Illinois Author’s Book Asks, What If Jesus’ 12 Disciples Were Ninjas?
What if the disciples were ninjas fighting to prevent Satan from possessing Jesus’ body and creating a zombie antichrist to rule the world?
That’s the fantastic premise driving The Blood of Destiny, the new novel by Sean Leary. It’s been described by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks as “imaginative” and “exciting” and NY Times best-selling author Matthew Clemens said “this book rocks!”
It’s Good Friday, 33 AD. Jesus Christ has been ritually crucified, his soul sent to hell, to free the lost souls of purgatory. In three days’ time, it is prophesized he will rise and once more walk the earth. But until then, his body is a hollow shell of power.
With a massive army of beasts from the bowels of hell, King Herod, the Roman Emperor Tiberius and Satan plot to demonically possess the body, turning it into a zombie antichrist to rule the world.
Only a mighty cadre of warriors stand against them. The disciples. The Magi. Mary Magdalene. Joseph of Arimathea. The most powerful ninja wizards upon the earth, summoned forth by the secret society the Silent Hand to protect the Christ during his life, and, even more crucially, during his death.
The forces of evil will stop at nothing to turn the body of Christ into an abomination, banish his soul to hell and control the earth. The forces of good have but three days to stop them.
But can they? Will they survive against the vile and depraved legions of hades? Find out, in The Blood of Destiny…
