The prophet saw "four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. I asked my accompanying angel the meaning of what I heard, and what the four angels were about to do.
He said to me that it was God that restrained the powers, and that He gave His angels charge over things on the earth; that the four angels had power from God to hold the four winds, and that they were about to let them go; but while their hands were loosening, and the four winds were about to blow, the merciful eye of Jesus gazed on the remnant that were not sealed, and He raised His hands to the Father and pleaded with Him that He had spilled His blood for them.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I started this series with book 2, but I thought that didn't seem to matter much with this book or book 2. I didn't feel like I was missing things from a previous books at all. There was good action and humor throughout. The narration was good, too.
All in all, a fun and entertaining experience. This is easily the best book in the series up to this point. It's a leap back in time and depicts the events that have been referenced in the previous books with excellent continuity coupled detailed and graphic descriptions of the happenings. Day of the Destroyer is a great prequel. It is interesting to read how Destroyer began. I actually feel bad for him at some points. I enjoyed all of the characters new and old. I took 2 stars off the story because of the unnecessary and out of place sex scenes that did nothing to advance the story.
I get that it takes place in the 70's but it could be tones down a little.
Also I did not like how one of the characters was raped and then a few days later is throwing herself at and having sex with a guy she just met. I understand she is grateful to this guy for helping her in a time of need however she was a virgin when she was raped so it is extremely uncharacteristic of her to be promiscuous. I would seriously recommend the author re-write her part to show how a real rape victim would behave.
Other than that The narration is great with good pacing and easy to understand character voices. I look forward to more in the series. Despite having enjoyed the previous two books in this series, I must admit to being little skeptical about this installment due to it being a prequel, the main timeline had been progressing nicely and the incidents in this book had generally been covered when talking about the history of that current group.
Luckily, my skepticism was unfounded and the author provided us with numerous interesting characters who really brought this story we had already heard about to life. This book is set back in the 70's and provides details of a blackout suffered by New York and the origin of the baddie that has probably been the toughest adversary of Just Cause through several incarnations of the team, the Destroyer, a technical prodigy who is probably best described as a psychotic teenage version of Tony Stark.
