Book 1 of a modern-day spiritual warfare trilogy.
Drew is caught in a world of light - just inches away from the dark.
What if...there was a world beyond our vision, a world just fingertips beyond our reach? What if...our world wasn't beyond their influence?
Tragedy and heartache seem to be waiting for Drew Carter at every turn, but college offers Drew a chance to start over - until an accident during a physics experiment leaves him blind and his genius friend, Benjamin Berg, missing.
As his sight miraculously returns, Drew discovers that the accident has heightened his neuron activity, giving him skills and sight beyond the normal man. When he begins to observe fierce invaders that no one else can see, he questions his own sanity, and so do others. But is he insane or do the invaders truly exist?
With help from Sydney Carlyle, a mysterious and elusive girl who offers encouragement through her faith, Drew searches for his missing friend, Ben, who seems to hold the key to unlocking this mystery. As the dark invaders close in, will he find the truth in time?

stick with it
a bit slow to start but stick with it well worth waiting for the action to kick in
"This is AMAZING!"
I haven't read the book yet, but I have purchased it for my children. There's nothing to beat a person's imagination, but this version is pretty exciting!
The first battle between the demon and angel warriors.
The whole performance was exceptional. It kept my entire family on the edge of their seats!
The title is fine.
Oh man! Your family will love this one! It begins with an average family where tragedy strikes and follows the course of the young man through his preteen and college years. It is very interesting to follow Drew through this time and see how his perceptions about life and God are formed. The book is very relevant in addressing 'coming of age' and this postmodern age of 'science' and 'reason.' I love the apologetic aspect of this book as it addresses many current arguments and issues that face believers in this day and age. There is a lot of technical scientific language that many young listeners won't understand, but the performance will make this negligible.
The dramatization is fantastic. You will be drawn in by the music and sound effects. It adds SO much to the book. It's refreshing to have a book the entire family can listen to. I also love that the books unashamedly deals with being unequally yoked with a nonbeliever. This can be a difficult topic to address with preteens and other children because sometimes they won't listen to you or they think you don't get it. But hearing Drew and Sydney interact over the years and the many issues that come up is very educating.
Overall, this is a wonderful audiobook. I also have every other book by Chuck Black. The Knights of Arrethtrae series is also fantastic as it also deals with the spiritual realm.
"Absolutely fantastic !!!!"
Great book. Great action. Good storyline. Loved the characters. I found myself not being able to go to sleep and the book kept me in the edge of my seat. A great Christian fiction with spiritual warfare. Although my question to those who walk in the supernatural ..... Is this REALLy fiction ? :-). Enjoy !!!!
"Great story! "
Everything was done and spoken very well. I never wanted to stop listening to this.
Twist on a genre that is tricky to do well. I am buying extra credits just to get to book 2 as fast as I can. The readers were great and, though I was first put off by the sound effects, they really did add to the drama once the story revved up. I'm hooked.
"Enjoyed plot of glimpse into spirit world"
Well-written plot of engaging action storyline with insight into the unseen world. Although the first half of the book was a bit slow, the author does an excellent job laying a foundation for the rest of the book.
Having listened to the dramatized audio version of the book, I enjoyed the different voices and sound effects, especially towards the end as the voices of the angels/demons were inserted.
Chuck Black has been a favorite author of our family since his Kingdom Series set of books.
Wonderful book. Even better narration. It is so hard to find books that are narrated in this manner. Give this one a listen.
This book is written for Christian readers. I did not realize that when I purchased the book. This book would be great for a young adult Christian book club. It has good writing and a good narrator. I rated it low because I don't like the subject or a book that tells me I am going to hell for my beliefs. Not my cup of tea.
"one of Chuck's best "
Riveting, uplifting and highly addictive. Chuck has touched a whole new audience. God bless you.
"Wonderful book it held me to the end."
You will love this book! For all ages I have only read a few really great christain books. The Invfluence by Matthew Slick and Frank Peretti 's This Present Darkness. I will keep this book for ever.
I was into it the entire time. I like the story line. I am interested enough to read again from this author on my next book. some of the characters kind of passed over my head. don't remember hearing a description. Kurgan and the other one
