eBook Description: The very destiny of mankind is riding on the fate of one orphaned child. It is the latter day of great kings and world empires. The early 17th century world is flame with strife amid the crumbling edifices of a dying renaissance. It is a time of new ideas--of dangerous notions that are sweeping the old world away forever. From this background of castles and the dominion of powerful men, two of the planet's weakest members unknowingly step out on to an eternal field of war commanded by forces that armies of mere humans can never hope to defeat--or even see. He was labeled a bastard and a cur--a child tossed aside as damaged goods, destined to fend for himself on the mean streets of France. But he is taken in by Enseignant Demian Constantine and they wander together far away from the majestic shadow of the Cathedral Le Mont St. Michel. They travel through King Arthur's mystical forest of Brocliande only to be met by formidable, supernatural forces who have vowed to destroy them. What young Alyete and his teacher cannot possibly know is that Heaven itself is ready to wage war to protect this extraordinary child. In this surprising novel, Dennis Chamberland opens a bridge between two worlds--one seen and the other forbidden to human eyes. From the majesty of Le Mont St. Michel to the dark forests deep in the heart of France, Alyete and his teacher unwittingly step off into a void from which they can never return. Surrounded by the mystic and ancient woodlands, they open the doors to an eternal abyss sealed from before the beginning of time. In this startling, compelling and sometimes unsettling story, Dennis Chamberland paints images of emotions and ideas that transcend mere human generations, nations and armies. Herein the ultimate spiritual powers are set on a delicate, precarious balance between a boy and his teacher--attended by unseen majesties who would, in the end, decide everyone's fate for all eternity.
