I totally loved the first book in this series, The Begotten. It was fabulous. The second book in this series, The Betrayed was just as good. I recommend reading the series in order. There was a point in the middle of The Betrayed when I put this book down due to other commitments, but when I picked it up again I was pulled right back into that world.

The brutality the "gifted" experienced was as powerful as the miraculous events. I couldn't believe how many times they were captured after trying t

I enjoyed this book so much more so than the first. I am looking forward to the third in this trilogy.
Really enjoyable series...very Da Vinci Code-esque with strong Christian faith foundation.
Book #2 in the Gifted series and not as good as the first. It felt like it went on too long. The questions with the author at the end ask about comparisons with the DaVinci Code--no way! This is not even close. You do get a sense of 14th century Italy, I guess, but I have to say that the language is mostly modern with the irritating exception of "mayhap" which was used often...and really bugged me if you can't tell!
I am halfway through book 3 of this trilogy. They are terrific. I rarely rate a five, but these two came very close. They take place in the 12th century but are very apropos for today, as we fight the insidious evil that has crept into our world and threatens to take us down. it makes us realize we must trust always in jesus, our Lord and Savior. I will add to this when I finish Book 3, the finale.

This was a good one! A tale of good vs. evil plus action, adventure, romance. The second in a trilogy, you'll need to read the first one to understand what's going on in this one, but I think the author really hit her stride in this second book. This one really had me turning the pages and rooting for the good guys (and gals).
This second installment in Bergren's Gifted series was just as good as the first. It has very heavy Christian themes which I think Bergren successfully weaves into a gripping story with characters who are vibrant. I couldn't put it down.
I enjoyed the book but was distracted and had a hard time really getting into the book. It couldn't pull me completely into the story.
Epic - historical - supernatural thriller - year 1341; the "Gifted" are followers of Jesus Christ - the book pulls at you -
