    Great Christian Science Fiction read

    Trackers is Kathryn Mackel¿s second book in the Birthrighters Project. The young men and women sent out from the ark below the ice in Outriders, continue their responsibilities of gathering species from God¿s original creation amidst a world filled with warlords, mutants and now an ancient evil. But not only must they fight against this evil, they must struggle with their own desires¿ desires that could destroy their mission and leave them exposed. Tracker Timothy manipulates the others, convincing Niki and a rook to enter Baron Alrod¿s palace in order to retrieve the secretive shroud, when his real intentions are to rescue Dawnray, the woman the baron has taken for his ¿lolly.¿ The rook, Anastasia, discovers a young man indentured to the sorcerer Ghedo, who dreams of good though knows only evil. While Timothy¿s group penetrates the palace, Brady and his crew work to save a small village against the darkest evil they¿ve faced yet. Brady must accomplish this while learning to trust Ajoba to be obedient. A new twist in Trackers is that Ghedo must face his own worst fear¿being unseated by a more powerful sorcerer. The novel is filled with graphic images of a world gone wrong. With each character Mackel takes great care to delve into their deepest desires and weakness, but views them from the light of the Cross. I enjoy the creativity of this author because I never know what will happen next. Though the darkness is the blackest of evils, Mackel relies on the brightest of Lights to dispel it, something I¿d love to see in more novels. The redemptive value of the story deeply blessed me.

    I Want More!

    You¿re going to be disappointed if you read the first 2 books in this series. You might notice that I gave both of these books 5 star ratings and wonder why I¿d say this. Well, WestBow Press, at the time I write this, has elected to not publish the 3rd and final book in this series. You¿re going to be disappointed in the light that Outriders and Trackers are so good that you¿ll feel a certain emptiness knowing that book 3 is unlikely (not impossible) to be forthcoming. I love the post apocalyptic sub-genre of mainstream science fiction as well as Christian science fiction in general and this series falls into both of those categories. It exceeded my expectations in terms of plot and character development to the extent that I¿ve actually caught myself daydreaming about the story. Off hand I can only recall a couple of stories that have had that effect on me, ¿The Stand¿ by Steven King, and ¿The Time Machine¿ by H. G. Wells. ¿Outriders¿ and ¿Trackers¿ are definitely well worth reading even knowing that the story may never be finished.
