Only 49 truly alive followers remain loyal to Rom. This meager band must fight for survival as The Order is focused on their total annihilation. Misunderstood and despised, their journey will be one of desperation against a new, more intensely evil Order. As the hand of this evil is raised to strike and destroy them they must rely on their faith in the abiding power of love to overcome all and lead them to sovereignty.
SOVEREIGN wonderfully continues the new testament allegory that was introduced in FORBIDDEN and continued in MORTAL.
"...mammoth twists and head-pounding turns that will have readers and book clubs debating the roles of emotion and logic that drive human existence."
--- Publishers Weekly
Dekker and Lee have created an intriguing future world...poised on the edge of vast upheaval. [They] draw readers into it and make them eager to read more..."
"With great plot twists, compelling writing, and unanswered questions, this is a must-read for Dekker fans..."
--- Library Journal
"FORBIDDEN: The Books of Mortals rocks with the same level of intensity and brilliance as Dekker's Circle Series. Riveting, resounding, and a magnificent blend of Dekker's and Lee's styles. I devoured FORBIDDEN."
--- James L. Rubart, bestselling author

Pitted against each other, a Sovereign alchemist creates a virus that will wipe out the Immortals and Dark Bloods. Two Sovereign leaders set out to warn the heads of the other groups of their demise, if they do not become Sovereign themselves. Dekker and Lee take you at a breakneck pace into a complex and intelligent allegory of life and death, love and hate, and the cost of both. While the plot is complicated and twisted, you never lose your way and question the validity of a character. They weave a story that is intellectually challenging, while not losing spiritual depth. Remarkable and fascinating, with those moments of "gasp."

Christianfictionaddiction4 Stars Out Of 5Provides a rich adventureJune 22, 2013ChristianfictionaddictionQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee have again combined their tremendous writing talent in "Sovereign", the third installment of "The Book of Mortals" series. As with the first two books, the scenes are vividly drawn, the writing is crisp, and the words flow smoothly, sweeping you up into the power of the story. From the start, the scenes explode with action, and I was immediately gripped by the opening chapters as good clashes with evil. My favourite character in this story is easily that of Jordin, who wrestles with doubt and whether she's making the right choices, but ultimately has a powerful encounter that opens her eyes to truth and to love. All of the characters are very well-developed, and I enjoyed the twists that are written into the story, where nothing is black and white, and even the villains invoke sympathy. The authors have created a book and an entire series that has so many parallels to the Christian walk and what Jesus accomplished through his death and through the abundant life he offers us. As such, the book can be read purely for entertainment value, or you can ponder the deeper truths woven into the story. I did find that the book dragged a bit for me in the middle, but by the end I was glued to the pages to see how everything would resolve. I closed the pages thinking about the strength of my own faith in Jesus and how fully I've allowed his truth to bring freedom into every part of my life. Any book that has me mulling over issues of faith while providing an absorbing ride is definitely worth reading!
Sovereign provides a rich adventure, and readers who have enjoyed the first two books in the series are certain to be pleased with this addition. I strongly recommend this book and award it 4 out of 5 stars.
