Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I read the first book in this series. I loved it and waited eagerly to see how the story would unfold. I was a little worried that maybe the tale would lose the exciting pace or that things might get bogged down and become boring. That absolutely did not happen. The second book of The Stonegate Series by Harry James Fox is called The False Prophet and it picks up a few weeks after the first book ends. You don’t have to read the first book to understand and enjoy the second book, but I recommend it. Reading that first story will add texture and details to not only the military campaign, but also Donald’s romantic situation. Don’t get me wrong; you still know what’s going on in the second book if you haven’t read the first book, but if you have read it, everything has a deeper texture and urgency.

Harry James Fox has done it again. He plunges us into a world that has struggled back from disaster and is on the brink of recovery. I like the values displayed in this post-disaster America. These are values and struggles I can relate to. I like how Harry James Fox shows us how one man with twisted dreams and ambitions can threaten a whole civilization. As depressing as that can be, it is also a chance for good people, people of faith, to stand up and become heroes. The writing in The False Prophet is clear and concise. The action is vividly and accurately portrayed, and there is a variety of characters, both good and bad. I like this world. I like Don. This is a series that Christians and other fans of action/adventure can get into.
