Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of World War III, world leaders resolve as never before to eliminate war. The global conflict killed millions and wiped out entire countries. All nations agree to eradicate the most serious threat to world peace: religion.

Paul Stepola is a leader in the world's backlash against religious extremists. As an agent for the National Peace Organization, Paul relishes his job. It's not enough that the law has forced religion underground. With unlimited resources, Paul is determined to expose religious zealots, flush them out and destroy them.

His quest leads him to startling revelations, supernatural events he can't explain. The religious underground call them miracles. Paul calls them conspiracies. Until one hits close to home, and Paul can no longer deny the truth.

Enjoyable Book

This starts with 9/11 and goes from there. There is a modern day Paul and God has just performed a miracle for the whole world to see. I enjoyed it and look forward to the others in the series.

Exciting

Having completed the entire "Left Behind" series, I expected this to a rewrite of the same material. It was not. I was impressed and intrigued by the plot line and the characters. I found it exciting. It held my interest to the end and left me eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

Exciting fiction

I could hardly put down my iPod while listening to this book. There is great action. I enjoyed the book very much. The ending did leave me on edge, and I wish it had wrapped things up a little better. Warning: If you listen to this, you'll have to get the 2nd book "Silenced". I don't think there is a 3rd book in this trilogy yet.

Not your usual Left Behind

Better than I expected, not "hokie" like some of the content in the Left Behind series. The story moves along at a fast enough pace to keep you interested and yet is not over done. I look forward to the next installment.

I’m coming Soon...

This story is great. I enjoyed how certain parts paralleled with The Word of God. I don’t want to spoil it for any future listeners but I recommend this audiobook 100%. Now it time for me to get Silenced. Oh that’s the continuation to Soon. Great narration too!

Great Story

Enjoyed the story but I found the narrator detracted from the story. This story is unlike any other end times book of fiction I have read before kuddos for thinking outside of the box.

Good story, terrible narrator.

Such a pity that I had to return this book after the first chapter, but the narrators monotous tone was driving me insane. Rather just purchase the book and read it yourself.

Ride of action

Edge of the seat suspense with encouraging scripture references for those who need a reminder of God's faithfulness to those who are His children.

Pretty Good....

This is my first ever audiobook and, overall, I liked it. A few points: 1) not sure if this is done regularly, but characters could be done by different people, especially females 2) I listened to this in 3 car trips, 2 days and it held my attention 3) I like the logic behind the coming of WW III and the replacement of AD with P3 and 4) I am now going to buy "Silence" so I can continue this story.
