Ascent From Darkness is Michael Leehan's story, and I can almost guarantee you've . Then, finally, I cried through the last chapter of the book. Michael describes how the Father encountered him, and pulled him from the deepest darkness a human being could experience on earth.

Ascent From Darkness is Michael Leehan's story, and I can almost guarantee you've never heard or read a story like this one. Ascent from Darkness will remove blinders. I don't even mean I was sniffling and teary-eyed: I pretty much sobbed. Michael's deliverance is an amazing lesson/reminder of God's amazing power and love.

I read this book after Steven E. Wilson's Winter in Kandahar with eager anticipation. Wilson's ability to write fiction that reads like non-fiction is uncanny. I deeply appreciate his plot and character development as well as his ability to capture the terrain of this cast and the pathos of the times. What a timely book that speaks of hope in the midst of despair, a struggle to "go on" when so much says "quit!" It is also a joy to read an author whose books reflect an excellent use of the English language. As a former college professor, I would strongly urge schools to have Wilson's books used as supplemental reading texts for reasons of content, style, and plot and character development!
It is a very entertaining book, with a lot of emotions, the descriptions are excellente, and the story is a breathtaking one. Congrats to the writer!!!!
Swimming upstream here compared with all the other glowing reviews, but I found this book disappointing. Good plot development is repeatedly undermined when difficult situations are resolved in a few paragraphs by unconvincing, fortuitous, turns of events, usually with a happy ending leaving no inconvenient loose ends. Characters declare undying love for each other having spent only a few hours together, if that. All-in-all an unbelievable storyline with irrational character behaviour. Not without its problems either, but "Winter in Kandahar" is a better book.
It's difficult to understand the highly rated reviews. The book is poorly written, offensively sophomoric, and a weak attempt to justify a political point of view. Perhaps, however, it was unfair trying to read it right after finishing the five star RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST.
After reading Winter in Kandahar, I couldn't wait to order Ascent from Darkness, though I don't typically order until they come out in paperback. This book brought home the enormous difficulties of the Iraqi war, coupled with several wonderfully intriquing romances throughout the book. I love the way Dr. Wilson weaves his tale with such rich descriptions of his characters; I finished the book in record time, feeling as though I had known each of "his" people myself. Both Ascent from Darkness and Winter in Kandahar are well worthy of screenwriting.
I am so thrilled that Stone Waverly is back!

I do not like to read books about war, but a friend convinced me to read Steve Wilson's first book, Winter in Kandahar, and I couldn't put the book down. There began my love of Stone Waverly.

So naturally, between Steve Wilson's compelling storytelling and style of writing, I was thrilled to learn of his second book, Ascent From Darkness. I was equally as thrilled to learn that Stone Waverly continues on his journey.

I have not changed my mind and decided to read books on war, but Ascent from Darkness is a book about mysterious happenings wrapped in the most mysterious of all happenings - love.

May Mr. Wilson keep me anxiously turning the pages of Stone Waverly's life adventures for years to come!

P.S. I expect some smart movie producer to purchase the movie rights to both Winter In Kandahar and Ascent From Darkness and turn them into the blockbusters they so deserve to be!
This is a great book that is immersed in the present day events of Iraq and Syria. I think the writing is even better than Winter in Kandahar, although I enjoyed the latter plot more than any book I've read in years. I have no idea what the previous reviewer was talking about. In Ascent from Darkness, I loved learning about the Kurds in Iraq and the relationships between the Kurds and the Arabs in that part of the world. Also the Special Forces characters were very believable. I see that Mr. Wilson's new novel "The Ghosts of Anatolia: An Epic Journey to Forgiveness" is coming out soon. I can't wait!
Steve Wilson's first work of fiction, Winter in Kandahar, is action-packed and, at times, quite difficult to put down. This timely thriller had it all - war, romance, science, international intrigue, betrayal, culture, family, greed, courage and perseverance under tremendous adversity, terrorism, and more. I very much enjoyed the short chapters, quick scene changes, and his writing style. This was a superb story, which I think really would make for a marvelous movie. I'm impressed with the skill with which Dr. Wilson tells the story, considering the cultural differences. Even more impressive is that this was his first work of fiction. Dr. Wilson's second book, Ascent from Darkness, has everything that his first book has and is even better. As in his previous book, this second adventure thriller was full of action and romance and extremely difficult to put down. Set at the beginning of the Iraq war in 2003, this novel makes it difficult to discern fact from fiction. At points, it even brought a tear to my eye. This story would be great for the big screen.
