Back Cover: The Warriors Riding have battled in astounding supernatural realms, set captives free, and awakened thousands of hearts. But now their only chance of survival depends on calling for The Spirit Bridge.

Reece, Dana, Brandon, and Marcus have achieved staggering success in the spiritual realm . . . but each is reeling from vicious attacks. They need rest. A break from the war.

But the warlord Zennon is raging and will give them no quarter. The demon holds what he believes to be the trump card—a hidden strategy set in motion before Warriors Riding even began—that will detonate the team from the inside out. And he's just set it loose.

The street magician Simon—finally free of Zennon's alternate reality prison—is racing to remember his past before his ignorance obliterates his destiny. Then there's Miyo—a brash young warrior with advanced knowledge of spiritual realities and supernatural armor even Reece doesn't know about. These two will be pivotal in the final war.

If only the Warriors knew which side Simon and Miyo are truly on. If only they knew how to fight against Zennon's final assault.

The Spirit Bridge is the epic conclusion to acclaimed author James L. Rubart's Well Spring series, which will propel each of the Warriors Riding on a quest of true identity, ultimate freedom, and a final battle that will leave them changed forever.

REVIEW: I’m thankful for the review copy of a story that not only lifted the veil to the spiritual battle ragging around me but this book told readers how to fight the enemy and listen to the holy spirit guidance. The best part it was done in an engaging, non-preachy, enthralling way! Loved that!

I was blown away at James L. Rubarts imagination and style of writing this series; as he had Reece, Dana, Brandon and Marcus enter into different realities when they prepared for battle. I liked how this author showed how clever and beautiful the enemy and his minions can be too.

The thing that unnerved me was the introduction of Miyo and Simon into the inner circle of the Warriors Riding. I wasn’t sure if Miyo was from the dark side with all her moves and how she went about doing things in the spirit world. I was on the edge of my seat. I didn’t know if Simon was on the up and up either. This author did make me squirm as I wasn’t sure what would happen on the next page to the cast in the Warriors Riding I cared deeply about.

This author does a great job in revealing who God is and gives reminder of how much he loves us. Reece reminds Brandon, “We have the spirit of God of the universe in us. The God who created the earth. The God who moved time backward as recorded in Isiah thirty-eight. The God who says we can move mountains with the faith of a mustard seed. The God who…”

Brandon hears God speak to him after Reece talks to him, “I've never loved you for your voice, or your songs,or what you've brought millions of people. I love you for you, Brandon. Now you have a choice; to love me for me…But it is your decision.” I love that!

Thank you James Rubart for a brilliant imaginative, thought providing, suspenseful novel that not only entertained and encouraged my spirit but also kept me up late because I couldn’t put it down. All three of the novels in this series were like that for me.  I couldn’t have asked for more! This book has a very satisfying ending; one you’ll be thinking about for a long time.

I highly recommend this book for a great summer read and as a book club pick. The author has discussion questions in the back of the book that will help ignite lively discussion at your book club meeting. This series is a keeper. I know that I’ll be checking back to things in the book that I can apply to my life and its battles!
