Listening to the spell binding unfolding of the spiritual war going on for the town of Ashton, I cannot help but wondering if this is going on right here and now for America. Frank Peretti is at his best in this spiritual warfare saga and in my opinion he does an excellent job in describing how Satan and his demons can get a foothold in people's lives and how they can influence people's decisions by painting a completely different picture of their appearance and the subleties of their deceptions. I hope people can use this bok as a guideline to the warfare that is going on right here among us. This book and it's sequel "Piercing the darkness" are two books no Christian should be without. I rank it right with C.S.Lewis' Screwtape letters.
Once again I found myself drawn into Ted Dekker's world of Fantasy and reality interwoven seamlessly in this latest thriller.I loved hoe he tied this book in with the Black, Red, White trilogy through the books of history and the return of Thomas Hunter in this book(now as a fictional character) Having grown up on Sci Fi and all that is very often used as an excuse for religion I find it refreshing that Ted Dekker manages to weave fiction and Christianity together without giving up any of the message that Christianity has to offer. I am sorry if some people seem to be put off whenever Christian analogies are interwoven into the stories by Dekker, yet I am very impressed to see a well written book that does not compromise on its message. Thank you Ted Dekker for once again delivering a riveting tale.
I have made it a habit to listen to audio books on my way to and from work. "Obsessed" has made me enjoy this time so much more and I find myself taking detours and staying in my car to listen to this story.
It is well written and Dekker has become one of my favourite authors in the Christian genre. The story flows seamlessly back and forth between 1943 and 1973 interweaving the time periods and personalities.
Just like in Thr3e you will be in suspense until the final page of the book, or in audio format until the final minute, with all of its plot twists and turns.
