Ted Dekker has done it once again! This is a tale of epic proportions that shows us that there is more than meets the eye and questions your very sense of what truly is "right" and "wrong"? In this riveting and heart-wrenching (and sometimes quite gut-wrenching as well) story, readers are taught never to judge by what is seen. There is always more to every story. There are not enough words to describe the beauty of the intracies that Ted entwines into this story. It is not only a book, it is a cleverly crafted masterpiece. It is a powerful, magical story hidden behind the guise of a "novel". Read it, and the magic contained in this story will unfold beautifully before your eyes. And until you finish that last page, don't even begin to think that you understand it. Because as Ted has beautifully portrayed, nothing is ever quite like it seems. This book will haunt you long after you finish that last page.
If you want a book that grabs the very desires of your soul. Then you should look for Ted Dekkers new novel The Priest's Graveyard. This book will give you everything you love to watch, read and dream. Its filled with action, romance, suspense, and Blood and not to mention and a bunch of good looking mysterious characters. That will make you fill like your inside the book your holding and make you ask yourself if you are making the right life decisions or if you just as twisted as some of the characters in Ted Dekkers most wonderfully written book The Priest's Graveyard.
This is one of Dekker's best novels, and it is twisted. The villain is the protagonist; the protagonist is the villain. The vigilante is the hero and the killer. It's a fascinating twist from the normal good guy, bad guy motif. It's entirely unique, impossible to put down, specific on all the best details, and comes with the theme that will eat at your head long after you close the back cover.
It will change every expectation you ever had of the word, "love."
Different is one word to describe this book. It is not like most Dekker novels yet, it is. I loved Renee and Lamont_until I learned the truth of Lamont, that is. I loved Danny, the priest. This book is different in the "graphicness" as one of my friends put it, but not in a way that I would stop reading it. Graphic, in the sense, that some of the things that happened were quite shocking. (page 25 mainly). Renee's OCD made me laugh. The love Danny shows, and his "Confession" at the end is_I don't have a word for it. Amazing.
All in all, I loved this book. As a novel I promoted for weeks, and bought 8 copies of,and was majorly excited about I was not let down. I couldn't put it downâ€”unless it was necessary. Amazing read!
