ABOUT THE BOOK
War and disease have destroyed the modern world. Centuries later, feudal societies have arisen across Europe. No one can remember the ancient religion of Christianity—until an army captain and a farmer’s daughter discover the Sacred Writing of the one true God.
As Teo and Ana encounter the forgotten words of the holy book, they realize its message is just what their kingdom needs. Though exiled from their homeland, they join their hearts in a quest to return. But now an ancient pact has united the enemies of the Christian faith into a dark alliance that threatens to consume the known world. Racing to stay one step ahead of their enemies, Teo and Ana must battle heinous villains, stormy seas, and the powers of the underworld itself. As armies begin to mass for a final battle, the odds favor the forces of evil. Can Teo and Ana bring divine truth to Chiveis—or will the Word of God fade from the earth forever?

Litfon concludes the Chiveis Trilogy with The Kingdom. I haven't read a fantasy novel in quite a while and after reading this one I remember why... it's just not my cup of tea. This book wasn't bad, I think fantasy fans will enjoy it.
It's the story of good versus evil and two young people's battle to defeat evil by getting the news about the forgotten God out to the world. Europe has reverted to a midevil existence after years of wars and mankind is almost nonexistent. A great battle ensues. There is intrigue, romance and if you've read the first two novels, questions answered.
