It wasn't that bad. Ok, so it was kinda slow and some of the dialogue for the resurrection scene seemed forced and purposfully dragged out, but it was still pretty decent. But not nearly as good as Assassins. I mean, let's face it, we all knew what was going to happen during Indwelling, but Assassins kept you on your toes. If they Jerry Jenkins and Tim LeHaye can get back to that kind of suspense in The Mark, then it will be exceptional. So far, this has been the lowest ranking (in my opinion) of all the books, but it's still decent. Read it if you want to keep up with the series, but don't make this the first one...start at the begining. It'll make things a lot clearer for you.
This book is my second fav book. I cant believe people think this book is a 0 or a 3 .They are really misleading you on this book. The truth is kind of slow in the beginning, it does have alot of hints that people are still trying to figure out.But the last two chapter are the total best.The last two chapters take over the other chapters. So I may say it keeps you wondering and praying that no more get hurt.
