Immanuel's Veins

I have always been a big fan of Tedd Dekker.  I've read just about every book he's published, and his imagination and ability to throw in a twist you just don't see coming never ceases to amaze me.  Immanuel's Veins is no different.  This book grabs your attention right off the bat.  The story is set in Moldavia in a time of turmoil.  The main character, Toma, is sent by the Catherine, Empress of Russia, to protect a woman and her twin daughters from any threat that may come their way.  The story unfolds in a way I never could have predicted.  I found myself so heavily involved in the character's lives that I could not put it down.  As a mom of two small kiddos and a middle school teacher to boot, I was shocked that I read it cover to cover in only three days.  By the end of the book I was crying and begging my husband to immediately start reading the story.  My only word of caution:  I would strongly recommend this book to any adult in the world, but it might be a little too much for younger audiences.  If your preteen is interested in reading the book, I'd suggest reading it first, just so you know the story so you can answer any questions they might have afterwards.  It is a story of the struggle between good and evil, told as only Ted Dekker can.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review blogger's program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

P.S.  Thomas Nelson (publisher) has already sent me a free t-shirt as a "thank you" for reviewing the book, and they will send one to ONE lucky commenter! I know there are lots of Ted Dekker fans out there, so make yourself known!!  Good luck!

Hey Anna! I LOVED Immanuel's Veins! And don't worry, you weren't the only one who cried, lol! His stuff is amazing like that. It was neat to see Dekker writing in first person, too. The point-of-view switches were a cool way to tell the story, I thought.

Btw, Love your blog! =)
