From the Mouth of Elijah (Paperback)
about this item
In Song of the Ovulum, a fiery battle between dragons and the military helped Matt and Lauren set their father, Billy Bannister, free from a demonic captor. The demon, however, escaped and kidnapped their mother, Bonnie. During the battle, a portal vortex flung Matt into oblivion, and no one knew where he went.
Now, in From the Mouth of Elijah, Lauren and Billy set out on a journey to find Bonnie, hoping Lauren's gifted hearing can track down Bonnie's never-ending song. At the same time, Walter and Ashley, with help from Joran and Selah, two Listeners from ancient times, try to open the portal that swallowed Matt. All the while they are searching for clues to cure a mysterious disease that threatens to kill the original anthrozils, including Jared, who was once the great Clefspeare.
Both journeys are fraught with peril as Lauren and Matt are thrust into Second Eden where a volcano, Mount Elijah, has erupted and devastated the land, killing many of the residents. Matt uses his gifts of healing to save some of the victims of the disaster, but he also learns that his compassion is more limited that he thought. There is one person in his life for whom he still holds bitterness, and they are thrown together at the end of the story as a setup for the next.
Lauren learns that the greatest of sacrifices is necessary to bring about the disease's cure. Since she is the only one who believes the cure to be possible, she begins the path to sacrifice herself in order to save victims of the disease. Along the way, she is confronted by her lack of true faith, and an unusual companion leads her to find the fire to purge her soul before she has to face the sacrifice.
