Three major cities across the globe are hit with major explosions, killing thousands. Unlike the usual terrorist attacks, no one has stepped forward to claim responsibility. One man, Jack Haines, comes to believe he was protected by God during the explosion in his hometown that claimed the lives of his wife and two of his children. As he tries to move forward he meets others who were involved in the other explosions in Los Angeles and London who also had miraculous experiences. He thinks it’s more than a coincidence, and as he learns what is really happening he is pulled into a centuries-old battle between good and evil.
While this book starts with lots of action and drama, I have to admit it didn’t quite pull me in right away. As all the characters are introduced, we really have no knowledge of what is really happening… much like the main characters. That was a bit frustrating for me. Further into the book, as we learn more about the characters, I started to get hooked and had a hard time putting the book down. It’s a pretty fast-paced novel, with some twists and turns, and some pretty evil bad guys.
The focus is on the spiritual side of our world. Angels and demons, good and evil. There is a great emphasis on the power of prayer throughout the novel, as both people and angels are found praying many times for different reasons.
