    exciting faith based supernatural thriller

    A Fantastic Sequel

    This is bk 2 of M. A. Olsen's series, though I don't know if it'll be the last. I hope not. The first bk is great, but the 2nd bk. takes the excitement and thrills to new heights.
    The other review pretty well covers the storyline, so I'll try to add onto her remarks here.
    The second book ups the elements of danger and suspense. In bk one the Watchers themselves were being targeted for annihilation by an organization of demon guided assiassins who have a world wide reach. So, noplace for the Watchers to really hide. In bk 2, we're talking about the eastern seaboard of the US, so a LOT more lives are at stake here.
    Also, the Watchers are revealed as 1/2 of a force that opens the door for the other 1/2 to appear: the Warriors. That's what drove me nuts about bk 1, I was always wondering: why don't the Watchers fight back???!!! That question is answered in #2: that wasn't what they were for.
    What I really love about Olson's 2 bk.s is that aside from making you read his works on the edge of your seat, he really makes visible and tangible the spiritual world, which we often (wrongly) tend to view as intangible. He also shows us in a very pictoral, if not "physical" description the very real power of prayer and spiritual forces vieing against each other in a world that while invisible, is as present as the air we breathe. It's shown as a part of reality that hangs behind a "veil" so to speak, and is ripped from concealment in these books. And it shows both the power and the potential danger that lurks in this facet of reality and how we can be part of the fight against its evil elements, aka demonic forces and those under their influence, if not outright control.
    Abby and the other characters are complex, believable in their humanity, struggles and limitations and their faith is something that a lot of people can relate to, both in their waverings and victories. These are characters that are both like us, as well as people we can want to be like, which makes for an unusual twist.
    The plot is grand scale, so this book will NOT bore you. It has adventure, suspense, a little romance and faith battles that you will love and will get your pulse going. There are enough twists, turns and shocking revelations that will keep you guessing. It's not a predicatble book, so don't worry about that.
    If you like this book, read the first, and with me, hope for a third installment. Please M. A. Olsen, keep this series going! :)

    PS Be sure to check out my "recommended" list for other great books of the spiritual genre. One series also takes place in our world, the other, in another world. But they both are great. Check them out!

    Exciting Sequel

    Glad to see Abby and Dylan back again. This was another thriller with a great spiritual backbone. I enjoyed reading about some of the early Protestants as well as seeing this spiritual duo matching wits with terrorists,. Very suspenseful ending!
