#BookReview: The Defiance by @lauragallier

Synopsis: Four months after the deadly overlord, Molek, has been banished beyond the city limits of Masonville, Texas, Owen Edmonds' crucial mission to save lives escalates when seven Cosmic Rulers of darkness close in to decimate his town. With the backing of mighty Watchmen, Owen works to expose and counteract the demonic invaders' schemes, but his efforts are met with strong resistance, especially as powers of witchcraft are loosed against him. Owen finds the strength to persevere, even as the stakes rise to an all-time high, but it's then that he and the love of his life, Ray Anne, are both confronted by their most dreaded, longstanding fears--a strategic move by the enemy. As the battle between good and evil culminates in an epic standoff, Owen and Ray Anne must make the decision of a lifetime: will they face their fears or run? 


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: First off I am not Christian, I am so far from being Christian that I don't even know how to describe it.  So keep that in mind.  But that being said I enjoyed this story so much. This battle of good vs. evil reminded me of things like The Stand.  I enjoyed the bits of Scripture in the story. I think that those who are not Christian might enjoy this one but those who are will most likely extremely enjoy it. 

The battle between heaven and hell continues in this final installment of the Delusion trilogy.

It’s been four months since Owen witnessed an occult human trafficking auction on his property, and the Molek, Lord of the Dead, was taken away by the protective and benevolent Watchmen. Owen is desperate to know how he can drive the remaining evil presence out of Masonville for good. Along with Ray Anne, his devoted girlfriend, he now is attempting to root it out and determine where the truth lies―all while being pursued by mysterious forces and confronting old foes. Many new and frightening underworld creatures are introduced in great detail, and each embodies an aspect of spiritual warfare that Owen must learn to navigate. In the process, Owen discovers Molek’s plan to sacrifice 13 targets in town, and he races to save the potential victims along with the souls of everyone in Masonville, including people he loves dearly. The members of a considerable cast of spirits, demons, and heavenly guardians seem to come and go when it’s convenient to the plot but do little to advance a cohesive story; however, the power of faithful prayer and the ability of light to triumph over darkness are themes throughout and imbue the novel with a sense of hope. Most characters are assumed White.
