The Return is an action thriller that challenges us with the possibility that Jesus Christ is returning now. “The world currently in a state of upheaval and getting more chaotic everyday,” states Carter Vance, author of The Return. “Many of the prophesied signs of the end times are here, now, and are an indication of the possible return of Christ.”
What if the Knights Templar never disbanded and have amassed, over the centuries, virtually unlimited resources in anticipation of His return?
Aided by the manpower and financial, technological, and military resources of the Knights Templar, the parents and their unborn son face challenges from the most evil of the dark forces in society.
“The grail will be found in the thistles, but it’s not there./If you break it, victory is yours./Else, you battle the first son for 27 revolutions for the prize of a thousand years.”
Their nemesis races to solve this riddle for the prize, but where the answer lies is a mystery to him and his minions. Always aware and on the move, the First Family never rests until the ultimate battle is waged with fleets of the most advanced vehicles and armaments known to man. Who will be left when the battle ends and who will know it ever happened?
Such a descriptive plot line merited another look for an avid reader of End Time scenarios such as myself but let me first say this is purely fictional work and is by no means, based on solid facts or even any 'extensive knowledge of prophecies, religions, relics and the esoteric' as stated by the author.
I found The Return (E book version) to be however fast paced and to some extent, interesting.
Carter Vance claims knowledge of prophecies but fails to include any biblical references for a student of the Word as myself for i.e. and so I was wary of any validation.
It is believed that when Christ returns it will be as John describes in Revelation 1 Verse 7 (NIV):
“Look, He is coming with the clouds,”
and “every eye will see Him,
even those who pierced Him”;
and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of Him.”
So shall it be! Amen.
I saw also no mentions of the Rapture of the Church or Armageddon, bringing to question the final battle of Good over Evil is perhaps held for the next installment?
And unlike similar works by other authors, characters are not guaranteed any particular longevity as they come and go at a remarkable speed!
Regretfully, I must also admit to feel some distraction due to a large amount of typos and missing words.
That said, the Knights Templar are always of interest to the masses and thus provided in part some entertainment, which was after all the object of my reading the book.
Carter Vance's reminder that anyone can be seduced by the darker forces of our planet is also to be noted!
3 (generous) Stars, mostly due to the action!
