Light of the Last
Chuck Black
Multnomah

After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter didn’t just regain his sight. He now sees what others can’t imagine–an entire spiritual realm of mighty beings at war. 
 
Forget the gift, Drew just wants his life back. Part of that involves Sydney Carlyle, a woman he is inexplicably drawn to. When he’s offered the chance to become a CIA agent, it seems the way to redeem his past. The only problem–his visions of the supernatural realm are increasing in frequency. 
 
It’s up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving Drew. Validus now knows that the young man is at the epicenter of a global spiritual war, and the angels must use a millennia of battle experience keep Drew alive, for the Fallen want him dead.
 
Surrounded by spiritual warriors and targeted by demons, Drew’s faced with an impossible decision that will forever alter the destiny of America...and his own soul.

     I first started reading these books because, even though they're not my normal reading material, I did enjoy Chuck Black's fantasy series. I also thought my brothers might like this series as well.

     This book is definitely one you'll want to read in order in the series, and it introduced several new characters. Actually, though it has been some time since I read the previous books, I think this book might be my favorite in the series. I admit that I was a little disappointed in that *SPOILER* the books seemed to be building up the fact that the warfare was about the last days, when it turned out to be about averting a major disaster in America. There was more to it than that, but it just seemed like a decrease in severity, even though the disaster would have been huge and impactful normally.*END OF SPOILER*

     While I'm not sure I agree with all of the interpretations of spiritual warfare and Biblical application, I do appreciate Black's handling of it, in both in his author's note at the beginning and the pages in the back full of Bible verses to supplement the story.

     So, while it's not particularly my type of book, it is exciting and action-packed and does an admirable job of combining a political thriller with a spiritual message.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
