Desecration, the ninth novel in the Left Behind series is based on the book of Revelation. Carpathia is now fully possessed by Satan. He desecrates the temple in Jerusalem and intends to rule as a god. Nicolae launches attacks on the Jews. The Tribulation Force takes the Jewish converts to a safe place called Petra. A plague sweeps through the city. The will of the true God will be carried out. The lines have been drawn between good and evil. This series is best read in order.

Very little happens in the first half of Desecration however the latter half ups the tempo somewhat and offers some genuine surprises. This entry in the series is rather heavy handed with it's gospel, at times preaching the Word for pages at a time where it could have easily been more succinct. The authors could have up-scaled the action too, as a few of the scenarios presented could have been more exciting; more narrative allocated to them. It's a fair assumption that it is a deliberate effort to not glorify the warfare and the horror within this series. An essential book in the series which ends with a real cliffhanger.

This book is absolutley amazing. I think it is one of my favorites out of them all. It constantly kept my attention with all the action going on throughout the entire book. I don't think there was ever a dull moment. The characters' love and faith in God is neevrending and inspirational.

All of the Left Behind books are provacative and page turning. I read them all at least once a year.

I enjoyed the story as fiction. I laughed, cried, fumed, and shouted--all positive things--but I want to temper that strongly by saying that I wouldn't suggest it as theological or eschatological material, as some have. I'm not really concerned with the order and how's of end-time events and believe we waste too much time trying to figure it out. As Jesus said: "No one knows the times or the seasons, but my heavenly Father." Do worry about it. Live and hope. You don't need to have it all marked out on a calendar.If someone were to ask me what fictional literature I would suggest, this series wouldn't occur to me at all, and I wouldn't suggest it if it did. But, seeing as I have read it (except the last one and the prequels), I felt like I ought to review it. For story, I would give it three stars, maybe four. But my reservations pull that rating down to two.

Desecration: Antichrist Takes the Throne is the ninth book in the Left Behind Series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. In my opinion, this novel is bogging down possibly due to being popular and making money for the authors and their causes. The one thing I like about this series is the struggles the characters go through in rationalizing bad behavior for the good of the cause. This is a struggle that all of us face in daily life. The one thing that I detest is that as in the previous novels, the opposite side can do nothing right, although, LaHaye and Jenkins do take steps to toss that aside towards the end of the novel. I hope that this continues in the next book in the series. It is interesting to note that less and less people own the subsequent books in the series. As of March 14, 2008, on Library Thing, 1360 people have registered the first book and only 611 people have registered the 9th book.

These books are giving me nightmares -- and yet I keep reading them! Personally, I think they're not well written at all. However, every chapter and book ends on a cliffhanger and it sucks me in. I keep reading them solely to find out what happens next.I'm going to take a little break before moving on to book 10. I would like to get some sleep once in awhile!

This the ninth book in the Left Behind series kept me turning pages. This book is actually filled with adventure. Though the characters are still two dimensional, the writing very simple, and the text font large. It was a page-turner and the best book of this series so far. In this book we see the Antichrist desecrate the Holy Temple of Israel. And the Mark of the beast being officially placed on worshipers. And the first two bowls of wrath are poured upon the world. The changing of water to blood again and the worshipers of the beast who have the mark inflicted with sores and boils. The Tribulation Force uses the Co-op to get all the pilots they can into Israel in order to help with the mass Exodus of the Jews out of Jerusalem. And the Chosen People of God who have accepted Christ come under his divine protection. And we see this protection as the forces try to stop these evacuees from reaching Petra. And once again when the Global Community Military tries to assault Petra. The book ends with a devastating attack on Petra that the results are left as a cliffhanger.

The Tribulation Force starts ferrying the Jews to safety as Nicolae gets ready to defile the Temple. One of the stronger entries in the late part of the series, the action moves quickly and keeps your attention.
