Book Review: The Seraph Seal

Okay, I have to admit I was giving the end of the world genre a try. I admit to liking the movie 2012 and watching other type films but I have never really READ any of them.

The book I had for review this time was The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet and Lori Wagner. I honestly thought I would enjoy it but alas I did not. I had a hard time getting through the book but if you like the very futuristic fiction with an inspirational twist, this might be up your alley.

The book starts out with a flash of the year 2012. As many of you know what the movies are saying that this would be the day the world ends, this is when it actually begins in the book. Then you flash forward to the year 2048 where things are coming to light. There is action, adventure and history all mixed into one. I am slightly saddened that I just could not get into this book like I had intended. I am hoping that later on it might catch for me but this time it did not. I appreciate the opportunity to review this book from Thomas Nelson publishing. You can find this on Amazon if you are interested in hearing more. 

*Thanks to Book Sneeze for sending this book to me for free in return for my review. I did not promise a positive review, only an honest opinion of what I thought. *


  1. I love to read and I hate to give a negative review to any book. But there are some that I just can't get into even if they have four or five star reviews. Then I feel like what was wrong with me that I didn't click with the book.

    I am following you via SRW blog hop. Please follow me.

  2. Me too Patricia! This just about killed me but I just could not get into it. Hopefully others will get something out of it. Thanks for stopping by and I am on my way to your place. :)

  3. For its part, The Seraph Seal, did introduce a motley of interesting characters with both destructive and constructive personalities. But because there were just an awful lot of them, I found it challenging to keep up. Add to that all the informative details that-although necessary to the story-mostly bogs down the story's progress and thus bears heavily on the intended appeal of the book. I didn't really get into it, didn't really feel any need to rush through it, until nature starts taking its destructive course more seriously. Although the solar anomalies and falling meteors did peg the book among any other forms of end-of-the-world media, at least it was something I could finally relate with.


I love to hear from you!
