In 1772, Catherine the Great sends trusted warrior Toma Nicolescu to protect the Cantemir family. Bound by duty, he's forced to keep silent as their daughter, Lucine, steals his heart. But when Vlad van Valerik begins courting her, Toma's senses are on high alert. Is it because of his military training or his own jealousy?

Publisher's Description

This story is for everyone--but not everyone is for this story.

It is a dangerous tale of times past. A love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.

Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover.

With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.

Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter.

But remember, not everyone is for this story.

"A heart-wrenching journey of redemption and hope that left me sobbing, laughing, and clinging to every word."--Donna McChristian, 44, Environmental Chemist

Publisher's Weekly

Dekker jumps on the vampire bloodwagon with an 18th century novel set in the Carpathian Mountains. When two warriors are charged by Catherine the Great of Russia to guard two young women at risk of harm, Toma, the narrator and protagonist, must choose between his duty and honor and the passion he feels for one of the two, the beautiful Lucine. When she falls into the hands of a group of descendants of Nephilim--offspring of the angels who bred with humans, as mentioned in Genesis--Toma must rescue her by means of blood and a love he's never known but must come to understand first himself: the blood of Immanuel's veins. Dekker takes Christian fiction to the edge of darkness in a way that makes redemption and the ancient practices of the church--holy communion, confession of belief in Christ, baptism--bright and believable by contrast. This is classic Dekker clothed in Eastern European garb, passionate and shocking. Pacing is fast as a hummingbird, villains induce cardiac arrhythmias, and the novel must be read with blood pressure pills. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for Immanuel's Veins.
    It very rare that you find a novel about the true romance of life, and Ted Dekker manages to overcome that challange every book he writes. The end of this book left me speechless. For all those who fear that this book is too dark, un-Godly, or just another vampire spin off, it isn't. Read it, all the way, and be plunged into your Beloved's sacred blood. You must survive the night to see the rising sun.

    My lover is mine and I am his;

    This review was written for Immanuel's Veins.
    This is, without a doubt, the most powerful book I have ever read, and easily Ted Dekker's best. This time around, he deals with vampires. No, they do NOT sparkle, and NO, this IS NOT an attempt to appeal to Twilight fans!

    Anyways, this book is brilliantly written and perfectly told, with genius and powerful use of symbolism and a perfect representation of temptation and the dangers of giving in.

    Now, here is a message to a few 1-star reviewers:

    HOW is this book "evil"? HOW is it "too sensual"? Have you seen the trash on TV and in the movies? Have you heard of the sickening smash-hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey? Another thing: what do you think the point of the book is? This is a warning about temptation! If a novel is to convey such a great message, there MUST be darkness and temptation involved! And what better way to do so than using sexual temptation, easily the most deadly of temptation? If you think this is too sensual, then remember: it could have been much, MUUUUUCH worse. There were no sex scenes; it was only implied. Do you want your characters to be perfect? Honestly!

    Anyways, I'm done venting my frustration. And forgive me if I sounded rude; I was only making a point. Always portray evil as evil, or else you accomplish NOTHING.

    To the people who never finished the book because they thought it was too dirty and had no spiritual message, I have this to say: read it from cover to cover. You can't miss the point of the book.

    So, would I recommend this? Without a DOUBT!

    Now, if you are simply not comfortable with reading sensual scenes or vampires, then I can understand you not reading this. But don't make the mistake of calling it "evil". That's a senseless accusation.

    I am a dedicated Ted Dekker fan, from the Circle books through The Bride Collector. This one I didn't care for. I'm not sure if it's the time period or the vampires that turned me off, but I would not recommend this one. Sorry Mr. Dekker, but kudos on The Priest's Graveyard.

    I loved this book. Great Story line. I was afraid to read it since the other reviews said it wasn't as good as his other works. It was different, but still good. I would recommend this book highly.

    Very different from his other books. Dekker went in a direction I didn't expect, with an ending that was equally surprising.
