The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet, Lori Wagner

I received this e-book free from for my honest review of this e-book.

Book Description
An epic tale of good and evil based on the four horsemen of the Apocalypse found in Revelation.

Using the four horsemen of the Apocalypse to symbolize the four Gospels, four transcendentals, and four forces of the universe (air, water, earth, and fire), Sweet and Wagner weave a fast-paced, end-times tale of good vs. evil and the promise of a new dawn for humanity.

Set in 2048, when planet Earth is suffering from the damaging effects of years of misuse and abuse, cultural history professor Paul Binder receives a mysterious letter that leads him to examine a lost 2nd-century Diatessaron manuscript. Ancient prophecies, cryptic letters, and strange events set him on a course to uncover the missing clues that could lead humanity into a new age. Layered with forgotten symbolism from the ancient, Jewish, and Christian traditions, the novel is a type of engaged fiction in which the main character's lost journal serves as a guide to the reader in interpreting clues and understanding the novel's conclusion.

The Seraph Seal is a fast paced, can't put down story. It takes place in 2048 on Earth where it has suffered irreversible damage from years of abuse and a President that is corrupt. Based on the book of Revelations, 4 horsemen, and the Apocalypse. It gives a realistic view of the end of the world. This story was very hard to put down, I found myself reading into the wee hours of the night. The characters are real and totally relatable. It's a book that is a mix of fact and fiction. Very well researched and I found easy to understand. Gave me a deeper understanding of the Book of Revelations and what that could look like. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thriller, suspense, and history books. Look forward to reading more books by these 2 authors.
