The Empowered by Craig Parshall Review

Synopsis: Just when a mysterious death in Washington, DC, appears to have voodoo connections rooted in New Orleans, Trevor Black also receives an invitation to speak at the national ABA convention in the city.

He knows he’ll be in enemy territory, both as a disbarred attorney and as a follower of Jesus, but he determines to travel there and confront the supernatural element. Right after a grisly murder in his hotel room puts him on the suspect list, his daughter disappears, leaving a note that suggests a connection to the local cult religion. Now Trevor must not only crack the case but try to protect Heather from forces of darkness clutching at her soul as well. And just as he discovers that his ability to sniff out the supernatural has its limitations, Trevor learns that this web of evil extends far beyond isolated murders, enslaving scores of innocent children, with its head perhaps linked to the highest seats of power.

My Thoughts: Books about spiritual warfare and the invisible war that wages around us always fascinate me. This book follows Trevor Black, a former lawyer who can see past the invisible veil…he sees demons and is attuned to the demonic forces surrounding him. He is called by a former coworker to investigate a suspicious death which leads him to discover something very sinister behind everything.

This book was very fast paced and exciting. The reader is taken from North Carolina to New Orleans to Washington DC and meets many colorful characters. Although there are a lot of characters in this book, it was fairly easy to keep track of who was who.

The writing is very atmospheric. At one point, I was on a boat in a New Orleans bayou and I could almost hear the sounds and fear that a gator would attack.

I truly believe in the battle of good and evil and appreciate that Craig Parshall writes about the subject. I will definitely pick up more books by him. This is book 2 in the Trevor Black series but it works as a standalone. I enjoyed it more than the first book, The Occupied…read my review of it Here.

My Rating: 4.5 stars

I received this book from Tyndale House to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
