While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

A New Apocalyptic Series
With a Hip And Up To Date Story-line
STORY LINE TORMENTED DREAMS:
This is the first book in the Missed The Mark Series. A new intense and riveting end times series. In Tormented Dreams, author Adrienna Trurner created an emotional apocalyptic Christian novel. Roya and Solomon Whitmore, married and much in love, find themselves facing the end of days found in Revelations and Daniel. Solomon, a successful business man, is firm in his Christian faith. He is a music producer, video producer, director, and actor. Because of his fame and the many women which flock around him, Roya has a tough time with security issues within her marriage. Also, Roya is dreaming prophetically, will these dreams come true? What does the future hold for Roya, Solomon and their five children?
Solomon and Roya become active in the ACC, Alliance for Crusaders of Christ, spreading the word in closed groups of the coming Anti-Christ. Chipping is eminent as the one world government is gathering forces. Realizing without the soul damning chip, they will no longer be allowed to buy or sell the necessities of life, ACC is preparing for the tribulation. Consequently, the ACC spreads the word, stores essentials, and readies for the end times.
Can Roya overcome her insecurities, obey God's will, and become a solider of the last days? Can their marriage survive her suspicion and accusations? What part do their children hold in this coming world? Will Solomon be able to protect his family?
Come and have your eyes opened to the end times prophecy revealed in an entertaining novel. My apocalyptic Christian novel review of Tormented Dreams, book one of the Missed The Mark Series follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Although similar to the Left Behind Series, the Miss The Mark Series stands on it own merits, story-line, characters, and slant on the end times. Ms. Turner created a more upbeat and hip story-line which young and mature readers will relate.
Turner developed each of her character to their full potential. I found them believable and real. As a result, I wanted to shake Roya at time for her disrespect and unbelief in Solomon, and tell her mother to grow-up and get a job. Turner created real situations with real emotions in this novel.
The pacing of Tormented Dreams was steady and smooth without lagging or blogging down. Turner grabs the reader in the first paragraphs and does not let go until the last page. I wanted to start the next book immediately, as I became invested in these characters and the story-line.
Finally, in-concluding my apocalyptic Christian novel review of Tormented Dreams, I found this a solid well written story; written with realism and believability. Furthermore, this novel will cause the reader to think, ponder, and just maybe, grab the Bible to read the Word. With a hip and up to date story-line, this novel will appeal to both the younger audiences as well as the more mature.
TORMENTED DREAMS, RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
In addition, I gave this novel 4 stars. Written by a talented author, I found the story-line intense and thought-provoking. I look forward to book 2 of this series.
FINALLY PLEASE NOTE:
Additionally, I received this book from the author and chose to voluntarily review the book with an honest apocalyptic Christian novel review.
Lastly, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinion. Without a doubt, the ARC did not affect my voluntary apocalyptic Christian novel review.
