About the Author

Lee has been teaching the Bible for over 35 years. He and his wife live in Harvey, ND where he preaches twice a month at Harvey Gospel Chapel. They have four children --- three of whom are married --- and ten grandchildren. His areas of interest include the Bible languages, Bible prophecy, apologetics, ancient history, catastrophism, and electric universe cosmology. His hobbies, which he rarely finds time for, are backpacking and mountain climbing. He finds enjoyment in the simple pleasures of life --- conversation with friends, coffee, dark chocolate, mountains, the bugle of a bull elk, the call of the loon, the smell of lilacs in the spring, sunrises and sunsets, and northern lights.

I want to thank Lee Brainard for this very insightful look into the in-depth Bible prophesy and the end of times. Great novel, with Bible/prophesy truth imbedded to help to understand how we are now living in the last days.

The Rogue Is Biblicly exciting, how is it? Well that is one thing you have to find out for yourself. It is also suspenseful and prophetic. There is a lot of astronomy terms and I love it because my father brought me up on it and to appreciate it - you will find it so as well. There is secrets to be had more like a cover up. How very sad. Will it stay that way or will it come out about the Rogue comet? It also comes out with a meaning for the whole book which is - - - nah you have to find out for yourself - it's more fun that way. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all of the opinions expressed in this review are all my own. if you would like to read more of my Christian book reviews go to christianlybookreviewers.blogspot.com

I received a free copy of The Rogue by Lee W. Brainard in exchange for an honest review. In this novel, the fate of the planet is endangered by remnants of Planet X, which the scientist speculate was destroyed by colliding into another planet millennia ago. The government seeks to control the information and imprisons everyone who speaks out in internment camps. Despite this, several of the characters risk their freedom to get the information to the public. The book primarily follows three scientists as they individually learn of the possible catastrophe and determine their reaction to the news in the context of extreme governmental censorship. This appears to be the first in a series because the novel ended before anything was resolved. The underlying themes explore how long-held scientific beliefs can become a religion, how giving away your rights in the name of security can lead to abuses of power, faith in the face of adversity, and how the “right thing” is never situational no matter the emotions or the consequences at the time. The book is based on a verse from Luke and does not explore Revelation, so don’t expect the rapture or the tribulation to make an appearance in this book. #TheRogue #NetGalley

I have to do this backward. I LOVED this book. This book is definitely Top 10 for me this year. Yes I know it’s only a 4 star rating which seems a bit backward but… Here’s the total truth. There is two reasons for the rating I gave it, yet a million reasons for why it’s a Top 10. The truth is the absolute abuse (OK perhaps overkill is a better choice) of ellipses. Words … more words … and a whole paragraph goes by like that. 15-20 pages later another paragraph like that. I mean it wasn’t as if they were used incorrectly per se but they drove me absolutely batty. Secondly, the technical. Oh, for the love of gravy I haven’t read anything so technical, probably ever. Here’s the deal though, it was overly technical and throwing out all the acronyms that make up government agencies that I can never remember what they stand for and what they mean and the physics and math and … there was a LOT of technical. Here’s the secret though, while I go so bogged down in all of that it actually enhanced the story and I don’t think the book would have been as great without it. Even though I was sinking in the bog of stuffs. There’s something about apocalyptic fiction that draws me in and makes me need to read it. There’s something to be said about astronomy and the heavens that draws me in. The idea that there are things out there that I can’t begin to understand interests me. I can’t imagine having the knowledge and education and technical understanding to be in Irina or Ariele’s shoes. I’ll never have that, heck I didn’t even truly understand any of the depth and technical aspects of the book. I didn’t need to though. I do know that I saw too much in what is happening in our world society in this book. I do know that there is not one scenario that came up in this book that did not feel real. I do know that sometimes I’m scared that this is not science fiction but is a realistic vision of reality. I do know that Biblical prophecy is real and while I don’t know how or when it will happen I do know that it will happen. I do know that I’m on the right side of that scenario but I also know that knowledge doesn’t make it any less scary. This book sets a stage of a potential threat from space, a rogue planet or oversized comet, something that potentially could wipe out civilization as we know it on a good chunk of the planet. This book takes things that have legitimately happened in the course of history and provides a plausible explanation that correlates to this impending scenario. With a discovery of this magnitude government steps in, takes over, shuts down research and reexplains it as something that wouldn’t be end of the world. FEMA camps, NASA taking over all public and private telescopes (the big research ones), the FBI delving into things that aren’t normally part of it’s scope, targeting ‘preppers’ as potential domestic terrorists. Any of this starting to sound familiar? These things are happening. Does that mean that The Rogue in this book is based on fact? I’m not that much a conspiracy theorist. I also can understand why the government would take the steps they took in this book. I feel like it was over the top and alarmist but if there was something out there that could wipe out part of the planet what would you do? Most of us would panic. Wipe the bank, the grocery store shelves and head for somewhere we assume would be safe. Those actions would decimate society before there was a chance for an external fo
