Theme: Whatever life throw your way, If you allow God to take control you can overcome it. It dosen't matter what you have done, he can use you. The authors wants readers to read about a church that embraces and uses the power, authority and dominion that Jesus died on the cross to restore back  to the church. She wanted readers to believe that their are churches that don't stand for shenanigans in God's house.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Book Aesthetics- The book cover displays a couple which could be one of the sisters and the man they fell for. Its good to me but I would of wanted a deeper picture after i've read the book. However, the picture and title was enough to piqued my interest along with the synopsis.  

The author, Lynda D. Brown really laid the pen and stirred up a story line that out right emphasizes the works of Satan and how our secular pursuits allows the devil and his demons to stir up chaos in our lives when we are not protected by the Supreme Being, God the creator. 
The story line was GREAT!! The author's prologue is taken from the biblical story of Job. Then the story line sets in motion Satan seeking to destroy the character of Job played by one of the characters of the book.  
The best part of the novel is how the author placed the demon of Satan and Angels of God in the story line. Readers gain a better understanding of the powers of Satan and his deception, lies and manipulation. Readers also witness that God is always amidst us waiting for his people to just call on his name for help.
This novel was an all night read for me.  The story has religion, the occult and a little history on one of the most provocative powerful societies today, Don't get the information confused with this being a Christian fiction book, its characters may be, its plot may be but the elements of good versus evil, God versus Satan is real as you reading this review. 
My reading pace was moderate to page turning. I definitely wanted to know the results of each character.  The author theme for the book was well accomplished although I personally don't believe the powers that God gave to the church was restored when Christ died on the cross because I don't believe the power was jeopardized, but that's another story.  If you really seek to gain understanding of the powers of Satan, read this book. This book genre is supernatural thriller and the author writes Science fiction too, well this book is just plain ole Christian Fiction at its best.  This novel sits on my book shelf as a Page Tuner and  Deep In My Soul.
