“Sudden Mission” follows Paul on his journey to save the world. It’s all good troll, zombie, and alien fun until a significant character dies. From that point on the severity of the mission resonates.

My favorite parts of the book occurred in the “real” world. I was a little less interested in the role-playing chapters as the stakes didn’t feel as high. There is a high body count, and no magic reversals, but the deaths and the part the main characters played in them is handled with appropriate gr

Sudden Mission is an action packed YA Christian novel. Seriously. This is one of the most action packed Christian books for teens I have ever read. It kept me wondering just what was going to happen next.

The adversary, Satan, has set up a series of awful tribulations for humans over the entire earth. There's no shortage of aliens, zombies, plagues, and scary fog! And to top it off, one teen, with the help of his friends, has been chosen to end this.

The journey is the story, and it's more than

I received this book in return for an honest review.

Oh my gosh! this book was so awesome!
When I saw the blurb of this book, I just KNEW I had to read this book. I'm so glad that I did! It's such a wonderful story that keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more and by the grace of God, all things are possible. I loved the characters in this book and how different they are yet they go together perfectly. I loved how this book was written, everything just flowed and came together perfectly. I

I don't usually review young adult fiction, but I am willing to support new Christian authors and if I like the description, this genre is fine with me. I am glad I read Sudden Mission. This novel showcases Pace's creativity and for a debut novel, he has succeeded in crafting a fast-paced, action-filled novel that I can see why it appeals to the teen/young adult audience. Pace admits that he is geared towards writing for young adults and this novel shows that very well. I have not read many nove ...more

Sudden Mission is a YA Christian Thriller by Guy L. Pace and is his first novel in the Spirit Missions series. I'll start by saying that I don't often read Christian YA, although I read plenty of Christian adult fiction, so i'm not the target audience for this novel. What the book tries to do, it does with moderate success, but overall I feel its weaknesses kept it at a mediocre read where it should have been a good one. I'll start with a description of the story, then discuss the positives and ...more

This is an unusual YA book, which is fine. It's filled with plenty of action and excitement. Readers follow high schooler Paul and his friends Amy and Joe across the United States as they avoid all kinds of obstacles on a quest to "set things right," according to Angel Gabriel. Their challenges range from black fog and white fog to invisible domes that cover cities to zombies, four-foot aliens in flying saucers to samurais. That action keeps you going and might be enough for many YA readers.

I give Sudden Mission by Guy L. Pace 4 out of 5 stars.

When a black fog descends on Washington, D.C. and their families mysteriously disappear, Paul, Joe, and Amy’s world is turned upside down. It gets even crazier when an enigmatic man shows up and tells Paul he’s the one responsible for making it right.

From start to finish, there is never a dull moment – trolls, zombies, demonic monks, aliens, and samurais. A carefully-planned cross-country trek from North Carolina to Montana takes several unex

My friend and fellow veteran Guy Pace is an author and I recently picked up the Kindle version of his first book, Sudden Mission. I don't often read fiction and I had no idea what this book was about! I don't write many reviews either, but I thought this one was worth it.

Sudden Mission is a story about a group of teenagers on a journey across the United States to complete a mission for God. I found myself reading the book in one hand while following along the journey on Google Maps in the other.

The Adversary aka Satan is tired of waiting and decides to speed up the process, for his desire to own the souls of the men on earth. To do this he throws all that we know on earth “out of whack” and the world is chaos. Strange things begin to happen, and an angel appears with a message from God and Paul and his friends set out on an adventure that would change the course of the future for all! I loved this book, to say it was “wicked awesome” is an unders

“So the monks and the samurai all had something with the three-pronged fork symbol," Paul said as they bounced in the back of Ricky's truck. "And they all move and work in threes. So how is the Adversary tracking us?"
"You mean tracking you," Cody said, laughing. "We Indians just blend into the background, en'it?”
