Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history. When evil in its purest form is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure - and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red perimeter. 

Her older brother's questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she's seen in a decade set in motion events that will question everything Grace has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides - but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth? 

For the first time, best-selling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.

My First Audio Book - Amazing!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and didn't want it to end! It was very beautifully written and narrated and I left like was a part of the story. I love the way it displays love and how easily we are blinded by some of things we cling to.

Outstanding performance

The story is comparable to what the disciples faced in Acts when confronting the religious leaders with the truth of Jesus Christ. So, in that aspect, I liked it very much. However, Ted gets a little carried away with implying that government and laws only exist out of fear. He implies that those who break laws should not be punished because that isn't "love." As usual, Ted takes his desire to emphasize the importance of love over religion a tad too far. But overall it was a gripping story with some good supernatural elements and a narrator I could listen to forever.

Couldn’t put it down!

Ted Dekker always has a way of illustrating biblical Truths in a way that makes them so real, even with stretching the boundaries of reality. The revelation Grace has at the end illuminated a battle I’ve been personally struggling with the past few years to walk away from the fear that grips and identify fully with the light. Thank you for writing this book, it completely changed my view on fear, guilt, inadequacy, to see it as what binds and not beneficial as it has been taught to me (by the world’s wisdom) even at church!

Tedd + Rachelle = Dynamic Father/Daughter Duo

I knew going in what the underlying story was going to be. It's why I read anything these two, individually, write. I was interested to see how they would work together. I had no doubt it would be awesome, with Tedd's ability to parableize deap truth and Rachelle's ability to enhance the human element in a story, they had to work well together. Well, I was right.

Outstanding!

I've liked Ted Dekker for sometime. I love the way he pushes the envelope. That says more about me than him I suppose. But this novel by he and Rachelle was outstanding. It may be because I was going through a difficult time where fear had attempted to push into my life where it was unwelcomed, and I was having quite a tussle with it. Reading this book at that perfect time was divine intervention.

I don't care if you pick it apart theologically or not. Fear is the antithesis of faith. There is NO, NONE, NADA fear in the love of Christ. The more we wrap our hearts and heads around the depth of Father God's love, the less we will sin and commit wrong acts and that is the way God designed it to be.

To just follow rules is as Jesus said, "whitewashed sepulchres". Dive deep into God's love and dwell there and you will be clean from the inside out.

THIS book reminded me of that! CONGRATULATIONS Ted & Rachelle!!

Worth the Journey

At first I was a bit underwhelmed by it, for it seemed to be in a sense just another story but with a slight Christian religious twist. Like the story itself, it kept me under a hazy sense of uncertainty as to what was actually going on. But then this story became exactly what I was hoping it would be all along, an unabashedly Christian journey in which the protagonist is transformed by the Truth. I am tempted to show some of my friends and family some of the best lines and the best parts, but I know that it would mean very little without the whole journey before it. A great story and a great performance, which ultimately left me quite satisfied.
