Dark Hour

If you don't already know this about me, I love Supernatural Suspense Thriller and once again Greg Mitchell has managed to completely captivate me and keep me literally on the edge of my seat with the conclusion to his fantastic series The Coming Evil. In the final novel, Dark Hour, things are about to come to an end, quite literally between the remnant of believers located in the town of Greensboro. They have had to resort to hiding in the abandoned church while evil quite literally is running unleashed among the residents in town that either have sided with the new mayor John Graves or have taken a passive approach to remain neutral and avoid either side.

John Graves is not all whom he seems to be, and quite literally is evil personified. He has convinced the town that he is their salvation and whatever their hearts desire is, he can make it happen, if they are willing to put their faith in him. I mean who wants to adhere to the same old strict dogma the church has been forcing people to deal with their whole lives. One in which you have to make sacrifices to give up those things which bring you the most desire, wealth, love and your ability to worship as you please. In fact, so many of the town's residents have bought into the lie, that there is virtually nothing left to redeem in this town. Only now, those who remain strong in their faith in Jesus, are considered evil now, and Mayor Graves has vowed to destroy the remnant that remains. Using all manner of creatures from the depths of hell along with the sin filled presence that inhabits the local lake, he vows to take back the town by the coming Dark Hour.

"The greatest evil is not the devil or his angels but the darkness that resides in the human heart. I'm only offering the people what they have always wanted since the Garden of Eden. Freedom without responsibility. Choice without consequence."

The remnant of believers headed up by Reverend Jeff Weldon believes that redemption is possible for anyone and he will stop at nothing to continue to preach the message of hope to the residents of Greensboro. Along with his wife Isabella and a handful of believers all they understand is that the town in on the verge of some ultimate choice. One that will either take back the town from Mayor Graves, who is known by the believers as the Strange Man or they will simply die trying. They know time is running out for the last opportunity to take a stand for God once and for all and with some divine supernatural help on both ends, the end may be a whole lot closer than most would like to believe.

I received Dark Hour, the third and final novel in The Coming Evil series from author Greg Mitchell for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review. This one really brings to a close all the unanswered questions that the reader may have had in reading the first two novels in the series, The Strange Man and Enemies of the Cross. Here things are wrapped up in a culmination in the ultimate battle between good and evil  as angels, demons and the prayers of believers go head to head for the salvation of the town of Greensboro. I believe the message of just what the true power of love and forgiveness is found within the pages of this unforgettable novel. It shows just what the Bible tells us that the greatest power on earth is simply love. Love ultimately triumphs over evil in the end. It gave me a new meaning to some of the scriptures I had read so many times, but found great power and faith in them. I rate this one hands down a perfect 5 out of 5 not so much for the overall content in this one, but also due to the fact that it never left me once I finished the novel. It stayed with me and continue to speak volumes to my spiritual heart. You will need to read the novels in order to understand where the story is going. This is not a stand alone novel.

"In the heavenlies, we're never removed from the presence of God. He's our light and our strength. But down here...down here, things are gray. Muddled. The Light is so much harder to see." ~ Christopher (Angel in Heaven)
