Publisher's Summary

Tim LaHaye's most exciting series ever, Babylon Rising, continues with this explosive new installment, including more revelations than ever before.

In The Edge of Darkness, LaHaye reveals the meaning behind some of the most carefully guarded Biblical prophecies to expose a conspiracy with terrifying consequences for our modern world.

This time Michael Murphy sets off in search of the Lost Temple of Dagon and the dark secrets of the strange god once worshipped by the ancient Philistines. His quest will lead to a final confrontation with an old enemy and uncover one of the Bible's most feared warnings, a prophecy of false miracles, false messiahs, and ultimate evil that will be fulfilled in our time...and that not even Murphy can stop once it's begun.

Once again, Tim LaHaye combines his unmatched insight into Biblical prophecy with his unique skills as a master storyteller to deliver a suspense thriller of nonstop action with a thought-provoking message for our troubled times.

Don't miss the rest of the Babylon Rising series.

    "These Books just keep getting better!!!"

    If you are a fan of the Left Behind series of just a new reader. These books just keep making Scripture easier to understand. I think we should all pay attention to the Books... Because to put it simply. "One day these events will play out for all to see."

    Story
    "Rip-off author needs an editor & story has no end"
    What disappointed you about The Edge of Darkness?

    I am willing to put forth a willing suspension of disbelief when there is a professor that is also an adept killer (though only in self defense) who can easily beat up 2 ninjas and one sumo wrestler and who also flies all over the world (on a professors salary) to do archeological work. (that is not sponsered by his university. However I can't buy into the fact that while on these archeological forays with a killer at large the main characters stop to discuss parts of the bible in a pedantic manner, meanwhile their buddy is outside getting slaughtered because they stopped to have a lenghty bible discussion. I don't buy it. Also they could not have this conversation while running becuase no one can carry on talking like that while running for their lives.


    What could Bob Phillips and Tim LaHaye have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Reality checks.....try running your ideas by someone...preferably female. Your story reads like a totally unrealistic video game. I mean SERIOUSLY bad.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Poor accents.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Edge of Darkness?

    I am Christian and I can see why the author is trying to include biblical explanations for things...but they need to be less pedantic, and need to take place at realistic times. Also they know the bible and know that these things are going to happen since they are predicted in the bible. The main character knows this to so I don't understand why he is fighting so hard against the 7 in the book. He knows their reign is predestined. Also have a hard time believing that 2 drop dead females fall for this blow hard of a professor. I also don't believe Talon would be soooo stupid as to use his submarine as a ram. He would had to have been smarter than that. He should have just bided his time and stole it from the archeologist like he did with every other object.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel seriously ripped off. This is clearly part of a series but the author didn't even bother to make a suitable beginning or end also it was very short. I don't understand why he stopped there it didn't make any sense to me. (Other than he wanted to make more $$$ ) by writing little novels rather than writing a good and complete work....well guess what this is the last book of yours that I buy!!!!

    Story
    "Murphy is no Indiana Jones"
    If you could sum up The Edge of Darkness in three words, what would they be?

    It's an adventure


    What other book might you compare The Edge of Darkness to and why?

    The rest of the series. Hope there is a book 5


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes I like best are the challenges from Methuselah. I like all the history and how Murphy puts the puzzle together


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    For the whole series it everytime Murphy finds the treasure. Wish there was less romance. In this book it's when Murphy gets back at Talon


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books. I've listened several times to the all 4 so far. But Murphy, as Methuselah calls him, is a blunder head. Don't get me wrong. I really get engaged in these stories, so much so that I find myself yelling at Murphy on many occasions. Despite that I love all the history Murphy teaches. Wish I could take one of his classes. I'm champing at the bit for book 5. I like Paul Michael as the reader. Hope they continue to use him.
