In the Book of Revelation, a man named John has a prophetic dream. He dreams of the final prophecies that will come to pass - and the seven archangels that guard them. Each angel waits to sound their trumpet at God's appointed time, preparing humanity to fight and win the final battle. Two thousand years later, Father Chris Mognahan is a member of the Hetairia Melchizedek, a secret society within the Catholic Church that studies Biblical omens. The society asks Chris to investigate an unusually grotesque crime - a murder on a college campus where the killer's hand literally burned off the victim's face. While the killing seems isolated at first, the society ties the murder to the final Biblical prophecy and a terrifying omen that the order of the prophecies is about to be disrupted. The final battle is coming too soon - long before humanity is prepared to win it.

I'm usually not a fiction guy, but the tie in to the apocalyptic scenario from the Book of Revelation sucked me in, tho this is not a religious book. I always wonder if that stuff will happen during my life time. I'm not Catholic, but this fictional and supernatural inside look on the Catholic church was pretty amusing. I would listen on my drive to and from work, and really looked forward to my drive time.
The narrator brings the story to life and does a fabulous job portraying the wildly different characters - everyone from a college girl to the Pope. You forget that it's one guy doing all the voices.
I connected with the characters, was totally shocked by the twist, and ultimately, freaking loved the story.
Colorful, intense, moving
The story grips and the characters draw you in.
I'd love to take out Francis but if I told you why, it'd spoil the story.
A great religious thriller
Chris because he was tempted,but kept his faith and vows
No, but he makes you feel you are a part of the story
It's a great title as it is
A great religious thriller very well written,and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I hope another one is in the works
The narrator sounded very robotic. The story was very, very slow. Some parts were interesting but I wouldn't recommend. The dialogue didn't sound natural between the characters.
