I truly enjoy reading Joel C Rosenberg's end times fiction. I am a huge fan of his Political Thriller series (The Last Jihad, The Last Days, The Ezekiel Option, The Copper Scroll, Dead Heat) and when the opportunity to read THE TWELTH IMAM opened I eagerly agreed to read and share my opinions. My mother always told me I was never short of opinions on things, as I've grown older I see she was right!

The ironic part of reading this book is that I live just outside Gainesville Florida. While we're most famous for our Florida Gators champion football and basketball teams, recently we were in the news for quite another reason, a small local cult was threatening to burn the Koran. This set off a firestorm in the media, but for me it brought this book to life much more clearly. Things written made perfect sense to me.

As a Christian I look forward to the second coming of Jesus Christ and his Millennial Kingdom. I was never aware that Islam also believes there will be a "messiah" coming, in the form of the last Imam. Joel C Rosenberg never fails to bring new things to light while providing an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride of suspense.

Even if you have not read the Political Thriller series you will enjoy the suspense and intrigue of THE TWELFTH IMAM. This one is another winner for Joel C. Rosenberg.
