Item Description...
In this modern thriller, underground Islamic extremists force religious conversions to create a region free of Christian and Jewish influence. Those who won't convert to Allah and follow Mohammed are dying in terrorist acts or mysteriously disappearing. Amber Robbins, a top U.S. reporter in the Middle East, feels no one is safe until she can expose the radical intolerants.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thought-provoking and gripping page-turner.  Feb 15, 2007
Mike Yorkey's novel will make you reconsider anything you think you know about the tensions in the Middle East. It's spooky to note he wrote this BEFORE recent events.

I lost sleep reading this because I could not put it down. Then I lost more sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about the plausibility of the story.
Entertaining and informative  Dec 13, 2006
If you want a better understanding of Muslim fanaticals while moving swiftly through an entertaining plot filled with a variety of surprises, then read By The Sword, from Mike Yorkey and Rick Myatt. You'll come away understanding what it means to die for your beliefs.
The book opens with all of the guests in a hotel brutally murdered by Muslim fanatics. American investigative reporter Amber Robbins sets out to discover who's responsible, putting her own life on the line. She probes into the slayings and discovers that Islamic extremists are giving non-Muslims a choice---conversion or death.
As a first novel, there are a few read bumps mostly in the dialogue, but all in all this novel delivers and is worth the read. The characters are far from stereotypical but are believable and interesting. You'll root for Amber as she sets out to solve the mystery.

Great Twists, Good Story  Jul 27, 2006
If you're looking for a modern-day thriller with good spiritual undertones, pick up By the Sword. The pace is good. I continued to want to turn the page. And often the authors twisted the plot in surprising ways. I really was blessed by the emotional interweaving of the persecuted, underground church. These snapshots made the book both educational and insightful.
Suspense thriller That will keep you turning pages  May 17, 2006
Having read many Tom Cancy books, where it takes 200 pages to set the story line, "By The Sword" was a treat to just sit and read. This Christian novel was full of suspense, intrigue, and over all, well written. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and can't wait until the next Amber Robbins thriller is out.
strong cautionary thriller  May 6, 2006
During Passover, commandos assault the Jewish Bottstein family in their home in Jerusalem threatening to kill them or else. When pregnant Kareh chose or else they kill her and her unborn; the other members of her family including her three years old son were already dead. Other attacks occur in Jerusalem during the night. Washington National newspaper reporter Amber Robbins has covered the Middle East for two years, but has never seen or heard of such a coordinated slaughter as the Passover Massacre.

While the West claims extremists caused the horrible destruction, Amber connects the massacre to recent bombings of churches and synagogues. Soon Amber identifies the fanatical sect Islamic Revolution behind the murders as the charismatic Ayatollah Hoseni demands a sea of Islam with no infidels anywhere; convert to Allah or die. While the attacks are spreading and growing in intensity, the West clings to its obstinate message that only a few are causing the lethal problems, but Amber believes otherwise; she feels Ayatollah Hoseni has powerful sponsors including Iran and perhaps even the royal Saudi family.

This action thriller seems over the edge unless readers have read Richard Clark's Against All Enemies or Scorpion's Gate; if they have, BY THE SWORD suddenly seems plausible. Fans will appreciate this frightening tale that contains a strong cautionary message to beware because any extreme fundamentalist group can prove dangerous when they insist it is only their way (maybe Wal-Mart should call it the Hanukkah or Kwanza season). Amber is a courageous soul, but is clearly out of her depths in her opposition to the Ayatollah Hoseni and his powerful supporters.
