Ishmael Covenant by Terry Brennan - Reviewed and GIVE AWAY!!

About the Book:
His marriage in tatters and his career ruined by lies, Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney is at the end of his rope. Banished to Israel as punishment by his agency, he's assigned to guard a US ambassador and an insignificant box. Little does he know that this new job will propel him straight into a crisis of global proportions.

Inside the box is a messianic prophecy about the fate of the world. And a dark enemy known as The Turk and the forces of evil at his command are determined to destroy the box, the prophecy, and the Middle East as we know it. When Ambassador Cleveland gets in the way, his life and his daughter's life are threatened--and Mullaney must act fast.

Now agents of three ancient empires have launched covert operations to secure nuclear weapons, in direct defiance of the startling peace treaty Israel and its Arab neighbors have signed. And a traitor in the US State Department is leaking critical information to a foreign power. It's up to Mullaney--still struggling with his own broken future--to protect the embassy staff, thwart the clandestine conspiracies, and unmask a traitor--before the desert is turned into a radioactive wasteland.

Fans of Joel C. Rosenberg, Steven James, and Ted Dekker will relish the deadly whirlpool of international intrigue and end-times prophecy in Ishmael Covenant--and will eagerly await the rest of this new trilogy.

My Review:
There has always been a lot of mystery and speculation surrounding Jerusalem and her people - God's chosen people.  The world has looked on, and in some cases, fought and died to protect both the people and the land that history has validated as their home.  Terry Brennan's imagination and political insight, his reporter's thirst for facts and his heart God and all His people combine to create a story that will captivate and thrill anyone willing to open to the first page!

There are many characters in play, and Brennan skillfully weaves the story line back in forth between the truth and deception surrounding a prophecy that has been protected and passed down for centuries.  There are moments that will cause the reader to hold their breath in terror and anticipation of what lies just past the next turn of the page.  The pace is fast and furious, but not so fast that you miss both the political and spiritual forces in play as the fight to bring the truth to light in its perfect timing.

I'm thrilled to know that this is the first in a series, because I was left at a very harrowing precipice as I read the final pages!!  I recommend this book to anyone that hungers for a thrilling what-if exploration of all the the war fare that takes place around God's chosen people.  It's real but not real, and you will be left hungry for more!
