From a miraculous conception to his meteoric rise to power, the lead male character is quietly ruthless and most of the time, careful to hide the evil within from the people surrounding him.He claims to be working for world peace, but is he really? Why is he bringing together such a disparate collection of individuals? Who is the voice that is talking to people, commanding them?
Once again, I tried to expand my reading "boundaries." Unfortunately, I was not successful this time. The story is well written, and also seemed to be well edited. Without a doubt, the author was meticulous in her research and knowledgeable of her subject as she wove her story. Her characters were believable as was the plot. I was simply unable to connect to either the story or the characters. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

There were numerous characters who were in a trance or brainwashed to do what was required of Operation Dark Angel commands, unaware of the voice and happenings. You have to decide if the voice is good or evil. Yet it is a well-crafted novel that divinely captures futuristic events based on the book of Revelation to be revealed to which the mind can visually grasp as if the scenes are playing like a cinematic film.
This is an apocalyptic thriller with some slight similarities to "Left Behind" and "Omega Code" but definitely kept my interest to read each page and intrigued to read the next book in the apocalypse series. I also know that God has her on a similar path as myself to write "Miss the Mark Series" such a futuristic story yet seems so present and lifelike.
You will not be disappointed since there will be a character that you can relate to, or feel, or been in their shoes. Moreover, I feel it has enough dose of the Word, or biblical insight in reference to the apocalypse and tribulation as well as suspense, touch of mystery, and definitely the thriller element. The scriptures line up to what is happening in the book, and the mystery is revealed for all to see. Then, you see greed versus need; those who live for selfish reasons will always watch their back, look over their shoulder nervously, or ready to knock down the next man in their way--but working for Nicolaitanes, seems like the next is ready to aim and fire after listening to the deceptive lies of Satan in the flesh (and by the voice of ambiguity). I am blessed to read this literature and anticipating to read the next one in the series soon: The World at War.
My favorite character seems to be Halle but doesn't have much of an appearance as others. Just something about her, can't put my finger on it, but just do. She's that babe in Christ (new believer) that wants to get deeper in the Lord by asking her pastor numerous questions and connect the dots. But she does later hear from the Lord and follows the direction he's leading her. Ironically, seems like my life in the last year or so. Favorite secret code: "Jesus is the way and the life. None can come to the Father except through Him."

Adrienna Turner, God is in the Equation
There’s lots of chaos in this novel, with corrupt politics joining force with corrupted military might. But there’s plenty of faith too, and various scenes depict detailed explanations of faith to others---why we believe, what we believe, how to be saved and more. Some of those others will be saved by well-used argument. The rest await their fate.
“President of several clubs and valedictorian of his graduating class,” the ill-born Italian Nicolaitanes offers a unified world religion (much like Unitarianism), becomes President of Italy, and guides the path to World War III. Meanwhile a US pastor proclaims, “The crime rate is skyrocketing through the roof, the amount of natural disasters is increasing in amount and intensity, homosexuality is on the rise, our children are becoming desensitized to the world around them...” and the US media wonders whatever happened to freedom of religion.
It’s a heady mix, offering a long slow read (only the first part of the tale), with a world-spanning plot well-crafted for those who share its end-times worldview.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to learn when this was free and I offer my honest review.
This is a must buy book and you are going to love it for sure. Very well written, thanks to the writer.
