The sky darkens, volcanos erupt, and earthquakes rumble.The believers rise to the heavens; the rapture has begun. A boy with two swords and a demonic heritage must help the ones that are innocent. He only has one destination but he needs others to get there. With the help of an angel, his best friend, and a teenaged girl, he overcomes things from the pit of Hell. Is he ready for what is waiting for him at his destination?

Rapture is a story about a teen boy living through the rapture. His father tells him some bad news about his future: not only is the world about to change, but his father won't be there to help him deal with those changes. The rapture begins and the boy sees that he really is alone. Sadness overwhelms him. But now he realizes he must fight through the pain and sadness. This sometimes touching, full of action book shows how the teen gets through the rapture.


Rapture is a very intense book. What I didn't like about the book is that there were a few typos (Ebook copy). There also wasn't enough romance. Another thing is that the book didn't captivate me enough in the beginning.

What I did like about Rapture is that it told about the past as well as the present.

This book is a great read because it has: action, adventure, surprises, and a touch of romance. I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars and would recommend this book to ages 12 and up. Have a great time reading!!!
