Overall, I would say this was a good read...I was a little disappointed the way Rosenberg seemed to cut the story short at the end...although I would recommend the book, this has to be my least favorite piece of fiction written by Mr. Rosenberg to date...
When I picked up this book, I didn't know it was the 3rd in a series. Thankfully, you can follow along just fine without Books 1 & 2.
I had heard high praise for Rosenburg's work in the past, but never read any of his books until now. It won't be the last book of his I read, I'm sure. I really enjoyed Damascus Countdown. It's intriguing, well written, and is not predictable. In my experience, fiction written by a Christian author does not deliver quality work. Rosenburg does. And that is a refreshing change of pace.
I don't usually give books 5 stars. This novel deserves each one.
I see several reviewers state that if you like the Left Behind Series you'll like this book. That may be true, but don't let the comparison turn you off if you weren't a fan. I did not care for that series, and, thankfully, was not once reminded of Left Behind while reading this book.
Damascus Count Down by Joel C. Rosenberg was an action packed read that was hard to put down. Like the first two books it didn't disappoint. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, holding my breath from one scene to the next. Once again Joel Rosenberg has written a political thriller that seems to have come from tomorrow's headlines and has captured the attention of many.
I am a bible believing Christian but this book series I could not get into. I am just not a fan of this type. I thought I would try it but I still did not like it. If you are a fan of the Left Behind series then you might like this one.
