In the battle between good and evil, it’s hard to tell who’s on which side.
With the world watching, the opposing forces of super-powered beings clash
in battles that reveal whether the Morningstar fights for the cause of good...or evil.
Volume 1: ADVENT
In the storm of battle, it’s hard to tell friend from foe. A turbulent stranger with hurricane-like powers takes hostages on an oil rig, calling himself the Tempest and claiming to fight for the environment. Showing up to battle him are members of the Hand of the Morningstar, a group of barely known, super-powered beings serving a mysterious leader. Who is really out to save the world? When this war is over and a victor emerges, the citizens of earth had better hope they’ve chosen their heroes wisely.
Volume 2: RESURRECTION
Have well-meaning missionaries unleashed a storm? Thinking that Titan and his comrades destroyed the Tempest, and grateful to them for battling thugs sent to wipe out an African village, the world hails them as heroes. But as the world waits for the mysterious Morningstar to be revealed, a wounded man washes ashore upon the coast of Argentina. With a missionary and his daughter caring for him, Michael Tempe begins to regain his strength. Will they discover who he really is? And can the love of God and of a godly young woman calm the storm that rages within him? Or will the Tempest once again be loosed upon the world?
Volume 3: CONFESSION
Acceptance... or punishment? With the world watching, the opposing forces of superpowered beings clash in battles that reveal whether those who serve the elusive Morningstar, said to be a wise and powerful heavenly creature, fight for the cause of good or evil. The Tempest used his great powers to calm the storm’s rage. Now as he plans to turn himself in to the authorities, Michael doesn’t know whether his confession will place him among the heroes or land him in prison. But even if the world forgives him for his violent past, a re-born Tempest may not fit into the plans of Artemis and the Morningstar.
Volume 4: SANCTIFICATION
Now that Michael Tempe has matured in his faith and is honing his skills, he considers an invitation to join the Hand of the Morningstar. And it doesn’t take long to discover it’s not a match made in heaven.
