Awesome Glimpse into the Supernatural May 5, 2008
Wow! Mark did it again,only better. I love Abby Sherman and her determination to do what God tells her. She listens,trusts, and moves as she is led.
Mark quickly brought me into Abby's world with a sense of urgency.I followed her all over Europe to find the answer to save the United States from a bomb that could destroy the Eastern Coastline twenty miles inland.
Mark's first hand experience of the continent comes though Abby's six senses in a remarkable way. Although she is constantly moving at a fast pace, she takes fresh notice of the beauty of the land that she is traveling through.
Much of her time is spent with Dylan as they work together,interceding for others and a call to wake up long asleep warriors to fight together in their behalf. They come in the spirit from all over the world for prayer and it is comforting to the reader to know that God has warriors watching, waiting, and battling on the behalf of those who belong to Him.
There is no call to small that the Creator doesn't hear and heed on behalf of His people.
An interesting twist, Abby belongs to a group of people called by the Lord for specific work in the Kingdom of God. Her gifts go back many generations. Her mother is also gifted and supports Abby.
I enjoyed this book and found it entertaining and informative. Although it isn't necessary to read The Watchers, you would enjoy The Warriors even more having had some insight into Abby and the way she thinks.
If there were more than five stars to give these two books, well, I would! You won't be sorry, these are great reads.
exciting faith based supernatural thriller Apr 2, 2008
Abby Sherman and Dylan Hatfield argue over the differences between spiritual and mortal combat. They are Watchers; humans who hear God's voce and can see demons and angels fighting one another. Dylan is with a black ops operation in Tora Bora; the place where Osama escaped in Tunnel Nine from the allies during the overthrow of the Taliban. The Watcher realizes he and his peers have uncovered a Principality; a demon hold on earth. He is the only one to come out alive, but those who saved his life want him dead because they are possessed.
Abby goes to Jerusalem to visit the Watcher the Sentinel who is dying but needs to deliver a message for Abby. A giant wave of destruction is going to destroy the North American eastern coast; to prevent onslaught Abby must find the summons in stone that will call forth the Warriors. Abby and Dylan meet up with both on the run while searching for the stone etching. Demon possessed American agents pursue them to prevent them from bringing the Warriors to fight the horde.
Mark Andrew Olsen is an expert at writing exciting faith based supernatural thrillers in which a chosen few are chillingly able to see the true meaning of Revelations. Most people are unaware of Watchers and the few who do rarely believe they are part of God's plan, but instead assume they are crazy religious fanatics. Whereas Abby's faith carries her through one crisis after another, Dylan's doubts make him work harder at acceptance. Readers will enjoy this couple who if successful will prevent biblical calamity.
A Relentless Thrillride Apr 1, 2008
In 2001, Osama Bin Laden slipped through the fingers of the U.S. when he disappeared in a tunnel complex in Tora Bora, Afghanistan. Seven years later Dylan Hatfield and an elite Special Forces unit is sent into the caves to try and seek out any answers that can be found. What Dylan discovers is more frightening than anything he or anyone could ever imagine.
Meanwhile, Abby Sherman has been called to Israel to meet with Sister Rulaz, a fellow Watcher also known as The Sentinel of Jerusalem. The Watchers are a global sisterhood of believers who have the unique gift of spiritual sight. While perched on the rooftops of Jerusalem, Sister Rulaz has a vision that reveals an imminent threat to the US. As Sister Rulaz takes her least breath she reveals her vision to Abby. Now Abby and Dylan must once again work together to thwart the darkness and bring God's light to the world.
Mark Andrew Olsen took my breath away with the pulse-pounding action and heightened tension of The Watchers. This latest offering delivers yet again, this time set against the intriguing historical backdrop of the Templar Knights and the Middle East conflict. Once again we are treated to a relentless thrill ride full of action, suspense, mystery, and global conspiracy. Olsen also carries readers along a deep spiritual journey at the core of this story that is eye-opening and breathtaking at every turn.
The Warriors can be read independently of The Watchers, but both are just too good to pass up. Mark Andrew Olsen is beginning to make his mark as a premiere thriller writer in the Christian market. I can only hope more and more people will discover this great storytelling talent that demands to be noticed.
