Journey

Destiny

Jack Carter thought he'd seen the worst, but that was just wishful thinking. A revelation comes to light, as Jack prepares to face Harbinger alone, and it changes everything.
 
On top of that, the news is delivered by a beautiful envoy from the Council. She is not what Jack expected, and he must prepare for battle, while trying to sort out his feelings.
 
Does his heart still belong to Mandy, or has the new woman in his life changed his mind.
 
What he does know, if he doesn't defeat Harbinger, his feelings won't matter anyway.
 

My Review

I have to admit, I enjoyed this series more than I thought I would, there are loads of books out there of this genre, and we all know of the Ghost Whisperer on the TV. However, I haven't come across another where our hero works for Jesus and God, they are all usually pretty vague about that aspect, just being somewhat "spiritual" in nature.
 
First of all, I do wonder if the frequent references to Ministry, prayer and Jesus might not put some people off, but I can't see why it should, if they are non believers then why would they not merely accept it as fiction?
 
Secondly, I can appreciate how some Christians will enjoy the story because of the Christian slant, but it certainly might be a problem for others. I have some family members would not be happy at all, but I would simply echo the author, just enjoy it for what it is, a good story!
 
The story lines are well laid out in the publishers summary, I can't really add much to that without spoiling. I actually listened as if I had the three separate books, taking a break between them, I feel it would have been an overload of Christianity to listen for too long. However, that's a purely personal opinion, and I think listeners will be pleasantly surprised by these stories.
 

Narrator

It did take a little while to get used to the narrators style, a little too "voiceover" at times, nevertheless, once I grew accustomed to it, it did not distract from the work
