Handsome, brilliant, and surrounded by good friends, twenty-three-year-old medical student Miles Fox has a secret—and it’s not that he’s gay. Though he harbors a crush on his straight best friend, Luke. Miles, like his grandmother, Anna, possesses the healing gift, an ability she’s made him swear never to use or divulge, lest horrible things befall those he loves. It happened to her when Nazis butchered her family.
But it all goes to hell when Miles heals a terminally ill man on a New Orleans cancer ward and wakes locked in the psych unit. Worse, news of the healing miracle spreads. For millennia, its carriers have been hunted by those who would steal it. Dr. Gerald Stangl and his teenage son, Calvin, know what Miles possesses. They, like their predecessors, will stop at nothing to take it, including kidnapping, torture, and murder. As the Stangls’ noose tightens, Miles and Luke are trapped in a death match with stakes higher than they could ever imagine.
Do you believe in good and evil? What about gypsy magic? Miles comes from a very long line of powerful people who can heal through touch. But he has been taught since a very young age that he should never use it. But when you are in your last year of medical school, and your patient is dyeing, leaving behind a loving family sometimes late at night good sense and the right thing to do just don’t agree.
Luke has been Miles best friend for yrs, when he finds out that his best friend I’s being held in a psychic holding cell to be transferred to a mental hospital because he is dangerous he knows something is wrong. When he gives him a way out, he is expelled from his medical program and sent home.
Evil comes in the form of a family tree that can be traced back to the time of the Knights, who have been following Miles since he was a child. They will go to any length to get Miles back in their control, including settings him up for murder, kidnapping, and unethical medical testing on unwilling patients.
Can Miles and Luke together work against the evil in their mist and come out on the other side alive and together? Or will this be the time that evil wins? Rather we like it or not good does not always prevail.
Luke is a surprise in this story. When you think of your friends, how many do you have that would stand beside you when faced with almost overwhelming evidence that you killed someone? Give up on their career just because they want to help a friend.
A well written twisted story that is not for an afternoon of light reading.
