KIRKUS REVIEW

An exciting, spiritual novel about a man striving to protect the will of God.

What if you could not only learn God’s will, but also change it? This provocative notion lies at the center of Wilkinson and Rogers’ debut novel, the first in a series, about a circle of friends who have incredible powers. Rick Walters never believed himself to be ordinary, and he soon discovers just how on target his instincts are. He struggles to save his local church, which he believes is growing too large to serve its population, but he’s unaware that dueling demons and angels threaten to upset the world’s spiritual balance. The angel Praymar chooses Rick to receive an intense, astounding power—insight into the will of God—that allows Rick not only to remedy the turmoil in his church, but also to right the wrongs of humanity. Rick learns about many things that are beyond the understanding of most mortals. Meanwhile, he also falls in love with Christine Feldman, a beautiful lawyer in his small Marquette, Ohio, neighborhood. They soon discover that their close friends also have a secret—one that may overpower Rick’s new powers and threaten the safety of humanity. As good and evil fight to the finish, Rick focuses his energy on bringing the world closer to God’s will. In simple, clear prose, the authors tell the story of Rick’s archetypal quest to right humanity’s wrongs. They engagingly portray him as a hero in every sense of the word, with his love for Christine symbolizing the pure, sacred love that can be achieved on Earth. The twisted path that Rick travels to fight evil keeps the story teeming with possibility and energy, and many Christian readers will find surprises, inspiration and comfort within these pages.

A supernatural tale of good and evil that offers a new spin on a classic theme.
