    " This story could begin in any small town, in any country, in world. The author gives the reader a little glimpse of the unseen realm. Most enjoyable and very close to reality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Greene | 1/25/2014

    " I read this years ago, when I was in high school. I think it was supposed to scare me away from the "New Age" movement. Didn't work. But I remember Loving it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 1/21/2014

    " Great book!!! Wonderful scenes of suspense. Written in such a way that the reader can relate to everything said and felt. Wonderfully descriptive and evokes emotion. Peretti really captures characters' feelings and develops scenes so that readers are constantly wanting to find out what happens next. I have read this book numerous times; I think I read it twice a year at least. Love it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debby | 1/20/2014

    " I'm not one of those "there's a demon behind every bush" sort of people. However, this book opened my eyes to the reality of the spirit realm around us and what spiritual warfare might look like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chele | 12/24/2013

    " A whole different type of book-changes your complete way of thinking in a good way. A battle is going on around us and we can't see it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Strnad | 12/21/2013

    " Peretti does a wonderful job bringing a visual to spiritual warfare. This book was a great reminder of the urgency of prayer burdens, and the reality of the unseen battle happening around us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 12/12/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Douglas | 12/6/2013

    " If you "think" you believe in spiritual warfare, you better read it. It's convincing. (BTW, I believe in spiritual warfare...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 10/28/2013

    " Best book I've ever read.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginal | 6/10/2013

    " This is a very good book. It has a lot of adventure and heartwarming situations that everyone can relate to. It is rather long but I like the detail. I think it has a lot of reminders of how God is in everyone's life even if they don't realize it. Take the time to read this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy Caffas kowalkowski | 2/26/2013

    " In this extraordinary narrative, angels and demons fight around us and their strength is based on the prayers of Christians. The results of these battles affect humanity. I think this is a fresh idea. The characters could be better developed and the story is a little contrived but it's a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meltch1 | 2/11/2013

    " It's been a long time, but I know I really enjoyed the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 10/30/2012

    " This was a great book. Peretti managed to seamlessly weave a Christian message into what at first seems to be almost science fiction. It was a real eye opener as well into the spiritual battles all around us. Defiantly a book worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon Kerr | 5/21/2012

    " Enjoyed the hidden angels vs demons world and how it crosses over into daily life. But the prose is rather pedestrian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy Hickey | 5/11/2012

    " I absolutely love the way this man writes!! You can almost smell the sulfur as he spins his tale. You feel as though you are right there in the story with the characters and it is awesome!! This is definately a must read set! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 2/16/2012

    " Read it in a day & 1/2. Really enjoyed it. Amazing concepts... I hope I would be part of the "Remnant" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 5/13/2011

    " I want to know : where's the movie?! Excellent spiritual thriller, loved it. Believably frightening and written very well. Will look for more by Peretti. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 5/13/2011

    " One of my favorite books. Peretti is great at really bringing to life the spiritual realm that is going on every day that we are just so unaware of. Really enlightening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 5/8/2011

    " It belongs on a shelf beside the Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis, a very good book. The sequel wasn't as good, but don't let that ruin this for you. Its truly a great Christian novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 5/6/2011

    " Great story. Mediocre writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/3/2011

    " i loved how we had a front seat to a battle that we will never see but is out there! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jana | 4/13/2011

    " One of my favorite books. Very eye opening! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JT | 4/7/2011

    " Riveting is the word to describe this book. It was scary/creepy at certain times, but wonderful at others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacie | 3/31/2011

    " Religious fiction, but some awesome angel vs. demon action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luis | 3/21/2011

    " Excelente libro, primera vez que leo este genero, Ficción-Suspenso-Cristiano. Un gran mensaje acerca del poder de la oración. Se los recomiendo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 3/21/2011

    " There is more happening in the spiritual realm than we know. And this book, while fiction, gives us an idea of how, when we pray, angels are empowered to fight on our behalf against the demons that would like to take us down. Peretti gives us a wonderful picture of how that is done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 3/14/2011

    " Frank Peretti has an amazing way of telling a good story while bringing it all back to God. His writing is scary and dark and keeps me guessing. This is why I like his writing so much. "
