Grams5 Stars Out Of 5MeaningfulMarch 18, 2017GramsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have to admit I read Rachelle Dekkers first book, The Choosing, because I was quite curious about her storytelling in light of her growing up as Ted Dekkers daughter. However, it is her skill as a storyteller that brought me to read The Calling and The Returning. Rachelle definitely does not need to ride on her fathers coattails; she is an author with an eloquent voice of her own.
The Returning is the third novel in Rachelle Dekkers Seer series, and it leaves her reader longing for more, not because the tale is lacking, but because the reader will want to follow the characters and their future generations. The Seer series is a tale of forgetting and remembering, remembering who one is in the Father. It is a tale of letting go, surrendering, in order to gain that which is of the greatest value. It is a tale of great power, power that comes only with being filled with the Spirit of the Father, a Spirit we know comes through the Son. It reminds us that Light can always overcome darkness; it is never too late.
The Returning is best read within the proper sequence of the Seer series. The storys impact would likely be minimized as a stand-alone read. I would encourage you to take this journey. You will find it time well spent.

Cecilia2 Stars Out Of 5Final InstallmentMarch 9, 2017CeciliaQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I have been excited to reach Rochelle Dekkers books, as I have been a long-time fan of her fathers work. With that being said, I am a little upset with this novel. I noticed a few theological errors which is hard for me to look over. As a work of fiction it is a nice read, but there are some issues that a true believer cannot overlook.
Rachelle Dekker has a unique writing style but this just wasn't her best work. I would recommend this for those who have a strong faith base and can distinguish between truth and fiction.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The end is here!February 15, 2017Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It all boils down to the ultimate show-down between good and evil in a Christian Dystopian look into the future with Rachelle Dekker's Seer series in her final novel The Returning. Ancient prophecy has always pointed to a future event that most thought would never happen. A thing written about with no basis for coming true, at least to those living in Authority City. Anyone who opposes those in power or has any idea other that confirming to the well-being of all citizens is simply sent to the re-education center to be administered with a serum known as the Genesis Formula. It makes them comply without thinking for themselves and now they become part of the collective minds of those running the city.
However, there is a band of rebels who have managed to leave the city despite all attempts to capture them. Within this band of fugitives are seven individuals who have been called to fulfill the prophecy of returning those in Authority city back to the way God had intended. Led by a man named Aaron who has shown them the ultimate way of living, no one knows if he is really a man or simply a figment of their over active imaginations. He has always shown them the real purpose of their lives and how those in power in Authority City have forced those in opposition to be re-educated or eliminated. He has uncovered the darkness that has been led to breed uncontrolled by those who have a sinister purpose in mind.
Now Carrington and Remko Brandt have to put their trust in Aaron to lead this team of prodigals on their higher purpose to release those in bondage using their unique specialized gifts granted to them by God to redeem those who are lost in an effort to set them free and restore the city back to the grand vision God has for them. However it is a difficult decision for the Brandt's since their oldest daughter, Elise, was captured during a raid outside the city and it has been years since that day. Not knowing if she is dead or alive, they trust that their youngest daughter Kennedy whose has vowed to find her if she is still alive and bring her back home. Just when this team heads out back to the city to fulfill their prophecy, an army marches against those living in sanctuary waiting for their return to take them captive and force them to submit to the darker authority now controlling Authority City.
I received The Returning by Rachelle Dekker compliments of Tyndale House Publishers and Net Galley. For fans of such series like Divergent and the Hunger Games, you will love this Christian take on a similar story line. Out of the entire series, I have to say my all-time favorite was The Choosing, the first novel. I love the different twist on the value people place on their looks and self esteem and how some were chosen and others who aren't are forced into a life of serving others within the city as outcasts. Dekker does an exceptional job at reminding readers between each novel what had happened prior so it is easy to pick up the action as you immerse yourself into each subsequent novel. This one was a bit predictable in some ways as you could figure out how things would need to be resolved before the series reached its conclusion. I would give this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars in my opinion however.
