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.

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 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.

Sandy Rustin did a great job narrating.

Another classic from Ted Dekker. I really enjoyed listening to Sandy narrate the story.

Definitely not a typical Ted Dekker book

Ted Decker has always been my favorite author but this book was definitely lacking any of his normal style. It was very predictable and didn’t have much of a plot. I was so disappointed since I’d been so excited to see that he had a new release out.

A little slow in the beginning but with a big pay off at the end.

At first, the storyline seemed a little slow. But as I indicated in my title, the pay off at the end it was really worth it. I don’t want to give too much away about it so what I can say is stick with it! You’ll be rewarded in the end. Great message about something that affects everyone. The Dekker’s are really good at writing allegories!

Light Overcomes Darkness

The Dekkers have created a masterful allegory that takes the reader through the shadows that all experience in one form or another. Grace, aptly named, falls victim to her own fears as she travels toward truth.
The reader must endure the darkness with the characters before awareness not only leads to salvation but undoubtedly grips the reader with a revelry of thought-provoking scenarios to deal with. I highly recommend the Dekkers latest book to all both the spiritual and non-spiritual.

We all need to face this...

I admire the authors for tackling the subject but they did do in such a good way...
