Laila DeyoOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Not Dekker's BestFebruary 18, 2012Laila DeyoOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2I have been an avid Ted Dekker reader and novel collector for years and I was very disappointed with this latest novel. I pre-bought it last summer in eager anticipation to complete the three set (Boneman's Daughter and Bride Collector) but I should have waited for the sale price. I just didn't find it as gripping, suspenseful and as well put together as his normal flow of the storyline...BUT that being said I did read the whole thing and I haven't exactly written a book yet, so kudos to him for getting another big novel under his belt and I hope he puts out another "humdinger" that I have come to love and expect!
JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good, but not Dekker's bestJanuary 28, 2012JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4When his mother and sisters are killed during a religious war, Danny Hansen makes it his calling to deal with the injustice in the world. Renee Gilmore is a victim of such injustice. When the love of her life is killed, she vows to avenge his death by going after his killer. These two paths eventually cross, and the twists and turns lead them down a road that could end with the deaths of both.
If you've been to my blog enough, then you should know I am a huge fan of Ted Dekker. I have yet to read a book he's written that I absolutely didn't like. This one, however, is not one of my favorites. Dekker's skill still shines. He knows how to weave a plot, and the characters are very well written. These characters in particular, though I could sympathize with them, were not really likable_ but I believe that may have been intentional. These characters are born out of trauma and pain, which leads them to situations of more trauma and pain. But I think it was the unlikable characters that made me not enjoy the story as much.
As usual, Dekker's overall theme is love. Not mushy, romantic love_ real love. This one also brings in themes of judgement and grace. Overall, it's still a good story, just not up to par with Dekker's previous work, in my opinion. You do have to realize, however, that my love of Dekker's other works puts me into the OMG!-I-love-Ted-Dekker!-fangirl category. So my "negative" review of this book really isn't all that negative, seeing as I hold his previous work in such high regard.

Very different from most Christian writers but compelling.
