Publisher's Summary

In the thrilling ninth book of the best-selling inspirational series of all time, the sweeping, apocalyptic saga of the end times on planet earth continues. 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. Skillfully mixing Biblical prophecy and current events, LaHaye and Jenkins pack their story full of action and adventure. Narrator Frank Muller's legendary voice heightens the growing tension of the end times on planet Earth.

Bad Reading

You need to listen to this book to make it through the rest of the series, but you will really appreciate Richard Ferrone after this.

Three stars is generous. I liked the story, but the narrator made it somewhat less than enjoyable. In all fairness to the narrator though, where was the producer?

Great book, great series, annoying narrator.

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.

Another horrible narration by Muller

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.

Great book!

Loved the story, the narrator changing voices for the different characters was awesome. The story was read neither to fast nor to slow.

Great story

This was another great story however the narration was horrible! It was hard to distinguish between characters and what was up with the heavy breathing behind every other sentence?

Bad narrating

The actual book is good but the narrating in this one is very bad. Bring Richard Ferrone Back!
