For the past three years, Trez Sleighton and his fellow followers, dubbed the JCSC, have been hidden away in the secret army complex dug into the rocky mountainside at Shaleford in Colorado. Over this time and following the great Rapture, this massing body of survivors has waited out the years, whilst the world outside of their protective hideout continued to run scared from the chaos and madness that had erupted since the Anti-Christ, in the form of Samouel Gallo, began upon his mission for world domination.
But there was only so long that Trez could sit and wait it out in the relative security of the inner-mountain facility. And finally the time had come for him to set in motion the next stage in their plans to counteract the destructive path of Gallo and his hellbound followers.
For the first time since the inner-circle of friends first convened in Shaleford, the core members must now split - with Trez Sleighton, Netti Banks, Roxi Parks and her half-angel husband Aeris (along with their new son Michael) leaving Colorado and flying to Jerusalem with the help of the former spy, Jessit, and his onside contact M. Their hopeful mission to stop the once movie-star and now world leader, Samouel Gallo, in his rallying of a monumental army of death, whilst relocating their entire headquarters to the ancient city of Petra in Jordan.Read more ›

One thing, though, confused me.
What happened to Lee? You know, the guy who was married to Lindsey?
Book Two she's married to somebody named Eric.
Other than that...can't wait for the third book to come out.
First the book. Either outstandingly written, or dependent too much upon cliche. What do I mean by that? Well Tris, Gene, Roxi,Rick and the rest of the core group were wonderfully portrayed. These are people who could have stepped out of the pages of that novel and settled in the vacant house next door and you wouldn't have noticed the difference. The villains, however were just a bit too cookie cutter evil. I almost expected Samouel Gallo to twirl his mustache a couple of times as he flings back his black cape and chuckles, "nya-ah-ah" as he ties up the damsel in distress and lays her before the coming train. These faulty characters and one other reason was why I rated this book a four (I sure wish I could rate it a 4.5, because it really is a good book but alas, the rating program is what it is). And the final reason for the discount, Mr. Prescott continued his rather unpleasant, rather distorted hatred of the Catholic Church in this book. I am a Presbyterian and not devoted to the Papal See, but I can say that of the last four Popes, at least four of them were godly men whom I expect to meet in Heaven someday, each wearing a crown of glory. Werewolves and vampires aside, this book otherwise provided a fairly lucid imagining of what the Great Tribulation is going to be like. If there is a rapture before such events (and I doubt personally regarding such an occurrance happening before Jesus returns), it is good, because Mr. Prescott got at least this right; as pictured in Revelation it will be a very, very ugly time.
And here's a thought in support of Futurism; if humans are going to unite behind an AntiChrist and his tyrranical ways the only thing that will give us the willpower to do so as cantankerous as humans are, is this: an ecological collapse followed by an economic collapse; and what do you know, Revelation gives us indications of both in its pages.
Finally, there is a scene that I particularly, well, enjoyed is not quite the right word, but it was so well written, so vivid and so heart-breaking that I nearly wept out loud. For that scene alone involving Tris, Roxi, Aeris and one other member of the core group, I give Mr. Prescott my promise that I will read the next volume in this trilogy. It alone established the bona fides of this trilogy. Thank you, Mr. Prescott, for breaking my heart. It added a certain depth to this story that otherwise would have felt shallow.
Should you read this book? If you have read the first one, yes. If not, get your south end in gear, read PRAY and then read this novel. It's worth the time and effort, despite its few disappointments.
Hugely better than Pray! I was glad I picked it up.
For me personally, I am not one of the "The Catholic Church" is the Antichrist / Whore of Babylon etc brigade, a la Ellen G. White etc. So that part was a bit of a let down for me to read. If you are a fan of "Chick" pubs, you'll love it.
And I am left scratching my head how the antichrist and his prophet are going to be left with any followers. They sure aren't endearing themselves to the people by their antics. But he is one angry devil and the character is really exactly what I expect him to be like - hating Jesus and anything to do with Him.
Looking forward to the next book: Can't imagine what is going to fill the next 3.5 yrs. It has already been pretty nasty. Lots of surprises in store I bet! All I can say is that John Prescott must have had a lot of fun writing this!
