Wrath & Righteousness Episode Eight is Evil in the Darkness


“The battle was in motion. The same battle from long ago. The battle for the souls of men, for the soul of their country, for their own family. Eons of waiting and preparing. And now the final days were here.”

In the wake of a debilitating EMP attack on America, the rule of law has vanished. Amidst the chaos, the forces of Darkness use all means necessary to consolidate power into a new, illegal government formed without oversight or consent.

As this clandestine group of powerful men prepares to introduce their handpicked leader to the world, they learn of a major problem: The former Secretary of Defense, thought to be dead, may have somehow survived the attack. As next in the line of succession for the presidency, his presence would threaten the group’s entire plan.

With time running out before the public reveal of the chosen president and the SecDef’s life in danger, an all-or-nothing plan is hatched to infiltrate the illegal government and expose them to the world.

Here’s author Chris Stewart (now a U.S. congressman) chatting on Glenn Beck’s radio show about the latest action in his Wrath & Righteousness series:

This excerpt from Evil in the Darkness demonstrates the gathering storm of demonic forces that threatens the world as we know it…as well as the forces of good that battle right back:

The evil all around him thickened. He could feel them. He could feel him. He felt like throwing up. The darkness was so real, so oppressive, it sucked the life right out of his soul. Depressing and despairing, the evil gathered nearer. He could almost hear the voices of the spirits that were watching them from the empty halls.

Sam shivered, stopping on the stairwell, unsure of what to do or where to go. His mother moved beside him, her eyes barely visible in the dark. She leaned into him and whispered in his ear, “Do you feel that, Sam?” He sensed the tears of fear that wet her eyes.

He tried to speak but couldn’t answer, so he slowly moved his head. Then, despite the utter darkness, a thought sprang into his head. Something from the Bible? He wasn’t sure, but the words came with clarity to his mind. “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.

He shivered once again.

This was Lucifer’s day of glory, his night of splendor, and the last days of his pride.

The rulers of the darkness. Sam forced himself not to cry.

So that was what they were up against. But at least he finally knew.

Turning, he raised his fist and raged back at the darkness. “You do not own me or my family. We are your enemies. We are your weakness. And this is not our time. Do what you will with your mortal servants, but you will not move us from this place!”

Against the backdrop of torn-from-the-headlines Middle Eastern drama, the fast-paced Wrath & Righteousness series explores humanity’s role in the eternal battle between good and evil. Check out the trailer for the very first episode:
