About the Book:

This story is for everyone–but not everyone is for this story.
It is a dangerous tale of times past. A 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.

About the Author:

The son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books, Ted Dekker learned at a very early age the difference between authentic Christianity and so-called religion. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.
After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Religion and Philosophy from Evangel College, Dekker spent time in the corporate world before turning to writing full-time in 1997. He states that each time he writes, he finds his vision of God just a little clearer and his expression of that vision a little more vivid. Dekker’s body of work contains over twenty novels including Thr3e, The Circle Series, and Sinner.
He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife LeeAnn and their four children.

My Review:
Oh. My. Goodness. Wow and wow again! Ted Dekker is splendidly FANTASTIC!!! With Ted Dekker, you just never know what you are going to get. You could get a Christian Sci-Fi style book (for instance-Green, which was not my taste), you could get a fantastic suspense thriller, like The Bride Collector, which,by the way, rocked, or you could get the best historical, fictional love story of all times in his newest release Immanuel’s Veins. When this became available to review, I jumped on it. It sounded beautifully amazing and I am so happy to say that it didn’t disappoint!

The incredibly instense feeling you get when you dive into page one is beyond any description! You instantly fall in love with Alek, Toma and the scenery beyond them. As you read on, and meet Natasha and Lucine, two beautiful twins with completely separate minds, the sparks begin to fly all around the story. The breath taking suspense had me turning the pages of this riveting love story, far into the night and early morning hours. The deepest and most incredible aspects of this sensual story was the power of sacrificial love and the scriptural details woven into the words.

As I was reading Immanuel’s Veins, I was thinking to myself, that I want to feel everything these amazing characters were feeling. By the end of the book, I realized that I could just that and  have that tender sacrificial love and be satisfied for the rest of my life. I could find that kind of love in my Father. That is a wonderful feeling, knowing that you are loved that much by a Father who knows you like know other!

This book is truly unforgettable. If you have never read a Ted Dekker book, then please, start here, right now, with Immanuel’s Veins. You’ll get the intensity of the good verses evil, the thrill of page turning suspense and betrayal, the tenderness of a passionate love like no other, and the fabulous mercy of forgiveness and redemption. If you’ve already read Ted Dekker’s books, then don’t hesitate to grab a copy of this unforgettable, 5 star-more than 5 stars really- book. I was one of the ones who was FOR this story….will you be one of them, too???
