A Review

The third book of a trilogy that illustrates the war Christians are in with the powers of darkness.  Tommy (an ex-NFL player), Reese (a relatively new believer tossed into the midst of a battle that he is only beginning to understand, Cassandra, and Dani, as well as a host of CIA, FBI, and international security agents, have their hands full as largely secret group of satanic agents attempt to corrupt a small group of teens and involve them in a plan to undermine one of the most basic necessities of life.

Having not read the earlier two novels, it took time to become familiar with the characters and the roles they played within the stories.  I do wish the author had taken a few pages to outline the pre-story that laid the foundation for Fatal Tide.  The story itself does hold the reader’s attention - primarily focused on a community just north of New York City, the story has elements that occur on every continent of the world.  Though I doubt the realism of the events described (even as a believer), the story does serve as an important reminder that there is a spiritual battle that is larger than any we can understand or see with our own eyes.  For that battle, the only victory comes when we place our faith in Jesus.  As we do that, God will provide the resources to get us through the most difficult of times.  A lesson we each need to learn.

This review is based on a free electronic copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
