Twenty-five days into the Great Tribulation, the horror and suffering in the world is intensifying. The Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia, now the complete embodiment of evil, is preparing to desecrate the holy temple in Jerusalem by entering and declaring himself god. While Carpathia's forces seek to destroy the Tribulation Force once and for all, the world teeters on the brink of the ultimate battle: Armageddon. But the Tribulation Force of believers has more than a few tricks up their collective sleeve.

This is such a great story ruined by horrendous narration by Frank Muller. Carpathia sounds like Dracula, Fortunato sounds like a blend between a Boston collegian and a philly food truck owner. The silly country accents are so out of place. So distracting all the way through. Richard Ferrone was so much better at narrating this series.

Those who were left behind after the Rapture must now make a crucial decision. Each person must choose whether to receive the mark of the beast, or die. Never has faith in God been more important for the group of believers called the Tribulation Force, who now face danger on all sides. Valiantly, they continue to urge new followers to accept Christ's love.

Richard Ferrone did an amazing job of connecting you with characters in previous books. Muller’s silly accents are so distracting it’s hard to follow the story. Fortunato sounds like a Bostonian who can’t decide if he should maybe be from Philly instead. The silly country accents throughout don’t fit either. On top of that the horrible mispronunciations of names just makes it a total embarrassment. The story overall is great and fun to reread many years later.
