went on and on until I gave up.
I tried to get used to it, but couldn't handle the voice of the narrator.

This is such a unique story with some familiar overriding themes of good vs evil; love discovered and then lost and perhaps found? ...adventures through the ages... well I don’t want to give too much away, but you will devour this in a weekend. I loved the characters and the historical settings and can’t wait for the next one in the series!
