About:

Jillian is picture-perfect on the outside, but terrified of getting hurt on the inside. Brittany is a tough girl who trusts almost no one. Ian is a successful athlete who dabbles in the occult. And Rob is a former gang-banger who struggles with guilt, pain, and a newfound faith in God. These four college students will face the ultimate battle between good and evil in a single year. As spiritual warfare rages around them, a dramatic demonic correspondence takes place. Readers can eavesdrop on the enemy, and learn to stave off their own defeat, by reading The Ishbane Conspiracy.

My thoughts:

If you have read Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness and like it then this is a book you will thoroughly enjoy.

From the beginning I was pulled into this book and the “realness” of it. This book is so close to real life and what teen-agers struggle with.

Our four characters are all going through something, or have gone through something and the enemy is playing on the their weakness and wounds.

Oh, to be inside the head of the enemy made me so mad sometimes because I know these are the games he really tries to play with us and our children. He even talks about how he knows he can’t take down those that are already believers but can make us ineffective…grrrr.

This book is layered in truth and grounded in the Word. I think it was eye-opening for me to read this and be reminded how the enemy uses seemingly innocent things for his twisted plans.

The main characters are young but I don’t feel this is a young adult novel. I believe this book is for everyone and parents with teens will especially glean a lot from this book.

This is a novel I highly recommend 🙂
