    The Priest's Graveyard is a tale that is often dark in tone, and somewhat reminiscent of the real-life criminals Bonnie and Clyde in nature.

    Ultimately, though, it is an exploration of judgment and grace.

    It was an enjoyable and thought-inducing read, though it suffered from a somewhat repetitive narrative, and occasional moments when the narrator, Renee, seemed to slip completely out of character. Thankfully, though, both of these distractions were fixed in the sequel to this novel, The Sanctuary.

    This review was written for The Priest's Graveyard.
    The Priest's Graveyard follows two vigilantes of different stripes on a journey from self-justified righteousness to something closer to the truth. It isn't entirely the through though, and that's where my largest concern lays.

    I won't be doing a plot summary, there are plenty of those available here. I will say that it's a surprising read.

    While I found some of the content disturbing and unrealistic, my main concern was the presentation of love and grace WITHOUT the person and work of Jesus. Instead, this love, grace, and forgiveness was offered only by another flawed (and mentally disturbed) human being. Dekker came close to presenting the truth, but yet he fell oh, so very far away from the mark.

    As such, I didn't feel that the trip into darkness was worth the emotional cost. The light offered at books' end was a false one, with no true redemption on offer. Perhaps Dekker was trying to steer mainstream on this one, I was disappointed in any case.

    I received a review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

    The story moved around with a few surprises. That's what good books do.

    I enjoyed this book and it certainly held my attention. I was a little distracted by the "jumping around" but, overall, the book was great

    This review was written for The Priest's Graveyard.
    I 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!
