The book had a nice mix of suspense right from the start, multiple themes going on at the same time and brings resolution to the story. Enjoyable listen.

Everyone has an enemy. For the Child of God, our worst enemy is Satan, but we also deal with the world, and our own flesh in the lust of the eyes, the pride of life. Listen in as Sam, Amy, and Ranson deal with kidnapping, counterfeiting, murder, and telemarketing fraud. Can the Lord still save from sin? Can He still use men and women to spread the gospel to a lost world? Meet Dan Taylor and Gwenn Harper, and watch how the Lord's faithfulness can overcome our closest enemies.

Amazing that I can listen to this book then I'm listening to the radio and have to pause to remember if it is a book or the news. The reality of what Joel brings forth is what can be happening today in the news. This is a GREAT book. In fact, the entire series is tremendous!

A terrible secret was closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Nine years have gone by since an unlikely hero named Rom Sebastian first discovered a secret and consumed an ancient potion of blood to bring himself back to life in Forbidden. Surviving against impossible odds, Rom has gathered a secret faction of followers who have also taken the blood - the first Mortals in a world that is dead.

An abstract book that is a great though-provoking book. Easy book to get lost in. The previous book in the series is not necessary, but I would recommend "reading" that before "reading" this one.

Enjoy!

New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker teams with Tosca Lee to create this gripping thriller set in a desolate future. Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.

More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

Robert Whitlow’s gripping legal thrillers have won him a Christy Award and favorable comparisons to John Grisham. Higher Hope, the second novel in his Tides of Truth series, follows Savannah law clerk Tami Taylor as she assists on a case against a preacher who has been defaming a businessman with so-called prophecies from God. Though her firm wants to prove these prophecies are nothing more than slander, Tami can’t help but wonder if the preacher is, in fact, telling the truth.

Called “the John Grisham of the Christian market” ( Augusta Chronicle), best-selling author Robert Whitlow draws from extensive courtroom experience to deliver riveting legal thrillers. Defending teenaged runaway Jessie Whitewater against a shoplifting charge, new attorney Tami Taylor must determine why Jessie insists on lying to her—and why the teen is so terrified. But when the hand of evil strikes close to home, Tami finds herself gripped by the same fear.

Any additional comments?

This was a great book. Warning, it is a Christian book with Biblical themes. Don't get this book and complain about the Christian themes in it. For those of you who are believers, this book challenges your faith to believe if what God can speak, reveal and do ... yes, even today.
