Synopsis (from Goodreads): With a victory against the Evil One under their belts, the four of the Prophecy have managed to bring even greater adversity their way.
In Soul’s Gate, Reece, Dana, Brandon, and Marcus—the four of the Prophecy—were set free from some of their deepest wounds.
Now the four must stand against the Enemy’s continues assaults—and try to determine how to prevail against the dark manifestation of The Wolf mentioned in the Prophecy.
But the Enemy isn’t going to make that easy. Circumstances in each of their personal lives affect their unity and commitment to the group. Three enigmatic men appear and none of the four can get a true sense of whether these men are intimate allies . . . or diabolical enemies. And if that’s not enough, the Enemy has begun torturing them with visions of what their lives would be like if they could reverse their greatest regrets—if they’d made the right choices.
These four have seen amazing things in the spiritual realm. But faith can become even more difficult when it’s influenced by sight
 




     I am so excited that I got the opportunity to review this book! If you've been with us from the beginning, one of the first books I reviewed @ The Indigo Quill was James L. Rubart's book, Book of Days (which I currently have my husband reading). I did not read the first book in this series, but I wasn't too lost. I would have, but I honestly didn't even realize it WAS part of a series until I started reading.

     Well, this is definitely an adventure! Not only does Rubart  hand us a storyline sure to set in motion from the beginning, but he creates a world of characters that ask many of the same questions we do through life. It was difficult to put this book down! I don't think I have read a book within this caliber of Christian Fiction. I'm more of a Karen Kingsbury, Beverly Lewis-type gal. Much different from the action-packed spiritual warfare in Memory's Door. It's awesome to see Rubart pushing new boundaries in this genre and I hope to see more of this happening.

      This is not just a story, though. Rubart includes lessons that reach the hearts of readers and allows us to connect with the characters. Ever gone through a set-back that seems to create a major stumbling block from what you thought you were meant to accomplish in life? You find yourself frustrated and asking "why??" This is only one of the humanizations added to Rubart's characters.

     You know what else I love about James L. Rubart? I can recommend his books to my husband!!

     I would definitely recommend reading the first book in this series first. I hate that I read them out of order (a little reader's OCD), but I'm definitely going to pick up the first one, and then probably re-read this one. I can't wait until the next installment! In the meantime, I'll probably pick up more of his books. He's definitely becoming one of my favorite authors.

James L. Rubart takes readers deeper into the world he began in Soul’s Gate (a 2013 Christy Award winner) with Memory’s Door (Thomas Nelson), the second book in the Well Spring series.
