One of the reasons I do not like the action adventure thriller type movies of today is that it contains an excessive amount of unnecessary foul language, action so extreme that it becomes makes the story line unbelievable and naked women who add nothing to the movie. Books are so much better.
“Dark Hearted”, by D. I. Telbat, is what I would consider the perfect suspense book. Continuing the activities of COIL, a team of specialized agents trained to rescue Christian missionaries from

This is the third book in this COIL series that I have read and I am loving every minute of them. I don't think I could get tried of this series or its themes of Christian special ops rescuing persecuted Christians as despite this being similar in other novels or in real life (special ops rescuing those kidnapped/captured, not necessarily due to their faith but for any reason that their captors feel they are a threat to their nefarious schemes), it is especially relevant in Christian circles as ...more

Dark Hearted, Book Two of The COIL Series , continues with the suspense that began in Book One, Dark Liaison, A Christian Suspense Novel.

COIL founder, Corban Dowler, has developed commando-style teams who use non-lethal weapons to extract threatened servants of the Lord from danger zones worldwide.

Dark Hearted, the second book in D.I. Telbat's COIL Series is just as fantastic as book one. I love the mystery and intrigue involved in this story.
We got to meet some new characters and revisit some old from book one. The descriptions of people and places are just fantastic. I love how they describe and talk about the guns.
There were only a few things in this book that I didn’t like, but hate to mention them because this book is so very interesting and full of suspense that I want everyone to

Review on my blog:

4.5 stars.

Dark Hearted was a great suspenseful read! After reading Dark Liaison last year, I was looking forward to the next installment in the COIL series, and Dark Hearted did not disappoint!

The story had a lot of action-packed moments and held my attention. I found the characters great and, while there were some sad moments, it did make the book more believable.

Overall, I

Book two in a four part series.

I literally can't seem to put it down. I read the first book a few days ago. Full of suspense it leaves you on the edge of your seat. What I like about this series is that it leaves you thinking. I've been pondering the about the many missionaries, Christians and more who are always in danger because of their faith. Definitely a good book for those who love action novels. I'll be moving on to the third book next.

This was my second read and it held my interest even more than the first time. I read it more slowly and more thoughtfully, enjoying the characters and their transparency. Their selflessness and love of the Lord truly inspired me once again. it caused me to rethink my own commitment level. Thanks , Mr. Telbat, for sharing your gift of writing with the world.

Fast paced Christian fiction

Believable yet fast action in a believable context. Each character has it's own personality and yet fits into the Christian group settings. This book is FUN and also a serious, real message for believer and nonbelievers.

Good Series but this one was a little slow for me. I hear that the 3rd book is easier read and more enjoyable but still a good read.
