Persian Betrayal by Terry Brennan: Book Review, Tour, and Giveaway with ReadwithAudra
|About the book|
|How much can Brian Mullaney risk to serve God and save lives—without losing his own?|
DSS Regional Security Officer Brian Mullaney has been tasked with an incredibly dangerous mission. When a synagogue in Jerusalem is destroyed by an explosion, burying the second key prophecy Mullaney is hunting—and the deadly box that protects it—the answers he desperately needs are also crushed. How can he discover the meaning of the centuries-old prophecy now? Why are he and the ambassador he’s assigned to protect being targeted? And is there any way this lone man can thwart a nuclear arms race between three ascendant empires of the past?
An otherworldly servant of evil known only as the Turk is maneuvering all three nations into an intricate dance designed to undermine prophecy about the end times. And he won’t let Mullaney or anyone else get in his way.
Wounded in a bloody shoot-out, pressured by his wife to come home, and mourning the death of his best friend, Mullaney doesn’t need a powerful enemy. Who is he to save the Ishmael Covenant, the treaty promising peace in the Middle East? Despite angelic intervention, Mullaney wants nothing to do with his final assignment. But without him, evil will win the ultimate struggle . . . and humankind will have no hope left.

|What others are saying|
|“A fantastic combination of thriller, historical conspiracy, biblical prophecy and Middle Eastern complexity—and you’re never sure where the line is drawn between fact and fiction.”|
~ Ian Acheson, author of Angelguard
“This roller-coaster thrill-ride will keep readers breathless all the way to a nail-biting cliff-hanger … please don’t keep us waiting for the final resolution of this exciting thriller trilogy.”
~ Jeanette Windle, award-winning author of CrossFire, Veiled Freedom, and Freedom’s Stand
There is so much going on in this book. Just when I think I’m getting a handle on what’s happening, someone else shows up and unbalances everything. Intricately detailed and well-developed plot keep the story moving and the characters on their toes.
Poor Brian, though. He’s dancing to a beat he doesn’t fully understand, but he does a marvelous job of learning the steps. Those were some of my favorite parts of the book.
There’s a sinister darkness throughout the pages, but there’s hope too. I enjoyed how Terry Brennan began including more about the angels in Persian Betrayal.
He also does a fantastic job of summing up book one, Ishmael Covenant, but I would recommend you read that book first so you can have the full scope of what is happening.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
