About the Book

A psychological thriller with a Christian world view

Review

This is a psychological thriller with a wonderful twist. While we get a vivid picture of the psychological character of the killer; we get an even better look at the spiritual fight that goes on around us all the time. Other characters in the story are very well developed too, so we get a look into the lives of some saints who are prayer warriors and have discernment, which makes them fearless and lovable. I listened to this all day and begrudged taking the time to eat a bite at 4p.m. The narrator does a fantastic job. the writer is gifted and thorough. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys thrillers and anyone who doesn’t usually like the genre – like me – but loves a well written book or enjoys seeing christians portrayed as they really are. There is more than one character study in this book and one lady stands out as a kindred spirit for me.

About the Book

In this prequel to Times of Trouble and Times of Trial, we follow how the Evans family gained their riches and eventually their power to influence events in the United States. We see important events that the Evans family gets themselves involved in: such as the return of the Israelites to Israel, the assassination of President Kennedy, the terrorism of 9/11, and eventually events that lead to government tyranny in the United States with the sole purpose of destroying Christianity and its influence in the United States.

Review

From the first chapter I couldn’t stop reading! Meet the Evans family, starting with Gregory. They are the evil behind so many world happenings, manipulating events to pursue their goals. The Atwoods were strong in their beliefs,at times unknowingly becoming victims to the Evans family. So many true events were in this book that it almost felt like reading an account of world news. Even though I kept telling myself it is only a work of fiction, I kept wondering if the author had some “inside information” and Gregory Evans was a pseudonym for someone real. I am grateful the author allowed me to read and review this book! I am now a fan of this series and will definitely be buying the rest!

About the Book

This is a book 1 of a very believable end times saga. There are enough real events included to make the story seem even more real.

Review

This was a very good story filled with historical events that were manipulated by one man. It was so believable that it made me wonder if it could really have happened that way. Is it truth or fiction? How could anyone be that cold hearted? At first it was like reading a history book but it kept drawing me in and wondering what was going to happen next. It kept getting better and better. I couldn’t stop reading it. This was a really great read and I hated to see it end.

In this prequel to Times of Trouble and Times of Trial, we learn the back story of how the Evans family gained their riches and eventually their power to influence events in the United States and elsewhere in the world. We see important events that the Evans family gets themselves involved in: such as the return of the Israelites to Israel, the assassination of President Kennedy, the Iran Hostage Affair, the terrorism of 9/11, and eventually events that leads to government tyranny in the United States all to dilute the influence of Christianity in the country.

The novel also follows the Atwood family, starting with the Great-Grandfather of Brian, Charles. We follow him as he makes his way from Normandy in World War Two to being part of the liberation of Buchenwald, the Nazi Concentration Camp, shortly near the end of the war. Charles returns to his hometown in Virginia and gets married to the love of his life, Betty. Eventually, the family ends up in Delaney, Nebraska, when Tom Atwood, the son of Charles, buys some land after returning from Vietnam. In 2001, Aaron, the father of Brian, joins the Army to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. About six years before the beginning of Times of Trouble, we get to see how Brian and Lynda finally get together and get married.
