This review is going to cover all three books. I will attempt to avoid any spoilers but I’m not promising anything. I downloaded all three books to my kindle with the accompanying audible book and read all three in less than a week. Man I love kindle unlimited.

I learned of this book series through the author’s (Mark Goodwin) podcast, prepper recon. His worldview is very similar to mine with some minor differences and I knew that would be reflected in this series. As a fellow prepper I decided to support Mark by buying and reading the books. I’m glad I did.

I’ll review each book separately below.

Book 1: Conspiracy

The book, in fact the series, follows two groups of people, starting off as separate people/families and merging. The main characters are Noah Parker and his family and a guy named Everett and his friends. Noah is a teacher that gets attested for mentioning creationism in the classroom. Everett is an analyst for the CIA. Without spoiling the plot let’s just say the book is riveting.

I found it hard to put this book down. I couldn’t help seeing all the similarities between what was written and what is currently happening in America. I absolutely love how Mark integrated so much information into the text. You could give these books to someone who loves to read but is totally off the fence to prepping who you want to see on board. To those of us already in the know there isn’t a whole lot of new information but remember this is “fiction”. There were a few things mentioned however that I haven’t thought of. This is always good.

What I like best about prepper “fiction” is the scenario playing you can run through your head. It’s almost like playing a game of Conflicted. Everybody sees things different. Different priorities, different ideas, different ways of going about things. Combine them all and you have a think tank of sorts.

There are only 2 things I didn’t like about the book. The gentle indoctrination of tithing and the pretribulation rapture heresy (which resolves in the third book, sort of) are the first. I believe Jesus did away with the Levitical tithing system on the cross and instituted free will giving as found 2 Corinthians 9:7 “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give ; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver“. I also believe the rapture is posttribulation and prewrath. Pretribulation believers can’t seem to separate tribulation and wrath. With all that said we have the freedom to believe what we all want to believe.

The other thing that bugs me is the strong Christian overtones. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a bible believing Christian but sharing a book like this with my unbelieving friends won’t go over well. I don’t mind a Christian theme but it’s a little overpowering. A warning to unbelieving friends would be appropriate before lending. Again, we have that freedom, at least for now… Which brings me to…..

Book 2: Persecution

In this book Christianity is all but outlawed. There is a barrage of false flag attacks in America and martial law is declared. Concurrently this is blamed on a patriotic Christian group. Since they are now suspected terrorists, Christians are rounded up in FEMA camps that were conveniently set up BEFORE the attacks. Big surprise there. The two groups bug out and one of them leads a rescue mission of the detainees. The mission is “successful” but one of them is killed and one wounded. No more spoilers, you’ll have to read it yourself. Tensions are high. The other group strikes it very lucky even though some of them had a run in with post apocalypse thugs.

It’s action packed and again hard to put down. I read this book in 1 day and started the third right after it. This book will bring tears to your eyes if you are at all sentimental and maybe even if your aren’t.

Like the first book tithing is mentioned AGAIN! Really Mark? Is your money grubbing pastor the coauthor? I am glad however that the 501c3 issue was brought up. It’s amazing how much info can be crammed into the text.

Moving on….

Book 3: Perdition

For some reason the audible book and kindle book refused to sync. This was not a problem with books 1 and 2. Either way it was read in less than a day.

In this book the anti-Christ comes to power and the one world religion/currency etc is also put into effect.

Battles are had, alliances form and the rapture happens. This book is equally as intriguing as the others but of course there is more heresy at the end. I’ll get to that in a bit.

The very ending with the 3 people (that’s all I’m saying, don’t want to ruin it) is an extremely far fetched fantasy especially because of where the elder person is suppose to be at this time during the tribulation.

The timing of the rapture is much more accurate than what was presented in book 1 though still off by a bit. To Mark’s credit he mentions this in the afterward.

The heresy I mentioned is that people who heard the truth before the rapture can still get saved after the rapture. People will get saved, no doubt, but not those who had the chance before the rapture. The scripture is painfully clear that there will be strong delusion sent to those people and they will take the mark. 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 says “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” The setting is after the anti Christ comes to power and before the rapture which is immediately preceded by the wrath. It effectively says if you denied me before the rapture you will deny me after. It’s tough but it’s God’s Word NOT mine.

Then there’s my other pet peeve, the whole living in sin fallacy. Once you have sex YOU ARE MARRIED BIBLICALLY. 1 Corinthians 6:16 says “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.” But, enough of that, you’re free to believe what you want to believe. Praise God tithing was not mentioned in this book.

In conclusion the only issues I have with this series are doctrinal. The books themselves are awesome, full of action, suspense and the occasional plot twist. They will keep your attention. A definite must buy for a Christian prepper or non Christian also. There are tons of ideas and scenarios that will leave your brain thinking for months to come.

Highly recommend!
