Publisher's Summary

Former Navy SEAL Jedidiah Johnson returns to Nashville ready to begin his training with the elite warriors known as the Shepherds. He thinks he knows what to expect when he arrives at the sprawling, state-of-the-art facility, but quickly realizes he’ll have to find his place as the rookie leader of a new team. Then he starts having visions of an imminent attack overseas, and with the clock ticking, Jed and his team are dispatched to neutralize the threat. All the while, Jed hears whispers of another threat . . . a name that raises unexplained fear and anger throughout the Shepherds' organization.

Once a military man, Nicholas Woland betrayed the Shepherds and all they stood for when he joined their enemies. After years in prison, Woland is eager to get back in action spreading chaos and death. And he has been freed for a purpose: a sinister plot that will result in hundreds of casualties and incite worldwide religious warfare for years to come.

As Woland and the Shepherds race toward a collision, Jed must rely on his gifts, his training, and his untested team to make critical decisions on a global stag - never realizing that a secret servant of the enemy is growing closer and closer to him.

As good #1

Enjoyed the juxtaposition of the detail of all things army, navy and marines with the spiritual battle that they are faced with. Both are complex but simple at its base , good vs evil. The authors do an exceptional job of interweaving it all without neglecting the story itself. Narration was great. Keep them coming - these are my favorite type to listen to/read.

Meh…. NOT nearly up to the quality of Andrew’s and Wilson’s

Chunk and Dempsey thrillers - no authentic warrior banter that makes Sons of Valor, Tier One, thrillers. Sigh. MacLeod Andrews’s narration is Vastly superior to the first Shephards narrator BUT the lack of warrior repartee ensures that this is my last Shephards story. Just sayin

Awesome

As a Christian, finding this series was so fantastic. I love all the special ops books but what a blessing to find a series that brings the two together. It’s special ops vs satan.

Really enjoyed the story and perspective

I really enjoy the books these two have written. I love these type of thriller novels. One of the things I really appreciated is the spiritual aspect and Christian view in the story. While in the real world spiritual warfare may not happen like this, there is still a spiritual battle going on. We all have different views and beliefs on what that might look like. For me this book reminded me that there is still a spiritual battle going on. I also like that none of the characters are perfect and all have a past with struggles that they still battle. Everyone enjoys different types of stories and has different beliefs. For me I really enjoyed these and can't wait for the next book in the series.

I find when people leave reviews with other authors it helps me find other series/ authors to check out and it helps give me a perspective of their review. If it helps you, these are some of the authors I have followed and read/listened to most of their books: Brad Thor, Clive Cussler, Ben Coes, Jack Mars, David Baldacci, Mark Greaney, Brett Battles and Vince Flynn/Kyle Mills to name a few.

God wins Evil

I have to say that I didn't know what kind of book I downloaded. I have been a Jack Mars junkie prior. But being a Christian and in Spec Warfare at one time I was intrigued by the story. My mother was clairvoyant and I have a little of it. Again went well with the storyline. Good book and narration as well.

Truly Amazing!

This book is another winner by the fantastic writing duo of Andrews and Wilson and they have a couple of different series out now. By this time, I don't even hesitate to hit the "Buy" button when I see a new book by this team.

This is the second book in this new series and I can not stress the fact enough that this is not a series that is their normal genre. These guys excel in the Spec Ops type genre, the books dealing with Armed Services, CIA, Secret Squirrel (Super spooky) type political turmoil with American Patriots who give up some of the freedoms of having a normal life to be able to help defend this country. Don't get me wrong, there is still that element here in this series. We still have an organization committed to defending the US, heck, defending the World, but this is not your normal Black Ops Organization.

This new and improved NGO type group is founded on the commitment to fight evil. The REAL evil. This is a combination of military might and power, but with the added component of the supernatural. And by supernatural, I mean with God. And that means the enemy is, yes, you guessed it, that other guy and his team. Like I said...REAL evil.

This series may not be for everybody, but honestly, if you do not give it a try, you are definitely missing out. This organization - The Shepherds - has roots going back several hundred years and to all of us who believe in God, then you know that the enemy will do and has done, everything in his power to destroy and to cause chaos. The fight between good and evil is a scary one and we begin to see just how scary this fight can be in this second book.

I do not want to give out too much information other than to say that I LOVED it. I love the fact that this is a different type of book than what is typically out in this genre. The fights that we see in this book are huge in scope but some of the real damage is coming from within. There is a huge issue with "who" the bad guys are within our group of good guys.

It is so exciting to see the gifts that God has bestowed to certain individuals, and even those who may not have a particular "gift" - it is refreshing to see that their contribution can be just as important. The key to defeating an enemy is to have a team working together, with common goals and common beliefs.

Unfortunately, with the good also comes the bad. I am nervous to discover what is coming next, especially with some of the characters that have been introduced in these last two books.

Things are only getting more exciting....scary too, but it is going to be a wild ride. I would not expect anything less.....

Can’t stop listening to this one

Excellent story. This book does a great job of portraying the skill and talent of those who keep our country safe, while bringing into clear focus the spiritual warfare that happens every day. I love the way Jed’s return to faith develops more clearly in this book. God’s redemption and faithfulness to get us to where we need to be to serve Him is perfectly demonstrated! Can’t wait for the next book in this series!

Exceptional book

Dark Angel is the second book in the Shepherds series and it is exceptional. It’s refreshing to read or listen to a book that talks about the spiritual battle that is taking place within each one of us and in the world around us. God is real and Satan is real and both wish to have us on their side. Without giving too much of the plot away, I appreciate that the authors showed that when you choose to serve evil, or as they call it “the dark ones”, the devil will always abandon his followers. The devil uses people to do evil, to cause chaos, stir up anger and hate. Only God offers unconditional love, peace, forgiveness and joy. I love the Shepherd series. Please keep writing them!

Worst ever

Completely stupid story ,not sure if it’s meant to be science fiction or some sort of promotional effort by an ultra fanatical right wing militaristic religious group ,whatever it was meant to be it’s just stupid .
