Exciting Christian fiction

This is a religious novel and could be compared to early Frank Peretti. I found it to be an exciting page turner.

Pretends to be sci-fi but is just another "science = Satan" "evangelical Jesus = only valid belief". Women are either victims or doormats, and usually both. Goth kids are all criminals possessed by Satan, and apparently Satan also causes mental illness, laziness, bad weather, and UFOs! All this and bad writing and one-dimensional characters to boot.

I'm giving it one star because there isn't a lower rating. Not worth free.

    The overview makes it seem like a sci-fi book, but it ends up being nothing more than religious claptrap.  Beyond that, it's poorly written with non sequiter paranthetical additions all over the place, horrid grammar, and ridiculous characters.  Stay far far away from this one!

    More Christian propaganda

    I should have known to stop reading as soon as one of the "good guys" was a Christian preacher. If I wanted to be proselytized, I'd open the door for bible-thumpers!

    Bait and switch is right

    Standard "Devil is evil and you better pray" Christian novel - a poor story told in a mediocre way.
