Synopsis

Adam O’Brien closed his eyes to go to sleep. When he woke four days later his world was gone. He was alone. His parents had disappeared. The gaping wound on his head and the scratches on his arms were the only testimony to a tragic horror. Waking in a room of luxury that seemed familiar he was greeted by Nicolas, a friendly stranger, who provided him a haven to rest and recuperate. It was not long before Adam realized something was very wrong and all that was held true was a lie. An unnatural presence lurked in the shadows, a force as strong as the devil. As Nicolas slowly offers Adam the answers he desperately seeks and reveals an unspeakable crime, Adam comes to understand that he is connected to a family cursed for thousands of years, born to bear a burden even they don’t understand. The Raised begins the epic saga of the Morrelini family. Endowed with spectacular wealth and influence the Morrelinis arrive in post Civil War America and unleash a horror they cannot control. Spanning centuries The Raised is a story of revenge, betrayal and the supernatural. In their world of secrets there are some who are determined to make sure the truth stays dead.
