Spirit of Independence
by Keith Rommel

Category: Fiction / Horror
276 pages; ISBN: 193402191

Rating: 9/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


In 1947, Travis Winter was on a covert operation in East Berlin when his captain shot him in cold blood. As he lay dying, a hand reached up from within the ground and pulled Travis though the layers of the earth until he reached Hell. The devil using the name Navarro insists they must talk, but before they chat angels arrive freeing Travis.

For the next half a century, Travis has been the SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE in God’s Army. He serves as a modern day angel waiting to fight on the front lines when the Day of reckoning arrives. However his five decades of angelic living makes Travis question God’s ruthlessness so he joins Navarro’s minion as the cold war between Heaven and Hell has heated up to what seems like the final solution.

Anyone who enjoys the “Left behind” novels will gain immense pleasure from SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE, the first tale of the “Spirit Chronicles” series. Kith Rommel visualizes images so that even an atheist will believe in Heaven and Hell. Travis is one heck of a lead protagonist, as he seems so human even in the afterlife that he is a sort of modern day doubting everyman. Keith Rommel displays his talent with this powerful inspirational fiction.
