Jagger Baird, the ex–Army Ranger introduced in The 13th Tribe (2011), is still coming to terms with the startling discovery that he, like the Tribe he battled in that book, is immortal. But he doesn’t have much time for introspection because along comes a new group of immortals, the Clan. Whereas the Tribe was killing people who rejected God, the Clan is targeting believers who are seeking something called the Judgment Stone, which, if you’re holding it, gives you the ability to see the physical manifestation of the link between God and those who are communicating with him—the Stone acting like a kind of homing beacon, allowing the Clan to zero in on its targets through their prayers. The author explores a little more deeply the themes introduced in the first book; where that book was a thriller with Christian elements, this is more Christian fiction with thriller elements. With a protagonist whose depths are just beginning to surface, it should appeal to the author’s many fans and to any reader who enjoys Christian fiction mixed with traditional action and adventure. --David Pitt
