About The 49th Mystic
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 only be 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 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.

Everyone Needs to Read This Novel
Review by Nora St. Laurent, Co-Founder of TBCN and Book Fun
Confession Time! My husband told me, he had received an advanced review copy of Ted Dekker’s new book and wanted me to read it before he did. I was apprehensive. 

Let me explain: 

Years ago, my world was turned upside down by a series of books this author wrote that completely changed my view of Christian Fiction. They gave me hope and challenged me. The books were in The Heaven Trilogy series (Heaven’s Wager, Thunder of Heaven, and When Heaven Weeps). Those novels rocked my world. 

I had no idea that the Holy Spirit could touch me to the core of my being like He did when I read these books. Wow, I wasn’t prepared for that. 

I couldn’t stop talking about Ted Dekker and how I instantly connected with his characters and their struggles. They were suspenseful novels I couldn’t put down. But I stopped reading after Ted Dekker's books after the novel Three because it scared me. I don’t do scary and/or gruesome. I’m a chicken little when comes to reading or watching images on T.V. like that. 

My husband kept reading Ted's books and shared the contents with me. Recently I watched Ted share his heart on video on The Forgotten Way. I could see that the Lord had touched his heart and was doing a new work in him. Because of this and my husband's excitement about receiving an advanced copy of his new novel, The 49th Mystic, I thought I'd give it a try.

My Review:

The prologue grabbed my attention and I could totally relate with Rachelle Matthews, a 16-year-old girl blind girl who's been tormented in her sleep by a character she calls Shadow Man since age six. Rachelle says, “The dreams betrayed my deepest fears that nothing would ever change, but still, it was just a dream.” 

She remembers what her father told her: All negative emotions are rooted in fear, most commonly fear of loss. In the end, fear was the only challenge facing all humans.

Identifying with Rachelle, I felt something deeper happening in my spirit. In her dreams, which are as real to her as this world, she soon learns her true identity as the 49th Mystic and that she can only fulfill the prophecy of the 49th Mystic if she overcame her own fears. The only way to do that was to find the five seals of truth. Not only did she have to recognize the truth but she had to know it like a husband and wife know each other. When she experiences this, her life is touched and changed. Powerful!

When I sat down to read this; I was looking for an entertaining story. Oh, wow, I got that and so much more! Rachelle’s fears were mine. I didn’t expect that revelation. I hadn’t planned to be on the journey with Rachelle as she seeks freedom from fear. It was like I was reading my story. I was excited and unnerved as the Holy Spirit revealed things to me through this young girl; like He’d done in previous books I’ve read by this author. 

Through unexpected game-changing events I was glued to the story hook, line, and sinker. I couldn’t put it down. The 49th Mystic turned my world upside down. 

This is a must read novel like no other, full of suspense, love, hope and most of all, truth. It touched my heart and soul and made me think about my identity in a whole new light. 

I HIGHLY recommend this novel for your book club and/or for an amazing, wild ride of a read.
The Best Book of Ted Dekker's Career
Review by Fred St. Laurent, Co-Founder of TBCN and Book Fun
Full disclosure: I've been a Ted Dekker fan for many years.

He has always written in a way that captivates me and draws me into the story, like watching a movie in my mind. Another thing you should know is that I do not write a lot of reviews, but felt I had to share this incredible book with my friends and other readers I know, and don't know.  

In fact, to be totally honest, “incredible” understates how I feel about this particular story.

I haven't been compensated for this review, nor has anyone suggested I write anything except my honest opinion. 

That opinion? Ted Dekker has written the best book of his career. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that he has penned this piece of fiction. It grabbed me up for a wild ride, full of twists, turns, surprises, and thrills! 

The only disappointing thing about this book? It had to end, and I wanted MORE! 

Oh and guess what? There will be a second book coming and I can’t wait!
