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.

The first 7 books were narrated by the same person and then in 8 they switched to another who continued in this one (9). I don't usually have a problem with that and expected to get past it by the middle of #8. The two things that continue to annoy me is how he pronounces Zion and this weird breathy voice at the end of each sentence when reading the narrator portions. It's like he is trying to make it extra dramatic. For the most part he does a great job on the dialogue portions incorporating many different accents. I know this was recorded 15 years ago and hopefully Mr. Muller has honed his craft. Overall it's worth listening to. I am thankful for the audiobook version since I would never find time to sit down and read it otherwise.
