When Paul finally appeals to Caesar before Governor Festus, so begins a treacherous voyage to Rome and a surprising encounter with the next generation of the Roman family of Antonius, Julius the Roman
Centurion. After months at sea and a harrowing shipwreck on Malta, Paul arrives in Rome yet must spend two years under house arrest before his trial before Emperor Nero. Julius arranges for his brother
Theophilus to be Pauls legal counsel in Rome, and Luke writes two letters (Luke and Acts) to help him prepare Pauls case. Hope abounds when Nero releases Paul and drops the charges of the Jews. He is finally free to continue his mission to spread the good news of Jesus. But the Enemy has other plans, and manifests once more as the evil lion Lucifer to come after the Christians. A wave of persecution sweeps across the
Roman Empire as believers are forced underground and face horrific death through Neros cruel whims or in the arena with lions. Peter and Paul are finally arrested and sentenced to death in Rome, but not before they write several last letters to strengthen the church. Neros excesses spell his doom, and a new era of emperors is ushered in with the rise of the Flavian Dynasty. With the rise of Domitian comes increased persecution of the church and the exile of John on Patmos. He laments being the last remaining disciple but his hope is restored by the Revelation and release from Patmos.
This heart-gripping, action-packed adventure concludes a two-book saga that brings to life the events of Acts and the birth of Christianity while showing how each book of the New Testament came to be.

First of all I would like to comment on the cover of the novel. The Fire, the Revelation and the Fall has such an attractive cover that I actually took the novel without reading its blurb. I never do that, ever. I never really believed when people said a cover can tell a lot about the book. Jenny L. Cote proved them all right. I loved the vivid colors of the cover and the dynamic battle scene in the distance was so intriguing that I could not help but read it.
I usually shy away from novels that are part of a series I am not familiar with because they tend to confuse me. This novel did nothing of the sort. I understood everything that was going in Pauls life and his third mission. The mission to complete the New Testament is not easy, especially when Pauls life is in danger, but his faith and courage guides him through every obstacle, even though he is arrested and might be executed. It is a wonderful way to show Christian history.
I really loved the description of Rome. You can almost smell the air, the dust, and taste the water. The descriptions are so dynamic and vivid that you can actually imagine the scenes with crystal clarity in your mind. Imperial Rome is so majestic and fascinating, it really showed the amount of research Jenny L. Cote did in order to achieve this level of perfection. It felt hyper-real and so consuming. I love a book that makes me forget where I am. This novel just makes you read, read and read. Kudos for the job well done!
