I am an avid reader and The Cell was certainly a book that captured my attention from the moment I started reading it. You can tell the author has researched his information thoroughly and knows what he talking about. The Cell captivates your thinking and makes you realize how close this is to becoming a reality in our culture today. I am continually amazed at writers and their ability to bring a story to life and make you want more. The Cell is a book I will reread in the future and I hope that Chris will continue this series. I can't wait to read more from Chris Hambleton! Great Work!
Years after the financial crash of 2008, America has become a nation in deep, constant crisis. Political assassinations have become commonplace, taxes continue to rise to meteoric heights, and the free market economic system so prized for hundreds of years teeters on the brink of collapse. Amidst all the chaos comes the passage of the Tolerance in Religion and Media Acts (TIRMA), which threatens to snuff out America's long-cherished freedoms of free speech and assembly - and effectively breaks the collective spirit of the nation. Despite the mass exodus of many of its citizens for freer lands, though, the country miraculously begins to witness the re-emergence of its nascent faith - but on the 10th anniversary of the passage of TIRMA, one manipulative priest may just silence the burgeoning voice of hope once and for all... Rife with religious and political intrigue and steeped in living, breathing history, The Cell: Twilight's Last Gleaming is a fascinating read. Drawn straight from the headlines of everyday events, author Chris Hambleton's frightening tale paints quite the vivid portrait of the future that awaits us all if we don't learn from the mistakes of our collective past - and fast. One has only to pay close attention to the course of events over the past 20 years of American history to realize that the bleak picture that Hambleton presents - however outlandish it may seem - is actually not that far from becoming a reality. A true student of history, Hambleton does a masterful job of providing readers with a much-needed wake-up call regarding not only the increasingly disturbing world in which we live - but also the crucial responsibility that we bear to help change it. Highly recommended. Renee Wasburn Apex Reviews
