A familiar place, a supernatural conflict—it could happen anywhere.
Two years after the most devastating loss of his life, Jones O’Brian has barely recovered when a series of fires, accompanied by peculiar noises, signal that something dark and unsettling is encroaching on his community. Sheriff Bob Cable, once Jones’ high school football coach, asks for his help investigating the occurrences. Working with Cable and Deputy Abby Solomon, the woman who shared his loss, Jones discovers that people have disappeared, rural properties and town businesses have quietly changed hands and strange newcomers have moved to his southern Illinois hometown. With warrior angel Arrow in Jones’ corner, bridging the divide between unseen and seen realms, Jones revisits the terrain of his childhood to uncover an evil battle plan to take over the region—and beyond. It seems that in this world, what we can’t see can be more awesome—and more terrifyingly real—than what we can see. 

My Impressions:

I adore books about spiritual warfare. Maybe because I feel its a topic so many people avoid, but it is an important topic. This book reminded me of Chuck Blacks War of the Realms series. In Jone's Corner there is a battle between good and evil going on and no one seems to be aware of it but Jones. A man with a strong faith, rooted in God and reliant upon Him in times of trials and chaos. Which is a good thing since his small town is under a vicious attack by someone or something that is trying to turn the towns residents against each other and instill fear and panic throughout this small community. 

 There are parts of the book where I thought the author could have dug a little bit deeper to bring out some more raw emotions, such as when Jone's wife passed, but overall the characters were nicely developed and easy to relate to. I was blown away by the ending and the use of Prayer to defeat the enemy. Very powerful. I would easily recommend this book.
