Have you ever wondered what life was like before the Rapture for Rayford, Irene, and Chloe Steele, Bruce Barnes, Buck Williams, and Tsion Ben Judah?

You will find all these answers and more in this exciting new series!
In The Rising, Marilena Carpathia has only one dream: to be a mother. So when a mysterious clairvoyant promises the fulfillment of this dream, Marilena does not hesitate. Through genetic engineering and the power of the prince of darkness himself, Marilena is about to become a chosen vessel, one who will unknowingly give birth to the greatest evil the world has ever known.
Halfway around the world, God's plans are subtly being carried out too. Young Ray Steele is determined to avoid one day taking over the family business. Instead, Ray sets his heart on becoming a pilot.
Soon Carpathia's and Steele's lives will intersect. And good and evil will clash in an explosion that will shake the world.
The eternal battle for souls has come to earth. The world hurtles toward the countdown to the Rapture.

Story was great but voices killed it

I had to finish this for school and I'm glad I did because the story was great, but if I wasn't obligated to I probably wouldn't have because the voices were so terrible. The main narrator was great and a joy to listen to but every character voice was so terrible. It sounded like a Spanish man was doing a bad impression of a Spanish woman. I would have rather had the main narrator do both male and female parts.
