About the Book
When a remote Peruvian village is reduced to ash in seconds, the Shepherds face a horrific question: Is this the work of a man-made weapon of unthinkable power, or is God raining down judgment from above, as some believe?
As the recently installed leader of the Joshua Bravo team, Jedidiah Johnson shifts into covert operation mode to follow rumors of a new energy-based weapon able to incinerate a target―even a human target―with no warning. With the assistance of the CIA, Jed’s team deploys to Hong Kong to extract the Chinese scientist who helped develop the weapon.
What the Shepherds learn from Dr. Zhao confirms their worst fears: The weapon is real and has disappeared from the testing facility where it was held. With help from the Watchers, Jed discovers that Victor, the leader of the Dark Ones, has the weapon and intends to use it to wreak untold damage and destabilize the faith of millions. But as Jed and his team race the clock to find and disable the weapon, Victor begins to unfold secret plans for another attack . . .
And this target is much closer to home.

In My Opinion
The fight intensifies for the Shepherds and the Watchers with a weapon that could destroy them all in Dark Fall.
Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson raise the stakes in the third installment of their series as the Shepherds seek an unseen enemy and the Watchers discover their own strengths.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series with its paramilitary element, the kids who are helping them in a different way, and the spiritual warfare element that harkens to Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness. I appreciate that the authors don’t shy away from the ugliness and determination of evil forces to destroy the light in God’s people. While there are some theological questions around the book, it is a work of fiction, so I can overlook those.
But while this is a fictional story, the destroyer is very real in this world as evidenced by so much hurt, violence, and tragedy seen today. The entire Shepherds series is a good reminder that we must be vigilant to stand firm in our faith and suit up with the full armor of God.
