Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney wants out. He's been drawn
against his will into a dangerous international mission with world-ending implications
--and his final assignment is going to pit him directly against the terrifying, evil entity
known only as the Turk.
But when the Turk's minions breach the US embassy in Israel and the American
ambassador disappears, Mullaney has no choice. He must accept his role as the final
guardian of a mysterious box, his only weapon against the powers of darkness bent on
preventing the second coming of the Messiah, no matter who or what they annihilate to
accomplish their goal. Can this man who's already lost so much find the strength and faith
to save the world--and fulfill the prophecy of peace?
The final volume of the Empires of Armageddon trilogy will have fans of Joel Rosenberg,
Ronie Kendig, and Frank Peretti on the edge of their seats up to the final page.

I hope you have read the first two books in this series. If not, stop here and go read them. They are a must in order to follow the storyline and not miss out on any details. The author is incredible at delivering high tech super charged action . The chapters seem a bit short but they are increasingly intense.
The story is set in Israel and I found the details to be accurate as the author weaves a tale of espionage and a character I have come to really like. Brian is a dedicated Secret Service agent but he feels it’s time to depart that roll. It won’t be easy to slip away from the secrets , lies, and enemies that he has encountered. I think what I liked most about the book was that it moved quickly and didn’t get bogged down with unnecessary details. I loved how the author takes a story and peels apart the outer layer so we can see the real nitty gritty of a sabotage in action.
I won’t say much about what the story is about but I will say it will be one that calls for spiritual warfare. Yes there is evil out there and our story centers on someone who can’t be trusted within the walls of the White House. I did have a little trouble trying to keep up with everything going on as there were plots within plots that eventually all came together. Keep on your toes as you read this powerful story that satisfies those who love action, intrigue and a spiritual overtone.
I received a copy of this book from Read With Audra. The review is my own opinion.
