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: I love a good book about the spiritual world, so I was thrilled to receive a copy of The Empowered \! While I did not read the first book, I felt like I had a fair grasp of the story and characters, since Craig makes references to the first book. There is a lot going on with the story, though it did drag a few places, but was over all interesting and suspenseful. I thought the ending was well done! I look forward to reading more by Craig in the future.
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
