Whisper of the Seventh Thunder is a thriller ripped from today's headlines with roots into what many believe might be the coming apocalypse. When Gabriel Stone's devout wife dies in an unlikely airline disaster, he finishes the novel she had warned him not to write. The book goes inside and behind the Bible's Book of Revelation to reveal startling connections to covert operations that are, quite unknown to Stone, about to tear the world's political landscape to shreds. As the book nears publication Stone suddenly finds himself the pawn in a war between superpowers and supernatural forces, each with hidden agendas beyond his comprehension and stakes that pivot on his ability to accept the unbelievable and stop the unthinkable.
Whisper of the Seventh Thunder is a book that is as personal as it is global in scope, juxtaposing choices that are at once spiritual and life-dependent, with nothing short of our very souls hanging in the balance. Winner of the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Award for best novel in the Suspense/Thriller category.
Would you listen to Whisper of the Seventh Thunder again? Why?
I don't listen to audio books again, but this one i might consider, as there is a lot of details that can get lost in translation.
What other book might you compare Whisper of the Seventh Thunder to and why?
Any of the dystopian/religous conspiracy/secret knowledge genre of books, of which there seems to be an ever growing number. This one is unique from a number of perspectives, not the least of which is the POV of the author/narrator.
Which scene was your favorite?
The resolution is impressive, and very unexpected.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Actually all of it is. The POV is so compelling, that linked with the original concept,
Any additional comments?
This is a unique dystopian/nominally religous oriented story, with many twists. Well performed, and far different from most other offerings in this category. Highly recommended.

The first part of the story was difficult to get through and I nearly bailed. There were so many names and it cut back and forth between locations....setting up the characters for sure but between the confusing story start and the narration it did not make for a good beginning. (the narration was Dick Tracy like....made it almost seem corny) I was nearly to the halfway point before things started to come together...and then I couldn't stop listening. The count of the "thunders" and the ties to the bible became chilling as each one passed.
The epilogue - by far - was the most profound....I will definitely listen again.....really makes you think......
Recommend for the story and for anyone interested in lit about biblical revelation.....
Difficult to follow at first. Narrator didn't provide any difference between character's voices. Had to restart the book a couple times.
The story is well written and the characters are well developed. The narration is top line and well done. I enjoyed the story line and the ending which has a classical twist to it. Sure to enjoy if you liked the type of mystery the da vinci code was.
