The 49th Mystic (Beyond the Circle #1) Reviews
For fans of Ted's will be excited to know he returned to the land of the Circle series. Once again the Horde, the Albinos and others once again struggle over this world and the future world. It was great fun to return to one of my favorite series by Ted and am looking forward to the conclusion in 2018.
Full review to come when my brain has reassembled itself, because MIND. BLOWN.
The 49th Mystic.... Where to begin? Honesty and truth are good spots. It took a week to dive into the book. Excitement, nervousness, and trepidation were just a few feelings that coursed across my mind as I stared at the book. While reading there were moments that appeared to mimic my own life so much that it felt as if a vice had been released from my heart and lungs. That for the first time in some time I could actually get a full lung full. Cliche maybe, but it is my truth. I found some answe ...more
Wow! I don't know how to fully convey the ride that The 49th Mystic is. The story is excellently written, nothing is quite what you expect, and you will enjoy every page! This work will, if you let it, open your eyes to consider and see things as you have never seen them. Ted Dekker's works all have that effect, but this is something unlike any of his previous writings. Every chapter is rich in story, but I walk away looking at my life differently, at my family differently, at my job differently ...more
To anyone who has not yet ventured to read a Ted Dekker novel, this is a deep and wondrous place to begin. For those familiar with Dekker's books, The 49th Mystic is a reunion of well-loved and despised characters alike. It is impossible to skim the pages of this book. You become drawn into the narrative and willingly dwell on the concepts presented long after the last page is turned. I did not simply read this story, I was immersed in the experience of Rachelle and her journey. The truths withi ...more
When I first discovered Ted Dekker several years ago he became my favorite author and The Circle Series became my favorite books. So I was beyond excited to receive an advanced readers copy of The 49th Mystic. It has all of the usual of Dekker’s books twists and turns and darkness. Looking forward to the conclusion in the fall.
I've read quite a few of Ted Dekker's books and am always impressed by his storytelling imagination, as well as the way he interweaves the deepest of Truths. The worlds created in The 49th Mystic are fascinating by themselves, one: a bubble society, cut off from the rest of the world and living by a rather cult-like set of rules; and two: a future Earth full of fantastical elements where modern contraptions are extinct, the sword rules, and humanity is divided by skin and belief. But what always ...more
"Getting lost is part of the journey. When you have lost something, such as your identity, it is still yours, only misplaced and forgotten. Such is the state of all. The question now is, how long do you want to stay lost, my dear little prodigal?"
The 49th Mystic was an interesting read for me. It echoed so much of my own life, in a crazy fantasy story about a blind girl seeking truth and facing down her "Shadow Man"- with the fate of her worlds seemingly in her hands.
"Who was I but a pathetic b ...more
