Acts of the Saints by K. A. Schuster
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Books burned, adulterers stoned, gays attacked, government leaders and institutions controlled by a religious hierarchy, visions of a worldwide holy war--is it happening in the Middle East...or in the United States? It is the theoretical flipside of the Left Behind series: Ultraconservative religious leaders and their devout followers are not swept en masse into heaven but instead form a politically powerful coalition spearheaded by a brilliant, monomaniacal tactician. As this juggernaut gains momentum, cherished rights and freedoms are swept aside, and the United States becomes a theocracy as fierce and unforgiving as any within the Islamic world. In Acts of the Saints, Paragenesis is that coalition and a man known only as the Summoner, never seen in public, is its leader. Two ordinary citizens--Catherine, a divorced woman, and Theodore, her alcohol-dependent former parish priest--set out to find the coalition's secret nerve-center, the Citadel, gathering whatever information they can by traveling the "Devil's Railroad" from one resistance group to another. In St. Louis they meet Martin Sovalle, a bisexual man of startling beauty with whom Catherine falls in love and who disappears following a vicious vigilante attack. Unbeknownst to Catherine and Theo, the Summoner has in fact been luring them to his headquarters for the purpose of playing out an End Time drama he believes God has relayed to him in a series of visions. And Martin Sovalle has become his bait. What happens once the lives of these four people collide at the Citadel is something none of them--except perhaps the unlikely mystic, Theo--could have foreseen...Contains controversial material, graphic language, and moderate violence.
