Edge of Apocalypse

The End Series

by Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Zondervan from Trust Media Distribution
If you were a fan of the Left Behind series then youíre probably going to enjoy the latest pseudo thriller from Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall Ė full of veiled biblical prophecies, born again believers and an unremitting battle against the powers and principalities of darkness as we head towards the end of days.
In terms of writing and story style itís a regular alphabet soup and secret spy adventure thriller, think Matthew Reilly or Tom Clancy and youíre moving in the right stylistic arena, however add in a dash of Dan Brown or David Hewson for the prophecy fulfilment angle and youíre almost but not quite there.
On the whole itís a Christian thriller that is a good way to waste a few hours if you like thrillers and end of days fiction, the writing is not the best but by far not the worst, and the story carries itself along at a decent pace Ė however beware the ending, this is obviously meant to be another long running serialisation and so I was left feeling a little cheated by the ending.
