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.

Wayne June is awesome! He had the right voice for this book. It was a good book with the right man to read it.
I liked that it followed the Bible and the terror that will come with the rapture
No, But I hope he will do more of this type of book
The only problem I had with this book is the cursing of Christians. I know that people curse and I really liked this book especially with salvation in it but I could have done with less cursing
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
the storyline, the characters. the reader really sold this book, he made it exciting
making revelation come alive.
He is an excellent reader, so dramatic. you really visualized what he was reading
can't wait for the second book
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.
John has put out a very good piece of work here. I would not say it was better than Left Behind, but it is at least as good. It has a darker feel and seems to me to be written for adults. I enjoyed this from start to finish and would recommend it to anyone that likes works relating to the Book of Revelations.
I think John has taken several liberties with the Biblical writings and attempts to explain it away through one small passage. In the book there are werwolves, and vampires that hunt God's people. Werewolves and Vampires were never mentioned in the Bible. John takes the position that God had instructed the writer not to record some of what he saw, and it was during this time that the writer observed the monsters. John took a huge leap with the Worlds church. The leader was taken from the priests in the Vatican. The anti christ then turns this priest into a Vampire. This vampire and many others have to feed all of the time during the book. The evil is shone to be present during this portion of the rapture. The Bible states that there will be no outward sign of the evil until after the anti christ has risen from the dead. That is the second really good thing about the book, it leaves room for speculation and debate.
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.
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.
THIS WAS MY FIRST AUDIBLE BOOK AND I WAS SOOO PLEASED WITH IT. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME, THE NARRATING BY WAYNE JUDE WAS TOTALLY HILARIOUS, AND ALSO HAD ME ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT, I LOVED IT.
WHEN MICHAEL AND THE WEREWOLF FAUGHT. IT WAS WRITTEN SO AWESOME.
WHEN NETTIE PUNCHED THE GUY IN THE GROCERY STORE.
YES IT KEPT ME WANTING MORE AND MORE.
BUY IT, IT'S WORTH IT! :)
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.
"Take my advice - don't bother!"
I confess to having an interest in this genre but I don't want to commit to buy the 10+ books series that you so often see. I wanted a complete story in one book. I expect these stories to come from those with a religious rather than literary background but I thin I am right to expect some standard. The story (part from the Apocalyptic progression) is so very poor. An actor goes on TV with world leaders and announces he will take over the world governments and everyone is OK with this - no opposition! Ridiculous when 'werewolves' start to become part of the revelation story. And the writing ... ' ...the military drilled into the mountain like Tolkien dwarves..' really? I really struggled through about 7 of the 14 (or so) hours of this story but when the character of Miss Netty was introduced, I could;t continue. Absolutely appalling on so many levels.
There's just too much nonsense in the book to sustain it. The author should really cut unnecessary sensationalism by about 30%.
No, the performance is almost as bad as the writing. Very limited and stereotypical.
I would cut Miss Netty - the 'uncle Tom' stereotypical black woman from New Orleans, from the book. I would like to think we have moved on from there.
One of the worst books I have listened to.
