I really enjoyed this book. Whether your male or female you'll love this book. I can hardly wait for the next installment.
yes, well written, great suspense, and great subject hidden in the story!
In this day and time where people act like there is no accountability this brings to focus that there is an accountability that could determine where you spend eternity.
Made it possible to get lost in the characters and the story.
I love the smell of books in the morning
This book was authored by the writers of the left behind series. Don't let that fool you though, this isn't a sermon disguised by action packed wrapping paper.
This book is fast paced and entertaining. Yes they talk about god, yes they pray. But let's be honest, most of us in these types of situations would be calling out to a higher power so don't fault the characters for that.
When I first started listening to this book the narrator's voices threw me off a bit. It's deep, really deep. It has a distinction to it that I wasn't sure would translate to other character voices well. But I was wrong. It takes a little warm up time but eventually the narrator finds his groove and I was very clearly able to distinguish the different characters. Also, his accent for Russian and middle eastern characters, along with those from Brooklyn is flawless. Job well done!
There is a lot a action in this book, immediately from the start. There's no warm up, get to know you period for the characters. You see these characters in their most vulnerable and it's refreshing. I like that my opinion of the characters is crafted from their reaction to certain events rather than their backstory.
This is part of a series so the ending is a cliffhanger. But that only made me more excited to listen to the next book.
Give this book a chance. Don't let the Christianity part stop you from enjoying a really great story!
No..there are better ones out there.
The suspense. Good plot.
He was ok. Competent.
A bit too much "born again" Christian mentality for my taste. Got in the way of the story.
Loved the story,and a the little bits of fact in between parts are scary. The focus of "getting saved" as an answer to everything is a bit naive. Having said that well worth a listen.
I wish I had checked the author before buying ... the story is pretty good, but for me, the religiosity - and a very born again religiosity which I personally don't find interesting or attractive, detracted. I'm guessing I bought this in one of those "first books in series" sales and I won't be buying any more. I loved Stefan Rudnicki's narration as usual. It was good enough I listened to the whole thing; it has to be pretty awful for me to stop mid-way through, but the born again stuff ... and the view of politics ... made me cringe too often to really enjoy.
