The Overseer by Conlan Brown is the second book in the Firstborn series. Picking up shortly after the events of the first book, John Temple is the Overseer of the Firstborn. The three groups are finally starting to work together: the Prima who see the past, the Ona who see the present and the Domani who see the future. John's decision as Overseer have put the group in danger, and things get even worse as Hannah tries to track down three girls who were kidnapped by human traffickers and Devin tries to stop the assassination of a United States senator. They are warned by a strange man named Angelo that if they stop the assassination, the Thresher will be released to hunt down and destroy the Firstborn. This knowledge splits the organization in two sides, those who support stopping the assassin and those are are in fear of their lives. Brown does a wonderful job of creating a world in which no one is completely trustworthy, and intentions are never what they seem. Political machinations, fast-paced action, and tortured romance keep the reader hooked from the first page. Brown creates an interesting dilemma in that is the life of one man worth saving if it will cost the lives of countless others. What is a good man compelled to do with the knowledge of another's impending death? It's a thrilling suspense novel with a punch of deeper questions about what it means to be a Christian.
