Last week I was able to take part in one of my favorite past times, while actually “blogging” in a round about way. I read two books in 4 days!
I was excited when I came across a launch team request for a pair of scientific fiction books, likened to the Left Behind Series. Instantly I was sold, an avid fan of the Left Behind series I couldn’t wait to dig into this set of books.
by Alexandra & Joyce Swann
In the first book of the series you will meet the main two characters, Karl and Alexander. Karl is in the business of governmental funded genetic studies, and Alexander is interested in starting some scientific studies of his own. The two men have much in common, though there are many secrets intertwined throughout. Alexander has twin sons (Jarrod and Joshua) and Karl has one (Josef), and the three of them are enemies at the time of their meeting. The struggle between the three of them increases as they grow up.
The Fourth Kingdom will keep you turning pages long into the night, and though the scientific data can seem a bit daunting in a few places, I compel you to keep reading. The end will leave you ready to pick up the next book in the series…..

Continuing on in scientific studies in The Force you’ll follow the Sinclair twins’ lives, as well as Josef’s life. The future of the human world as we know it is at stake. Murders occurring throughout the world of the famous and beautiful, and know one can figure out why or how. You’ll follow the quest to end the fight between the Sinclair twins and Josef continues though countries and thousands of miles separate them.
The Force will keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what is waiting at the next turn of the page. Upon reaching the end you will wish there was yet another book in the series upon which you could dig in.
A couple notes….
- These books are perfect for science fiction, Left Behind and Frank Peretti book lovers.
- I would not recommend these books to your teenagers, until you have read them yourself due to the descriptive murders and some sexual references.
