Skip Jordan and his friends have faced the powers of darkness before; they have confronted the deceptions of witchcraft, and done battle with demonic entities. They have seen The Veil of Deception, and prevailed against seemingly impossible odds, but what they are called to face now is more ominous than anything they have known before. Skip Jordan is dreaming again. Their former friend Roger Wilson, missing for almost a year, appears in the dream. He also sees Ntambo, the African preacher who had saved Skip from death when he was only four years old. Against the backdrop of Victoria Falls in Africa, or, as the locals know it, The Smoke That Thunders, he sees his black friend hounded over the edge into the gorge below. Skip has no doubt the dream is a call for he and his friends to launch a rescue mission to save Roger, and others, from the clutches of witchcraft. Only two months short of his fifteenth birthday, they leave for Africa on an adventure that could very well be their last. They face attacks from demons, lying wonders, and end up in a secret place known as The Lions Den. In this evil place no escape is possible; only death awaits them. Will their faith be sufficient to carry them through? Will their youth and inexperience cause them to fail? Or is there help on the way, both human and divine, that will lead them to final victory? This second volume in the SKIP JORDAN series, told with a blend of fantasy, drama and adventure, cannot fail to excite, challenge, and bless all who read it.
