Item description for Darkening Skies: Judgment of Ice (Left Behind: The Kids) by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye...
Overview Judd and Lionel entrust their safety to the son of a Global Community officer, while Vicki and the others in the Young Trib Force search to find Melinda before she can turn them in.
Publishers Description With over seven million copies sold in the series, Left Behind: The Kids is a favorite of kids aged 10-14. The series follows teens that were "left behind," and they have nothing left but their newfound faith in Jesus Christ. Determined to stand up for God no matter what the cost, they are tested at every turn.
From Publishers Weekly In the versions of the adult Left Behind series, those "left behind" when the
true believers disappear in the Rapture include four teenagers who then find
Christ. Jenkins and LaHaye know how to maintain suspense. They deftly
cross-cut scenes and roll the action at a Gary Paulsen-like pace. While
readers don't have to share the characters' faith to enjoy these page-turners,
the appeal is definitely not universal. The "stadium" in Terror is Teddy
Kollek Stadium in Jerusalem, overflowing with "witnesses" eager to hear an
influential rabbi extol Jesus and "the triune God." An Arab helps the good
guys, not because she's found Christ but because she wants vengeance against
the bad guys (these include Nicolae Carpathia, potentate of the Global
Community, and Peter the Second, head of the Enigma Babylon One World Faith.
By Skies the story line has reached Revelation 8:12, and the sun, moon and
stars lose one-third of their light. Will the kids holed up in a remote
schoolhouse be able to power their generator? And how many people will they
save? With series sales topping 7.7 million copies, it doesn't take series
prophets Eli and Moishe to predict a ready audience for these new titles. Ages
10-14. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Darkening Skies: Judgment of Ice (Left Behind: The Kids)?
Series for adults now rewritten for teens Dec 25, 2004
I have always enjoyed the adult series of Left Behind books. The kids books are just as good. The kids interact with the characters from the adult series, experience the same events, etc. However, since the main characters are teens, these books can appeal to younger readers. So far, the stories haven't had the ups and downs that the adult series has had. The adult series has books that are a lot more boring than others. The kids series seems to be good in every book. These are not for really young kids, but would be appropriate for young teens. I enjoy them and I am an adult.
I JUST CAN'T STOP READING! Mar 27, 2002
I'm actually reading book #11, second time around, and just ordered 19, 20, 21, & 22. By the time I get 19 & 20 I'll be finished with 18 again. Incidentally, I also just ordered the adult book #10 having read all the predecessors. I just can't stop reading these books once I start. Whoever said the "kids" books were up to age 12 forgot that they speak truth to all ages. I'm 62 years old with graduate degrees and they sure do hit my hot button. I hope they just keep coming! I love them.
Left Behind #18- Great Book Jan 17, 2002
The book Left Behind #18- "Darkening Skies" is a great book. It's about four kids who were originally Left Behind of the rapture of god's people. This is book number eighteen out of thirty-six.
