Review:



Phillip pens "Rapture" in a well developed, fast paced, action packed, apocalyptic story line. His characters are very well defined, interesting and strong when they take you to this futurist world of good vs evil. I was totally captivated by this book and it only took me a few hours to read it.  A must read for all action apocalyptic fans.

I give "Rapture" a 5 star rating.
