Remko Brant had never been so sure of anything as escaping the Authority City with Carrington Hale. But bravado comes easy when you have nothing to lose. Now a husband, a father, and the tactical leader of the Seers, Remko has never had so much at risk. As he and his team execute increasingly dangerous rescue missions inside the city, they face growing peril from a new enemy.
Recently appointed authority president Damien Gold claims to be guiding a city shaken by rebellion into a peaceful, harmonious future. But appearances can be deceiving. In order to achieve his dangerous ambitions, Gold knows he must do more than catch the rebels - he must destroy the hope their message represents...from the inside out.
With dissension in his own camp - and the CityWatch soldiers closing in - Remko feels control slipping through his fingers. To protect those he loves, he must conquer his fears and defeat Gold...before one of them becomes his undoing.

Hi! I'm a fan of fantasy and sci-fi, and Ted Dekker. Got any great suggestions?
The sequel to The Choosing was as good as the first. Which also means that I also wish that the message, the metaphor of Aaron representing Jesus was a little different. Faith is more than just accepting that you are a child of God and loved no matter what. While this is true, there is more to it. It requires a death, the death of your old self, and repentance, repentance from your sinful nature. You need to get on your knees and beg for forgiveness and accept the gift of Salvation Jesus offers. Then, He will fill you with all the light and love He has to offer. There is no message or repentance in these books. And I wish there was.
I love this book, but it can definitely get depressing at times. Nothing like lows to make the highs feel more powerful though. The only problem I had with the performance was that she sang a hymn in the book to a tune completely different than the actual song. It was slightly painful. Other than that, she was great!
