Of Mercy & Of Death
by David Dupuis

In 1167, a German nun has a troubling vision, prophesizing the end times. In 1917, Mary appears to three children in Fatima, Portugal, revealing mysterious secrets. In 1936, a young man is inexplicably hurled to his death off the side of a mountain in Italy, and the newborn he unknowingly leaves behind is spirited away to America by his terrified mother. But why?

Tackling events throughout the early 20th century, The Seven Keys of Hildegard: Of Mercy & Of Death will challenge the very truth of what the church and the world knows. Through two world wars, and from the Vatican in Rome, Italy, to New York City and small town Canada, two knowing popes, an unsuspecting archbishop and a monsignor become entangled in Hildegard’s ancient web of prophecies. And one thing is certain—Armageddon is nigh.

“I’m not even religious, yet this story grabs you from the first page and brings you on an amazing journey of good vs evil, prophecy, secret societies, the Catholic church, popes, cardinals and history. Anxious to continue this journey, wondering how it will all end.”

“An amazing read. The story, writing style and historical-fiction genre is entirely captivating. Can’t wait to continue this journey through the five books.”
