Immanuel's Veins

Immanuel's Veins
by Ted Dekker

Set in 1772, two warriors of Catherine the Great - empress of Russia set out on a mission to protect a family of political interest. The Cantemir family, consisting of mother and breathtaking twin daughters are the seemingly easy charges to be protected, yet the warriors soon find themselves in over their heads. Both warriors and daughters find themselves entangled in a web of love, temptation, desire and sacrifice that lead them into darker places than they ever imagined. The results of their choices reveal a reality none could imagine and an ending that leaves readers breathless.

Once again, Ted Dekker has penned another novel that leaves heads spinning. Plot twists and character connections (for avid follower and readers of other Dekker novels) reveal themselves in hidden ways throughout the story. A suspenseful novel with swirls of darkness, romance and the underlying theme of love and sacrifice feed the reader's addiction and leave them begging for more. Thought provoking ideas prompt reflection and deeper consideration of one's own life.

Highly recommended to all readers, this book inspires and challenges faith while entertaining and drawing the reader into a spiral of addiction to the words of Ted Dekker.
