ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Fate of the Redeemed
Series: Journey of Fate #2
Author: Chad Pettit
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: October 1, 2019
Genre: Suspense Fantasy
An angel with amnesia. A demon with a vendetta. The man caught in their crossfire.
Lester Sharp has been given a second chance to live a life of compassion, but his decision to follow God will be tested when his estranged father calls to tell him his brother has been killed in combat. A demon unleashes a series of attacks on him, and someone he thought was lost to his past emerges.
Lester is guarded by the angel, Draven, but when Morane catches the watcher off his guard, Draven loses his memory and finds himself being held prisoner in a remote Somali village. His only ally is Ibrahim, a man who finds out his son has been murdered by extremists when his granddaughter appears out of nowhere and somehow possesses supernatural powers.
As Morane’s fury is unleashed, time is running out for Lester, and Draven’s fate is in the hands of a man whose faith is being pushed to the limit.
While Lester fights for his life—and for his soul—will he make the right choices, or will he decide—once and for all—that he doesn’t need God? And why is one man so important in the midst of spiritual warfare?
Nasteexo was in front of him then. She blinked several times, and moisture rimmed her blue eyes. A tear squeezed its way out and streaked down her cheek. She reached out as the memory of Yusef standing in front of him came back in full force. The memory of what he had told the man who had killed his son. Nasteexo embraced him.
He sobbed on her shoulder, looking at Yara all the while and feeling very much like a coward. “I waited until nightfall and then brought her to you.”
“She is safe.” He felt her patting his back. He squeezed her waist. “You are safe here. Both of you.”
Ibrahim pushed her to arm’s length and looked at her. “No. We are not.”
“You cannot go back, Ibrahim.”
He turned and walked back to where he had been standing a few minutes ago. “There will be suspicions if I do not return to Khufia.”
“There will be more death if you do.”
“No, Yeshua has sent us help.”
He heard her snort. “Fool.”
He spun to face her. “I am no fool, and I know what I saw. You say this man is a demon, but the only demons in Khufia are Yusef and his men.”
“So, you will go to this mystery man? He is still alive?”
He nodded. “I do not know why, but I do not think he can be killed with their guns. He is being held.”
“And you think you are going to sneak past Yusef’s men? Al-Shabaab? They are the terror of the entire coastline, Ibrahim.”
Ibrahim balled his fists at his waist and clenched his teeth. “I will not continue to hide, Nasteexo. I dishonored my God and my son today. I lied to that monster and betrayed my Savior.”
“And you think that will go away because you commit suicide by trying to free this man?”
He waved his hands in the air and started walking to the door. “This is a waste of time.”
He reached the door and grabbed the handle. He paused before turning the latch and looked at Nasteexo over his shoulder. “You know me, sister. I have never been a man of resolve. I have hid, been a coward. If not for that cowardice, I would have been among those who died with Guleed today.”
“Then I thank God for your cowardice.” She wiped her face and then folded her arms.
“Stay here, and be a coward. A living, breathing coward who can be here for his granddaughter who just lost both parents.”
He shook his head. “If we deny Him before men, Yeshua will deny us before the Father.”
She rolled her eyes. “How convenient to quote your precious Book now. What about protecting His people? Isn’t that in your sacred Scriptures?”
“No,” he said. “He told us we would suffer for His name’s sake.”
“Finally, it’s true. I don’t want to serve your God if this is what living for Him means.”
“I do not think I can even say I know what it means to live for Him.” Ibrahim turned his head and opened the door. Behind him, he heard Nasteexo.
“Well, you will soon know what it means to die for Him.”
He took a deep breath and nodded. “So be it.” Trembling, he stepped into the night.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Chad Pettit grew up lost in the world of fantasy fiction but alienated from a knowledge of God. With no real direction in his life, he shipped out for basic training twelve days after high school. He continued down a path of sin and destruction through two combat tours to Iraq, but then God pulled back the blinders, and he met his Lord and Savior. One passion that never left him was his love for fiction, and in 2013 he went back to school and earned his degree in English. This helped him develop his craft, spending long hours pounding away at the keys until his battles with guilt, fear, and shame came alive on the page.
