Summary

Marilena Carpathia has only one dream; to be a mother. So when a mysterious clairvoyant promises the fulfillment of this dream, Marilena does not hesitate. Through genetic engineering and the power of the Prince of Darkness himself, Marilena is about to become a chosen vessel, one who will unknowingly give birth to the greatest evil the world has ever known.

Halfway around the world, God’s plans are subtly being carried out too. Young Ray Steele is determined to avoid one day taking over the family business. Instead, Ray sets his heart on becoming a pilot.

Soon Marilena’s offspring, Nicholae Carpathia and Ray Steele’s lives will intersect. Good and evil will clash in an explosion that will shake the world as the eternal battle for souls comes to earth, and the world hurtles toward the countdown to the Rapture!

Fantastic!

Really fascinating account of the conception, birth and young life of the Antichrist, parallelled with the life of the young Rayford Steele as they prepare to converge in the Left Behind book series. Couldn't stop listening, I'm hooked!

good book but not as good as the last 12

it's a great book and gives great detail to the 2 most main characters of the seires. this book could also be the beginning of the seires as well because it doesn't give away really anything about the story to come. but it wasn't as exciting as the other books have been so I can see that it might turn some people away but I enjoyed listing to the entire 13 books

The Rising: Left Behind Series

A number of memorable moments. Two were life threatening plane landings.

Loved the book, and as a prequel loved the earlier stories of the childhoods of the three main characters. Two being the heroes of the series of the set of books and the third the future, evil, antagonist of the world. Review by Linda L. Dreier

Not for me

This book series was some of the worst writing that I have ever read. I wouldn't refer this book or series to anybody.

Awesome

I loved this prequel to the left behind series. It gave me a lot of depth I am glad I was able to have even after I finished the series. Thanks. I really enjoyed the narrator and the story. Can't wait to see other books by these authors.
