I read some of the other reviews and I have to say that I have no problem with the "religious" side of the book because I know the authors are both evangelical Christians with a pretrib worldview.
With that said, I was disappointed about the quality of this book. I have been a fan of Craig Parshall's novels since his first book The Resurrection File, which I still think, is by far, one of his best books. I have never been a fan of Tim LaHaye and haven't read one single book of his in the Left Behind series. The reason is I figure if everyone thinks they are so great, most likely I won't like it, and generally I'm right.
Out of the 109 books I have here in my Audible acct I don't think I have ten that are fiction, so to actually purchase a novel is something I don't do often, and in this case, i bought this because of Craig Parshall, not La Haye.
I do like the style of writing and I think the story was good, but it was just missing something. I wasn't crazy about the narrators voice, that could be part of it, but I've heard Craig do other chapters of narration before on his books, and he would be an awful narrator if he had to read the book.
With that said, I will buy the next book they put out, which is due out in June 11 (I believe) and it's called Thunder of Heaven. Maybe it will be better... I hope. I have all of Parshall's books and believe that sometimes quality begins to lack especially after an author has been in the limelight awhile and is known.
And since this book was not remotely close to a run away best seller, we'll see what happens with the next book. I pray it's better.
