When the Divine Are Dead
“You are a survivor,” Bradley’s mother said to him the day his brother was shot. Bradley Chambers has gone through hell. Death has been chasing him since he was five—first with his diagnosis of type I diabetes, followed by the time he was kidnapped by a man who wanted to feed him to a lion. Then there was a car crash that killed his childhood best friend, followed by the introduction of a new friend who would later try to kill Bradley’s five-year-old brother. There was no escaping his curse. He was doomed to experience death and destruction over and over again.
When Bradley’s family moves to Indianapolis, he is less than hopeful that the move will do anything to remove the curse. Even with diviners like Serena Lindt and Frank Lantern to keep him on the straight and narrow, Bradley doesn’t see an out. Maybe he’s right. After all, Serena’s been digging for secrets—secrets that could expose them. Will Bradley be able to help save the diviners in time? Or will his presence only make things worse?
In this young adult fantasy novel, fourteen-year-old Bradley learns the history of his people. When he realizes their tumultuous past could be far from over, he must bring forth both his confidence and his courage to fend off their enemies.
