What a fantastic book! This is better than This Present Darkness, much better. Though this is a work of fiction, her characterization of both angels and demons is Biblical. She doesn’t give undue power to demons or lessen the power of God’s angels.
An Evil Agenda is about three families in different parts of the country, all targeted by Satan. Skylar is a young girl with an incredible voice. Author, Charlotte Pound, does a great job of taking the reader through her temptation and what eventually happens. Zachary and his entire family are targets of Satan. Again, the author does a great job of showing the slow descent into worldliness and the subtle walking away from the things of God. Lastly, Rachelle is the daughter of a pastor. She is incredibly beautiful and is tempted to walk away from all that she has been taught of what is right and wrong and go her own way.
I don’t want to ruin the book for you, so I won’t tell the ending. However, I will say it was a very satisfying, believable ending for all three threads of the story. The author geared it for young adults and I must say did a great job with that. My teen-age daughter took the book from me when I was right in the middle of it and wouldn’t give it back until she had finished it first!
I don’t think this book is only for the youth, however. I think adults will not only greatly enjoy this book, but also be encouraged as well as convicted by it. This one definitely gets five stars in my book! Get it! Read it! You won’t regret it!
