Wow. That is probably the best word to use when I first think of this book. I really liked Chuck Black’s Kingdom Series and his Knights Series, but this book goes above and beyond what we’ve come to expect from Mr. Black’s work. This book kept me reading… I couldn’t put it down.
Book 1 in Wars of the Realm introduces us to Drew Carter. Drew’s world is anything but perfect, but he starts playing football in highschool and making friends. After a tragic accident takes the life of a friend, Drew gives up on life. Until Ben Phillips challenges his best friend to get a grip and move on.
Drew throws himself into earning a double major in finance and math. He takes on his life… but he’s still lacking something. He bumps into the young speech champion Sydney from highschool. She explains to him that she can’t date an unbeliever, and leaves Drew wondering at her convictions. A few days later an accident in the Physics lab leaves Drew blind. As his sight returns – there is something different.
Drew can see warriors of darkness. Everywhere. And no one else in the world can see them. Or the warriors of light.
And Ben disappears. The only person who can explain Drew’s ability and he’s gone. After an attempt on his life, Drew decides to protect his mom by leaving. After Drew is seen at a school shooting, he has the FBI on his heels, and heads for the woods.
Find Ben. Protect Sydney, who has a gift of her own. Drew’s life seems so clear, if he could let God help him.
