Publisher's Summary

This story is for everyone - but not everyone is for this story.
This 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.

I absolutely loved this! Dekker's descriptions are so vivid that I could picture the people and places. This story is a great allegory of God's love for us. The story is absorbing and suspenseful. I will listen to it again.

Not one of Ted Dekker's best

I have listened to several of Mr. Dekker's books and this one, while good, is definately not his best. It took over half the book to get to the best part of the story. Seems to be a prequil to the Red, White and Black Trilogy but I am only guessing on that. The best part of the book is the last two hours after all the character development is done. If you like Ted, you will like this book.

great story

although linked to the circle books and the list books, it can be read as a stand alone book. would make a great film...

Dare to love those we consider unreedeemable

A challenging story, when I first saw the title I thought am i ready for my heart to break, i had just finished another of his books and couldn't wait to start another but this one rammed home deeper almost the same message of love for the diseased or the wicked, mediating on this message makes me see others desperation for love and mine maybe the same, and the stories help me to consider deeply there's possibilities, especially how Elyon sees the people he reaching to. Ted's books always hits and tugs my heart, I recommend to my unsaved friends with no reservations because I think he speaks in a way all can grasp. This book I find special in what he is intimating I should love all. I found through his books a wooing of the heart to love greatly.
