The Judgment Stone
Release Date Apr 1, 2013
Publisher Thomas Nelson
What if praying became a curse instead of a blessing?
Army Ranger Jagger Baird thought he had his hands full with the
Tribe--the band of immortal vigilantes fighting to regain God's grace by
killing those opposed to Him. But that was before he encountered the
ruthless group of immortals called the Clan. The Clan is after a prize
that would give them unimaginable power--a piece of the Ten Commandments
known as the Judgment Stone.
Those who touch the Stone can see
into the spiritual world: angelic warriors, treacherous demons, and the
blue threads of light that signal the presence of believers in communion
By following the blue beam radiating from those
closest to God, the Clan plans to locate His most passionate followers
and destroy them.
Jagger quickly realizes his high-tech gadgetry
and training are no match for these merciless immortals. But how can he
defeat an enemy who hunts believers through their prayers . . . and
won't stop until they've annihilated all those close to Him?
this high-action thriller, best-selling author Robert Liparulo examines
the raging battle between good and evil on earth . . . and beyond.
If I see a book with Robert Liparulo's name on it, it ends up in my to
read pile. His writing is tense, descriptive (chickens take note, this
is not always a pleasant thing) and hopeful. Liparulo crafts characters
that are flawed and real and pull at your heartstrings and have kept me
up past bedtime a night or two.
And his stories. Whew. Always full of what if's and enough truth to keep
me thinking and enough speculation and twists to make me wonder what
kind of pizza he eats before bed. This particular book is number two in
the series. If you haven't read The Thirteenth Tribe, you may want to
whip through it first, however, you won't be lost if you don't. The
story centers around Immortals and an epic battle of good vs evil. And
The Judgment Stone provides some seriously epic battles. And a story
line that is haunting.
The Judgment Stone is an excellent choice for a beach read, plane trip
or just because. I was home alone a couple nights and I couldn't open it
after dark, so chickens and sensitive readers, you have been warned.
Keep em coming, Robert, puleeze.
