Well, I said I'd get to it! Here it goes:
Baden's book won't leave him alone. He'd like nothing more than to get rid of the Bible he found in the wreckage of a derelict starship. It's brought trouble - the secret police are closing in on him. He's fighting more with his father. And he fears that Gail may be falling under the book's spell. But he can't seem to let it go. Now he's sharing what he's read with believers who have awaited the return of God's Word for decades. His mysterious rescuer, Jason, wants the Bible taken to a safe place. So now it's his choice. He can hide it, or proclaim it.
With Kesek in control of the Realm and coming after all its opponents, Baden will have to trust not only in his friends but in a contingent of elite soldiers determined to save the king. He'll have to come to grips with the power he has unleashed on the Realm of Five. And that power has plans of its own. (Description taken from Amazon.com)
Wow. I can't say enough good things about this book. It was a worthy addition to the Face of the Deep series, and it was just amazing.
The plot was brilliant. The action never stopped, and I found myself holding my breath several times as the story neared the end. From space battles to the kidnapping of the king; this book had it. Steve Rzasa pulled it off wonderfully.
I personally couldn't imagine a world- er, worlds- without a Bible. It was just amazing to follow Baden as he finds out what kind of power he's really unleashed across the worlds... the Bible.
Really, I'm rather at a loss for words. A race to earth, the mystery of Alexandria... and the Word unleashed. Rated 9.2 out of 10.
