New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker teams with Tosca Lee to create this gripping thriller set in a desolate future. Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love. But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed. Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.
Looking forward to the next one...
Good books leave you disappointed at the final page, but not because of the author's conclusion. I am disappointed that there is no more story in which to be immersed. Ted Dekker does the "sequel" really well. I enjoyed Forbidden, but I want more of the story. The characters are developed and I want to see how they will happen the next phase of the saga. The storyline is laid out, but it is not predictable. There are deeper meanings to be discovered behind the boy and the blood... That's all I will say here. Take the time to read this one. You will definitely enjoy it!
It is ok
This book is ok. It is for the mid teenager. It is a decent story and had a great Christian message behind it. I was glad for that. But I would not buy it again. A bit corny but a good story.
Waste of money
My 8 year old could have put together a better story line. Narrator was hard to bear. Save your money!
