Mark of Evil by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall

Mark of Evil (The End Series, #4)

Book Description

Economies have fallen, freedom has been suppressed, and peace is a distant memory. The world is falling apart. Joshua Jordan’s protégé Ethan March, along with Jimmy Louder and Rivka Reuban have been left behind in a world that is rapidly coming under the complete influence of the Antichrist.
Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, with BID-Tag implants, robotic police units, and drone-bots flying overhead . . . all designed to control and dominate those who resist the Antichrist’s reign of evil. As Biblical prophecy is fulfilled each new day, Ethan and the others in the Remnant struggle to eat, to procure necessary goods, and to avoid the Global Alliance---in short, to survive.
But when the forces of evil attempt to pervert the world’s most powerful information system to their own sinister ends, eliminating everyone who gets in their way, it’s up to Ethan and the Remnant to subvert their dark ambitions. From New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye, creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind books, and Craig Parshall, Mark of Evil is the final thrilling chapter in The End series.
With high-tech thrills against a background of prophetic events that seem to leap from today’s news, this is the story of global tribulations bringing the world one step closer to the reign of the Antichrist and the return of Jesus Christ in glory.

My Take:  This is the last book in this series.  I had listened to the first two book in this series on audio but I had not read or listened to the third one so I was alittle lost for the first couple of  chapters so it is not necessary to read the first ones to enjoy this book.  These books are not the Left behind books.  This book has alot more technology and it has alot of characters.  To be perfectly honest I struggled getting into this series because I loved the Left Behind series and I had a hard time not comparing it to the other series.  This series does have it's pros.  The way the rapture has already occurred and to buy or sell you must have the tags embedded.  This book did have turning the pages to see what was going to happen and who was going to live and who was going to die (and some of my favorite characters don't make it to the end).  I enjoyed Left Behind better but this series did entertain me and I would recommend it to others but I would read this series before Left Behind if you can.  

I received a review copy from BookLook Blogging program in exchange for my honest review.
