The world is in chaos by this time in the series and there is no doubt who the Anti-Christ is. Oppression of the Christians has only begun and there are alot of people in the world gunning for Nicolae. Who is responsible for Nicolae's shooting? Great mystery in this book and alot of action. Definetly keeps you interested.
I have the whole series and was missing this book (lent it to someone, can't remember who ??? God's work !!!). I highly recommend reading the whole series if you haven't already done so. It's awesome reading.
Assassins, the sixth Left Behind book, is the last about the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. This book is about as slow and un-action packed as the last one, Apollyon, but it's redeeming factor, besides just being in the Left Behind series, (isn't that enough) is that for you mystery readers, you can try to figure out who's going to murder Nicolae Carpathia. This is an especially good way to pass the time if you have to wait to read the next book. I still say the third and fourth books were the best, but Assassins is still very good reading.
This book is number 3 on my top 10 left behind books. The book carries alot of action. The are some points where it makes you cry and there are some points where you wonder what happens next. I have to say ,this is a must have book for any reader.
