Light of the Last Wars of the Realm, Book 3

To Fight What Others Can’t You Must See What Others Don’t

After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter didn’t just regain his sight. He now sees what others can’t imagine–an entire spiritual realm of mighty beings at war.

Forget the gift, Drew just wants his life back. Part of that involves Sydney Carlyle, a woman he is inexplicably drawn to. When he’s offered the chance to become a CIA agent, it seems the way to redeem his past. The only problem–his visions of the supernatural realm are increasing in frequency.

It’s up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving Drew. Validus now knows that the young man is at the epicenter of a global spiritual war, and the angels must use a millennia of battle experience keep Drew alive, for the Fallen want him dead.

Surrounded by spiritual warriors and targeted by demons, Drew’s faced with an impossible decision that will forever alter the destiny of America...and his own soul.

My Impressions: 

This is the last book in the War of the Realm series and I have seriously loved every last book. Walking with Drew, Sydney, and Jake through each of their own emotional and spiritual journey's has been amazing. I really love the way the author brings about the light and darkness that resides in us and around us on a daily basis, along with our need to realize the spiritual warfare that is constantly taking place for our hearts and souls. Plus, the technology, weapons and mad fighting skills in each one of these books have been mind blowing. I especially drooled over Drew's jacket and glasses with "Alice" as his interface. Really cool technology that I wish I had myself. 

I am blown away by the progression of this series. The first book in  the series starts out with Drew and Ben's recreated light experiment that at first leaves Drew blind, but as his sight returns Drew gains the ability to see "light and dark invaders". The second book digs deeper into Validus and his band of angels. When we reach this last book in the series we have Drew and Validus working side by side against the "dark invaders".
I really don't want to say too much more about the books and give anything away as to not take away from the readers. I will say that this is a series I highly recommend for teens and adults. It would also make a great book club series and an excellent source for youth group leader to read and maybe hand out to some kids who are struggling with acceptance of Christ.
