Sequel to A Call to Duty and A Call to Arms. After the disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse.

The situation becomes even more dire when fresh tragedy strikes the Star Kingdom.

THE BATTLE AGAINST DARKNESS RAGES ON AS THE MINIONS OF THE EVIL ONE LAY DOWN A TRAP TO ENSNARE THE BOY WHO CAN CALL DOWN ANGELS FROM HEAVEN. A gun is fired outside the Washington Hilton Hotel. President Ronald Reagan is hit and slumps into his limousine near death. Six months later a bomb explodes in London. Two are killed and forty injured. What was not reported by the press was that Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher cancelled an appearance that morning that would have placed her squarely in the kill zone. It is 1981. In the midst of those two events, as Pope John Paul II greets an adoring crowd in St. Peter's Square, four shots are fired by escaped murderer, Mehmet Ali Agca. The official story was that the bullet that hit the pope in the abdomen barely missed all vital organs. That was not true. No surgeon could save him from his injuries. But there was still hope. In A Hand of Vengeance, three seemingly unrelated events are part of a mosaic created by Satan's warriors, both human and spiritual, to lure Brady, the young man who talks with angels and who can call on the Light of the Blessed Virgin, to a place where his maddening interference will be destroyed once and for all. But Brady is anointed by God for such a time as this. With his brothers and an ancient line of Hebrew warriors at his side, knowing full well that a hideous trap is laid for him, he again charges boldly into the eternal battle, facing Satan's foulest in Rome, Paris, and a place of unspeakable horror in Calcutta, India, as he comes to the aid of an Albanian nun who is gallantly fighting for God's most vulnerable of children. Brady will lose people he loves dearly. But God will reveal to him that the call and blessing that was given to his grandfather and passed on to his father and then bestowed on himself will continue in his family as he holds faithful to the call. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. -Ephesians 6:12

If you call on the light, you will inevitably battle the darkness ... A malevolent darkness races toward a small town outside Dayton, Ohio, transported in a rusted, white conversion van. In an epic battle of good versus evil, a teenager will fulfill a prophecy hidden in the vaults of the Vatican through the power of the Prayer of Vengeance.
It’s December 1997, and a man-eating tiger is on the prowl outside a remote village in Russia’s Far East. The tiger isn’t just killing people, it’s annihilating them, and a team of men and their dogs must hunt it on foot through the forest in the brutal cold. As the trackers sift through the gruesome remains of the victims, they discover that these attacks aren’t random: the tiger is apparently engaged in a vendetta. Injured, starving, and extremely dangerous, the tiger must be found before it strikes again. As he re-creates these extraordinary events, John Vaillant gives us an unforgettable portrait of this spectacularly beautiful and mysterious region. We meet the native tribes who for centuries have worshipped and lived alongside tigers, even sharing their kills with them. We witness the arrival of Russian settlers in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, soldiers and hunters who greatly diminished the tiger populations. And we come to know their descendants, who, crushed by poverty, have turned to poaching and further upset the natural balance of the region. This ancient, tenuous relationship between man and predator is at the very heart of this remarkable book. Throughout we encounter surprising theories of how humans and tigers may have evolved to coexist, how we may have developed as scavengers rather than hunters, and how early Homo sapiens may have fit seamlessly into the tiger’s ecosystem. Above all, we come to understand the endangered Siberian tiger, a highly intelligent super-predator that can grow to ten feet long, weigh more than six hundred pounds, and range daily over vast territories of forest and mountain. Beautifully written and deeply informative, The Tiger circles around three main characters: Vladimir Markov, a poacher killed by the tiger; Yuri Trush, the lead tracker; and the tiger himself. It is an absolutely gripping tale of man and nature that leads inexorably to a final showdown in a clearing deep in the taiga.

Brady is a warrior, chosen by God and sealed by his relentless courage and obedience. With his brothers at his side, he has wreaked death and devastation on Satan's plans to create a new world order. But the war is far from over. Evil lives in the hearts of the Prince of Darkness's demons and disciples. An Italian banker searches for clues that put him on the trail of Brady--and mysterious stones that hold the power to rule nations. Warned by his grandfather ... aided by his brothers and an ancient line of Hebrew warriors ... Brady will strike the first blow. But as he races from the fleeting safety of his farm to a tiny island in the Caribbean to the famed temple of Chichén Itzá and its dark secrets, he will find that the Enemy has been waiting for him all along.
