For years Jacob Christianson struggled to reconcile his faith with his skepticism about the fundamentalist practices of his polygamous community. Nevertheless, whenever his family and neighbors in Blister Creek were threatened, Jacob always stepped up to join the fight against those who would destroy them. Now Jacob is facing his greatest challenge yet. Taylor Kimball Jr. has returned, and he wants to take over as prophet of Blister Creek — and claim Jacob’s sister Eliza as his unwilling bride. To protect his family and neighbors, Jacob forms a tenuous alliance with his father — the reigning prophet — and the FBI. But Taylor, as crafty as he is brutal, anticipates Jacob’s plan and descends on Blister Creek with a horrific new weapon capable of annihilating the town. If Jacob is to win this battle, he must rise above his thirst for personal vengeance and become the leader his people so desperately need. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hanscom | 7/9/2013

    " Between 3 1/2 and 4. This is the 4th book of a series, and, though the story is exciting, the premise is getting old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/27/2013

    " I am hooked on this series. I highly recommend that anyone start from the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 5/22/2013

    " Not as good or easy to read as the other 3. I was extra disappointed when I got to the end and realized that it wasn't the end and there is going to be a 5th book. I really feel the author could have finished the story in 4. I'll read the next one and hope it's worth the wait. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/7/2013

    " This series is so terrible and I keep reading it. This one features as much over the top violence as the others but was much less rape obsessed (yay). Author continues to work out issues with women and basically breaks his arm patting himself on the back for admitting they are people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Burnett | 1/3/2013

    " This is by far the best of the four books in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 11/23/2012

    " I was about ready to give up on these books until the end of this one. I'll probably go one more to see what happens. The middle part of this one, though, was pretty weak. Just wandering through the dessert--Moses did it better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 11/13/2012

    " I really enjoy this series. I am so glad that I stuck with it. I was a little surprised at some things that happened with the main characters but I think that makes the series more realistic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Beck | 11/12/2012

    " A very good read. This entire series is interesting. "
