I didn’t dislike this. Parts were quite exciting, but it is probably a bit past its prime now. Would have been big somewhere between This Present Darkness and the Left Behind series. A bit cheesy by today’s standards (particularly the audio book version). Even so, it kept my interest and I will read (or listen to) the last book in the series.

Last Days

Set in current days, end times events happen in a small town. Thought-provoking. Author uses since license, but remains biblical.
Neurobiology. Quantum physics. Parapsychology. Bible.

Who would have thought that these things would come together in one book? While this is the second book in the Fire of Heaven Trilogy, I have read that it does not have anything to do with the first installment, and that the story stands on its own, which is a good thing (since I doubt it will be an easy job to successfully find the first book).

The first few pages might not be so interesting, but as the novel goes on, readers would be drawn to

I'm gonna be honest: this book was VERY hard to get into. For about the first third of it the plot was extremely slow and on several occasions I almost gave up. And I rarely give up on books. In fact I took a short break (only a day) to read a different book just because I felt like I was getting into a major reading rut and I needed something fresh and quick. But when I came back to it the action finally started to pick up. In fact the last few chapters were so riveting that I found myself read ...more

Kwam er per toeval achter dat dit het tweede deel is, maar goed deel 1. heb ik nou thuis en deel 3. ook. Voor een tweede deel niet slecht, het is echt een spiritueel, paranormale thriller. Het gaat over Brandon Martus die over paranormale gaven bezit. Hij heeft voorspellende dromen, maar zelf is hij er een beetje sceptisch over. Als hij wordt benaderd door een instituut die paranormale gaven onderzoekt besluit hij mee te werken. Zijn opdracht is om te kijken of hij in contact kan komen met zijn ...more

Loved this book. Wanted to start with the first book in the trilogy ("Blood of Heaven"), but wasn't able to get it. This is the second book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters and storyline are well developed. I am a big fan of Bill Myers' books. I haven't been disappointed yet with anything I've read by him. My sons thoroughly enjoyed his youth and YA books throughout their growing up years. I highly recommend anything -- books and movies -- by Bill Myers.

There wasn't anything about the writing or the story to slow me down - I raced through this book. It helped that I read the author's notes first, to understand that he left some aspects vague on purpose. That made it better, less open to critical review, as the story deals with controversial topics.

Who knew right? Paranormal, neuroscience & faith in god, all in one book? It started off slow & I even thought it was a pseudo-intellect's version of imitating the da vinci code & psychological thrillers but as the story progressed, the intensity grew too. And it was amazing!

This book felt like half of it should have been in Fire of Heaven and the other half in Blood of Heaven. All the same, an interesting read and preparation for the third book in the series.

Really interesting insight into the demonic realm!

The second book in the Fire of Heaven trilogy. It doesn't really tie in with book 1 though. Troubled Brandon and scientist Sarah learn their roles as future prophets.

Another great book

I just finished this second book in the series and now I'm off to the next. This series are a definite read if you're love Christian fiction. :)

Ironically, at the University his worst subject was writing. He claims to have prayed, and said that he would be able to do anything for God, except write. Even so, he has become a prominent Christian writer, and has a large ...more

“There are two types of faith, child. Earthly faith and heavenly. The earthly faith, that don’t mean a thing. It’s just man-made, just a way to try to make the good Lord do what you want him to.” Her eyes fell back on him. “But there’s another type. The type that surrenders to his will. Completely. And once it learns what that will is, it speaks it into existence. And that type of faith, anyone can have.” 0 likes
