Book Two of The Lost Legend Trilogy takes up where Book One left off . . .

Not far into his journey with the Magi, Michael is visited again by the angel of his previous dreams. "You must go to Jerusalem as quickly as you can", the angel tells him. The wicked King Herod has learned of the Magi's duplicity. So fearful is he that this Son of God will one day depose him, that Herod has ordered all of the boy children under the age of two years to be put to death. Michael must find Mary and Joseph and the Child and provide them with safe passage into Egypt where he will remain as their protector until it is safe for them to return to their homeland.

Michael obeys and successfully escorts the Holy Family out of harm's way. In Egypt, an extraordinary colt is born to the mare who has carried Michael since he left the horsemen. The colt is named Zabbai, which, in Hebrew, means A Gift from God. As the years unfold, we come to know Jesus as He might have been in childhood, seeing Him as both human and Divine. A tremendous bond is forged between Michael and the Family he has been called to protect. A remarkable alliance also develops between Jesus and Zabbai.

After ten years in Egypt, the Family learns that Herod is dead and that it is relatively safe for them to return to their homeland. Sadly, for their safety, it will be necessary for Michael to part with this Family he has come to love as his own. With mingled sorrow and longing, he heads off in search of the horsemen, hoping against hope that through his mother's people he will at last be led to a reunion with his father.
