There have been many 'end of times' fiction novels written over the years, but the best has been the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. After the series ended, Tim LaHaye teamed up with author Craig Parshall for The End Series. For some reason, I thought the series concluded with Brink of Chaos, but I was wrong, as the fourth novel, Mark of Evil arrived in bookstores last month.

Similar to the Left Behind series, the rapture has occurred and millions of people have disappeared in the blink of an eye. The non-Christians (of the sinners) are the only ones that remain on Earth, as the Antichrist reign of terror is about to begin.

Mark of Evil centers on Ethan March, who has now become a Christian after the rapture. Ethan, along with Jimmy Louder, Rivka Reuban and other believers are hiding from the Global Alliance Police, whom are under the influence of the Antichrist.

This is unlike the world we have known, there are now BID-Tag implants in people, robotic police units and flying drone-bots, in which all of these things are used to stop the believers from spreading God's message to others.

Ethan and the rest of the believers know that they can't stop the Antichrist, as everything is foretold in the Bible, but what they can do is help the spread the message of God to others.

Mark of Evil is a fast-paced intelligent Biblical thriller that is set in our not-too-distant future. Some readers may avoid the series as it is a Christian novel, but Mark of Evil is a science-fiction, action adventure that I'm sure many Christian and non-Christian readers will enjoy. Overall, I enjoyed reading Mark of Evil
