Memory's Door

"There will come a day when you will train them - they will be four. The Song, the Teacher, the Leader, the Temple. Keep your eyes open to see, your ears open to listen, you heart open to feel, and your mind open to discern.

When the time comes, the Spirit will reveal each of them to you. You will teach them the wonders of my power they can't yet imagine. And instruct these warriors how to go far inside the soul and marrow.

They will rise up and fight for the hearts of others. They will demolish strongholds in the heavens and grind their enemies to dust. Their victories will spread across the nations. You will pour out your life for them and lead them to freedom, and they will turn and bring healing to the broken and set the hearts of others free.

And then the Wolf rises, the four must war against him and bring about his destruction.

Only they have hope of victory.

And for one, their vision will grow clear,

And for one, the darkness of choice will rain on them,

And for one, the other world will become more real than this one,

And for one, death will come before the appointed time."

For Reece, Brandon, Marcus and Dana, they are the chosen four spoken of in the prophecy about to be fulfilled in the second Well Spring Novel from best selling author James L. Rubart in Memory's Door. When we left the foursome in Soul's Gate, the first novel in the series, they had ventured into the souls of those people who have been held in bondage by their sin and their pasts as a way to begin the training that they will now have to utilize to war against what is known as the Wolf. They just have to figure out who or what the Wolf is before it's too late.

Now that the four have mastered the ability to travel within the souls of those needing healing and freedom from their sin that has held them in bondage, they are about to go head to head in an epic spiritual battle that I've only found in novels by Frank Peretti but this one will leave you shaking your head and wondering what is real and what is part of the spiritual deception played out by the demon they fought against in Soul's Gate, Zennon who has already robbed Reece of his sight. Will they be able to find a way to work together despite all the outside issues that are working against them being successful as the Warriors Riding or are these merely just another ploy of the enemy to cause division among the group?

This series combines some of the best genres together to create something that almost defies a clear explanation of what you are to immerse yourself in. Take Science Fiction, Supernatural Spiritual Warfare, Fantasy and add in the element of Suspense and you have briefly looked into the remarkable creation that only James L. Rubart can create. I received Memory's Door by James L. Rubart compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I have not received any monetary compensation for a favorable review. It took me much longer than I anticipated to finish Memory's Door, partly because it had been awhile since reading Soul's Gate that I had to spend some time refreshing myself with what had happened in the first book to be able to move forward in this one. This is definitely not meant to be a stand alone novel and I recommend reading Soul's Gate before picking this one up.

The other issue is that there is so much happening in this novel. It is packed with action and mystery with each of the four characters not only having to deal with their personal issues, Dana with her career, Marcus with his past decision that could destroy his marriage and family, Reece coming to terms that his vision might not ever be restored like he believes, and Brandon struggling with his music career. They must each find their personal freedom with what God has in store for each of them and be willing to let things go that they are grasping so tightly in this world before they can hope to master what awaits them in the spiritual realm. If not, it might just be the end of one or all of them.

I easily rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and it's meant to take some time to gain a full grasp of what the meaning is behind this book. I found myself constantly looking at characters with fresh perspective because just when you think you might have someone's motives figured out, you realize you were so wrong. I believe James accomplishes his purpose by the time you get to the end and you find yourself reflecting on some of your own issues that may be hindering your own spiritual walk in growing closer to God. Ultimately the message is that Jesus is the only way to have freedom from sin that keeps you believing the lies of the enemy. That you can never change, you can never be forgiven, and there is no hope for a better life. Jesus can free you from all those lies and give you the freedom you seek.
