I enjoyed this book. It held me throughout. I think it is better than the first book in the series The Firstborn but I do think that a reader would benefit greatly from reading the first one before this one. In this one we follow three of the characters from the first book, Hannah, John, and Devin.

I was fascinated, truly. I really fell in love with John's character, which propelled me into the story itself. By the end I was breath taken by the extreme manner of storytelling, even the open ending left me in awe. It was a beautifully brilliant story and it was quite well told. Thrilling, I even fell asleep reading it last night instead of being sensible and putting it away earlier. In all truth and honesty, I really enjoyed it and gleaned quite a bit from it as well. An excellent read. I lo ...more
An exciting suspense thriller that seamlessly blends the supernatural with the truths of the Christian faith. If you love action and believe that the supernaturally gifted has a place in Christianity this book is for you.
