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.

Yes. I enjoyed it tremendously. I'd like to have the next 2 installments in audio file as well.
Hell, The End Of All Things.....those books would make this book perfect!
When the woman was shown what would have happened if her baby had lived until he was a young boy. He would have been tortured to death. That's why the Lord chose to take him so early in his life. Protect him from a worse life.
I absolutely loved this idea. I want more but the "Author" pulled his final book from release on the release date, with no explanations or apologies to his then-fans. I really wanted the final book. I pre-ordered it and everyting. Shame on John Prescott!
I see we have an author who doesn't care about his fans.
The story is hurt by the inaccurate stereotypical characterization of the only none white character. The racist in the supermarket seemed to function as a necessary preemptive voice to divert the conclusion forming in the reader's mind. The author's characterization of a courageous and strong woman belies the presentation of a caricature of antebellum southern crossed with a young "Bad Girls Club" mentality. She's always hungry, her gift is singing, she cooks and fights even when it might risk the safety of others. Stereotype #66, can't control emotions. "Uh huh" punctuates every sentence and although described as a mature woman in age, she pops her neck like a teenager. REALLY?! If black characters are not expendable in the first few chapters, they become the kind of comic relief that only is effective with readers who believe the author took time to research people and match his characters to the time and place of the plot.
Without "Mizz Nettie" caricatured as she is, would continue the trilogy. Perhaps Arch Angel Michael could heal the author's misconception of black women.
I enjoyed the story and it made me think I liked how the author presented most everything. The main complaint I have with the book how ever was all the cursing. For this to be labeled a Christian book as well as a book on the end times I think that could have been left out or at least made the Christians in the story to not curse.
I'm not sure if I would recommend it for that very reason.
Over all though I loved the story and thought the narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.
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.
The book of Revelation comes alive in this audio book. It is a lot like Left Behind, but with a surprising twist of Horror. I really enjoyed the readers ability to change his voice for the many characters...some sounded sooo evil, that it really added to the enjoyment of the story.
I recommend this audio book and of course all the LEFT BEHIND AUDIOS...ESPECIALLY
THE LIVE ACTION DRAMAS. LEFT BEHIND AUDIO BOOKS 1 Thru 12 EXPERIENCE IN SOUND AND DRAMA. THESE ARE SOO AMAZING AND GET YOU THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS COMING. TAKE A LISTEN SO YOU WON'T BE ONE OF THOSE LEFT BEHIND!
I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANYTHING AWAY, BUT THE HORROR TWIST FROM REVELATION REALLY ADDS SOME INTENSE MOMENTS TO THE STORY.
IT MADE ME REALLY WANT TO BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO THE NEXT BOOK IN THE SERIES. I HOPE IT WILL BE IN AUDIO BOOK FORMAT VERY SOON.
I WROTE THIS REVIEW FOR PRAY 666 THE REVELATION CHRONICLES
FEBRUARY 13, 2013 I HOPE YOU WILL GIVE IT A CHANCE.
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.
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.
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
