Publisher's Summary

Some say the great mystery of how one can live in two worlds at once died with Thomas Hunter many years ago. Still others say the gateway to that greater reality was and is only the stuff of dreams. 

They are all wrong. Rachelle Matthews, who grew up in the small town of Eden, Utah, discovered just how wrong when she dreamed and awoke in another world. There she learned she was the 49th Mystic, the prophesied one, tasked with finding five ancient seals before powerful enemies destroy her. 

If Rachelle succeeds in her quest, peace will reign. If she fails, the world will forever be locked in darkness. 

In The 49th Mystic, Rachelle found the first three of those five seals through great peril and mind-altering adventure. But two seals remain hidden, and the fate of both worlds hangs in their balance. 

As Rachelle Matthews sits deep in a dungeon, Vlad Smith is just getting started. Thomas Hunter's world is about to be turned inside out. The mystics say there is no defense against the Fifth Seal - but finding it will cost Rachelle everything. 

So begins the final volume of high stakes in one girl's quest to find an ancient path that will save humanity. The clock is ticking; the end rushes forward. Ready? Set? Dream.

Intense and illuminating

At the end of The 49th Mystic, Rachelle has only 2 seals left to find and was well on her way. Her plight seemed simple, until you finish chapter 1 of Rise of the Mystics. Ted Dekker has a way for pulling the reader in and increasing the stakes. What we know from book one is just the tip of the iceberg. Anyone who wants to understand the teachings of Christ should read this book. Ted Dekker takes something that seems complicated and expresses in a story that opens the eyes and heart to a knew understanding. The Rise of the Mystics does that.

Well Done Part II

About 1/2 way through the second book in this series, I got a chill as I realized what Dekker was up to. Very ambitious and well done. This two book series effectively and creatively expounded upon some of Christianity's most difficult concepts. It was fun, well written, suspenseful, and a great listen! I was impressed. #Clever #Mindbending #Inspiring #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Ted Dekker does it again!

I absolutely love this along with 49 mystic! Journey that went through while reading this book was so eye-opening and incredible. I have always love Ted Dekker’s writings; however, this has been my favorite book by far. This book really made me challenge my viewpoints and yet stay true to what I have always believed. Thank you Ted, for this journey an experience!

Required reading for humans.

I feel like a creature in conflict as I write this review — after all, a central theme in the story is letting go of judgment and surrendering to a love that holds no record of wrong... yet all reviews require judgment at some level, do they not?

There is so much here that I need to read again. Seldom in a work of fiction have I had to back up time and time again as I have here to let a concept or a conversation sit with me, sink in, and do its work in my soul.

This book is a delightful exegesis (in the shape of an allegory) about the kingdom of heaven, the immediacy and availability of it, our pursuit of it, and our relationship to its King.

People say “don’t blink or you’ll miss it!” I think Dekker has done a wonderful job of saying, “We were all born blind to it; Open your eyes and see!” Bravo.

Amazing content!!!

I love the spiritual depth of the story, and the insights into faith and unconditional love. I also really appreciate the closing remarks, in how scripture is described with new clarity. An amazing series.

Dekker does not disappoint

Yet another majestic, thought provoking, intelligent, well written and well thought out book with a satisfying conclusion. The book takes you from the depths of despair to the heights of heaven. Ted Dekker is a genius and the kind of writer the world needs today.

Ted Dekker does it again with Rise of the Mysticd

Ted brilliantly concludes the Beyond the Circle series in his own powerful way. A must read for Dekker fans.

The worst thing about a Ted Dekker book is homing to the end and having to wait for the next one!

I do t think Ted has ever written a bad book but these 2 - 49th Mystic & this one - take the lead as far as the best of Ted’s books go.

Loved it!
