The End Continues
Captain Jesse Christenson and Meryn O’Rielly’s story picks up where book one, The End Begins, left off. Ms. Davison continues the story of their lives, and budding romance. But that doesn’t mean all is well. As Jesse’s love for God and for Meryn deepens, so, it seems, does the Canadian government’s determination to wipe out Christianity. Jesse’s secret must remain exactly that if he is to be at all effective in doing what he feels God is leading him to do. The danger of being found out is the death sentence.
The scripture verse quoted from Revelation 12:7 right before the first chapter sets the theme for the novel. Much as we would like to believe this novel series is purely a work of fiction, Ms. Davison’s message of the possible event of the last days comes through as plausible. The events which Jesse, Meryn and their friends experience are portrayed in such as way as to make the reader think of what their reactions to this type of persecution might be.
Ms Davison has skilfully woven the second of the trilogy into the first and continues to build the mystery and suspense surrounding Jesse and Meryn. Having said that, I must add that reading the second without first having read The End Begins, will leave gaping holes and unanswered questions for the reader. This is not a stand-alone book but must be read as part of the trilogy. The surprising ending leaves one waiting for the third installment.
