Some would call THE SIXTH TRUMPET a dystopian fantasy, and it is . . . but it’s also possible that tomorrow, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) could be detonated over the Midwest and throw America back into the 1800s, before electricity and instant communication we enjoy today.
The “Days of Dread Trilogy” stories are packed with adventure as their young hero, Jackson Allison, his genius and devoted sidekick Albert Einstein Hawking, and his sort-of girlfriend Aria face dangers at every turn trying to save others.
An editor asked, “Why would you write a book about the end times for mid-grade and young adult readers?”
”To let them know through reading them that when tough times get here—and they will come—I want my readers to realize God will be right there with them and protect and provide. My hope is to build their faith.”
Jackson starts out an agnostic, but God loves agnostics, too. Jesus died on the cross for them like He did for you and me. He loves Jackson so much that He shows him His power and provision time and time again—
Of course, the boy’s mother and sister, and grandparents, and Uncle Roy are all praying for his salvation. We know what can happen when God’s people pray! How many times have you prayeds, “Father! Whatever it takes, draw my loved one to Your heart!”
Jackson, though, is a stubborn as a Texas Ranger on a mission! His lieutenant succumbs to Holy Spirit’s calling in this story, but not Jackson, although he is being drawn to believe by all the things he cannot explain.
Who do you know who would love these stories? Besides you, I mean! I know you will! Who do you know who needs to read them?

I have had the pleasure of reading the first book from Caryl McAdoo’s Days of Dread Trilogy, The King's Highway. I was excited to read book two, The Sixth Trumpet. I thought it was pretty good. It is designed for younger readers but I think others my age would like it just as well. I loved Jackson and wanted to see what would happen with him in the end. I liked the faith filled message that would inspire many.
I am giving The Sixth Trumpet four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean fantasy and between the ages of nine and thirteen. I look forward to the third installment from the Days of Dread Trilogy.
I received a copy of The Sixth Trumpet from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
