"James Rollins meets Joel Rosenberg in Terry Brennan."--Jeannette Windle, award-winning author of Veiled Freedom
Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney wants out. He's been drawn against his will into a dangerous international mission with world-ending implications--and his final assignment is going to pit him directly against the terrifying, evil entity known only as the Turk.
But when the Turk's minions breach the US embassy in Israel and the American ambassador disappears, Mullaney has no choice. He must accept his role as the final guardian of a mysterious box, his only weapon against the powers of darkness bent on preventing the second coming of the Messiah, no matter who or what they annihilate to accomplish their goal. Can this man who's already lost so much find the strength and faith to save the world--and fulfill the prophecy of peace?
The final volume of the Empires of Armageddon trilogy will have fans of Joel Rosenberg, Ronie Kendig, and Frank Peretti on the edge of their seats up to the final page.

What an exciting journey it has been, reading through the Empires of Armageddon trilogy! Full of action and suspense without overly graphic violence, each story builds on the previous – you will want to read the entire series.
I appreciated the strong emphasis on spiritual warfare and that the real enemies we face are not those of flesh and blood and they cannot be fought with carnal weapons. This message is brought home so very well.
Several of the plot twists surprised me, including Atticus Cleveland’s actions! It was crazy to see all the action and realize that the events for the entire series encompass a mere two weeks.
Poppy was a delightful addition to the cast of characters. While I would love to tell you all about why he was so interesting, you’ll appreciate much better discovering him for yourself.
An interesting conversation between Brian and Atticus regarding racism took place near the middle of the story. The insights shared were quite profound and I was grateful for them.
Ottoman Dominion did get a bit mired with myriad details at the beginning. So many historical facts were shared, including some from the previous stories, that it was slow going in parts. Glossing over these a bit more and then putting the details in the author’s notes – or sharing in a more interesting manner would have enhanced the overall experience.
That said, lovers of suspense will enjoy the Empires of Armageddon trilogy.
