Mark of Evil by Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall

Economies have fallen, freedom has been suppressed, and peace is a distant memory. The world is falling apart. Joshua Jordan’s protégé Ethan March, along with Jimmy Louder and Rivka Reuban have been left behind in a world that is rapidly coming under the complete influence of the Antichrist.
Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, with BID-Tag implants, robotic police units, and drone-bots flying overhead . . . all designed to control and dominate those who resist the Antichrist’s reign of evil. As Biblical prophecy is fulfilled each new day, Ethan and the others in the Remnant struggle to eat, to procure necessary goods, and to avoid the Global Alliance---in short, to survive.
But when the forces of evil attempt to pervert the world’s most powerful information system to their own sinister ends, eliminating everyone who gets in their way, it’s up to Ethan and the Remnant to subvert their dark ambitions. From New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye, creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind books, and Craig Parshall, Mark of Evil is the final thrilling chapter in The End series.
With high-tech thrills against a background of prophetic events that seem to leap from today’s news, this is the story of global tribulations bringing the world one step closer to the reign of the Antichrist and the return of Jesus Christ in glory.

MY REVIEW-This is a book I had mixed feelings about. I have read books by both authors separately and loved them. Yet with this novel, written by both Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall, I didn't get that same feeling. The book in and of itself was good, but I could not get into it. I seriously took two month to read the entire novel, and that is very odd for me! I normally read a book in a couple days. While this one dragged on and on.

The premise of the story is a remnant of believers who are struggling to survive after the Rapture. It reminded me of a Left Behind style story mixed in with some other books I have read about the end times. The storyline was just slow overall. I am someone who loves suspense novels but I also read other slower paced books so I am not saying this because it is slower paced. I just could not get into it no matter how hard I tried. This may be a book that someone else devours in one sitting, but not my cup of tea. There was nothing wrong with the book at all, just me:)
