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 for "The Spirit Bridge."

Reece, Dana, Brandon, and Marcus have achieved staggering success in the spiritual realm . . . but each is reeling from 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 to be the trump card--a hidden strategy set in motion before 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. These two will be pivotal in the final war.

If only the Warriors knew which side Simon and Miyo are truly on. If only they knew how to fight against Zennon's final assault.

"The Spirit Bridge" is the epic conclusion to acclaimed author James L. Rubart's Well Spring series, which will propel each of the Warriors Riding on a quest of true identity, ultimate freedom, and a final battle that will leave them changed forever.

My review:
   James Rubart instantly became one of my favorite authors when I read his first book, Rooms. It is a fiction book I think all Christians should read, and is a book that can be life-changing. It is that good.

  He went on to impress me with his next couple of novels, then he did something new for him: he did a trilogy. His other books were stand alone novels, and I admit I was a bit skeptical, but I was wrong. Wow, what a ride. This has been a fantastic series that has really made me think about spiritual warfare and how much the devil does fight us.

  I have been eagerly waiting for this, the third and last book in the Well Spring Series, and it was definitely worth the wait. All of the group is back, and they are back at the special kind of spiritual warfare they have been so proficient at, but this time something creeps in and lulls most of them, even the wisest and most experienced among them.

  The ways the characters in the book are fought are ways we can be fought, and though the book was enjoyable, it was also a sobering reminder of how careful we must be.

 The idea of physically going into someone's soul and fighting is obviously fictional - very fictional, but it was a very neat way to show the reality of a spiritual world that is set on destroying us, and that spiritual warfare is very real.

  This may be the best book of the trilogy. There was more at stake than in the other books, it had a very climatic battle that had me turning the pages as fast as I could, and a great ending that left me satisfied, yet wanting more. Not everything was tied up in a neat bow, but some things were resolved. 

 I definitely recommend the series, but they must be read in order, or you'll have no clue what is going on.
