A nice addition to the whole storyline, but a little weird in some places, and downright disappointing in others, mainly in how some of the characters acted..

Anyone who loves Christian fiction must read this series. It all begins in this fascinating book. It is good, good, good!!!

This is another series with the Left Behind series although it is only 3 books in this series. It focuses on the beginnings of Nicholae and his early years before he comes into the Left Behind (12 book series) I guess a pre-quel to the Left Behind although it was written afterwards.
