mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Wasn't near as riveting as the first bookJune 14, 2014mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I was really excited about this book after reading the first in its series, Forbidden. I thoroughly enjoyed the Circle Trilogy and Forbidden was very similar in its style but very different in it storyline. However, I found myself dragging through Mortal to the point where I am not as excited to finish the series. This book seemed to just drag on and on. Furthermore, the Christ character in the story, Jonathon, was very mystical. If you read this book as a Christian, try not to read too much into Jonathon as a type of Christ. If you try to, you will be very disappointed, maybe even angered. But it is also a work of fiction and is evangelistic in that it seeks to present the gospel in a very cryptic and symbolic way. Hopefully, the reader will be challenged in some way.

This series weaves a spell of 'what if' over the reader.
I can't wait to get the third book in the series to find out just what does happen....
Michelle SuttonArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyed this even more than the first book!January 9, 2013Michelle SuttonArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I loved the first book in this series, but I enjoyed this one even more. There is just something about fiction that parallels the redemptive work of Christ that always inspires me. The world Dekker and Lee created when they wrote this series is compelling and symbolic in a number of ways. I found myself pondering the redemptive meaning of Christ's sacrifice and the use of His blood for our atonement in a deeper way because of this book. I also saw in the story how deception hardens the heart and at the same time how intense and overwhelming our Savior's love is for mankind despite our many flaws.
I found the theology to be pretty deep in this parallel world. This is often true in any of Dekker and Lee's books. They are a perfect match when it comes to creating fiction that speaks to the heart. I found the speech given by Jonathan to be inspiring and insightful. He had a lot to say about life and the difference between being alive - as in body and soul - versus accepting his life's blood and all of the implications that would result from that choice. Several scenes were very emotional and intense. I am eagerly anticipating the third book in the series. The last few pages had some twists that made me glad I wouldn't have to wait long to read Sovereign, which releases in a few months.
