Assassins by Tim Lahaye & Jerry B. Jenkins

The members of the Tribulation Force face their most dangerous challenges. As international fugitives, they struggle to find supplies for safe houses around the world. In despair over so many lost lives, Rayford Steele and Buck Williams make plans to dethrone Nicolae Carpathia and expose him as the Antichrist. Meanwhile, Carpathia has been busy rebuilding roads, airports, and a cellular/solar satellite phone system--all designed to help him become the supreme ruler of the world. Many believers want him stopped, but who will fulfil Scripture and help bring about the Antichrist's death?

The next plague is unleashed on the world, and affords quite intriguing imagery of imposing and fearful horseman appearing in the horizon and in the air. I have to admit, considering my favourite genre is romance, I’m really enjoying imagining the more obvious supernatural elements of the book, even as they are increasing through the series.

The resolve and spirit of the Tribulation Force is under great pressure, and they desperately long for the Great Appearing, when it will all end. Rayford battles with his anger and is intent on being God’s instrument in killing Nicolae. It turns out he isn’t the only person wanting to assassinate Nicolae, as Mac – Tribulation Force member and first pilot to the Antichrist - discovers when their plane is attacked by a rebel faction.

There is great physical and emotional toll on the Tribulation force, suffering great affliction in their quest to survive in this tumultuous age. There are more losses throughout the book.

The series is still interesting and enjoyable, but I feel a little weary and have to take breaks from the it – disperse my reading with some happy romances inbetween :)
