Quent Wilcox is a perfectly normal young man. He lives in Indiana with his aunt and uncle and plays basketball on his college team. Pretty ordinary. Or at least that's whatheused to think. now he's not so sure. Lately he's had some very disturbing nightmares, though he can't quite remember them when he wakes up. And that's not all he's forgotten. He keeps stumbling across huge gaps in his memory--like what happened to his parents and did he ever have a girlfriend?

What's happening to Quent isn't simple amnesia. He's not only losing his memory, he's gaining someone else's. But whose? What starts as a young man's identity crisis soon turns into much more horrifying as Quent finds that with his new memories come strange,unearthly powers...and grave danger. His bizarre abilities will open the door to conspiracy and lies, to nature and what lies beyond, to the power of the mind---and the darkness of the soul.

Armageddon: The Cosmic Battle of the Ages (Left Behind, Bk 11)
Review Date: 11/30/2005


The scattered Tribulation Force is drawn inexorably toward the Middle East, as are all the armies of the world, when history homes in on the battle of the ages. Druing the last year of the Great Tribulation, safe houses are no longer safe, friends and loved ones must commemorate two lives in one memorial service, and the cast of characters dramatically changes.

By the time of the war of the great day of God the Almighty, homes have been uprooted, new alliances forged, and the globe has become a powder keg of danger.

Except those already in Petra, everyone has been forced to relocate as Antichirst ratchest up the ante in the world's most treacherous game. New love is sparked, recent love is formalized, and old love is aggrieved while millions gather for war.

Who will be left standing when the battle leaves the Tribulation Force on the brink of the end of time and the Glorious Appearing?

Pond House was being repaired by the man who'd taken over the old Calvert estate--a noveau riche upstart by the name of Max Brigstock. Jane found him intriguing, in fact, something about him seemed rather familiar...

from the cover:

"WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THIS HOUSE?"

Ricky's mouth fell open. Hanging from it's toes at the foot of the bed was this weird looking creature with mean little shiny black eyes. A bat!

"WE GOT RID OF YOU HUMANS BEFORE. YOU'RE NOT WANTED IN OUR HOUSE!"

Ricky and his family had just moved in. Why did the bat think this was its house? It's beady little eyes got meaner.

"JUST CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!"

That was the last thing the bat said before it disappeared in a soundless flash of black. Ricky was terrified! A talking bat! He couldn't believe it. But Ricky's problems had just begun. Unless he could convince his mom and dad to move out of their new house, the bat was going to make him very sorry....
