To Fight What Others Can’t You Must See What Others Don’t

After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter didn’t just regain his sight. He now sees what others can’t imagine–an entire spiritual realm of mighty beings at war.

It’s up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving Drew. Validus now knows that the young man is at the epicenter of a global spiritual war, and the angels must use a millennia of battle experience keep Drew alive, for the Fallen want him dead.
 
Surrounded by spiritual warriors and targeted by demons, Drew’s faced with an impossible decision that will forever alter the destiny of America...and his own soul.

Can One Doubting Man Change the Fate of a Nation?
 
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms…”
 
The riveting final book in the Wars of the Realm series, Light of the Last (Multnomah Books, February 16, 2016) concludes the heroic escapades of Drew Carter as he finds himself at the center of a global spiritual battle that could destroy the United States of America.
After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter discovered he could see what others cannot: the light and dark warriors fighting a spiritual battle around him. But that’s only the beginning of his problems: his unique talents catapult him into service with the CIA on a top-secret mission to uncover a terrorist plot with roots deep in the federal government.

As both light and dark forces discover why Drew is crucial to humanity's survival, Drew’s struggle between following God or remaining an atheist becomes essential to the fate of the United States. Validus, the last and least of God’s angels, must rise to the challenge of leading his team of angel warriors to protect Drew against a Legion of dark forces bent on destroying him before he can find true faith.
Will Drew find God and discover his purpose in both global and spiritual history? Or will his doubts provide an opening for the Fallen to forever alter the destiny of this nation…and the world?    

By drawing on his own experience in the United States Air Force, Black spins a captivating adventure for young adult readers. Black also includes notes to explain how biblical passages shaped his fictional portrayal of spiritual warfare. These elements offer families additional opportunities for biblical discussion and homeschool study. Thoughtfully constructed to emphasize the power of prayer, God's Word and being a witness for the Gospel, Black’s powerful conclusion to the Wars of the Realm series opens the eyes of young readers to the realities of spiritual warfare.

In a culture fixated on the heroes of comic books and science fiction blockbusters, Black’s fictional look at the real importance of truth and prayer is a much-needed challenge for young adults to discover true heroism in living boldly for Jesus.

This third installment to the Wars of the Realm series has been very long-awaited on the part of yours truly.

Light of the Last is the third and final book in the War of the Realm series. I have read the two previous books in the series; Cloak of the Light and Rise of the Fallen. Both of the previous books were good reads; this book follows right along with them. Although, I must say, if you were to read this book without reading the previous two, you would miss out on a lot of what is happening and some parts may be a bit confusing. This...

Light of the Last the third book in the War of the Realms series. I believe that this is the last book in the series, but with how this book ended, I could see it continuing or have a spin off in a way. If that were to happen, I wouldn't mind, this has been a very good and interesting story. We have followed Drew through this whole series from the time he was a teenager in Cloak of Light to college age and a little older in this...
