When Professor Auru-Soto, a Catholic historian, stumbles upon a coded message left behind by Pope John Paul II, she soon realizes it provides the clues to unraveling the truth about a prophecy long-guarded by mysterious forces within the Vatican.
In 1917, the Virgin Mary appeared to three little shepherds and gave them a three-part secret; two were released in 1941, while the third one, per Mary’s wishes, was to be shared in 1960, for according to her words “by that time, it will be clearly understood”. Shockingly, when the time came, Pope John XXIII decided instead to keep it locked away. Hinting to its content being too tough to bear, successive popes followed suit and kept it concealed for decades. Finally in 2000, due to growing pressure, the secret was finally made public, only to reveal the prophecy of the failed attempt on John Paul II’s life. Naturally, its authenticity was called into question, and a wide range of conspiracy theories followed.
Was there more to the prophecy? Why did the popes struggled with it so?
Faced with these burning questions, little time and a string of challenging clues, the Catholic historian turns to her estranged sister, a stanch skeptic, for her gifted analytical mind. Together they’ll decipher their way through a fascinating historical labyrinth that ultimately leads to a surprising revelation.
A horrid betrayal lurks in the halls of a secret laboratory where science has advanced beyond the possible: synthetic humans are created and raised, minds uploaded and stored, and immortality is but a mind-transfer away.
With a rapidly ailing body, Dr. Gerald Kinsey, a revered pioneer, has long been scheming to ensure his survival, albeit at the expense of snatching the younger and perfected body that belongs to his masterpiece, his unsuspecting synthetic protégé.
But Kinsey can’t do it alone, so when he resorts to coercing his assistant Dr. Zivanka K. Viena, she, in a courageous move, kidnaps Kinsey’s mind, not without inevitably incriminating herself in an apparent crime. Her situation is dire. Viena too is a highly perfected synthetic human, who finds herself on the run in a world that knows nothing of her type and would sooner lynch her than help her if they did.
At the end, all may have been for naught. Viena is unaware of the true extent of Kinsey’s sick plan, how deep hatred against her own runs… or that the most unlikely eyes are watching her every move.
