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 that the gateway to that greater reality was and is only the stuff of dreams. They are wrong. 

In the small town of Eden, Utah, a blind girl named Rachelle Matthews is about to find out just how wrong. When a procedure meant to restore Rachelle's sight goes awry, she begins to dream of another world so real that she wonders if Earth might be only a dream experienced when she falls asleep in that reality. Who is a simple blind girl to have such strange and fantastic dreams? 

She's the prophesied one who must find and recover five ancient seals - in both worlds - before powerful enemies destroy her. If Rachelle succeeds in her quest, peace will reign. If she fails, both worlds will forever be locked in darkness. So begins a two-volume saga of high stakes and a mind-bending quest to find an ancient path that will save humanity. The clock is ticking; the end rushes forward. Ready? Set? Dream.

A welcome return

Ted Dekker never disappoints and this is not an exception. The 49th Mystic returns us to the world created in The Circle and within it's pages peals back incredibly deep truths that only can be truly taught through parable. Beautiful.

Amazing Story

This book is very well read and performed. In this book Ted Dekker dives back into the world of the Circle Series and takes you on a wild ride. This story is amazing and having it be an extension of his previous series is exciting and won't let you down. I can't recommend this story enough.

5 Stars.

started good, then turned into a Bible lesson

the story started strong, but soon the whole thing became a Bible study and then finished in nothing more than Bible verses being cited. If I wanted to read the Bible I would. I'm sorry I wasted my time and money on this one

Well Done

This was my first Dekker novel, and, as a fellow author, I must say, "Well Done!" This two book series effectively and creatively expounded upon some of Christianities most difficult concepts. It was fun, well written, suspenseful, and a great listen! Kudos! #Clever #Mindbending #Inspiring #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Mystical

Through this fascinating story, Ted Dekker teaches what it's like to find Christ and journey through life with him. He opens eyes to false teaching and practices in the church, and puts the focus on Christ and nothing else. The reader brings it all to life. I couldn't stop listening.

LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS STORY!

I don’t love every Dekker book. Many of them are to “creepy” for me. However I do love the deep understanding of the Gospel that Ted Dekker has and his ability communicate this Truth to the masses in his fiction and non-fiction books. In many ways, I see him as a modern day C.S. Lewis (my all time favorite Christian author). Ted Dekker has a way of switching on “lightbulb” after “lightbulb” giving new depth and understanding of the Love of Christ even after being a Christian for many many years. This book, along with “The Forgotten Way”, “The Way of Love”, “A.D. 30” and “A.D. 33” are all MUST READS!! (I can’t wait to start “Rise of the Mystics” next!)

This book, “The 49th Mystic” can be enjoyed even if you haven’t read The Circle Series, however, reading this after The Circle Series provides you with a greater understanding of the setting and storyline (and it’s so nice to be reunited with old friends like Thomas Hunter and Other Earth)

Ps. The narrator is one of the best I’ve heard!

A great book, certainly left wanting more

I love Ted Dekker books, this is up there with his best. I prefer the circle trilogy but this was new. Seems to tie in with a few other books...
