The Next Wave of Stories in the Harbingers Series Arrives
Cycle 2 of the Harbingers series continues the story of four gifted strangers brought together to fight a growing darkness.
In Bill Myers’s “The Revealing,” the team finds themselves in Rome trying to retrieve the mystical spear Hitler once owned–the very spear that pierced Christ’s side. This task will take them from hidden chambers inside the Vatican to a mysterious seaside cave with powers they could never expect.
Frank Peretti’s “Infestation” unleashes a microscopic evil on the world that deceives, blinds, kills, then spreads. The Harbingers team must confront a monster bent on seducing and destroying mankind.
In “Infiltration” by Angela Hunt, the team is wounded and barely holding together. Forced to split up, they realize their investigations have led them into dangerous waters.
Alton Gansky’s “The Fog” unleashes a supernatural mist unlike any other. There are vicious things in the fog that kill whatever they find. One team member realizes that the ultimate sacrifice may have to be made.
Four of the biggest power names in the Christian Fiction Market have returned with a follow-up in this series where they come together to write one story from 4 perspectives. If you loved their first offering then you won’t be disappointed by the second. Just make sure you read the first before this!
Myers, Peretti and Gansky who are already well known for their supernatural bent towards ChriFi join Hunt who is better known for books that tug at the heartstrings. Their talents blend together to create a lyrical storyline that tugs at the imagination.
The diversity in their voices makes for some interesting character and story choices as you dig through this series. Using different writers really helps to individualize the characters, provide a fuller world to dive into and set you up for a plot that is ripe to be turned into a Netflix series.
I found myself ignoring the world around me as I became intent on wanting to stay with the quick pace the authors had sent and not wanting to miss a moment. It was funny in a way because as I’m reading a book I can obviously put it down any time and return but the energy they were creating was something I just didn’t want to leave out of fear it wouldn’t be the same when I came back. I had to know where they were going and what this journey was going to look like.
Thankfully the third in the series, Probing, comes out this December so I won’t have to wait long to see what will happen to this amazing set of characters. This series is just so different from what you’d expect from traditional ChriFi I was entranced by this mind bending plot.
Thank you to Netgalley and Bethany House Publishers for allowing me to review this book.
