A 20 year old, runs away from his conservative father to the remote town where his mother died two years ago. He meets an alluring young woman.

Beginning with Into the Darkness , Darkness Descending , and Through the Darkness , bestselling author Harry Turtledove ("The master of alternative history"- Publishers Weekly ) has been telling an epic tale: the story of a world war, comparable to the terrible world wars of our own 20th century, in a world where magic works.

Imagine the drama and terror of the Second World War-only the bullets are beams of magical fire, the tanks are great lumbering beasts, and fighters and bombers are dragons raining fire upon their targets. Welcome to the world of the Derlavaian War, a world that is slowly but surely being conquered, mile by bloody mile, by the forces of the Algarvian empire . . forces whose most terrible battle magics are powered by the slaughter of innocent people, the Kaunians, whom Algarve-like much of the world-holds in disdain.

In Rulers of the Darkness , the fourth volume of the series which began with Into the Darkness, the war for the continent of Derlavai builds toward its crescendo as the mages of Kuusamo, aided by their former rivals from Lagoas, work desperately to create a newer form of magic that will change the course of the war. But this is really a story of ordinary people-on all sides of the conflict-forced by fate to rise to their heroic limits . . or sink to the level of their darker natures.

Pastor Mike Hoggard discusses the Translation, most often referred to as the Rapture, and Return of Jesus Christ. Like many other Bible doctrines, Pastor Mike followed the Holy Ghost’s guidance in considering nothing but the Scriptures to find out the truth. Even though he had been taught the rapture since his youth, he put aside his preconceived ideas, and hopes you will too as we delve into this two, or maybe even three part series. There is no argument that the word „rapture” is not in the Bible. The word rapture is transliterated from the Latin Bible, which is a translation of the Greek word that means „to be caught up.” 

Jesus said that He would return for His bride and the living and the dead would be caught up to meet Him in the air. The two angels who stood by at the Ascension provide the second witness to that statement. As to the when of the rapture, the only thing known presently is that it’s at the Last Trump. God will give His people greater understanding the closer we get to the event; prophecy is best understood after it happens. Notwithstanding, Christians are not appointed to wrath, the purpose of the rapture is not to save believers out of the earth before the really bad stuff from the Book of Revelation starts to happen. 

Pastor Mike beautifully explains how the promises of God to Israel will be fulfilled through the church. Christians have been going through horrible things for two thousand years, and we are no more special than those who have been burned at the stake, hacked to death or imprisoned for their faith. The translation and the return of Jesus Christ is a magnificent love story that was even foretold in the pages of the Old Testament through people like David, Joseph and Ruth. This teaching will fill your heart with wonder to realize the depth of God’s love for His people, His bride and especially for Israel.

In his previous 'Darkness' books - Into the Darkness , Darkness Descending , and Through the Darkness - bestselling author Harry Turtledove has been telling an epic tale of a world at war; a dark mirror of the terrible wars of our own twentieth century, set in a world where battles are fought with magic rather than technology.

Imagine the drama and terror of the Second World War in such a place. The death, the destruction, the sheer scale of the horror is the same - but the bullets are beams of eldritch fire, the tanks are great horned and taloned beasts, and fighters and bombers are dragons raining fire upon their targets. This is the world of the Derlavaian continent, a world that is slowly but surely being conquered, mile after bloody mile, by the forces of the Algarvian Empire... forces whose most terrible battle magics are powered by the slaughter of innocent people.

In this, the forth volume of the series, following on from Through the Darkness , the war for the future of Derlavai builds towards its crescendo as the mages of Kuusamo, aided by their former rivals from Lagoas, work desperately to create a newer form of magic. Magic of unprecedented destructive power. Magic that will change the course of the future.

A 20 year old, runs away from his conservative father to the remote town where his mother died two years ago. He meets an alluring young woman.
