Book Review: Mark of Evil by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall

*I received this book via BookLook Bloggers for purposes of review, however all opinions are my own.

The Mark of Evil
by Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall

About the Book:
"Economies have fallen, freedom has been suppressed, and peace is a distant memory. The world is falling apart. Joshua Jordan’s protégé Ethan March, along with Jimmy Louder and Rivka Reuban have been left behind in a world that is rapidly coming under the complete influence of the Antichrist.
Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, with BID-Tag implants, robotic police units, and drone-bots flying overhead . . . all designed to control and dominate those who resist the Antichrist’s reign of evil. As Biblical prophecy is fulfilled each new day, Ethan and the others in the Remnant struggle to eat, to procure necessary goods, and to avoid the Global Alliance---in short, to survive.
But when the forces of evil attempt to pervert the world’s most powerful information system to their own sinister ends, eliminating everyone who gets in their way, it’s up to Ethan and the Remnant to subvert their dark ambitions. From New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye, creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind books, and Craig Parshall, Mark of Evil is the final thrilling chapter in The End series.
With high-tech thrills against a background of prophetic events that seem to leap from today’s news, this is the story of global tribulations bringing the world one step closer to the reign of the Antichrist and the return of Jesus Christ in glory."
My Review:
I have always been fascinated with the book of Revelation and the prophecies of end times.  Years ago I read all of the books in The Left Behind series so when I got the opportunity to read The Mark of Evil I knew I wanted to check it out.  This is the last book in the End Series and I wish I had the others in the series.  I plan to go back and read the previous books.
This story unfolds after the Rapture and is quite compelling.  It's also very scary because it is based on biblical accounts.  The tribulation isn't going to be fun times and it really hits home that if your not in agreement with God, you really need to be.  Very tech based, this book takes you on the very rough journey of those who became believers after the Rapture and through the coming of the Anti-Christ.  It's a fast paced read with amazing characters and vivid writing.  I was left with a few questions though and would love to see just one more book that rounds it all out, but this is a great book that I highly recommend to both believers and non.  It's definitely an eye opener.
