The Tribulation Force hurtles toward the four murders foretold in Scriptures.

The head of Enigma Babylon One World Faith is in jeopardy, as are the two witnesses at the Wailing Wall as "the due time" approaches. Antichrist himself is prophesied to suffer a lethal head wound.

As a supernatural hoard of 200 million demonic horsemen slay a third of the remaining population, the Tribulation Force prepares for a future as fugitives. Yet another Force member dies, and others join as crises draw them around the globe.

Rayford and the newest member of the Trib Force are attacked by Global Community security guards in America...

David maintains a precarious surveillance at the GC palace in New Babylon...

Mac and his new copilot are attacked on the Condor 216 in Africa...

Hattie is imprisoned in Belgium... ( )

The first three books in the series did an excellent job of moving the plot along, while riding a delicate balance with strong character development. Then books four and five hit -- more preachy material than story or character development. Total busts, IMHO. Book six, on the other hand, jumps back to the excellent writing style of plot/character development that the first three books promised. At this point in the series, this is the best book of the six. ( )

This book was slower for me to read than the other ones thus far, however it leaves you with the biggest cliff hanger at the end, I have no choice but to immediatly dive into book 7!!

I enjoyed the story as fiction. I laughed, cried, fumed, and shouted--all positive things--but I want to temper that strongly by saying that I wouldn't suggest it as theological or eschatological material, as some have. I'm not really concerned with the order and how's of end-time events and believe we waste too much time trying to figure it out. As Jesus said: "No one knows the times or the seasons, but my heavenly Father." Do worry about it. Live and hope. You don't need to have it all marked out on a calendar.If someone were to ask me what fictional literature I would suggest, this series wouldn't occur to me at all, and I wouldn't suggest it if it did. But, seeing as I have read it (except the last one and the prequels), I felt like I ought to review it. For story, I would give it three stars, maybe four. But my reservations pull that rating down to two. ( )

Assassins takes a different approach, with a slow build-up to the inevitable assassination of the Anti-Christ. Nothing new in that, since the last few entries have held back on the titular catastrophe until the final third, however the twist this time is that the reader has no clue as to who the assassin will be - and End of Days whodunnit?!. Plenty of red herrings abound as the authors attempt (successfully) not to reveal the endgame. Where Assassins fails to deliver is with the set-pieces, usually well crafted and exciting, they feel flat due to the changes in the central characters and the two-dimensional peripheral cast. The endgame is squeezed in at the end with too much redundant narrative to get there. It's a necessary chapter, however Assassins just feels too padded out. ( )

From Apollyon

A vast network of house churches had sprung up---seemingly spontaneously---with converted Jews, clearly part of the 144.000 witnesses, taking leadership positions.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0842329277, Paperback)

Is it right to kill Satan's hit man? Would it help God's work? This installment in the Left Behind series picks up with Rayford Steele--"believer" and international fugitive--as he struggles with a plan to assassinate Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia. Meanwhile, Carpathia has been busy rebuilding roads, airports, and a cellular/solar satellite phone system--all designed to help him become supreme ruler of the world--and even claim himself to be God. We also find ace reporter Buck Williams anonymously preaching to the masses of believers and converts through his cyberspace magazine The Truth. All the believers in the safe house, including Buck, Doc, Chloe, and Tsion, are suspicious of Hattie--former mistress of Carpathia--who claims to be a believer but may have already compromised their secret location when she tried to buy her way to Europe months before.

Fans of the series won't be disappointed. Jenkins's signature writing is at full force. Readers can count on a suspenseful plot, imaginative futuristic thinking, and familiar characters, all of which appear in the opening pages and are sustained until the last cliffhanger scene when God unleashes another earth-shattering disaster.
