A must read for everyone.Makes you really question am I ready are my family and friends ready?"People get ready Jesus is coming "
This thrilling conclusion of the Underground Zealot series is well worth reading. The ending is very satisfying, and the characters did not always remain as they seemed to be at first. It was interesting reading about the reactions of various individuals when an undeniable act of God occurs, and the amazing, ego-driven stubbornness of some. The entire series is definitely thought-provoking and intense. I highly recommend it.
More great suspense from Jerry Jenkins, although not up to par with, say, the Left behind series. I felt like I just couldn't connect with the characters. I'm kind of on the fence about the ending, too - it seemed very pessimistic. I suppose Jenkins was just trying to make it realistic, but I didn't like it. It sort of downed the triumphant feel of the rest of the ending. Otherwise, though, it was good. Not excellent, not really memorable (for me, anyway), but good.

This was a great finish in this trilogy of books. It was exciting to read the character transformations and plot twists and turns. The continued unfolding of the gospel was well written into the story. It was another suspenseful read.
The writing and story are at least on par with the previous two novels, both of which were better than usual for Jerry Jenkins. However, (view spoiler) Even with the slight disappointment, it was still somewhat good; ...more

I couldn't understand why there was a number 3 after the word Shadowed. I thought there was maybe more than one book in the series but couldn't figure out how to tell if there was more. It was such a great book that I'm going to have to read the first two and then reread this one again. Can't wait to see what was in the first two I missed.

This was an exciting conclusion to a pretty good series. It did not end how I thought that it would end. It was a satisfying ending.This series caused a lot of would I deal with religious persecution? It is good to remind ourselves of the freedom that we have here and to remember to thank God for it.
I didn't find it the page turner the Left Behind series was but it was a good series which shows what could come about if/when government has too much control and interferes with religious rights of citizens. I thought that something in the climax or final confrontation would involve Ranold being a first-born.
R.Frederick Riddle
As usual, I enjoyed the book. For those of us knowing the future as told in the Bible, the story's ending sentence: "How long before the world once again fell under the shadow of persecution?" is a mystery only as to when.
Mike Farris
Great read from co-author of the Left Behind series. Practice of religion has been banned after the aftermath of World War III and a group of underground zealots try to survive while staying true to God.
Marti Woods
Could not put this book down! Read it in 4 days. The first in the series was a little slow bot the second book started getting really good half way through. Saving the best for last.
This was an ok series it kept my attention but I've read better. Not even close to left behind. I agree with the others that said the ending was not what I expected.
Zacksmom Okon
This was an intriguing read - and well worth the time. It's nice to see the husband/father rise up and play out the role he should in the family!

Recommends it for: Anyone who liked the Left Behind Series.
It's a great book for anyone who enjoyed the Left Behind series. It's a page turner, and I really liked it, of course, I also like Jerry Jenkins.
If you loved the Left Behind series, you will also want to give this one a try. This is the last book of a three-book series.
Susan Smith
The final book in The Underground Zealot series, Shadowed was pretty good. It's a quick read and keeps you fairly well engaged.

Amazing. I stayed up until 2:30 am and finished it. The ending was a bit quick regarding Ranold, but loved it all the same.
Well written, fast paced, thought provoking series. Could you call it Christian cloak and dagger?
Exciting conclusion to this trilogy which really inspired me to think about eternity!
Another great Christian fiction book.
