Christian Thriller Cut from Today's Headlines
In a collapsing society, it is easy sometimes to look to a savior, or anyone who promises to be a savior. Those who don't believe in a Deity will flock to the one who promises peace, a good economy, an easy government. Such is true in "Operation Dark Angel," which draws from the Biblical Book of Revelation to present Nicolaitanes Balac, prophesied by a Voice, born in immaculate conception, at a young age President of Italy and determined on world domination. Simultaneously, there is a move toward a one-world religion ("United World Religion") which is to avoid divergence and embrace any and all faiths; and the dreaded "Operation Dark Angel," which revolves around deadly biological warfare. This is the first novel in "The Four Horsemen Series."
exciting series by a talented new author
"The Four Horsemen Series: Operation Dark Angel" is a story of what might very well be the ultimate terrorist attack. Quite contrary to what the doomsayers have been predicting ever since, the Antichrist does not appear in a tempest of fire, brimstone, and blood. He is born as a male infant named Nicolaitanes by a human female. The only thing extraordinary about him is his amazing charisma and intelligence. With these he virtually shoots up the sectors of the wealthy and powerful and secures a position of wealth and power for himself. Once he does, he proceeds to carry out Operation Dark Angel. Operation Dark Angel is basically a complex and enormous terrorist attack involving various cells operating all over the world. At first, the terrorists carry out their master plan smoothly. But things suddenly begin unraveling when high-ranking members of the terrorist organization suspect Nicolaitanes to be more evil than they ever could have imagined. Meanwhile, unlikely forces fighting on the side of the good are brought together to stop Operation Dark Angel. A battle eventually erupts between the two sides. Tragically, all their efforts are for naught because Nicolaitanes ultimately wins when he plunges the world into a war from which he intends to emerge as supreme overlord.
This book is fast-paced and holds your attention throughout the entire book. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The author leaves you with a desire to know what happens next. This is definitely a series that I will be keeping up with. Check it out for yourself.
