The Begotten and The Betrayed-Lisa Tawn Bergren

Let me just start by saying that I was soooo excited to be able to review Lisa's books! I have read other books of hers and really enjoy them and these two were no different. These books are the first two in the Gifted series, which is wonderful, because I just love books that are a series. These are different from her romances, as they are more speculative Christian fiction, but I loved them nonetheless. Here are the synopsis' of the two of them.

About The Begotten:
What if the Medieval Church had the lost letters of Paul, holding them away from the populace because they expounded on spiritual gifts? What would happen if God brought together people with extraordinary spiritual gifts during the fourteenth century? How would they battle the twin dangers of evil and the Inquisition? How would their decisions, good and bad, help shape the future Body of Christ? And what if the people that did the greatest good in the battle had more subtle spiritual gifts than those they supported and followed?

The year is 1339 and God calls to his beloved until they rise from their slumber. Yet at the same time, Evil also walks the Earth, hunting God's chosen ones. Can the Gifted rally together and avoid both the known dangers that hunt them as well as those in the shadows? The future of the Christian Church, as well as humandkind, rests on their ability to rely on what God had laid in their hearts, minds and souls. Will they discover it in time?

Daria D'Angelo is an Italian aristocrat with a dangerous gift. She needs to help a secret group of people stay alive when the Church and the enemy all want them dead, serve her God with her gifts of healing, and although she longs for romantic love, keep her eyes on the Eternal. If she does not succeed, she, her friends, and their eternal purpose to radically transform the Christian Church—and the future of humanity—will all die.

About The Betrayed:
The breathtaking quest of the spiritually empowered Gifted ones, prophesized in a long-lost illuminated letter from the apostle Paul, continues as the healer, the priest, and the knight gather together to fight a battle in a profound new war. For the enemies of the Gifted are gathering, led by an evil lord who will do anything to destroy their unwavering faith.

Janis,
Thanks so much for spreading the word about my books! It means a great deal to me as I labor on tortuous rewrites of book 3, THE BLESSED! I suddenly feel like Daria in THE BETRAYED...Nah, it's not that bad!

Have a terrific day,
Lisa T. Bergren
