This is probably the hardest review I've written so far. I'm really torn by this story, on one hand I absolutely loved it, but at the same time I had a difficult time with one aspect of the story. Maybe I'm being to hard but I have a difficult time believing that God would give someone the ability to become invisible when needed. I know He COULD do it if He wished, but I'm just not sure He WOULD do it. This was a distraction for me, and as I said before, maybe I'm being too hard, but it did bother me. Other than that detail, the story was wonderful, it kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The main character was absolutely a delight!

What made the experience of listening to Gift from the Storm the most enjoyable?

Even though the story had a modern day setting, it still had a very charming old fashioned feel to it. I felt like I was listening to the Waltons or Little House on the Prairie when life was simpler and families closer than at present day.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Amy, you couldn't help but sympathize with her struggle to put together the puzzle of who she really was.

Overall the story had a very satisfying ending and was worth listening to. "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com."

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book! The author did a beautiful job describing the characters, I not only could picture them in my mind but I also came to love them and care about what happened to each of them, I was actually quite sad that it came to an end. This story was a wonderful illustration of the love of our Lord who continues to care about us and reach out to us even when we're so bitter and hateful against him. It goes to show that only God can heal a wounded heart and restore our ability to love again.

This is the first book I've listened to by this author and I was NOT disappointed!! The story-line was very believable and covered territory I hadn't previously thought of in a disaster scenario. Kevin Pierce was fanastic as usual, I think when eventually we really are hit by one of these apocalyptic events I'll be listening for the voice of Kevin Pierce to begin explaining what's happening to us, lol!! I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!!

Mass murder doesn't happen in Matt Foley's town. It doesn't happen to his friends. Someone is going to pay. Disturbing crime scenes are nothing new to the Twin Falls Police Chief. But this one is different. The victims are friends. In their Tudor mansion just inside the city limits, a family is dead: husband, wife, two kids, and the family cook. The killer made one mistake. He left a survivor. The husband is one of the big three in the microchip industry. The family lived a quiet modest life. It doesn't make sense. Until....

Too many times I listen to the first book in a series and sit on pins & needles anxiously awaiting the next installment only to find myself completely disappointed. It was not the case with this book, if anything it was even better! Of course that could be because I became emotionally attached to the main characters in the first book, so with the second book they had me at hello!! I hope the author is reading this because I'm desperately hoping for book #3. The narration was perfect with just the right amount of intrigue and each character well defined. The icing on the cake was no bad language or sexual content to distract from the storyline, just a nice clean murder mystery. Well Done!!!

It's been awhile since I've read a book that kept me up much later than I intended to because I couldn't put it down!! I kept waiting for a slow part but they were few and far between. Oh well, it was totally worth it! It's a little hard to keep track of all of the characters but keep with it, it's worth it. I won't give the story away other than to say I was completely wrong about the killer, I'm usually pretty good at figuring it out, but this one slipped right by me. The best part is you don't have to worry about language or sex scenes, it's completely clean. Being a murder mystery there is of course violence, but it's not gory, I think it would be a perfect audiobook to listen to on a family trip as long as the kids weren't really young. The narrator did a superb job, his voice was perfect for the story and the characters!!

I bought this audio book on the day it became available and I wasn't disappointed! If only we could clone Mark Goodwin so he could keep up with my "prepper fiction" addiction! His books are always exciting, wholesome and loaded with useful tips. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Mark is in his garden, grieving and depressed over the unexplained death of his son and without knowing it, is almost coaxed by a demon into committing suicide. But, at the last moment, Sotare, an angel, rescues him and is later permitted to appear to Mark in the Garden. The two dialogue about God, life, death, good, evil, the spiritual realm, and the nature of truth. However, all is not well. The demons are watching and powerful evil forces are sent to kill and destroy those who are close to Mark and those who are praying for him.

This audio book is right up there with "This Present Darkness" and Piercing the Darkness" by Frank Peretti, as a matter of fact, it may be my favorite of the three!! It really makes you think about the spiritual battle being fought daily for our souls.
