The story line had great potential. However, I feel it was written for born again Christians. If I wanted to sit through over 10 hours of preaching, I'd have bought something else!.
I'm glad I chose the unabridged audio version over print. The reader did voices so well, I forgot the characters were fictional. The story seemed real
Dr. Birjandi's final stand in the facility. I wondered if he would truly stand for Christ. I knew in my heart he would, but it was amazing to see it happen. He was afraid but did what he had to do. I sometimes time wonder if I could be as courageous. This scene reminded me to be in prayer and ready at all times to speak the truth even if might mean my execution.
Nouri's kidnapping from the hospital had me off the edge of my chair. It didn't seem like they could pull that off, but the quickness and unity of the team made it happen. I loved the courage, teamwork, and daring of all the players.
Twelfth Imam Goes Down -- he was the essence of evil. Glad to see him go.
Lots of page-turning tension. I now have no more fingernails, but it was worth it. My favorite book of 2013 so far.
Rosenberg wove history, scripture and fictional characters together in such a way that you could actually believe it was from current events.
Christopher Lane does great accents which made this story come alive. If you grew up outside the US you'll know what I mean.
I've enjoyed the 12th Iman trilogy. This is the first audible version I've purchased in the series. Christopher Lane's narration is solid until he attempts to do the different accents. I'm never quite sure where is world I'll end up once a new character enters...Africa, Australia, Little Italy in the Bronx, however never Iran or Israel. I suppose I appreciate the attempt, but it's distracting, sometimes comical, often annoying. I suggest if narrators don't have a good handle on accents, just skip it. The rest of his narration was good. Overall a great series.

Ugg I knew what I was in for which this book since I had read the first two but I have this unbearable urge to find out how stories end and since the one before left so much open when I saw this on sale I had to grab it even though I probably wasn’t going to like it. If you’ve read the first two then this one follows the same pattern. The first 25% is great well written and full of action then he goes on and talked about religion for the next 65% of the book with the last 10% being a mix of the two. Thankfully this book brings the story to an end so I can purge ever reading these again from my thoughts. Aside from the religious aspect the ending seems a bit thrown together. It brought the story to an end quickly but I was left feeling a bit cheated with how it ended. There are much better action stories out there.
Mr. Lane's narration is the lone bright spot in this book.
Great thriller in a plausible biblical context that held my interest beginning to end. This is my first Rosenberg series and I can't wait for the next one.
This was a great series. It was among my favorites. It is a must listen. The religious aspect to the story was very interesting.
