It begins on a lazy summer day in a small, secluded mountain town named Paradise. But in Paradise, nothing is as it seems.

When a stranger named Marsuvees Black appears and announces he's come to bring hope and grace to Paradise, the town isn't sure how to respond. He offers dazzling love, hope, faith, and fun . . . the kind of fun everyone desires but is too timid to pursue. He knows the unspoken secrets of each person's heart--and has the power to grant them.

Tucked deep in the nearby canyons is a monastery long hidden from the world. Within its walls is power beyond comprehension. Yet that power is quickly slipping out of control.

As dark clouds and sandstorms shut Paradise off from the rest of the world, the unthinkable happens. Readers will be shocked as they discover the true secrets of this sleepy town. The ultimate collision between good and evil begins January 2006 . . . with Showdown.

Very disappointed

  • Book Rating: 1/5

Dekker has written some incredible books, but about 1/3 of the way into this one it was obvious exactly what was going to happen. This reads like religious tract and not a book. Like an idiot, I stayed with it all the way to the end and it was a complete waste of time. Read the New Testament if you want a more compelling storyline......this was horrible.
