Immanuel’s Veins by Ted Dekker w/ a fun giveaway
THIS STORY IS FOR EVERYONE
BUT NOT EVERYONE IS FOR THIS STORY
It is a dangerous tale of times past. A torrid love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.
Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover.
With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.
Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.
Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter.
But remember, not everyone is for this story.
I have enjoyed Ted Dekker off and on through the years. Some I have really enjoyed and others I have been left scratching my head (don’t even get me started on House). If you watched the book trailer and got a little sense of “Twilight”, that would be accurate. And before those of you who did not enjoy the Twilight series turn away from this review I am going to ask you to give me a minute…
Yes, while there is a “Twilightish” vibe in the background theme of this book, this book goes beyond to a darker book then Meyer’s wrote which is truly Ted Dekker’s signature style. The character’s are on fire with life breathed into them by non other than the master of Christian Suspense writing, Ted Dekker. The book will cause you to really think about sacrificial love and that is really what this book is about.
I am still processing all I read and I can safely say that this is one of the best books I have read by Ted Dekker in quite a while. Ted tapped into a vein (yes, pun intended) that I think will entice readers of many genres to this book.
