Series: The Firstborn
It took two thousand years to bring the Firstborn together.
It will only take a moment...to tear them apart.
The Firstborn--three ancient religious orders gifted with the ability to see past, present and future--have formed a shaky truce for the first time since the death of Christ. But dangerous forces, both human and otherwise, are rising to destroy them.
Torn between the call to rescue three innocent teenage girls abducted into sexual slavery, preventing the racially motivated assassination of a prominent American politician, and dealing with the wild warnings of an elusive and mysterious prophet, all eyes turn to the Overseer and the struggle over who will control the fate of the Firstborn.
Hannah Rice, John Temple, and Devin Bathurst return in this adrenaline-packed sequel to The Firstborn as they are hurled into a dark world of human trafficking, shadowy government agencies, assassination, and a race against time to save everything they believe in.

They are warned by a strange man named Angelo that if they stop the assassination, the Thresher will be released to hunt down and destroy the Firstborn. This knowledge splits the organization in two sides, those who support stopping the assassin and those are are in fear of their lives. Brown does a wonderful job of creating a world in which no one is completely trustworthy, and intentions are never what they seem. Political machinations, fast-paced action, and tortured romance keep the reader hooked from the first page. Brown creates an interesting dilemma in that is the life of one man worth saving if it will cost the lives of countless others. What is a good man compelled to do with the knowledge of another's impending death? It's a thrilling suspense novel with a punch of deeper questions about what it means to be a Christian.
