    In the final book of the Restoration Series by best-selling author Terri Blackstock, the end of a global electrical blackout signals the beginning of the Branning family's ultimate test. Murder and affairs of the heart form the backdrop for a family sifting through the lessons they have learned and how well they have truly learned them.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Uplifting and action packed Christian fiction"
    "Not bad"
    Overall

    I didn't like the narrator's voice, and the story was a little predictable. And one plot line is drawn out over all 4 books which just about drove me insane, and no it's not the blackouts. But there is a mystery and the ending. Well I defy you not to cry over the ending.

    Jane Austen's most popular novel, originally published in 1813, some 17 years after it was first written, presents the Bennet family of Longbourn. Against the background of gossipy Mrs. Bennet and the detached Mr. Bennet, the quest is on for husbands for the five daughters. The spotlight falls on Elizabeth, second eldest, who is courted by Darcy, though initially she is more concerned with the fate of her other sisters.

    Overall

    that hasn't already been said. I listen to this book at least once a month. I love Jane Austen and this is my favorite of her works. It is well read and completely engrossing.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"

    Overall

    Even after reading the reviews I had no idea how deeply this book would effect me. At one point I had to stop the book and take a break from it because it in the common vernacular "It stepped on my toes" just a little too much. I will be listening to it again. I will also be purchasing the paperback versions of this and passing it along to several family members.

    In this final installment of Ted Dekker's groundbreaking Circle Trilogy, Thomas Hunter has only days to survive two separate realms of danger, deceit, and destruction. The fate of both worlds hinges on his unique ability to shift realities through his dreams.

    April says: "Fantastic Series"
    "My least favorite of the 3."
    Overall

    I loved it and hated it. The last book in the series was more difficult for me to read. I don't know if it was the fact that it was the last one and I had done them in a marathon, or if it was because it just was the least interesting than the other two. I loved the symbolism, it was beautiful. But I have noticed that Mr. Dekker seems to cram too much into the end of both his books and the end of his series. I just finished reading one of his latest books and noticed the same thing.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Curtis says: "Should be Section One, not Book One"

    I quite honestly loved this book. It is like nothing I have ever read. It keeps you engrossed from the beginning to the end. Fantasy, science fiction, and Christian all at the same time.

    Detective Stan Shepherd lies comatose in the hospital, a victim of arsenic poisoning. The New Pointe Police have Celia Shepherd, his wife, as the prime suspect. This isn't the first time she's heard such charges. Her first husband died under similar circumstances. The case against her had been dropped on a technicality. This time, though, the investigation turns up a solid motive, with an old flame of Celia's waiting conveniently in the wings.

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. I love mysteries and I enjoy them even more when they are couched in the Christian world. But this book was too predictable. I figured out the mystery within the first couple of chapters, then it just seemed to drag on and on.

    A dark shadow of fear has fallen over Newpointe, Louisiana. First one, then another, of the town firemen's wives has been murdered, and a third has barely escaped an attempt on her life. Incredible as it seems, a serial killer is stalking this sleepy little southern community. And Mark Branning's wife may be next on the list.

    Overall

    This book keeps your attention. The mystery is pretty easy to figure out but the characters are fleshed out very well and the relationship between the two main characters is touching. Yes it is a Christian book, that's why it is listed under the Christian fiction section. The narrator has a good feel for a Louisana accent. The recording does sound like it wasn't recorded in a proper studio, kinda like it is in a well. It's not the most profound book I have ever listened to but it's entertaining none the less.

    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    Jason says: "An incredible children's series"
    "My second favorite Narnia book."
    Overall

    While none of the series holds a candle to the first book in the series The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe. This one comes the closest. I adored this book. Every time I listen to it I am transported back to my childhood and all the worlds I ever imagined existed.

    Stephen Friedman is just inches away from everything he could ever desire. It's Los Angeles in the early 70s, and Friedman is living the groovy southern California life of a real-estate wheeler dealer. He's making money hand-over-fist and has long given up hope of finding the family he's lost in worn-torn Poland. But when a deceased woman's papers reveal that she possessed a priceless religious relic, and that she may have been his mother, Stephen becomes hungry for answers. A hunger that may kill him.

    Patricia says: "Wonderful except ..."
    "Not bad"
    Overall

    What works? Dekker's use of Nazi Germany and present day and his ability to tie them together into a moderately interesting mystery.

    What doesn't work? Drawing out the ending to an almost painful extent. And the scene in the car I honestly got confused.

    All in all not the best Dekker book I've read, but not the worst Dekker book I've read either.

    Overall

    It is a Christian book, written from a conservative Christian perspective, but beyond that it opened my eyes to another view of heaven. One where we won't just be sitting on clouds playing harps. I cry every time I read or hear the part about heaven. The mystery part isn't bad either. I would highly recommend it.
