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.

decker remix

what a terrible book. I finally quit at chapter nine. while I really liked Decker's series black,red, and white as well as paradise Valley ones, this one took skimmings off all his earlier works and threw them together into a ridiculous unengaging novel

Preachy

I thought it would be about cults. But it was an allegory premoting the cult of Christianity. Not even a well written one.

Cheesy.

I'm not sure if this a YA book, that would make sense and possibly make it better. It reminded me of The Celestine prophecy, which I enjoyed as a young adult but couldn't stomach when I tried to reread it as an adult, too cheesy. Also this book lacked the insite and actual good ideas that came from Celestine prophecy. The story line, about a family living in a religious cult, was weak and predictable. The characters shallow and unlikable.
If you cringe at the phrase " I'm the light of the world" then skip this one.

Predictable

I enjoyed this story and it was well read, but from the point where the protagonist first met a Fury I knew how the rest of the story was going to play out. So while there were some interesting twists I found the story predictable overall. Not a “Must read” but the narrator did a good job with the different voices and it was a good listen.

What is the point

This story is an exercise in confusion. The author must have been on some sort of drugs. It bounces all over the place with no sense of direction. She prattles on and on and says nothing. The violence in certain scenes is very disturbing. I started listening in the pool but could not keep up with were she was going. I tryed to finish it at home it was a good sleep aid soothing as she babbled on. I am sorry I bought this abortion and would not recommend this to anyone. I don't usually do reviews just chock these rejects to bad selections but felt that buyers should be warned...

My first book by either author!

I was not overly fond of this book, however, I will say I liked the writing style and it did keep me somewhat interested in listening to the end. I thought the narration was great! I don't think I have heard Sandy Rustin narrate another book, but I think she was a really great narrator and will keep my eyes open for other books she has narrated.

This isn't a book I would listen to again simply because of the religious undertones. I would not have purchased this had I known .

I am certainly willing to try another book by either author, this one just wasn't for me.

Book about good and evil

I enjoyed the book. I felt that it was delivering a message of darkness and light. The narrator Sandy Rustin was very good. I have not listened to books by either author before. I will check them out for future listening.

Outstanding

Thought provoking and disturbing. An excellent listen. I hope to read/hear more from this father/daughter duo. I almost want to have a sequel to see what happens next.
