First they were Left Behind. Then they formed the Tribulation Force. Now they must face Nicolae. Here is the most explosive of the three books thus far, the seven-year tribulation is nearing the end of its first quarter, when prophecy says that "the wrath of the lamb" will be poured out upon the earth. Rayford Steele becomes the ears of the tribulation saints at the highest levels of the Carpathia regime. Meanwhile, Buck Williams attempts a dramatic all-night rescue run from Israel through the Sinai that will hold you breathless to the end.

The book is rated 5 stars: all books in this series are in my opinion. The 2 star deduction is for the reader. The first thing that got on my nerves is that he pronounces Carpathia: car-path-ee-ah instead of car-pay-thee-ah. I was willing to see past that, but he has a serious problem with defining proper character voices. In this reader's version, Carpathia has the voice of an effeminate old man. Buck has the voice of a gruff man in his 50s, Rayford sounds pretty much like the reader himself, Chloe sounds flighty, and Rosensweig doesn't sound even a little bit like a new york Jew, let alone an Israelite! Oh, and Zion is prounced sea-on by this reader. (i'm sorry if I've misspelled names, but I'm writing this in a rush!)
I'm only about 4 hours into the book, but I have half a mind to rebuy the book by the better reader (Richard Ferrone) - much better at character definition. Unfortunately i decided from the preview clip that i liked this guy better and bought books 3-6 with him already!
I don't mean to sound so rude, but when you pay this much for an audio book, you expect to enjoy all aspects of the book, not just the writing (which I emphasize is great!).
I sure love to hate Nicolae. So many things going on, and I never get lost. Great story, Great reader. I would recommend this to everyone.
Love this series..its fiction yet based on truth.... Highly Recommend. Merry Christmas to all.........
The narration is so bad it is very distracting. Wish I could get Ferrone version still. Looks like I will be reading the rest of the series on my Kindle.
I listened to this several years ago, after having read the books, and found it just as enjoyable as before. I know this is fiction, but I don't think it is totally beyond the realm of possibility. It certainly makes you think, especially considering the state of the world these days.
