The Regime: Evil Advances (Before They Were Left Behind, Book 2)
Dynamic Romanian multimillionaire Nicolae Carpathia's sphere of influence steadily grows as he parlays his looks, charm, charisma, and intellectual brilliance into success in business and politics. But is it mere coincidence that those who oppose or offend him suffer to the point of death? Meanwhile, a young Buck Williams begins his journalistic career. Pilot Rayford Steele gains more responsibility at work and at home. Scientist Chaim Rosenzweig begins work on a secret formula that could change the world. All three go about their daily lives, unaware of each other or of the powerful young man from Romania. Around the world, the stage is being set for the cataclysmic event that will change the world forever.
Just Before They Were Left Behind
By Jeffrey Leeper "kem2070"
- December 27, 2005
As part of the Left Behind series, this is one of the two prequels. This one picks up where The Rising left off and ends before the events in Left Behind. We basically have five stories interwoven together.
First, we read of Rayford Steele's climb at Pan-Continental Airlines. Hattie Durham appears in the background. This story blends with Irene Steele's desire to join the New Hope church with her family. Here, the writers show us the mounting tension between Irene and Rayford as well as between Irene and Chloe. The arguments we read are arguments we hear (or use) every day. This helps connect us with the book's message.
Rayford's professional life will blend into the sotry of Jordanian fighter pilot Abdullah "Smitty" Ababneh and his black market business. We learn that he and Rayford have a history, the extent of which isn't quite pointed out in later books.

better then the first pre-qual

- November 22, 2005
The first prequal book dealt mostly with Carpathia's frumpy mother and while it was fun to read the conspiracy thoery behind the whole plot surrounding her and her son Nicolae, you have to admit there wasn't much to connect with the original series. This prequal deals with Carpathia and you can see his true nature before he masquerades as a good guy to the world, in the original series. We get to see Rayford and Irene's married life and how stressful it really was. We get to see how good Buck really is at writting, so much so, a girl won't date him because she feels he is too in love with his carrerr. Buck's mom dies and Buck does not make it until her funeral which upsets his family, esp. his brother. Someone said this book didn't have enough action, but I am not sure what they were expecting. this book takes place before billions of people dissapear, before God pours out supernatural judgments, before the Antichrist is possesed by Satan and wants all the Christians slaughtered.
