The year is 2016, and America is no more. The United States, Canada, and Mexico now comprise a single, unified front to the world: the North American Union. Implanted ID chips are soon to become mandatory for every citizen of the NAU, and Trez Sleighton, a disgruntled ex-Army officer, takes to the mountains of Colorado to come to terms with the changing world-and his own hand in the whole mess.
Then sounds the trumpet.
Around the planet, people simply disappear.
In their wake, monsters of legend suddenly roam free to terrorize those who have been left behind. The legendary Nephilim, half-angels who struggle with their own demons, walk the earth in both darkness and light. The world's most beloved celebrity, movie star Samouel Gallo, comes forward to make a long-awaited announcement that might mean world peace-or world damnation.
Meanwhile, a handful of the remaining citizens of the NAU feel the call to go west. Stricken by the loss of their loved ones, alienated by the inhumanity that has consumed their cities, these select few are moved by an inexplicable impulse to converge on a small town tucked away in the Rocky Mountains... a town most of them have never even heard about. As their paths turn toward Shaleford, CO, where Trez is struggling to understand an apocalyptic truth, the rest of the world waits to hear what tidings Samouel Gallo will bring. Is he the man of legend-a Bringer of Peace? Is he the archenemy of old? Is he... the Antichrist?
Open the pages of Pray and journey with those who set out to fight for their salvation as the world races to its horrific conclusion.
The Book of Revelation just got scarier.

Pray grabbed my interest from the beginning of the book. The story was great, although I wasn't for sure about the were wolf part of the book. Even with that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and thought the Wayne June narrated the book wonderful. I would recommend it to my friends.
The cussing I could live without. I get enough of that in the real world.
omit the cussing. Or file his book in the non-faith dept
no, the 1st wasn't even good
Remove the unnecessary Violence.
As a Christian I was expecting a more accurate scriptural treatment of the subject. There were numerous errors as to Bible prophesy and the book was extremely violent. I felt if it were a secular book it would be considered well written in a Stephen King way. Frankly most women will find it offensive as the portayal of women is of shrinking whining creatures and the black woman is particularly type cast to a Gone With the Wind character. If you are looking for a violent last days book that has little to do with true Christian prophesy then this is your book. If you are a Christian who has studied eschatology you will be frustrated with lthe inconsistencies. Werewolves for example???? Good and bad Nephilim on the earth. I thought the reader did a pretty good job and would listen to books read by him again.
I tried - I really did. I just couldn't get past the terrible narration. Every sentence is a cliffhanger. It just ended up sounding childish. Might be better in print, but I doubt it.
The story was far-fetched and too "preachy".
I thought the plot was good, but the writing didn't follow through.
This is a great, edge-of-your-seat book. I loved it from beginning to end.
I forgot her name but it was the very brave teenage girl who was always excited about the Word of God. She motivated everyone! Oh, to be so brave and stand upish as she...
I kind of figured that they were going to say that Eric was their son, but when it was revealed towards the end, it was awesome... how exciting to know that the child she cried for was right in front of her all this time.
Not a writer so I have no idea.
no, just loved the book. thank you!
Yes, to update my memory when the next one comes out.
When the President was eaten in his office, his whole team was eaten too.
When the anti-christ turned on his step-mother.
The Good....If you like the post-rapture genre this is a pretty good one. The story moved well, and it sets up to be a nice trilogy. There are several characters who the story follows and I enjoyed the vast majority of them. (I always enjoy when you switch to a character and you get excited, just dying to know what happens to them as their story progresses). I had not read (or listened) to John Prescott previously but will definitely follow his future work.
The bad...quite simply, this may be the worst narration I have ever heard. I honestly can't begin to put it into words. The narrator has a nice, and very powerful voice. However, the reading is consistently over the top in terms of emotion and tone. It literally takes away from the story, and I was finding it difficult to concentrate on the plot.
Suggestion...maybe just buy this one and read it to yourself.
