In the Midwestern suburb of LaGrange, something is amiss. Over a twenty-four-hour period, all the children under the age of thirteen along with many adults have disappeared without explanation. It doesn’t take long for those left behind to learn that this tragedy is part of a global event. As people panic, civilization begins to crumble. Luckily, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Daniel Grimshaw, has a plan to restore order. But first, every remaining person must be accounted for and tagged with a mark on their right hand.
Unaware of his responsibilities, seventeen-year-old Micah has been preparing for this day. His mother trained him and provided him with the proper tools, but she neglected to tell Micah about the family legacy, his legacy. Now that his mother is among the missing, will Micah ever discover who he is, or what he needs to do to save what’s left of humanity from the hellfire of perdition?
Vestige is the first book in a two book series.
A very quick read. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one.
The rapture is a subject that fascinates me. This book is a work of fiction, it will not change anyone's religious beliefs and I don't think it could possibly offend anyone's beliefs. It is simply a dark fictional account of the rapture and it's aftereffects.
The characters are strong. I was able to relate somewhat with each one of them. Micah is definitely my favorite.
The book ends with a cliff hanger, be on the lookout for book two.
I received this book from the author for an honest review
