THE BEAST, THE PROPHETS AND THE VICTORY
Paperback / Ebook editions
The Beast, the Prophets and the Victory is a Catholic supernatural fantasy based on the intersection of Scripture’s book of Revelation and our times. It is also the sequel to Dean’s first novel The Jeweler’s Polish set in the small Mediterranean island of Malta.
In a gripping narrative full of intrigue and bloodshed, darkness and light, faith and hope spanning three continents, Father Xavier and Father Antony, in the company of Jerome of Tunisia, witness an explosion that kills the provincial general of the Society of Jesus and other priests. Together with Emerald Rohan Grady and Martin of Malta, they are forced to flee to other countries in fear for their lives. But why did this happen? Who, in reality, are Father Stefan Mifsud, Muriel Cannon, Tyrone Bryce, George Deals and Mala Atesta? Has the time of the prophets arrived? Why does the seat of power in the United States of America transfer from Washington, D.C., to a different state? Who succeeds Pope Francis as Vicar of the Catholic Church? Who is the woman with a face resembling that of the Holy Virgin at Fatima? Above all, who is the Antichrist? Will he appear in our times?
Praise for The Beast
"Hits a home run with this wonderful book. It immediately draws you into the action. . . . The story is rooted in a clear understanding of Catholic doctrine, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and knowledge of current events. The ending is explosive and amazing. It is a very fast read and it will keep you up at night, thinking and praying" - 5* review, Amazon.
"Dean tells a story with characters I grew to be concerned for. She draws not only on the familiar verses from Revelation and Daniel, but from the Gospel of Matthew, Genesis, and images from Ezekiel, as well as the riches of Catholic traditions, the writings of saints and scholars. The awesome beauty of the final victory moved me to tears" - 5* review, Amazon.
