Summary

Tim LaHaye's most exciting series ever, Babylon Rising, continues with this explosive new installment, including more revelations than ever before.

In The Edge of Darkness, LaHaye reveals the meaning behind some of the most carefully guarded Biblical prophecies to expose a conspiracy with terrifying consequences for our modern world.

This time Michael Murphy sets off in search of the Lost Temple of Dagon and the dark secrets of the strange god once worshipped by the ancient Philistines. His quest will lead to a final confrontation with an old enemy and uncover one of the Bible's most feared warnings, a prophecy of false miracles, false messiahs, and ultimate evil that will be fulfilled in our time...and that not even Murphy can stop once it's begun.

Once again, Tim LaHaye combines his unmatched insight into Biblical prophecy with his unique skills as a master storyteller to deliver a suspense thriller of nonstop action with a thought-provoking message for our troubled times.

Don't miss the rest of the Babylon Rising series.

Amazing! Full Marks & ENCORE!

This was all I had hoped for - a great story action-packed & with a good romantic plot too...but the best part? Revelation & confirmation of the Bible's prophecy of things to come - which we believe are already upon us. Very informative of the 'Seven's plans & real life antics. Matrix life revealed. Excellent unveiling of he Great Deceptio stage at work today.Highly recommend this series & this book!

These Books just keep getting better!!!

If you are a fan of the Left Behind series of just a new reader. These books just keep making Scripture easier to understand. I think we should all pay attention to the Books... Because to put it simply. "One day these events will play out for all to see."

Great story but not well-written

The story was good but it was not well written. specifically the dialogue. They tried to squeeze so much detail from the Bible that it made the dialogue cheesy and unoriginal. Also I hated the ending, especially knowing the series is done.

cliff hanger!

I loved this book. They left it on a cliffhanger, so now I'm eager to know what happens to Murphy, Isis, and all the rest of the characters in this series.

build up build up build...plung off a cliff..end

My title is the plot, sadly.
On the positive, this story has action, it has bible, it acknowledges our world's lost nature, it has love...sortof.
The story does a great job building...though it barely acknowledges the cliffhanger ending of the previous book and only resolves it about halfway through this story.
However, there is no ending....
The plot builds to a climax which would normally resolve in the next few chapters or hang precariously from a cliff until the next book in the series........Except the book ends and so does the series. As best I can tell, there are no subsequent storylines in any series that resolve the characters. It honestly feels as though the author was preparing for a final book....all the cards were on the table for such....but lost the financial backing to do so....though he has far too much from The Left Behind Seriez for that to truly be a problem.
The unresolved plot and murdered storyline were frustrating...I know, I'm American and expect resolution, but, this book honestly feels like I ordered this world's most delicious dessert, it was brought to the table, and just as I was sticking the spoon on the table....somebody blew up the table.
Great story to a point, but boy Mr. Lahaye, did you poop on the end of it.
if I were you....stop reading after book 3 and imagine that Michael survives the tunnel with Abrams, goes home, and kisses Isis...cue credits and romantic music. You're better off that way .

Loved it!

It was exciting, interesting, and kept to a Christian concept. It's a refreshing read. I recommend it highly to everyone, especially a Christian.
