Keeper of the Promise
by Harvey Stanbrough
The prophets promised a king who would restore justice on Earth. But it's a tall order, and prophecy can be interpreted in many ways.
When the 13th daughter of a 13th daughter meets the 13th son of a 13th son, she is ecstatic. Their union will break the curse that has plagued both their families for generations.
Is the child a cursed remnant of a prophecy gone awry? Or is he the fulfillment?
