Tea & Read: The Watchers

Title: The Watchers
Author: Mark Andrew Olsen
Rating: Spend the Day Sleepy

Sometimes a book calls to me. It seems like I see it in every time I go in a bookstore or someone is talking about it. This was one of those examples. I had seen this book several times and had even told my husband that I wanted the book. I am so glad I finally got it.

This novel is the story of Abby Sherman, a girl having some very strange visions. When she posts the visions on her social network site, it throws into danger from forces she never dreamed. Dylan Hatfield is the man hired to stop her from sharing her message. But as he tries to accomplish his mission, he realizes that things are not what they seem.

This is an excellent spiritual warfare book. I've read many through the years; some hit the mark and some didn't. If I had to rank this book in my top five spiritual warfare books, it would come second behind This Present Darkness, This Piercing Darkness by Frank Peretti. The Vertis Conflict by Shaunti Feldhahn, and Isolation by Travis Thrasher (see previous post) would round out the top five, respectively.

Mark Andrew Olsen does a wonderful job of making the spirit world believable and tangible. He has proven himself to be a repeat-buy author with Hadassah and The Hadassah Covenant, books he co-authored with Tommy Tenney. I can't wait to start the second book in this series, The Warriors. If you love spiritual warfare books, I highly recommend these.
