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!
I want more!
Good stories make you want more at the end. The only bad thing about this book is that all three parts were not released at the same time.
Fabulous Dekker with some nice Lee!!
First thing people need to remember is that this is planned as a multiple part story. Keep that in mind knowing that Dekker is like a snowball rolling down the mountain. It just gets bigger as he goes. Fabulous story line, love the plot, and can't wait for part 2!!!
