Review of Soul Defenders: The Black Orchids
5 stars

A thrill-packed ride with unexpected twists, “Soul Defenders: The Black Orchids” is a riveting novel that is soundly evangelical and Bible-based. In the small, seemingly sleepy and peaceful community of Cherry Creek, Oregon, nestled in the shadow of Mount Hood, a battle rages above and beyond the earth, a battle between God’s angels and Satan’s demons, a battle for minds and souls. A murdered pastor, an evil detective, a mysterious cult with Satanic intent, and devoted prayer warriors are just part of the scene. A new pastor is called from Southern California and pits his prayers and beliefs against the demonic intent for this town, and against the Master Plan set in motion to destroy all the good of Cherry Creek for eternity.

Author Carol Van Atta writes excitingly of the unseen battle, comfortably interweaving the spiritual background and the need for prayer to repel the demonic forces. Her characters are realistic and understandable, well-rounded individuals who stand at, or have stood at, decision points. Free will is an important concern here, as each individual must decide whose side to choose, and to accept the consequences. Nothing comes easy, but then this is war-spiritual warfare-and the stakes are high.

The author provided me with an e-book copy at Smashwords, via the Goodreads review group Making Connections, in return for my provision of a fair and impartial review.

About the Book:

Will their prayers move Heaven's Heart before it is too late? 

When Ted Lyons accepts the new pastorate at Cherry Creek's Community Church, he has no idea just how handy his former law enforcement skills will become. A murdered pastor, the pastor's kidnapped wife, and their runaway daughter are only the beginning in a series of problems he wishes were part of a bad dream. Ted soon realizes he's facing a battle better fought on his knees, in prayer, than with his gun. 

As ruthless demons, summoned by an international cult - The Black Orchids - take over the town of Cherry Creek, angelic warriors are dispatched to protect the weary residents and stop a diabolical plan of destruction. 

By surrendering their lives to God and forming an unlikely alliance, Ted and a rag-tag group of struggling believers work together to slay the shadows of evil that threaten their very existence. 

This fast-paced tale of supernatural suspense will thrill fans of Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness and Randy Alcorn's The Ishbane Conspiracy  Soul Defenders: The Black Orchids, is the first book in a trilogy of spiritual warfare thrillers.
