This volume contains a complete English translation of the famous Ethiopian work, The Kebra Nagast, i.e. the Glory of the Kings [of Ethiopia]. This work has been held in peculiar honour in Abyssinia for several centuries, and throughout that country it has been, and still is, venerated by the people as containing the final proof of their descent from the Hebrew Patriarchs, and of the kinship of their kings of the Solomonic line with Christ, the Son of God.

"No more hiding" has become Dove Strong’s motto. But then, her worst nightmare comes true. Her family disappears from their secluded tree home, and they’re not the only Christians in the nation who’ve been snatched. All clues about the numerous disappearances point to nonbelievers, and the remaining believers are not happy. While Dove and her cousin Trinity hunt for the missing Christians, Dove stumbles upon a secret plan to force the Reclaim.
The start of The Reclaim is imminent, and 16-year-old Dove Strong can’t do a thing to stop it...or can she? Dove fights to reach civilization while enduring Satan’s elements and a mysterious Amhebran coder who haunts her steps. Dove is strong. But is her faith strong enough to survive a friend's betrayal or the ultimate decision, whether or not to sacrifice a family member to stop the attack?

So when this spiritually-gifted, antisocial teenager is chosen to join other believers in a trek across Satan's territory, rattlesnakes and evil-intentioned Heathen aren't her biggest challenges. But failure isn't an option.
