The Assault by Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky

Back Cover:

As Darkness Threatens, Four Gifted People Will Give the World Its Best--And Maybe Only--Chance to Survive. This is Harbingers.

In Invitation, four beloved and bestselling suspense authors introduced supernaturally gifted characters on a race to stem the tide of growing evil. Now Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky return with the next cycle of fast-paced and riveting tales.

In Bill Myers's "The Revealing" the team finds themselves in Rome trying to retrieve the mystical spear Hitler once stole. The task will take them from hidden chambers inside the Vatican to a mysterious seaside cave with unexpected and dangerous powers.

Frank Peretti's "Infestation" tells of a microscopic plague unleashed on the world that deceives, blinds, kills, then spreads and kills again. The Harbingers team must confront this faceless evil bent on seducing and destroying humankind.

In "Infiltration" by Angela Hunt, a seaside respite intended to buy time for the wounded team turns deadly when misplaced trust leads the Harbingers into dangerous waters.

Alton Gansky's "The Fog" reveals a supernatural mist unlike any other, filled with vicious monsters that kill whatever they find. When one team member realizes the only way to stop the fog is to enter it, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

Review: YIKES! I couldn't put this book down.... literally.... I couldn't unlock my terror frozen knuckles (haha). Joking aside, I'm really enjoying this Harbringers series. As mentioned in a previous review, this series runs like a TV show. There are four authors and each author writes one novella for each book. Each novella contributes to the overall theme/story that the authors are telling together. Each author writes from a different character's point of view. Sound confusing? It's not. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this series brings in a whole new chapter of book writing where this type of style becomes very common. I love being able to pick the book up and read a complete story in thirty minutes.... but yet have that story adding to an overall story. It's very cool.

The characters in this series are all so different from each other and very engaging. The uniqueness of this cast of characters is so entertaining - from an atheist ex-priest, to a soft heart ex-football player with the gift of healing, to a little boy that can see into the spiritual realm, to a tattoo artist that tattoos prophecies, and lastly, a genius who sees patterns and numbers in everything. When these five get thrown together - watch out! Sparks fly and action happens. This series is fast paced and very exciting.

Of note.... it is scary. Like...chew my nails off and keep my feet covered in a blanket scary. I personally wouldn't give this book to anyone under about 16 years old (I am quite conservative, FYI). In my opinion, it is an older-teen/adult read.

Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Baker Publishing House for a copy of this book!
