Publisher Description

Ashton is just a typical small town. But when a skeptical reporter and a prayerful pastor begin to compare notes, they suddenly find themselves fighting a  hideous New Age plot to subjugate the townspeople, and eventually the entire human race. The battle rages in the spirit world between Rafar, leading his legions from the world of darkness, and Tal, leading his army of angels. The battle is unseen by the townspeople but they feel its presence and the vortex of evil threatening to annihilate them. Pastor Hank Busche and newspaperman Marshall Hogan join the battle and lead the human crusade against the evil demons. The fighting is vicious and the outcome is unforgettable.

"I never thought I'd read a book like this. I like fiction, but hadn't read any that were Christian books. A couple of friends recommended this after a bible study group. It took me about the first 4 chapters to really get into the book, but it was worth it. I'm intrigued by the concept of spiritual warfare, so this gave me some food for thought. Warning, don't let it take over your mind. Some of my friends have made interesting comments after reading this."

    " I read this book so many years ago, and I was completely enraptured by it. It was the first real Christian fiction I encountered, aside from C.S. Lewis - which is more fantasy. It had a profound impact on me at the time and made me a Peretti fan. "

    " We listened to the book-on-cassette version in our Bible class in high school at Midland Christian School. I remember we were on a spiritual warfare kick. It's interesting to hear descriptions of battles in the spiritual realm. "
