A mysterious organization. An extraordinary gift. An adventure of a lifetime. The stage is set for an epic series that begins with “The Marvels of the Healer”, the new novel by David R. Mastbergen. In this exciting saga, Mastbergen puts a unique twist on the classic battle between good and evil while exploring what it means to be a hero.

The story begins on a Minnesota farm where a teenage girl, Nikki, lives. Nikki’s life, although quite pleasant, is relatively ordinary yet all that is about to change. Nikki becomes involved in an accident when she is out riding her horse one day. Her new neighbor, David, helps her and the chance encounter irrevocably changes their lives and those of the people around them.

David has extraordinary abilities such as healing and reading minds. His gifts are not the only things that make his life intriguing; David’s past is cloaked in mystery as well. Together with Nikki and a few friends and family, David becomes enmeshed in a quest that will test bonds, make heroes and, ultimately, one that will let him discover who he really is. Alongside this perilous odyssey, an ancient battle between the forces of good and evil also unfolds.

Told in prose that will captivate readers from beginning to end, “The Marvels of the Healer” is a tour de force that is made of the same stuff that legends are made of.
