Reece stood and faced the group. “Every now and then we get a break from reality. A glimpse into the other world that is more real than the reality we live in 99 percent of our days. The Bible is about a world of demons and angels and great evil and even greater glory. A world the prophets saw; the world Enoch, and Elijah, and Paul, and John the apostle all saw. A world that is all around us in every moment if we would have eyes to see and ears to hear.”

What if you could travel inside another person’s soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds.

Thirty years ago that’s exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his destiny.

Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and train them.

They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity. And how to step into the supernatural as powerfully as anyone in the Bible did.

The four have a destiny to battle for a freedom even Reece doesn’t fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them as well and he'll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

 I really didn't want to find another author to go immediately onto my MUST read list. I was able to not get sucked into Rubart's previous titles because they didn't arrive in my mailbox. But this little gem did. 

If you love books about spiritual warfare or novels full of twists and turns and creepy potential around every corner...if you love to be kept up way past your bedtime or love good writing and strong characters....well, you just need to get a copy.  The ending and the "Well Spring" tag imply that there will be follow-up books. This is good. Very good. There are just enough issues unresolved and just enough of a promise that things are only going to get worse to make sure that I will seek book two out.

In the meantime I will be working backwards to get a copy of previous novels by Rubart. He does need to get cracking on book two in the series. Time's a ticking, Mr. Rubart, this inquiring mind needs to know what will happen next.
