Begotten JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Begotten by Lisa T. Bergren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Begotten Title: Begotten 
Series: The Gifted Trilogy #1 
Author: Lisa T. Bergren 
Publisher: BCG Press 
Release Date: April 26, 2021 
Genre: Christian, Supernatural Suspense 

Begotten is an edited, new edition of a novel previously released in 2006, The Begotten. 

At the height of the Inquisition, a secret half a millennium old is about to be exposed---a lost letter believed to have been written by Saint Paul but never part of the Christian canon. The letter speaks of men and women---the Gifted---with profound spiritual gifts that will strike fear in the heart of a Church dedicated to maintaining power. Now the letter has surfaced and the Gifted are gathering. But so are their enemies... 


Slowly, the forest settled back into shape, gently swaying in a high breeze, but no longer swirling. The falcon landed on a branch above him. And the woman…he’d never seen such a beautiful creature. Lord, who is this woman? If I am in danger, warn me now.  The edges of her cloak parted as she leaned over him again, head bent in prayer. He noticed her long, graceful neck. Delicate collarbones. And pleasing cleavage peeking above a lady’s bodice made of the finest brocade and beads.

“M’lady,” he whispered, grabbing her hand, forcing her to still.

She looked at him then, arched brows furrowed over earth-brown eyes in which a man could find both tales and wisdom. A stern angel of God. “Cease looking at me like that,” she said, rising.

“Yes, m’lady,” he said, speaking normally now. He could breathe again, take a deep breath! He laughed at the sensation, filled his lungs and then laughed again. What sort of miracle had just occurred?

He was torn between the glory of an afterlife only barely touched—the promise, the glimpse that made his heart pound with hope, the desire to exist in that perfection—and his relief at being alive. But in the midst of it was this angel, this servant. God’s own hand, a wondrous creature. A healer. And beside her a priest and slave. What odd trio was this?
