This sequel to "The Overton Window" is, as promised by the author, better than its predecessor. The good guy characters are more likeable even though they are the same as in the previous book. Molly Ross, for example, who was a cypher in "Overton," comes a little more alive here. Not very much, but anything is a great improvement. I suppose it helps that Beck and his team that produced this novel, had to work harder with a character who became blind at the end of the previous book. It also helps that she is no longer trying to fool anyone about who she is, and most importantly she is no longer fooling the reader.

The title refers to the mythical god's eye that sees all, and to the attempt by governments in our own age to develop the capacity to spy on everyone all the time.

As with "Overton," if you do not wish to believe that anything in this novel could really happen, then do not read the material at the end that tells of the real life events that inspired much of the book. Come to think of it, you might also want to avoid newspapers since the mainstream press has lately taken notice of the surveilance society in which we now live.

Also better developed here than in the prequel are the heroes, Noah Gardner and Hollis. Hollis was very real and likeable in the first novel, but we only got a glimpse of him. (We never knew that his first name is Thomas or that he generally goes by Thom.) Here he becomes a major character and is likely to be the favorite of many readers.

I thought that the contents of the letter from Noah's mother to his father did not rise to its importance as a turning point in the plot. The old videos of his mother that Noah later discovers make a bit more plausible impact.

This sequel also works because there is more action than in the first book. In this regard, it rises closer to the level of a Nelson DeMille or even a Vince Flynn yarn. ( )

This w's hard to put down! Scary to think how easily this country could reach the state depicted here. ( )

Not nearly as good as "The Overton Window." The style was so different I actually had thought that Glenn Beck used a different Ghost Writer for this one, but the same three "with ..." authors showed on both titles, in a different order so who knows.

This one is much more along the lines of what I would expect a Beck fictional work to be. Ideas like "sure there's 'patiroits' and 'liberty lovers' but be careful because a lot of them are worthless racists, that don't love 'Merika."

You are given the sense that the previous novel's protagonist is killed within the first few pages of this one. This is part of the drop on the internal struggle of Noah Gardner as to which side is the right side. They also introduce the "puppet master" an executive going on 130 years old. Its really unbelievable.

Tom Hollis plays a much more intense roll in this book, the audio recording made it difficult to reconcile as well as the charterers voice is so incredibly different. The reader did not stay true to the description of him being a bear of a man with a distinct high child like voice, instead hie gave him the voice of a bear of a man

In and of itself I likely would have been impressed by its story of "fighting the new world order" to life, but this pales in comparison to its original. I would have rather seen it as a separate piece altogether. ( )

Title: The Eye of Molech
Author: Glenn Beck
Pages: 432
Year: 2013
Publisher: Threshold Editions
Every now and again I look through bookselling websites to see the latest releases as well as upcoming releases. I enjoy reading the minute information shared about what the novel is about, and if possible, some reviews. There can be with some novels a chasm between those who loved the story and on the other end those who hated it. Now, it isn’t like that with all novels, even with some being written by the same author. Discovering lately there are vast publishing companies springing up, some publishers closing and others changing their format, which then opens up an opportunity for the author to revamp their work then republishing it.
Recently, I was skimming the latest novels when I came across The Eye of Molech by Glenn Beck. The author’s name was familiar to me, but his writing was brand new. So, I took the plunge and ordered a copy as I enjoy political thrillers. Molech was an ancient god in the near east centuries ago in land where boundaries and kingdoms would change often.
Beck’s first novel, The Overton Window, I haven’t read yet and the story started there is continued here in his latest work. Not having read the first novel made understanding the story a little hard at first, but within a few pages Beck shares enough of the background from The Overton Window to catch readers up so they can enjoy this second suspense-filled thriller. In an eerie way, much of the plot has been drawn from real life. At the end of the book, the author shares various sources to do further reading on topics brought up in a chapter.
Some can see the writing on any wall as plain as day while others claim ignorance in not seeing it or in choosing to not see it. Here, in the writing, characters are drawn into situations that call for heroics from everyday American citizens. Molly Ross is a praying woman who wants to do what God has called her to do regardless of the price. In some ways, she reminds me of Queen Esther. Other characters have hidden agendas or very overt ones. The whole plot centers on undermining the Constitution of The United States of America. The call going forth is to wake up and become informed, involved and committed to the domestic or foreign aggressors.
While there is some mild use of foul language, I really got engrossed in the story with each page I turned. Glenn Beck does an excellent job of various twists and turns in the plot that the reader will not want to close the book until the end! Contained between the covers is an emotional and heart-wrenching set of scenes filled with action and adventure. I hope you take time to read this work, just remember there is mild use of swear words but none that detracts from the patriotic theme!
My rating is 4 ½ stars.

The battle lines in this bitter rivalry are as old as civilization itself: On one side, an unlikely band of ordinary Americans ready to make their last stand in defense of self-rule, freedom, and liberty, and on the other, an elite cabal of self-styled tyrants who believe that unlimited power should be wielded only by the chosen few. That group, led by an aging, trillionaire puppet-master named Aaron Doyle, will stop at nothing to destroy the myth that man is capable of ruling himself.
