Editorial Reviews


 “Greg Mitchell’s storytelling mixes the modern pace and stripped-down narrative of a Ted Dekker with the spiritual tensions of a Frank Peretti. Enemies of the Cross is an imaginative, sobering page-turner.” —Eric Wilson, New York Times best-selling author of Fireproof, Valley of Bones, and One Step Away

“Greg Mitchell once again takes us on an unforgettable journey through the realm of evil and reminds us that faith and courage shine brightest in the blackest night.”—Alton Gansky, Christy Award finalist, Angel Award winner, and author of Angel and Enoch

Looking for a really great series of books guaranteed to leave you wanting to sleep with the light on, but written by an extremely talented Christian author? Then look no further than The Coming Trilogy Series by Greg Mitchell.

I got hooked on this trilogy after being a huge fan of such talented writers like Ted Dekker and Stephen King. You know the kinds of books that make you jump at noises while you're reading it, but it's so great you can't put it down?

This series is about the Bogeyman or as he is also known as The Strange Man. A presence so evil that he's been staking his claim in the small town of Greensboro since its introduction. That is where the legends and myths came from surrounding late night stories around the campfire, geared to scare you. Only this time, the Bogeyman is real and you're biggest downfall is believing he doesn't exist.

Picking up where the first book left off, Enemies of the Cross continues to struggle to understand what is happening to the small town of Greensboro. Now that a horrible murder has taken place and the town believes that the killer has been caught and is now awaiting his final trial for the death penalty, Pastor Jeff Weldon believes that his brother Dras is innocent. However he feels more than responsible. When Dras came to him that fateful night telling him of the Strange Man and the evil running the town, he didn't believe him. Now Jeff feels that he has to prove his brothers innocence.

Jeff's faith in God is about to be put to the final test as the evil surrounding the town realizes that he stands in the way. They aren't about to let their plans to control the town and bring about the Dark Hour be revealed by Jeff's persistent investigation.

After reading The Strange Man earlier this year, and its shocking ending, I was looking forward to Enemies of the Cross and surprised by some of the things/twists in it.

Greensboro is a creepy town and while I didn't find myself scared that often, there were a few times (especially when by a window) that I found myself somewhat creeped out (imagining if I were to all of the sudden start hearing some tapping on the glass).

While the first book in The Coming Evil trilogy dealt more with Dras Weldon, Enemies of the Cross centers more around his brother, Jeff. I found it really interesting to get to know the characters and more of what has been happening in the town.

There were a couple of things I didn't personally care for - one being how Jeff heard God talking to him in his head (page 285).

Enemies of the Cross dealt a lot with the spiritual realm (i.e. demons, angels), which I found interesting and, at times, bizarre (in a good way).

Overall, Enemies of the Cross was a good semi-suspenseful read that I liked. If you enjoy creepy and/or books dealing with demons/spiritual warfare, I think you might like this book as well... although you might want to read book one first because this book picks up right where The Strange Man left off. I'm looking forward to book three, to see how this trilogy concludes. :)

First this is the second book in three. Three will be out next year, so you will not be left wondering you will get the whole complete series. This is a Horror novel written by a christian man. I want to say that because most Christian horror is well, NOT HORROR! Its disney type horror , as frightening and gripping as Casper. This was not like that I say with all seriousness that author Greg Mitchell holds his own against writers like John Saul or Peter Straub. While these authors have more published work , I believe mr Mitchell is just getting started. His story takes you back to that first monster under your bed or in your closet or the darkest corner of your bed room. It is there in the dark that the Boogieman is real. And all those stories that you grew up hearing and then tossing aside as childish well, There is always something in the Dark watching wether you believed in it or not. And Greg reminds us of that and the deeper questions of what is real and if you say you believe ..do you really? Because The devi..oops The Boogieman he doesn't care. Great book can't wait for part 3.

The Strange Man was downright eery.
This... to put plainly, was immensely frightening! But it was worth the scare to know how far God would go to protect His Own.
The good news is, Dras is alive. The bad news, while he's in jail, you have to put up with his obsessive brother, Jeff, who's become so obsessed with finding out the truth of what happened to Dras that he doesn't notice what's happenin to those around him in his life.
Okay, not only those who mattered to Jeff in a personally good way, but also the village bigmouths, like Earl, who headed a hunt to find Lindsey's killer in The Strange Man, has a bigger role with a bigger mouth. Flat-out condemning Christianity, first by the use of Dras with the false conviction of being called a killer (if you read the first one, it's no spoiler), then going further into insults and name-calling.
Not only that, but Jeff also calling out each denomination's materialistic hypocrisy with what they teach then a turnaround with what they publicly say outside church walls.
Then Rosalyn with how she scathingly condemns the whole church town of Greensboro for preaching love, love, then spewing extreme hate toward Dras.
As if that weren't enough for a dark tale (what Christian these days hate being called hypocritical if they don't want to believe it, let alone acknowledge it?), there's also the Strange Man himself, a truly bizarre and extremely evil presence among people, tempting people with half-truths and tempting lies, along with a whole gang of creatures to do things at his whim.
There are mysteries to figure out, betrayals that slap your face hard, yet there's also hope that's still prevalent.
Evil is shown with no sugarcoating, but not full-out gratuitous, either. So, don't worry, nothing R-rated here.
