Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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

More About the Author

I've been writing since before I could drive. Short stories, investigative exposes, celebrity profiles, editorials, business columns, radio dramas, screenplays--you name it. For the last few years, I've focused on novels. I'm the author of the thrillers "Comes a Horseman," "Germ," "Deadfall," "Deadlock," "The 13th Tribe," and the young adult series Dreamhouse Kings--"House of Dark Shadows," "Watcher in the Woods," "Gatekeepers," "Timescape," "Whirlwind," and "Frenzy."

Several of my books have been sold or optioned by Hollywood producers. All of them are in various stages of production. I'm also working on an original screenplay with Andrew Davis (director of "The Fugitive" and "The Guardian). I wrote the screenplay for Ted Dekker's "Blessed Child." My short story "Kill Zone" appears in the James Patterson-edited anthology "Thriller," and my essay on Thomas Perry's "The Butcher's Boy" can be found in the anthology "Thriller: 100 Must Reads."

The Judgment Stone picks up shortly after the events of The 13th Tribe. Jaggar has returned as head of security to St. Catherine's Monastery in Egypt. Owen is in an isolated area of Russia providing medical care to children in extreme poverty. Nevaeh and the remainder of the tribe are trying to rebuild and reorganize after their last mission. But in the midst of each group settling back into routine, there enters another group of immortals--the Clan. This faction of six received their immortality at the same time as the tribe, but instead of trying to gain God's favor, their goal is to grieve God. After 3500 years of practice, they've honed their skill and are more than willing to carry out reprehensible missions to achieve their goal. Their sights are now set squarely on St. Catherine's Monastery with the intent of recovering a truly remarkable artifact--a piece from the original 10 commandment tablets. This stone gives those who hold it the ability to see the spiritual realm and in the hands of Bale and his clan of immortals, the opportunities to grieve God are endless.

Meanwhile, Nevaeh is obsessed with knowing the `secret' Beth imparted to Ben before he died. So desperate for God's forgiveness, she makes plans to kidnap Beth in order to talk to her and to learn the secret to Ben's redemption. With Jaggar chasing the Clan, Beth and Tyler are left to defend themselves against the Tribe who are still willing to demolish anything which stands in their way of redemption. Action packed, full of adventure, and a spectacular ending, The Judgment Stone is a great second installment to the Immortal Files series.

I am imagination challenged, and as a result it's a rare book that can actually spark my imagination so that I can think of stories for the characters.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Part of me loved this book - the spiritual depth of the conversations, the look into the spirit realm and how it interacts with our lives, the love of family, the power of God's intervention when we pray and especially the maturity of Robert's insight into human nature. However the story lagged too much. What could have easily been a page-turning thriller became bogged down with scenes that hardly moved - they just crawled. And I'm not talking about the conversational parts but the action scenes. One scene lasted almost the entire book. I found myself constantly saying out loud "get on with it." The writing was good but the storytelling needed a kick in the pants.

If you have not read book one The 13th Tribe (An Immortal Files Novel) I suggest reading it first. It's a good book so you'll be happy you read it.

I downloaded the audio version of this book because I had a road trip to make and found it to be interesting. The reader had a good speaking voice but I found he whining way to much. I would not have translated hardened men as being whiny. It did make my drive go by quicker though.

Overall, even with the not-so-glowing comments, I found the book very much worth reading. The overall plot and storyline are very interesting, the characters are three dimensional and the spiritual insights are deep and encouraging.

Recommended.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the home page. I find in doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.

Format: Paperback
The Judgment Stone, by Robert Liparulo, is the 2nd book in the Immortal Files series, after The 13th Tribe. It manages to take the thrills, ideas, questions, and energy of the first book and take it up a notch.

Jagger Baird is coming to terms with the fact that he is an immortal. As he and his wife, Beth, and son, Tyler, are beginning to get past the Tribe's attack on them, it all begins to happen again. This time it begins when an archaeologist at the monastery/sacred site where they live discovers a piece of the original 10 Commandments, the ones Moses broke. Touching the Stone lets a person see into the spiritual realm, with angels and demons all around us, and prayers in the form of beams of light showing a person's connection to God. A wonderful discovery and treasure, it is quickly taken by yet another group of immortals, known as the Clan.

Unlike the Tribe, the Clan has no wish to please God, end their lives, and get to Heaven. They want to hurt and grieve God, and the Stone will allow their leader, Bale, a clear view of where he can do the most damage. As the carnage begins, Jagger and Owen try to track the Clan and take back the Judgment (God) Stone.

Interspersed with this story thread is the story of Neveah and the rest of the Tribe as they try to kidnap Beth (again) in order to discover the secret to reconciling with God. They begin an attack on the monastery, causing Beth, Tyler, and the monks to play a deadly game of hide and seek.

The characterization is great, particularly the contrast between Owen and Jagger. Beth and Tyler form a solid spiritual backbone for Jagger to lean on. Bale and the rest of the Clan are vividly described, and radiate pure evil.
