The Telling ~ Review

THE TELLING
By Mike Duran

Endurance, California lies along the northern fringes of Death Valley and is home to the mythical ninth gate of hell.  Endurance is also the home of Zeph Walker a young man who has lost his way.  As a child Zeph was known for his gift of prophecy.  But when he is scarred both physically and emotionally, Zeph pulls into himself, trying to lock out the world.

But we can't hide from our destiny as Zeph learns eight years later when Tamra Lane walks into the Book Swap looking for a rare book called Mystery Spots and Magic Landscapes and a being that could be Zeph's twin is found murdered near his home.  

Endurance is in danger and if the evil that has awakened can escape no one will live to see another day, but who can be trusted?  Evil has a way of pervading and Endurance just how far it has reached into the soul of the town.

But a remnant has been waiting and they are willing to stand in the gap against the darkness.  But can Zeph find his way back to his calling while he still has time?

If you like the writing styles of Ted Dekker or Frank Peretti, give The Telling a try.
