    Early 2017, Ted Dekker's editor asked me if I would be interested in reading Ted's new book, The 49th Mystic, and answering some questions. I, of course, said yes. However, my rating is not definitive considering the fact that Ted had just finished writing the book only a few weeks pri...

    Is this a fresh outlook on Christianity or New Age relabeled? I've been a long-time fan of Ted Dekker's work and his imagination, but there is something very wrong with this book and its message. It reminds me of the Celestine Prophecy and its path to enlightenment. Instead of nine ...

    Confession Time! When my husband enthusiastically told me, he had received an advanced review copy of Ted Dekker?s new book and wanted me to read it with him. I was apprehensive. I tried to share his excitement; let me explain. Years ago, my world was turned upside down by a ser...

    For fans of Ted's will be excited to know he returned to the land of the Circle series. Once again the Horde, the Albinos and others once again struggle over this world and the future world. It was great fun to return to one of my favorite series by Ted and am looking forward to the co...

    AAAAHHHHHHHH ok reading this felt like going home and it was amazing but still, gotta say nothing beats the original Circle. WHEN IS BOOK 2 COMING OUT?? [Warning: minor spoilers ahead] Rachelle is a beautiful character who has a lot of struggles and fears but she's so admirable a...

    9780800734930 (ITPE - sold in the UK) 9780800729783 (HB - sold in the USA) A brilliantly told story spanning two worlds. I was intrigued by the blurb for this book ? about a blind girl who lives in two worlds. Or rather, in two time periods. When she sleeps in her home town of...

    This story was bad. Very bad. It?s the circle series and tons of sermons and theology thrown together into a poorly made dish. I started off the book feeling like it was poorly written Circle fanfic. And by the end, this theory still holds up, as storylines from other connected novel...

    This was my first fantasy Ted Dekker book. I?ve read a lot of his thriller/suspense novels and love them! The 49th Mystic is a tale of the girl, Rachelle, and her journey to find the light, the five seals, and figure out her place in life. She?s trapped between two worlds and stri...

    I'm sorry I just could not like this story, especially as it pretty much ended in the middle of the story. Only 3 of 5 seals found...must wait for the sequel...I think not. ...

    I'm kinda speechless here. Gobsmacked, really. This is my first Ted Dekker novel and I'm impressed. What an incredible story! Unlike anything I`ve read before and hard to categorize. Faith driven speculative thriller? Or maybe Dekker has created a new genre altogether. It`s a long boo...

    Ted Dekker is amazing. His books not only entertain and enthrall, they make you think. This first entry in a new trilogy that takes place in the same universe as the Circle books had me gripped the entire time. Can't wait for the sequel! ...

    Wow! I don't know how to fully convey the ride that The 49th Mystic is. The story is excellently written, nothing is quite what you expect, and you will enjoy every page! This work will, if you let it, open your eyes to consider and see things as you have never seen them. Ted Dekker's ...

    Ted Dekker had me sobbing as early as chapter three in The 49th Mystic. I've never cried as hard due to the impact of a man's words on my heart while reading a fiction novel. And all it took was two sentences: "Remember who you are. Return to the truth of your origin and recognize your...

    I really enjoyed Black: The Birth of Evil and it's subsequent books. However, The 49th Mystic just was not my favorite. I found it hard to get through and thought the whole solving of the Seals thing was hard to believe. It was all very steeped in "Christianese" and if someone were to ...

    This book was amazing! Mind blowing! I feel like that is even putting it mildly. It was a pure pleasure to go with Rachelle on her journey. Not only did I follow her, I was on the journey with her! This book is so compelling it was hard to put down. This is Ted Dekker at his absolute b...

    Ready...set...Dream! Some people say that the great mystery of how one person can live in two very different worlds, at the same time, died years ago with Thomas Hunter; while others say that the gateway between the two worlds is merely a dream. They?re both wrong. In the small town ...

    Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this book. Rochelle Matthews is a blind girl in Eden, Utah which is an experimental Utopia of sorts. She has these scary dreams that eventually come to light and she is transferred to Other Earth two thousand years in the future much like Thomas...

    A bit slow to get started but gets very interesting in the middle and becomes much tougher to put down. This is the first of a trilogy I believe and there is a cliffhanger leading into the next book at the end. If you?ve read and enjoyed other books by Ted Dekker you will probably en...

    I believe everything happens for a reason. Things you need to see, hear, read or learn at a time in your life that holds meaning. This has since been the case with all of the books I've read by Ted Dekker over the past few years. Always a lesson, something I needed to read/hear at just...

    I?ve been a fan of Ted Dekker since I was a 7th grader. A 12 year old kid who couldn?t write proper sentences, yet loved to read. I fell in love with Ted?s books and fell in love with writing. 49th Mystic had a lot to love up to. Red taught me who Jesus was; I was a Christian, bu...

    If it's only fiction, how does The 49th Mystic manage to seem deeper and truer than even the most inspired teaching? This novel may be a fantasy thriller, but it promises to reveal the most foundational yet elusive Truths as it compels the reader to travel between two fantastic worlds....

    4.5 Stars!!! After my brother introduced me to Black: The Birth of Evil the first book in the Circle series, I fell in love with anything that has to do with the Books of History. When I first heard that Dekker was going to write yet another book taking place in the same world, I...

    I received an ARC of this book from Interviews and Reviews and the publisher, Revel. What follows is an honest review. The 49th Mystic is some heavy reading. The physical copy of the book that I received is 400 pages long. So in the physical sense it is a heavy book. In the story ...

    I've read quite a few of Ted Dekker's books and am always impressed by his storytelling imagination, as well as the way he interweaves the deepest of Truths. The worlds created in The 49th Mystic are fascinating by themselves, one: a bubble society, cut off from the rest of the world a...

    Sometimes in life, you read a book that speaks to you in an unexpected way. It speaks truth and life and peace. The 49th Mystic was this book for me for this exact time in my life. In the small town of Eden, Utah, a blind girl named Rachelle Matthews begins to dream of another worl...

    This story was bad. Very bad. It?s the circle series and tons of sermons and theology thrown together into a poorly made dish. I started off the book feeling like it was poorly written Circle fanfic. And by the end, this theory still holds up, as storylines from other connected novel...

    This was my first fantasy Ted Dekker book. I?ve read a lot of his thriller/suspense novels and love them! The 49th Mystic is a tale of the girl, Rachelle, and her journey to find the light, the five seals, and figure out her place in life. She?s trapped between two worlds and stri...

    I'm sorry I just could not like this story, especially as it pretty much ended in the middle of the story. Only 3 of 5 seals found...must wait for the sequel...I think not. ...

    I'm kinda speechless here. Gobsmacked, really. This is my first Ted Dekker novel and I'm impressed. What an incredible story! Unlike anything I`ve read before and hard to categorize. Faith driven speculative thriller? Or maybe Dekker has created a new genre altogether. It`s a long boo...

    Ted Dekker is amazing. His books not only entertain and enthrall, they make you think. This first entry in a new trilogy that takes place in the same universe as the Circle books had me gripped the entire time. Can't wait for the sequel! ...

    Early 2017, Ted Dekker's editor asked me if I would be interested in reading Ted's new book, The 49th Mystic, and answering some questions. I, of course, said yes. However, my rating is not definitive considering the fact that Ted had just finished writing the book only a few weeks pri...

    Is this a fresh outlook on Christianity or New Age relabeled? I've been a long-time fan of Ted Dekker's work and his imagination, but there is something very wrong with this book and its message. It reminds me of the Celestine Prophecy and its path to enlightenment. Instead of nine ...

    Wow! I don't know how to fully convey the ride that The 49th Mystic is. The story is excellently written, nothing is quite what you expect, and you will enjoy every page! This work will, if you let it, open your eyes to consider and see things as you have never seen them. Ted Dekker's ...

    Ted Dekker had me sobbing as early as chapter three in The 49th Mystic. I've never cried as hard due to the impact of a man's words on my heart while reading a fiction novel. And all it took was two sentences: "Remember who you are. Return to the truth of your origin and recognize your...

    I really enjoyed Black: The Birth of Evil and it's subsequent books. However, The 49th Mystic just was not my favorite. I found it hard to get through and thought the whole solving of the Seals thing was hard to believe. It was all very steeped in "Christianese" and if someone were to ...

    This book was amazing! Mind blowing! I feel like that is even putting it mildly. It was a pure pleasure to go with Rachelle on her journey. Not only did I follow her, I was on the journey with her! This book is so compelling it was hard to put down. This is Ted Dekker at his absolute b...

    If it's only fiction, how does The 49th Mystic manage to seem deeper and truer than even the most inspired teaching? This novel may be a fantasy thriller, but it promises to reveal the most foundational yet elusive Truths as it compels the reader to travel between two fantastic worlds....

    4.5 Stars!!! After my brother introduced me to Black: The Birth of Evil the first book in the Circle series, I fell in love with anything that has to do with the Books of History. When I first heard that Dekker was going to write yet another book taking place in the same world, I...

    I received an ARC of this book from Interviews and Reviews and the publisher, Revel. What follows is an honest review. The 49th Mystic is some heavy reading. The physical copy of the book that I received is 400 pages long. So in the physical sense it is a heavy book. In the story ...

    I've read quite a few of Ted Dekker's books and am always impressed by his storytelling imagination, as well as the way he interweaves the deepest of Truths. The worlds created in The 49th Mystic are fascinating by themselves, one: a bubble society, cut off from the rest of the world a...

    Is this a fresh outlook on Christianity or New Age relabeled? I've been a long-time fan of Ted Dekker's work and his imagination, but there is something very wrong with this book and its message. It reminds me of the Celestine Prophecy and its path to enlightenment. Instead of nine ...

    ?The 49th Mystic? by Ted Dekker is a compelling novel that combines science fiction and fantasy while orchestrating the allegorical tale of a heroine?s journey. This is my first novel by Dekker and I plan on following up with the second novel that will be released October 2018. T...

    Confession Time! When my husband enthusiastically told me, he had received an advanced review copy of Ted Dekker?s new book and wanted me to read it with him. I was apprehensive. I tried to share his excitement; let me explain. Years ago, my world was turned upside down by a ser...

    For fans of Ted's will be excited to know he returned to the land of the Circle series. Once again the Horde, the Albinos and others once again struggle over this world and the future world. It was great fun to return to one of my favorite series by Ted and am looking forward to the co...

    This story was bad. Very bad. It?s the circle series and tons of sermons and theology thrown together into a poorly made dish. I started off the book feeling like it was poorly written Circle fanfic. And by the end, this theory still holds up, as storylines from other connected novel...

    This was my first fantasy Ted Dekker book. I?ve read a lot of his thriller/suspense novels and love them! The 49th Mystic is a tale of the girl, Rachelle, and her journey to find the light, the five seals, and figure out her place in life. She?s trapped between two worlds and stri...

    I'm sorry I just could not like this story, especially as it pretty much ended in the middle of the story. Only 3 of 5 seals found...must wait for the sequel...I think not. ...

    I'm kinda speechless here. Gobsmacked, really. This is my first Ted Dekker novel and I'm impressed. What an incredible story! Unlike anything I`ve read before and hard to categorize. Faith driven speculative thriller? Or maybe Dekker has created a new genre altogether. It`s a long boo...

    Ted Dekker is amazing. His books not only entertain and enthrall, they make you think. This first entry in a new trilogy that takes place in the same universe as the Circle books had me gripped the entire time. Can't wait for the sequel! ...

    Wow! I don't know how to fully convey the ride that The 49th Mystic is. The story is excellently written, nothing is quite what you expect, and you will enjoy every page! This work will, if you let it, open your eyes to consider and see things as you have never seen them. Ted Dekker's ...

    Ted Dekker had me sobbing as early as chapter three in The 49th Mystic. I've never cried as hard due to the impact of a man's words on my heart while reading a fiction novel. And all it took was two sentences: "Remember who you are. Return to the truth of your origin and recognize your...

    I really enjoyed Black: The Birth of Evil and it's subsequent books. However, The 49th Mystic just was not my favorite. I found it hard to get through and thought the whole solving of the Seals thing was hard to believe. It was all very steeped in "Christianese" and if someone were to ...

    This book was amazing! Mind blowing! I feel like that is even putting it mildly. It was a pure pleasure to go with Rachelle on her journey. Not only did I follow her, I was on the journey with her! This book is so compelling it was hard to put down. This is Ted Dekker at his absolute b...

    Ready...set...Dream! Some people say that the great mystery of how one person can live in two very different worlds, at the same time, died years ago with Thomas Hunter; while others say that the gateway between the two worlds is merely a dream. They?re both wrong. In the small town ...

    Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this book. Rochelle Matthews is a blind girl in Eden, Utah which is an experimental Utopia of sorts. She has these scary dreams that eventually come to light and she is transferred to Other Earth two thousand years in the future much like Thomas...

    A bit slow to get started but gets very interesting in the middle and becomes much tougher to put down. This is the first of a trilogy I believe and there is a cliffhanger leading into the next book at the end. If you?ve read and enjoyed other books by Ted Dekker you will probably en...

    I believe everything happens for a reason. Things you need to see, hear, read or learn at a time in your life that holds meaning. This has since been the case with all of the books I've read by Ted Dekker over the past few years. Always a lesson, something I needed to read/hear at just...

    I?ve been a fan of Ted Dekker since I was a 7th grader. A 12 year old kid who couldn?t write proper sentences, yet loved to read. I fell in love with Ted?s books and fell in love with writing. 49th Mystic had a lot to love up to. Red taught me who Jesus was; I was a Christian, bu...

    If it's only fiction, how does The 49th Mystic manage to seem deeper and truer than even the most inspired teaching? This novel may be a fantasy thriller, but it promises to reveal the most foundational yet elusive Truths as it compels the reader to travel between two fantastic worlds....

    When I first discovered Ted Dekker several years ago he became my favorite author and The Circle Series became my favorite books. So I was beyond excited to receive an advanced readers copy of The 49th Mystic. It has all of the usual of Dekker?s books twists and turns and darkness. L...

    4.5 Stars!!! After my brother introduced me to Black: The Birth of Evil the first book in the Circle series, I fell in love with anything that has to do with the Books of History. When I first heard that Dekker was going to write yet another book taking place in the same world, I...

    I received an ARC of this book from Interviews and Reviews and the publisher, Revel. What follows is an honest review. The 49th Mystic is some heavy reading. The physical copy of the book that I received is 400 pages long. So in the physical sense it is a heavy book. In the story ...

    I've read quite a few of Ted Dekker's books and am always impressed by his storytelling imagination, as well as the way he interweaves the deepest of Truths. The worlds created in The 49th Mystic are fascinating by themselves, one: a bubble society, cut off from the rest of the world a...

    Sometimes in life, you read a book that speaks to you in an unexpected way. It speaks truth and life and peace. The 49th Mystic was this book for me for this exact time in my life. In the small town of Eden, Utah, a blind girl named Rachelle Matthews begins to dream of another worl...

    I started with trepidation having been such a big fan of The Circle Trilogy but what i found was a story to stand on its own. Weaving between two realities kept the story changing and surprising as you began to try and unravel the mystery of the 49th Mystic and figure out the five anci...

    Confession Time! When my husband enthusiastically told me, he had received an advanced review copy of Ted Dekker?s new book and wanted me to read it with him. I was apprehensive. I tried to share his excitement; let me explain. Years ago, my world was turned upside down by a ser...

    For fans of Ted's will be excited to know he returned to the land of the Circle series. Once again the Horde, the Albinos and others once again struggle over this world and the future world. It was great fun to return to one of my favorite series by Ted and am looking forward to the co...

    AAAAHHHHHHHH ok reading this felt like going home and it was amazing but still, gotta say nothing beats the original Circle. WHEN IS BOOK 2 COMING OUT?? [Warning: minor spoilers ahead] Rachelle is a beautiful character who has a lot of struggles and fears but she's so admirable a...

    This story was bad. Very bad. It?s the circle series and tons of sermons and theology thrown together into a poorly made dish. I started off the book feeling like it was poorly written Circle fanfic. And by the end, this theory still holds up, as storylines from other connected novel...

    This was my first fantasy Ted Dekker book. I?ve read a lot of his thriller/suspense novels and love them! The 49th Mystic is a tale of the girl, Rachelle, and her journey to find the light, the five seals, and figure out her place in life. She?s trapped between two worlds and stri...

    I'm sorry I just could not like this story, especially as it pretty much ended in the middle of the story. Only 3 of 5 seals found...must wait for the sequel...I think not. ...

    I'm kinda speechless here. Gobsmacked, really. This is my first Ted Dekker novel and I'm impressed. What an incredible story! Unlike anything I`ve read before and hard to categorize. Faith driven speculative thriller? Or maybe Dekker has created a new genre altogether. It`s a long boo...

    Ted Dekker is amazing. His books not only entertain and enthrall, they make you think. This first entry in a new trilogy that takes place in the same universe as the Circle books had me gripped the entire time. Can't wait for the sequel! ...

    Wow! I don't know how to fully convey the ride that The 49th Mystic is. The story is excellently written, nothing is quite what you expect, and you will enjoy every page! This work will, if you let it, open your eyes to consider and see things as you have never seen them. Ted Dekker's ...

    Ted Dekker had me sobbing as early as chapter three in The 49th Mystic. I've never cried as hard due to the impact of a man's words on my heart while reading a fiction novel. And all it took was two sentences: "Remember who you are. Return to the truth of your origin and recognize your...

    I really enjoyed Black: The Birth of Evil and it's subsequent books. However, The 49th Mystic just was not my favorite. I found it hard to get through and thought the whole solving of the Seals thing was hard to believe. It was all very steeped in "Christianese" and if someone were to ...

    This book was amazing! Mind blowing! I feel like that is even putting it mildly. It was a pure pleasure to go with Rachelle on her journey. Not only did I follow her, I was on the journey with her! This book is so compelling it was hard to put down. This is Ted Dekker at his absolute b...

    Ready...set...Dream! Some people say that the great mystery of how one person can live in two very different worlds, at the same time, died years ago with Thomas Hunter; while others say that the gateway between the two worlds is merely a dream. They?re both wrong. In the small town ...

    Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this book. Rochelle Matthews is a blind girl in Eden, Utah which is an experimental Utopia of sorts. She has these scary dreams that eventually come to light and she is transferred to Other Earth two thousand years in the future much like Thomas...

    A bit slow to get started but gets very interesting in the middle and becomes much tougher to put down. This is the first of a trilogy I believe and there is a cliffhanger leading into the next book at the end. If you?ve read and enjoyed other books by Ted Dekker you will probably en...

    I believe everything happens for a reason. Things you need to see, hear, read or learn at a time in your life that holds meaning. This has since been the case with all of the books I've read by Ted Dekker over the past few years. Always a lesson, something I needed to read/hear at just...

    I?ve been a fan of Ted Dekker since I was a 7th grader. A 12 year old kid who couldn?t write proper sentences, yet loved to read. I fell in love with Ted?s books and fell in love with writing. 49th Mystic had a lot to love up to. Red taught me who Jesus was; I was a Christian, bu...

    If it's only fiction, how does The 49th Mystic manage to seem deeper and truer than even the most inspired teaching? This novel may be a fantasy thriller, but it promises to reveal the most foundational yet elusive Truths as it compels the reader to travel between two fantastic worlds....

    When I first discovered Ted Dekker several years ago he became my favorite author and The Circle Series became my favorite books. So I was beyond excited to receive an advanced readers copy of The 49th Mystic. It has all of the usual of Dekker?s books twists and turns and darkness. L...

    4.5 Stars!!! After my brother introduced me to Black: The Birth of Evil the first book in the Circle series, I fell in love with anything that has to do with the Books of History. When I first heard that Dekker was going to write yet another book taking place in the same world, I...

    I received an ARC of this book from Interviews and Reviews and the publisher, Revel. What follows is an honest review. The 49th Mystic is some heavy reading. The physical copy of the book that I received is 400 pages long. So in the physical sense it is a heavy book. In the story ...
