    Even four years after the sudden death of his wife, best selling novelist Mike Noonan can't stop grieving, nor can he return to his writing. He moves into his isolated house by the lake, which becomes the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here - and what do they want of Mike Noonan?

    Amazon Customer says: "My Favorite King Novel"
    "Boring, verbose, ponderous & not scary."
    Overall

    What a ponderous behemoth of a work. Page by page I went through this epic of a novel, with excess character descriptions and mountains of useless dialogue, only to find out that the end was totally anti-climatic. What a waste of time, I could have read a harlequin novel and got more entertainment effect out of it. This unfortunately is what his novels have succumbed to lately. I swore that I wouldn?t read his works after I suffered through ? Needful Things? but I took a chance and lost. If you are looking for a good scary story, skip this book.

    The scattered Tribulation Force is drawn inexorably toward the Middle East, as are all the armies of the world, when history hones in on the battle of the ages. During the last year of the Great Tribulation, safe houses are no longer safe, friends and loved ones must commemorate two lives in one memorial service, and the cast of characters dramatically changes.

    "Harlequin version of Bible prophesies."
    Overall

    Well, this book was written to the level of the lowest denominator of reader. It had potential, starting with a great subject. Of course, this is a fictionalization of what the end times prophesied in the NT Bible will be like. Moreover, it?s a portrayal held by a portion of Christians, not at all an ecumenical in scope. Of these prophesies, this is just one amongst a plethora of interpretations. This is one mans fictionalized, fleshed out story for the common masses. It is not great or even good literature. It?s just entertaining enough for readers who have the attention span of typical modern Americans. For any serious reader, it will be a bore. If you are interested in the pulp fiction version of Bible prophesies, this is the book series for you.

    The electrifying Left Behind™ series has soared to the top of best seller lists! Listen to what life might be like for those left behind when millions vanish, fulfilling the prophecy in the Book of Revelation. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror-stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. As devastating as the disappearances have been, the darkest days may lie ahead.
