Dark Rule by D.I. Telbat A REVIEW

The COIL Series adventure continues in Dark Rule, Book Three by D.I. Telbat, taking the reader from the South Pacific to the Greek Isles—from the depths of the ocean to the cone of an unstable volcano.

Nathan Isaacson—presumed dead by fellow agents but is now trained by master spy, Luigi Putelli—begins his solo spy career under ex-CIA agent Corban Dowler. When Corban loses contact with a beautiful Chinese agent, he sends Nathan to the South Pacific to locate her.

As Nathan infiltrates the underwater exploration team of a dark foe, Trevor Niles—who is bent on ruling at the expense of the lives of separatist Christians—it proves to be a spy game that tests Nathan's every spiritual and physical muscle.

Two years later, darkness has settled over the Island of Zalzuna in the Greek Isles, when the volcanic island under communist rule is ready to erupt. Nathan is sent to the island to gain intel on missing missionaries, but the light of captive Christians may be no more.

Heather Kooper and her team of Special Forces Christians are called in to assist in a possible rescue attempt, joining two adventurous teenagers—Walter, a chess prodigy, and Brad, a Major League hopeful. Following the trail of the missing Jamison family, the team unearths a dark scheme. COIL operative Nathan Isaacson prays he can save them from the outreached claws about to ensnare them all—even if it costs him his life!

Dark Rule, Book Three in the COIL Series, is a 98,000-word Christian adventure, with cover art by Sean Johnson. Join COIL once again as their light continues to shine in the dark recesses of the world, but there is no redemption without sacrifice…

D. I. Telbat is a Christian author who writes in many genres, but especially Christian action-adventure, and suspense. He wrote his first novel at age 14, and hasn't stopped since!

Telbat's Tablet, David's website (, offers free weekly Christian adventure and suspense short stories, or serialized novels, to entertain, but also to bring attention to the Christian Persecuted Church. Because of his interest in the Persecuted Church and missions, many of D.I. Telbat's stories are about persecuted Christians, their hardships, their sacrifices, and their rescues. Several of his novels include espionage, as well as spiritual warfare.

On his site, he also shares his author reflections, writing experiences, and occasional challenges to the Christian church, and there is a complete biography, testimonials, and publishing credits and honors. The credits include both print and digital publications, anthologies, and a 2nd place People's Choice Award with print magazine, The Storyteller.

Getting into trouble with the law as a young man became a turning point in David's life. The Lord used that experience to draw David into a personal relationship with Him. Re-focusing his life for Christ, David now seeks to honor God with his life and his writing.

David studied writing in college, and worked in the newspaper field, but now he is doing what he loves: writing and ministry. He is involved with several ministries, which includes writing and directing Christian plays. When not busy with ministry, he focuses on writing novels, short stories, blog posts, and prison ministry newsletters.

He has kept his home office in the Northwest U.S. where his assistant, Dee, lives and helps with his writing and editing needs.

There is no redemption without sacrifice.

  I just love the COIL series. So Dark Rule, Book Three by D.I. Telbat is just another fantastic book. I love to hear how the agents fight against the powers of evil and satan. They do it without killing any one and they always give the evil people a chance to do right and join the Lord’s side.
  After book two I wondered if we would hear anymore from Nathan. His fellow agents and friends thought he died. Now Nathan works along. In Dark Rule it is divided into two parts with a span of two years between them. I really liked how the stories were different but were pulled together by a common thread.
  In the different cases these guys go on, when they get into a very tight spot I just don’t see any way out, but D.I. Telbat finds a way and it is very exciting and interesting at how they always work out.
  These stories are very full of action, adventure and suspense. I could read D.I. Telbat’s books in one sitting, but then the book would end to soon. I’m really looking forward to book four.
  If you love suspenseful, action-packed books these books are for you. I highly recommend the COIL series and Dark Rule is an excellent read.
