Years ago I read books 1-8 in this series. It started off pretty good (even though I completely disagree with LaHaye's strict premellinialist end-times theology), but then it seemed to go downhill. The Mark was the final book for me - I never bothered with the remaining books. What was originally said to be a 7-part series changed somewhere along the line to a 12 part series. In the first 3 or 4 books there is decent character development, but that later gives way to an emphasis on action. The last couple books I read seemed thin on character development. A new character would be introduced, and then suddenly killed off in the next book in some climactic fashion - as the reader, I felt little attachment to the characters they would create just to kill off shortly thereafter. I got frustrated with the series, and stopped waiting for the next book's release. ( )

Book description
His Excellency Global Community Potentate Nicolae Carpathia is back, this time as Satan. Resurrected and indwelt by the devil himself, the beast tightens his grip as ruler of the world. Terror comes to believers in Greece as they are among the first to face a GC loyalty mark application site. The gloves are off, as the forces of good and evil begin a battle for the very souls of men and women around the globe. A repackage of the eighth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0842332286, Paperback)

It's the dawn of the Great Tribulation, "the bloodiest season in the history of the world." After lying in state for three days, Nicolae Carpathia has risen from the dead. As the world responds in awe, statues of the potentate and "god" are erected in every major city, and a new religion, "Carpathianism," is in full swing. Followers of the antichrist are branded with a loyalty mark on their right hands or their foreheads, and "vaccinated" with a biochip embedded with personal information. Those who refuse the mark take a one-way trip to the guillotine. The second coming of Christ is only three-and-one-half years away. But can the Tribulation Force hang on?

"The God who calls you to the ultimate sacrifice will also give you the power to endure it. No one can receive the mark of the beast by accident. It is a once-and-for-all decision that will forever condemn you to eternity without God," writes Tsion Ben-Judah in his daily newsletter with its cyberaudience of more than a billion. Heavenly power may be the only hope for the Tribulation Force, as it struggles to survive amidst new terrors, the death of more loved ones, and some unexpected twists in its plans.

The Mark: The Beast Rules the World is the eighth installment in the blockbuster Left Behind series. Rich in dialogue, this action-packed thriller delivers the same consistent mix of apocalyptic mayhem and quirky humor readers have come to expect from the pen of Jerry Jenkins and the prophetic interpretations of Tim LaHaye. --Cindy Crosby
