Except for the spiritual truths contained herein, such as the existence of a spiritual war in the heavenly realms, which are gleaned from the Biblical message regarding God's person and character and how He relates to His creation in general and to humanity in particular, the Prophet's Son series is a mostly fictional story that takes place within the realm of the Persian Empire, which extended from the eastern border of modern India through all of Egypt, southward through most of Sudan and northward through the entire Anatolian peninsula (modern Turkey). The story is told in a three-volume set: Descent to Darkness, Sojourn in the Desert, and Return to Grace. It is set in the 19th, 20th, and 21st years of the Persian King Artexerxes I and takes place in Jerusalem (Books 1 through 3) and a tiny merchant colony called Usen, situated about halfway between Jerusalem and Susa (Books 2 and 3). Though all three books contain actual historical characters taken from the biblical books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther, all events that take place in Books 1 and 2, and most in Book 3, are fictional. Some of the events that occur in Book 3 are historical as related in the book of Nehemiah. All the characters in Prophet's Son are fictional, except for those listed in Appendix 1 on page 347 below. Therefore any resemblance between the fictional characters in this book and real persons living today is purely coincidental. The crumble-down status of Jerusalem and the oppression of its people by the evil residing there are not fictional, though some of its perpetrators are (e.g. Judas and Ahab).
