It comes off well as a stand alone novel but reading the first two books in the series will provide a better background for the storyline of The Returning. I liked the book as the action was relatively fast paced and there were some actual 'no that did not just happen' scenes that kept the pages turning! A prominent theme of good and evil, i.e., light and darkness, is evident throughout the book and the battle between the two brings a lot of satisfactory and interesting tension to the book. The characters are strong and evocative, calling up a variety of emotions as the reader follows them on the journey on which we all embark...the search for ourselves. There are certainly Christian principles throughout the book (knowing who you are as a child of God and as such we are called to be a light to a dark world, practicing true forgiveness and choosing faith over fear--principles that encourage and guide) and yet one must remember this is a fictional story and not a theology book, not a book on which to base one's spiritual beliefs. All in all, The Returning was a compelling completion to a rather amazing debut series for this author.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.
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.
