Publisher's Summary

Marilena Carpathia has only one dream; to be a mother. So when a mysterious clairvoyant promises the fulfillment of this dream, Marilena does not hesitate. Through genetic engineering and the power of the Prince of Darkness himself, Marilena is about to become a chosen vessel, one who will unknowingly give birth to the greatest evil the world has ever known.

Halfway around the world, God’s plans are subtly being carried out too. Young Ray Steele is determined to avoid one day taking over the family business. Instead, Ray sets his heart on becoming a pilot.

Soon Marilena’s offspring, Nicholae Carpathia and Ray Steele’s lives will intersect. Good and evil will clash in an explosion that will shake the world as the eternal battle for souls comes to earth, and the world hurtles toward the countdown to the Rapture!

good book but not as good as the last 12

it's a great book and gives great detail to the 2 most main characters of the seires. this book could also be the beginning of the seires as well because it doesn't give away really anything about the story to come. but it wasn't as exciting as the other books have been so I can see that it might turn some people away but I enjoyed listing to the entire 13 books

The Rising: Left Behind Series

A number of memorable moments. Two were life threatening plane landings.

Loved the book, and as a prequel loved the earlier stories of the childhoods of the three main characters. Two being the heroes of the series of the set of books and the third the future, evil, antagonist of the world. Review by Linda L. Dreier

DO NOT BUY this BOOK!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

To remove all chapters but the last.

What could Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This book has no bearing on its title. It fails to intrigue, inspire, inform or conform to what is expected from previous books.

Have you listened to any of Jack Sondericker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narration was great.

What character would you cut from The Rising?

Most.

Any additional comments?

This book comes very close to false advertising.

It's ok

The prequel was written after the series and it is to give a bit of taste of how things could have been developing before the big event. It is alright but not a page turner like the series per se. Go for it if you are a fan of the other books. As for the narrator, it is horrible; he has a problem with his throat making terrible noises as he reads. I can't believe he is reading the whole series. What a shame because the books are good; I read them all and am going for audible to have another taste.
