"Apocalypse Crucible", the second book in the "Left Behind: Apocalypse" series. This series is a set of (mostly) wartime military thrillers that takes a different look at the end-times troubles, as portrayed in the "Left Behind" series (by LaHaye and Jenkins). It mixes a LOT of military war machine details (vocabulary, acronyms, weapons, etc.) with the sudden unexplainable (to most people) disappearances which actually signal the Rapture and the beginning of the End Times Tribulations period.

Vastly superior to the novels that inspired it, the fabulous Apocalypse series continues in this second volume with plenty of action, drama, and intensity. If you read the first book, you should definitely read this one as well!

I'm enjoying this series even more than I did the original Left Behind series. The characters and different scenarios are engaging and riveting. I can't wait to start the next in the series. The narrator was outstanding!

It is ok...debating to get the next one or not. It is no Left Behind, but it is ok.

Exceptional story line. Good transitioning between characters in different locations. Action but also exploration of faith.

As a reader of the Left Behind series and the first book in the Apocalypse series, I felt this one fit in fairly well with the Rapture as originally portrayed by LaHaye/Jenkins. I don't think Odom builds as strong of characters as LaHaye/Jenkins did, but he does manage to bring forth the trials and tribulations of "Goose" Gander and his wife Megan as they struggle to survive in a post-Rapture world. The side story of naval chaplain Delroy Harte's struggles makes for compelling reading as well. T ...more

A lot of military jargon, but a good read. "...when Satan lies to you, it's gonna be when you most want to believe him. Nothin' he's gonna tell you ever gonna be the truth. See, he weaves lies outta your own hopes, fears, an' dreams, outta what you think you saw an' what you think you want to see. That's how he works. That's how he always works"
