And with all the high-tech, action, and heart that has always made his books a blast to read. Liparulo is a phenomenal storyteller, and The 13th Tribe is a phenomenal story. Read this novel! Seriously!

I figured Liparulo was trying to develop the characters, and thus was setting the stage for the next book in the series.

Even though I wanted more action in the first book, the second book is much better. The Judgement Stone picks up not too long after The 13rth Tribe. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the book seemed faster paced with suspense sprinkled throughout the story.

I've been following Robert Liparulo for a while now. Some of his stories are really strong and others just a bit flat.

When I first read the 13th Tribe, it was pretty good. It felt a little slow at times, but I enjoyed it. I figured Liparulo was trying to develop the characters, and thus was setting the stage for the next book in the series. Even though I wanted more action in the first book, the second book is much better.

The Judgement Stone picks up not too long after The 13rth Tribe. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the book seemed faster paced with suspense sprinkled throughout the story. In all honesty, this book reminded me of This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness by Frank Peretti. The portrayal of the spiritual realm came to life more vividly here in the second installment of the Immortal series. With the interaction of the physical and spiritual realm in the story, it seemed to really show the struggle that Jagger experienced as his faith and reality collided. Liparulo did a great job of describing fight scenes, though I'll admit this one seemed to have a bit more violence than other books of his. But, of course, I'm fine with violence when the point is to show the real depth that battling evil and the struggle that it has on us as believers.

If you like stories that deal with overcoming evil and does spiritual warfare well, then this book is great. But like others say, read the 13th Tribe first so you understand more the background.

I wish I could give more than five stars!

Owen, Jagger, and all the immortals from The Thirteenth Tribe are back, and now going up against an even deadlier enemy. Where the Tribe used their powers of immortality to kill "sinners", the Clan uses theirs to target saints. And with the discovery of a new supernatural artifact, THEY WILL FIND YOU!

Ever since I got the audiobook, then the paperback I loved the excitement and danger of The Thirteenth Tribe. The sequel, if anything, is even more intense!

What are you doing? Why are you still reading this? Buy the book already!!!

Part of me loved this book - the spiritual depth of the conversations, the look into the spirit realm and how it interacts with our lives, the love of family, the power of God's intervention when we pray and especially the maturity of Robert's insight into human nature. However the story lagged too much. What could have easily been a page-turning thriller became bogged down with scenes that hardly moved - they just crawled. And I'm not talking about the conversational parts but the action scenes. One scene lasted almost the entire book. I found myself constantly saying out loud "get on with it." The writing was good but the storytelling needed a kick in the pants.

If you have not read book one The 13th Tribe (An Immortal Files Novel) I suggest reading it first. It's a good book so you'll be happy you read it.

I downloaded the audio version of this book because I had a road trip to make and found it to be interesting. The reader had a good speaking voice but I found he whining way to much. I would not have translated hardened men as being whiny. It did make my drive go by quicker though.

Overall, even with the not-so-glowing comments, I found the book very much worth reading. The overall plot and storyline are very interesting, the characters are three dimensional and the spiritual insights are deep and encouraging.

Recommended.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the home page. I find in doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.

This one started off with a bang and moved along quite nicely from there. The Immortal series started with The 13th Tribe and that one held a lot of suspense and surprises. That one introduced the Tribe, which is a group of immortals that strive to rid the world of evil by killing those that sin. This one introduces the Clan. They are much more malevolent and kill people for sport, and to rid the world of those that are holy. The Clan finds the God Stone which lets them see into the spiritual realm and see how devout a person truly is. This leads to the savage killing of many innocent people. Jagger Baird and his ally Owen, must stop the Clan and get the God Stone back. I wasn't sold on this one as much as the first, and I think it was due to its lacking of the surprises the other one so flawlessly held. Jagger's wife and son were being chased throughout the entire book, and I didn't feel the threat as much as in the first. I liked the parts written about Jagger's chase of the Clan much better. The ending was good as well, bringing everyone together for one last battle. I am looking forward to seeing where this series goes next

Bob Liparulo doesn't hold back on the intensity and violence. I wish I had read the 13th Tribe so I could get the context a little better, but it was a compelling read. His description and multiple plot lines kept the reader involved, especially with the main characters of Jarred, Beth and Tyler. The idea that Owen (John the apostle) was immortal is intriguing. I found myself stretching to empathize with him and what he experienced over more than 2000 years of history.
The description of the shard of the Judgement stone seemed a bit contrived, but the description of the spiritual world was very easy to picture and also compelling.
My only criticism was that the focus spiritually was on the angelic and demonic worlds and not much on God. Though He is moving in the background, and angels are His instruments I felt Bob should have given more prominence and glory to Him, the giver of the Law and the reason the shard held such power. I enjoyed the read and look forward to the next in the series. Thanks,
