Ashley Fontainne takes the genre of Christian Paranormal Thriller to the next level in Operation Jade Helmet. Signs of the end-times are upon us in a not-so-distant future as the world is experiencing a cataclysmic heatwave and society as a whole is addicted to social media and gaming like never before. Bringing in some of her well-known characters from her Legion Novella Series, Fontainne weaves together multiple and terrifying plotlines as this story comes to a nail-biting head in a vivid spiritual and physical battle that will hit close to home for many readers.
Fans of Fontainne’s Legion Novella Series will recall Tyler Tidwell and his battle with demons. Well, those demons are at it again, and while Tidwell doesn’t take center stage in this story, he does play a crucial role as a retired and faithful pastor who stands against the darkness that even resides in his own church. Lest I give the impression that’s all there is, there are many other memorable characters whose storylines weave and arc together in this complex and intricate story. From page one, Fontainne immediately thrusts the reader into the action of this story, adding dark intrigue with a mysterious figure that even the supposed “bad guys” seem to fear. Truly, I remained on the edge of my seat to the very end of this story, even enjoying the didactic aspects of this story. Much like Frank Perretti’s This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness and Prophet, Fontainne’s Operation Jade Helmet is a cautionary tale that feels far too real to be read as mere allegory. Indeed, it is written as a prophetic glimpse of a future five years hence - one that is far too vividly captured to be passed up as mere speculation.
