Overview

Myers, Peretti, Hunt, and Gansky Offer Latest Harbingers Volume

Cycle Three of the Harbingers series offers more suspense, more chills, and a deeper look into the battle for light in a growing darkness.

In Myers's "Leviathan," the team heads to Hollywood for a taping of the new TV pilot, Live or Die, the Ultimate Reality. Little do they realize the depths of darkness they are about to enter—a darkness that, unless they stop it, will soon spread across the globe.

Frank Peretti's "The Mind Pirates" offers a rousing story featuring bizarre visions and memories of a murder, a kidnapping by 17th-century pirates, and an earring with mysterious powers. The team must overcome the ruthless scheming of an evil, hidden nemesis.

In "Hybrids" from Angela Hunt, the sight of two children chills the team to their bones. Seeking rest and relaxation, the four friends must instead find answers to the arrival and mission of two mysterious black-eyed children.

In "The Village" from Alton Gansky, a visit to a guarded and secretive small town in North Carolina becomes the most challenging mystery they've ever faced—as they race to solve a problem they barely understand before time runs out.

Brenda, Andi, Tank, the Professor, and Daniel are back for four more adventures together- off of which are circled around, as in the first two books, The Gate. First we go to L.A. for the filming of a new T.V. show and find towers emanating some brainwave to bring out peoples anger and violent side. Then we board a pirate ship, with everyday items like earrings, transmitting visuals to someone somewhere else as though they are viewing it through the eyes of the person there. We then encounter strange kids with inky black eyes. Andi's pregnant neighbor's unborn baby is taken, but her amniotic sac is still intact inside of her. Andi ends up finding the baby in a field. The professor makes a strange disappearance here as well, a funeral is held with no body. We finish up with our team, minus the professor, disappear from a small town diner and into Little foot's world. Turns out, this was happening a lot. They are aging rapidly, can the team figure out how to get home before they die of old age? All three books in this series are available, all published by Bethany House. This is a fanominal Christian Sci-Fi series! Available December 5, 2017 Bethany House

When I saw this book up for review, I jumped at the chance simply because I know Frank Peretti from This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. Anyone that enjoyed books on the supernatural and, specifically, the warring between angels and demons, would enjoy those two books. This was why I was interested in the Harbringers Series. Let me say right now that it would be best to start from the beginning. I missed the first two and am reviewing the third. Though the stories can be read as a standalone, it would be nice to read from the start so as to get a better sense and introduction of the characters and their relationship to each other. So let that be a warning to any new readers out there: you'll probably want to start with the first in the series. Still, it didn't detract from the story. And though I wanted to read it for Peretti's story, I found that I enjoyed all of them. I think these books would be great for Middle to High Schools, as well as adult reading. The characters range: The Professor, who ends up taking an almost father figure role to the group. Andi, the book-smart girl whose wit develops thanks to Brenda. Brenda, the street-smart chick with a side of snark (loved her) and her adopted son, Daniel, who can see otherworldly creatures, and then Tank, the emotionally stable, highly supportive strong, but not necessarily silent type guy that doesn't mind showing a bit of tenderness when the need calls for it. Someone has sent this unlikely group to various locations in the last few books, and each time they experienced extraordinary and frightful things. Each time, they discover the involvement of one sinister organization, The Gate. There's nothing really too scary or gross in the stories, and no bad language either. While one of the characters is a Christian, the others in the group aren't, so readers that prefer fiction that doesn't preach to them will be safe with these stories. Of the four stories, I think my favorite came down to Hybrids and The Village, though I ended up liking The Village the best. Hybrids had black-eyed creepy kids. The Village had warnings of "don't go out at night" and "don't even look out windows". Spooky. Readers Middle school and up will enjoy these stories. I recommended this books (the entire series) as a fun read for fans of SciFi and thrillers. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

My favorite author Quartet has done it again! Eerie, plot twisting, humorous, absolute fun to read novel about the supernatural. This is book three (I would recommend reading the first two in this series first) in the Harbingers series, it starts off "bumpy" literally, and scary. The four authors harmonize their writing for each chapter, but write each story separately from each of the character's point of view, interweaving their story lines, into a smooth continuation in each chapter. The characters are delightful and funny, and you never know whats "around the corner" with the plot. Their writing styles fit together like LEGO blocks, forming a wonderful read. I think you will enjoy this series, and I highly recommend it to those who like suspense, mystery, supernatural thrillers, or who have been a fan of each of the four authors, Bill Myers, or Frank Peretti, or Angela Hunt, or Alton Gansky as I have been for many years. I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review, and honestly, I can say this series is a great read, hope this series continues because I can't wait for the next one.

Review for Probing, The first story had me on the edge of my seat. It was action packed and thought provoking at the same time. What would happen when we lose our inhibitions? Is it possible to alter our thought process so that we would support a fight to the death? The statistics around the research of violence in media and violence in real life was frightening. The second story was harder for me to get into. I just wasn't following the pirate theme. The third story about the two children with black eyes was chilling. We also lose a member of the team in this story. The fourth story was Tank’s and we got to revisit with Helsa. The gang is in a small town in South Carolina when more strange things occur. Tank is one of my favorite characters with his strong faith and his struggle with his ability to heal but only sometimes. I also feel that he needs someone who cares about him. I am hoping the series continues as there are still tons of questions. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review.

Stranger things are yet to come... The Harbingers has been quite a series so far. Each novella has been a supernatural ride into the unbelievable. While Probing wasn't quite as creepy as the previous cycles it was certainly stranger. Just read the back cover blurb and you'll see what I mean, reality TV that may be a little too real, pirates with some secrets hidden up their billowing sleeves, children that may not be children at all, and a small town hiding something so frightening no one would ever believe it. Supernatural suspense was a fairly new term for me. I've read several of Frank Peretti's and Bill Myers's previous books that were somewhat similar but it's only recently that I've seen that term applied as its own genre. But it's a genre that I'm starting to enjoy. Some changes were in store for the characters in Probing and I'm curious to find out how that will affect them in the cycles to come. At any rate, if you love spooky supernatural stories with a definite Christian bent you really should check out this book, and series, from the talented pens of Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky. (I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)

If you are looking for a clean, adventure-packed series to read, the Harbingers is a great one. Probing written by best-selling authors Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky is the third in this series. Like the first two books in the series, Probing is four stories in one book, with each story by a different author. It is written to be kind of like an ongoing television series. Probing features the same team of four that were in the first two novels: Brenda the former tattoo artist with visions of the future; The Professor who is an athiest ex-priest; Andi the geeky Professor's assistant, and Tank the big-hearted former football player with a gift for healing. Probing starts with Myers' story called Leviathan where the team of four is invited to watch the pilot of a new realty show called, Live or Die: The Ultimate Reality. The second story, The Mind Pirates, features Peretti's mystery of an earring that Andi discovers has mysterious powers. The third story, The Hybrids, written by Hunt tells of the arrival of mysterious black-eyed children and a baby that disappears. The final story from Gansky is The Village. In this story, the team discovers a mystery in a small North Carolina town where they must solve a problem to help themselves and the whole town. I am already looking forward to the next installment in the Harbingers after Probing. I think this series has only gotten better and better. I am invested in the characters and I genuinely like them all. There are some cliffhangers from this book that have left me wondering what will happen next. I find the storylines fascinating, although I admit I don't read a lot of books in this genre. My only complaint is that like many series, I have to wait for the next book when I REALLY want to read it now. If you have not read this series yet, the first book is Invitation, followed by The Assault. I highly recommend it. It would be best to start at the beginning although I don't think they would have to be read in order to be interesting. I received Probing from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.

Probing is the third in the series of Christian books. You have a group of four strangers that met up and found they each have a special gift. When I say gift I mean Supernatural gift. In this series the first story is about reality and boy howdy does it. Become real. Where it is real is just as important. In the second story it is the team on vacation when they see a special ship and this ship is very different y'all, in more than one way. How you may ask? Well I'll tell you... You have to read the book. The Third put the team at Andyi's grandparents when two children that have something very special about them show up. They cause this story to make you have Goosebumps and to have Goosebumps on top of Goosebumps. In the Fourth story the team goes to South Carolina and the town is trying to get rid of them, when I say get rid of them I mean permanently get rid of them, but with GOD on their side who do you think is going to win? This one has a great straight on mystery. This book is good, better, best if You catch my drift. The LORD knows exactly what HE is doing. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
