    Am I the only person who has the question as to why these books are being sold as Christian fiction? Other than references to the blood, I just dont get it. If there is supposed to be some parallel to Jesus, it just missed the mark.

    This review was written for Forbidden - eBook.
    I loved the book. it was a great sequil and verry well writen. the auther does a good job of keeping you on the edge of youre seat with lots of action all while keeping a good moral story line. the only thing that struck me as odd is after only anoter 1200 years humanity seems to have forgot the only hope for the world. JESUS CHRIST. his name has not come up once.

    It was an awesome book, just like all of Ted Dekker's other work :)! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through!

    In a world as dark and foreboding as the fear that rules it, one man is entrusted with a centuries-old secret and awakened to a life forbidden for half a millennium. Having impulsively ingested a bit of ancient blood with only a cryptic message as his guide, Rom Sebastian discovers an unknown power that lies dormant in every soul. A throng of emotions - passion, sorrow, hope, love - beautiful and terrible at once, but so vastly far above the simple life of fear known to every inhabitant of the decomposing earth.

    Now on the run from a fearful government who views him as "out of Order," Rom must choose either to live in the familiar clutches of fear or bravely seek out the truth behind these new emotions. To learn their purpose _ and his.

    Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee serve up a heart-racing thriller that'll engage your every emotion and leave you craving more while digesting a hard-hitting truth. The truth that true life is not one that sits back in pillow-fluffed ease while fearing the future. True life is one of seeking purpose beyond ourselves, no matter what the cost, and no matter what the pain along the way. "Because in life we risk death. _ The heart can bleed. And it will." (Forbidden, page 373)

    Once again, Dekker transports us to an alternate reality to help us better understand our own. Once again, he weaves a climactic tale of romance and redemption to remind us of a certain life-giving blood. Much like the power of that life-giving blood, this is a story that cannot possibly be understood through mere description _ it must be experienced.

    Warning:

    While similar in many ways to Dekker's Circle series (and personally, I believe that Thomas Hunter plays an unseen role in this story, *wink, wink*) The Books of Mortals trilogy takes it up a notch on the violence scale. Okay, maybe several notches. (Think head-chopping violence and mega-creepy villains from Green and rack up their frequency a bit.) Also, the spiritual analogies are slightly more vague, at least in this first book of the series. But dig deep and think hard _ the content is rich.

    Just when I thought Ted Dekker could never go beyond his last amazing novel, he does it again! Forbidden is an allegorical page turner that is so crystal clear, you see the parallel images of heaven and earth, played out in this futuristic drama. I was completely enthralled with the story from beginning to end. I have the sequel standing by, so you know where I'm going to be! Get it, read it, you won't be disappointed.
