Not as great as the first book but still a really good read!
The Tribulations are half over. Sam has been turning demons to ash for three and a half years and now he can see a light at the end of the tunnel. But what that light is he has no idea. What reward awaits him for his good works?
There is no end to the action, though there are some slow spots, as Sam fights his way across country learning what he's capable of as he goes. It's a fun read. It kept me engaged. I continued to be invested in w...more

SUMMARY (60 words or less)
I’ve been wanting to read this one for some time but life stop me. Only able to find time to listen to books. But I’m so glad I finally read. It’s like a breath of fresh air to read a really good st ...more

Genre: Young Adult, Apocalyptic, Angel, Demons, Paranormal, Romance, fantasy
Cover: The only change was to the color of the fire and that is fine with me... Why change it, it works and lets us know it's part of the same trilogy.
Thumbs: 4 Out 4 Up
Overall: Very intense having no idea which way the author would go at times. It's a unique twist to the rapture and tribulation that only a fan of both God and the paranormal could dream up. I found that I like the paranormal POV the s ...more
Being a second book in the series it had both it had its advantages and drawbacks. Let’s get the negative out of the way first so we can move on to discuss the awesomeness of the book. When I read Rapture, I was enthralled by it. Although Tribulation maintained the fast pace of the first book it didn’t really provide anything new. What we read in Tribulation was more or less same what ...more
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Sam is our hero. He's half-demon, half-human ( a Camion). In book one of the series he learns his father is Satan. He was trained by a master swordsman. He wields special swords (katana and wakisashi) designed to kill demons. He's on a mi ...more
In the second book of the series, Sam finds himself very much alone for the majority of the time. There are secondary characters that come and go at various parts, but this is really Sam's book - his strug ...more
First off, I would like to mention that I was lucky enough to get this in ebook form from the author. And that I was very lucky in that regard.
This book was pretty engrossing from the get-go. While it took me a little while to figure out the characters and how they fit into the plot, the pace was quick enough that I wasn't bored. The premise of the entire series is extremely interesting-- how does a half-human, half-demon f ...more
So. Right from the get-go, I have to say this. The main character's name is Samael. I guess that's an angel's name, I dunno - what I DO know is the aut ...more
I feel so bad for Sam. I continue to root for him, and feel his confusion over the tug-of-war both sides (demons and angels) seem to be playing. For me, a human, I don't think I like the black-and-white view of the angels...they would seem to condemn someone because of the fault of their birth, not what's in their heart. I'm not a fan! However, I absolutel ...more
Tribulation is book two in the “Rapture Trilogy” by Phillip W Simpson. Having recently finished Rapture I was keen to discover what happened next for Sam, the main character. Simpson has again created a wonderful world in this book (which seems a rather ironic description given the Earth is desolate, virtually uninhabitable and over run with demons!) along with strong character ...more
I got my examination period going on these days, so I was really pressured on finishing this on time. (thanks for the extension in my deadline, also.)
This is the sequel of Rapture, a post-apocalytic book, which focuses on Sam, the son of satan and his attempts to gain his side with Aimi and Hikari , in Heaven.
I really like when books with a main theme on religion, using passages from the H ...more
I really enjoyed this sequel to Rapture. While I still enjoyed Rapture, this book was much more fast paced and fill with action than the last one. It contained a lot of surprises and new elements that made it a lot more interesting.
I could absolutely identify with Sam, after everything that he has gone through, it is not surprising that he has a lack of faith in humanity, and even the angels.
I also ...more
I really feel for Sam and the horrible position he is placed in. I care about him!!
and even though he is a half demon/half human and it is an apocalyptic setting ... I think most of us can relate to the dilemma of trying to find out where we fit in and finding our place in a complicated and sometimes unfair world.. I think that is the genius ...more
This subject matter was hard for me to read and courageous for the author to write about. I sincerely didn't know much about what would happen if The Rapture would really take place and the author did an amazing job at telling the story. The writing was very well done. As other reviewers noted, I agree that Sam needed a companion so that there would have been more dialogue, and the cliffhanger about made me want to throw m ...more
I'd certainly re ...more
A good read.
I felt even though there was a lot of action, it was really slow building especially as Sam travels across country.
Not quite sure how I felt about Samyaza taking Sam to Heaven. I thought he would do things that would benefit him. Don't see how this does. We're left at a sort of cliffhanger. Is the AntiChrist or the Prophet still alive? ... Will have to read the next book to find out! ...more
