LaHaye and Jenkins, once again have created a most interesting page-turner. The third in a series of novels that promise to line their pockets full of cash, the authors present a believable story of what the final days will be like. *Nicolae* is packed with horror derived from the book of Revelations consisting of terror, death and mass destruction. Those who believe in the Biblical teachings will be reassured in their faith; those who do not might think twice. Written from a Christian perspective, this book, at times becomes quite a sermon. Those who do not believe in, but are interested in the Apocolyptic error, will find themselves skipping sections to avoid religious tangents. Though the vocabulary of the authors reflects that they are well educated, much of their Christian rhetoric and anachronistic jargons is quite simple and annoying. However, as irritating as I have found much of the book, I could not seem to put it down. The same applied to the previous volumes! , *Left Behind* and *Tribulation Force.* Though the work is captivating, much fat can be cut from each volume, and the whole story can be condensed into one book. It appears as if the authors intend to draw the readers in and leave them with a dissapointing suspense at the end of each volume - guaranteeing a sure sale for their upcoming works. The writing is most creative, however, the authors should get to the point that they are attempting to make and close the story -- before the Rapture occurs, leaving readers with an unfinished message.
