Format: Paperback
Unholy Empire is the second book of a trilogy that follows the story of how Satan forfeited his place in Heaven--and took a third of the "Host" fellow angels with him.
I thought that I came across this fine book by accident, however,
I am not so sure that God did not lead me to it. The first book is based on what may have actually happened in Heaven during those first days of creation.
The first book totally drew me into the story, and at times I felt as if I was not reading a fictional account on what may have
transpired, but that I was given a ring-side seat to witness the events as they actually took place.
I was hopeful that the second book would live up to its predecessor. I was not disappointed; the second book was fantastic!!. I read through it in a couple of days, the author
D. Brian Shafer has really done his homework, he weaves the story with imagination, creativity, humor and insight.
I must admit that I have not been up on reading the Old Testament in quite a while, however, after reading "Unholy Empire" my interest for reading the Old Testament has been increased.
Also, as a fringe benefit, my walk with God and how I relate to Him has deepened. It has put this verse in a new light for me...
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Ephesians 6:12 NIV
I cannot recommend this book enough; it is a work of art. And it just may change your life...

Format: Paperback
This, D. Brian Shafer's second novel in the series, was just as intense and insightful as book one. He gives us a behind the scenes look at how the forces of darkness would have most likely viewed the events of the early Old Testament from Adam and Eve to the death of Moses. It shows how they would have been working through people to try to stop God's promise of the Seed coming through the line of Abraham.

There were a few things I wish the author would have mentioned to clear up a few Biblical misconceptions that people have, but these are just an aside, as the amount of information covered was so vast that these little points were probably not viewed as important. One is that in Genesis, chapter seven, Noah took seven pairs of clean animals (by their sevens, male and female), and only one pair of the unclean animals. Even with the alternate interpretation, at least seven (three pairs and one extra) of the clean animals were taken aboard. The second thing that people gloss over is the manna in the desert. Most people do not realize that God gave them manna (bread from heaven) in the morning, but he also gave them meat (quails) to eat every evening. Read Exodus, chapter sixteen.

Now to what I learned from this book. In the section where Moses returns with the ten commandents, Mr. Shafer points out something that I had forgotten. The fact that Moses melted down the golden calf and then ground it to dust, placed it in the water, then made the people drink it. I think he took a bit of fictional license with Moses using an axe to destroy the golden calf, as Exodus chapter thrity-two just says he burned it. Maybe there is another Biblical reference I missed.

Great pick up from the first book--Exile of Lucifer. If you haven't read it you need to read it first. Shafer deals with the massive search and destroy mission carred out by Satan and his troops as they try to stop God's plan of redemption through Israel. Great insight into spiritual warfare and how the enemy operates in the affairs of men and women. I highly recommend it!

It is a great series to read, keeps you, on the edge of your seat. It is a must to read. When you order book 1, just go ahead and order book 2-5. You won't regret it. The author makes it interesting reading about the three archangels beginning. Also how Lucifer,turned against God ,and mankind. Excellent choice, to read.

Another great book by this author. Easy to read and understand. Couldn't put this book down because of the story line and using the Bible as a reference. So fits what is going on in the world today. Evil can and does take away from people what is really important and that is God in our lives. Couldn't wait to read more by this author.

Why isn't this book availible in the kindle store? All the other books in the series are, except this one, which is extremely strange. I enjoyed the first one and I'm going to order this regardless of what format it's on because so far I enjoy the series.

In this Book 2 of 5, of the "Chronicles of the Host" Series, the first being: 'The Exile of Lucifer', the warfare between angels and demons shifts from the Heavenly to the earthly realm. And so, Lucifer - the once upon a time Heavenly Worship Leader, now called satan by his fallen name, establishes an 'UNHOLY EMPIRE' on earth after Adam and Eve commited the first sin, within the Garden of Eden. He stratigically places rulers, powers and principalities here on earth to deceive mankind and claim worship for himself, rather than allowing humans which were created by God, to worship Him. The once, glorious angels were now hideous to look at, as they were transformed into demons. Their nature was rebellious and evil, full of malicious wickedness against the Lord. And because mankind was created in the image of God, satan hated them because they represented and reminded him, of the Lord. So, he did everything possible to make humans distracted, detestful and devoid of a personal relationship with their Creator. This second book starts out in the Garden of Eden and takes you through the entrance of Canaan, the land of milk and honey, and depicts all the trials and tribulations that satan put in their path, to destroy 'The Seed' and their Salvation, that was to come from the lineage of Israel. Had the Lord not intervened with His angels and especially with Michael the Archangel, satan would have succeeded. Very easy and understandable reading and very interesting. Nina
