Spirit Bridge by James Rubart

The warriors riding have battled in astounding supernatural realms. Set captives free. And awakened thousands of hearts. But now their only chance of survival depends on calling forth the spirit bridge.

Reece, Dana, Brandon, and Marcus have achieved staggering success in spiritual realms . . . but each is reeling from recent vicious attacks. They need rest. 

A break from the war.

But the warlord Zennon is raging and will give them no quarter. The demon holds what he believes is a trump card—a hidden strategy set in motion before the Warriors Riding even began—that will detonate the team from the inside out. And he’s just set it loose.

The street-magician Simon—finally free of Zennon’s alternate-reality prison—is racing to remember his past before his ignorance obliterates his destiny. Then there’s Miyo, a brash young warrior with advanced knowledge of spiritual realities and supernatural armor even Reece doesn’t know about. They will be pivotal in the final war against the Warriors Riding.

If only the Warriors knew which side Simon and Miyo are truly on.

The epic battle is coming to an end, and I for one can’t wait to see the results!  Hang on, this is going to be a wild ride.

The Warriors, back from defeating Zennon, are ready for a little R&R, or so they think.  A new Prophecy has been revealed to Reece and this one may be the one that brings the world to an end.  Simon’s world is in turmoil as he struggles to find his place in the world now that he is free from the alternate-reality that has kept him a prisoner for so long.  Brandon is still confused with his direction as the Voice and his feelings for Dana.  Marcus and Dana are still exciting over their part in the success they had in the spiritual battle against Zennon.  With this new prophecy, though, things are about to change.  Zennon is raging from his most recent defeat and will stop at nothing to gain the power to defeat the Warriors.  This time, though, there is a new Warrior and they’ve never seen anything like her.  Will Brandon ever get his voice back? What is the history of Simon and how does he fit into the battle?  Who is this mysterious new Warrior and where did she come from?  Run across the bridge and BUY THIS BOOK!!

I feel like saying that Jim Rubart continues to amaze me, but I feel like that would do a disservice to this great writer.  I shouldn’t be amazed that he continues to impress me or that he continues to fill my head with great Fiction.  From the first book that I read by him (“Rooms”) to this one, each one is definitely getting better and better and cements my “Favorite Author” nomination (Yeah, yeah, it’s all in my head, but ok since no one’s really listening).  I continue to enjoy how his characters have everyday conversations with Him, just like they are old friends.  But I also love that his characters are fallible (just like me) but are continuously loved by our Father.  The story line is finally wrapped up in this final book clearly and concise, but not to such a point that he can’t bring us a reunion book later in life (hint, hint Mr. Rubart!) 

Is this a "guy's book"?  This book, this whole series, heck, anything written by Jim Rubart is a definite “guy’s book” and should be read, reread and read again.  If there are any men out there looking for a book for their book club, this series of books is the best series to start with.  The intrigue, the stress, the spiritual battle, the fallacy of the human mind, are all wrapped up into a great book that every man should read.

About The Author

After an early rejection in the 8th grade, I listened to the lie that had its deep in my heart, “You Can’t Write”.
I believed the lie. But the dream refused to die throughout my teens. I subscribed to Writer’s Digest magazine. I dabbled in short stories. In my 20s I even went to a few one-day writing seminars. But I never showed my writing to anyone.
Then in 2002, my wife announced she was going on a fast. Why? She didn’t know. How long? Same answer. After two and a half days a light bulb exploded over my head as I rode next to my wife in our car. I felt God say, “I’ve given you the skill and desire to write, when are you going to step into your destiny?”
I turned to Darci and said, “I know why you’re fasting. I’m supposed to be a novelist.”
She stared at me and said, “I’m hungry for three days, and you get the answer?”
We both burst into laughter. It was the perfect response to lighten a moment where I had to make a serious decision. Would I choose to step in? The obvious answer is yes. I dove in full-force to writing my first novel (ROOMS) and finished it in late ’05.

I won’t bore you with the details of how it was rejected and ultimately purchased (in early summer 2008) so suffice it to say it took significant perseverance and belief. That’s why, whatever your dream is, I encourage you to keep pressing in.  They can come true.
