About The 49th Mystic
A Whole New Story in the Best Selling Circle Series Universe
Ready? Set? Dream.
Welcome to a wild new journey of discovery set in the worlds of The Circle (Black, Red, White, Green). It doesn't require reading those books, but will add layers of meaning for those who have. It all begins with The 49th Mystic, a wild quest story that will draw you in and refuse to let you go. 

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 two-volume 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. 
After working for 3 years on a story unlike any I’ve written, it's finally on shelves everywhere. The novel is called The 49th Mystic: Beyond the Circle—a whole new stand-alone story set in the worlds of Black, Red and White. (Reading Black, Red and White isn’t required.) If this novel doesn’t blow your mind, I don’t know what will. But don’t take my word for it. 

The publisher gave advance copies to a few hundred people and, based on their reactions (see below), this may be the best thing I’ve written in my life. Their reactions overwhelm me.

An exhilarating read! It had been several years since completing the original Circle Series, so I was concerned that I may need to go back and re-read it, in order to understand what's happening in the world of The 49th Mystic. Not to worry! Here is an epic read for both new and seasoned Dekker fans! – David Wagoner

This book is life changing. Everyone who reads it will be wishing for more. The only disappointing thing about this book is that it has an end. I could have read more! I can't wait to read the next one! -Dellana Beesinger

It's what I have come to love most about Ted Dekker's books. With that being said, 'The 49th Mystic' has definitely topped the charts. I was extremely sad when I read the last page - I didn't want the book to end. The journey continues!! I can't wait. -Jenine Kopenski

Every time you think you understand... Everything changes. The characters are real and ever evolving, the action never really slows and the story itself blows your mind. I couldn't put it down. I really don't think I can say more without spoilers... Just read it! -Kat Meredith

I will return to this book time and again when I forget who I am, and when I forget who God is. –Danika Millay

Dekker has done it again! He has woven a majestic tale that will have you questioning what is reality and what is a dream. This is a journey that is so much more than just a story, but one that makes you begin to look inward and want to be awoken right along side the characters you quickly come to adore. -Justin Miller

The 49th Mystic was exciting, nerve-wracking, and inspirational, keeping me on the edge of my seat to find out what would happen next while opening my eyes to new ideas.

- Laurel Williston

This book was more than just a story, but a life changer! -Rachel Lacey

The 49th Mystic is full of adventure, suspense, intrigue and above all filled with faith, hope and love. Dekker is a master story teller and this book is storytelling par excellence. I have read most of his books and this is positively my favorite. –Jim Russell

Reading The 49th Mystic has turned the way I look at myself, my faith, and the world upside down. – Amanda Savin

I thought I knew which Ted Dekker book was my favorite. I was wrong. This has become my favorite book written by Ted by far. – Lynn Merrell

The 49th Mystic is Ted Dekker at his best. Warning…once you pick the book up, you won't be able to put it down. Two worlds intricately connected; blind to the power and truth that lies within. Dekker is a master story teller who has the uncanny ability to draw the reader into the middle of the story; it isn't Ted's story, it's our story. 
 – Jesse Coale

Ted Dekker's return to the world of the Circle does not disappoint. As those familiar with Ted Dekker's writing already know well, very little--if anything--goes the way you think it will, so leave the old worn-out tropes at the door. –Reid Cardwell

Wow! Just wow! I’ve been a fan of Ted Dekker since the beginning and he’s out done himself with this one. The 49th Mystic is a thrilling ride from the first page to the last. –Shalina Grorich

I could not put this book down. I devoured it in less than 24 hours and mourned the moment I read the last page. 
– Cheryl Newton 

Life changing! You owe it to yourself to take this ride. Ted Dekker has this unique ability to whisk you out of a fast paced action adventure drama into a full blown personal spiritual experience. – Amy Johnstone

The 49th Mystic was one of the most unique books I have ever read. When I began reading it, I was really excited because it sounded like a fast-paced thriller of sorts. Not only was it that, but this book has a way of teaching you about grace and love in a way that I had never heard before. – Julie Archer

It is hard to express in words how much this book impacted me. I have read the majority of Ted Dekker's books and this one is definitely one of his best. – Amanda Scheidler

Ted Dekker has knocked it out of the park with The 49th Mystic. –Keli Teeter 

I felt like I was lost in the magnificent worlds Dekker created, yet at the same time I was found. In this story I wept, laughed, wondered, and "saw." Be prepared to see yourself and the world around you differently after reading this masterpiece. It is absolutely mystical. – Haley Gurr

One of the best books I've ever read. His books are all fantastic, but I think this is the best one he has written.
 – Jill Macdonald  

Mind blown! I think this is the best Ted Dekker book to date and I read all of Ted Dekker's fiction. – Emily Krebs

I absolutely loved this story! The 49th Mystic is a thrilling tale filled with suspense, adventure, imagination, and love. – Amy Miller 

Ted Dekker has once again succeeded in creating a story that makes you say, "Just one more chapter," until before you know it, it's 3 in the morning and you have to be up in 4 hours. – Kelly McFarlane 

I have loved every single book that Ted Dekker has written, but none have changed the way that I view the Father or how I see myself, as His child, than his newest book, The 49th Mystic. – Lisa Starr 

Not only is the book good as a stand alone, it brings many other Dekker books together in a gifted way. It is a compelling story that will prompt you to continue processing the book into your own thoughts and actions begging you to ask the question... am I acting out of fear or love? Read it NOW and get ready for a life changing journey! 
 -Teri Lyn Corbett

In typical Ted Dekker style, The 49th Mystic gripped my heart and imagination immediately and would not let go! The way in which he expanded the Circle Universe was amazing! –Eureka Jones

This could be my favorite Dekker book! What a suspenseful, thought provoking journey. –Pam Gross

If you're new to Dekker, hang on tight, you're in for one heck of a ride. – Jay Lamborn

The 49th Mystic was amazing. It’s probably one of my favorite Ted Dekker books. It made me laugh and cry and cheer. I didn’t want the book to end! It was so much more than just a story to me. - Tanja Prosock 

I've read a lot of Ted's books and always enjoy the story, but this one is different. It's truth wrapped in a story. I'm ready for Rise of the Mystics now, please! – Sandy Schadler Kasewurm

The 49th Mystic is more than just a book, it's a journey. If you want to be reminded that your life matters, that you are seen and wholly loved, read this book. You won't regret it. – Jewell Davis

Some truths can only be communicated through story and experience. Dekker is at the top of his creative writing craft in writing this book. It is a page burner that urges you forward. Get ready for an incredible ride as you dive into the world(s) of the 49th Mystic!! – Gavin Quella

I've never been a true fan of Sci-Fi or alternate universe as a settings, but the way Ted Dekker uses this in The 49th Mystic is less about where it all takes place and more about Rachelle's journey. Even if you have never read the Circle series, the way Dekker re-introduces them into this book is seamless. The 49th Mystic is another work of art! – Lesa Smith

Whether you have never opened one of Dekker's creations before, or if you know the circle series well, this is an amazing work of art that you will not be able to put down for long. – John Taylor

The 49th Mystic was completely engaging from the first chapter. I’ve been a fan of Ted Dekker from the first book I read, but this is my new favorite. I can’t wait for the sequel! – Kaley Poet

The Circle Expands! And we thought it was over! Dekker goes from mind-bending to mind-blowing. 
– Joan Thomas-Riley

The 49th Mystic encompasses so much more than just a great read! It's a real page turner. Another Ted Dekker masterpiece of imagination, intrigue, and hidden wisdom. A must read for everyone! – Jan Pentlin

Wow, wow and wow! Awesome, amazing and enlightening. Everyone should read The 49th Mystic. Once again Ted Dekker hits it out of the park. - Tammy Koremenos

The 49th Mystic is one of those books that makes you wish you didn’t have to get up in the morning and go to work so you could stay up all night and read. – Carolina Lindholm 

He’s done it again! Ted has blown my mind and challenged me to see life through a new perspective! 
– MaryAnne Haskell

Of the 21 Ted Dekker books I’ve read so far this may be my favorite yet! This is a MUST HAVE if you are already part of the Circle and it is a FANTASTIC entry point if you have yet to experience Ted Dekker’s universe. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! – Derek Cronin

I cannot impress upon you with words, how greatly this exciting story impacted me on a personal level. Truly a must read. – Craig Sjoerdsma

What an exhilarating ride through this book. Difficult to put down. I am sure I will go back and re-read it again and again as it was such a fascinating story. – Kevin Figiel

The 49th Mystic is a life-altering journey that moves Beyond the Circle and solidifies a journey found both within the book and in my own life. – Caleb Boone

I have read almost all of Ted Dekker’s books, and this is by far one of my top must reads. So many times throughout the chapters of the 49th, I would have to stop and ponder the revelation I had just been shown. 
– Anthony Summers

This book is not just a great thriller, it’s a life changing story. What a blessing! – Pam Malina

I want to say that Ted Dekker has done it again, but truth be told, The 49th Mystic has surpassed his prior books. Take the plunge, read The 49th Mystic and become who you were made to be. - Robin Teitelbaum

The 49th Mystic provided me with a reading experience unlike any I have had before. I will absolutely read it again. 
– Seth Streebin

This story is an amazing ride. Ted Dekker has out done himself with this book. – Jennie Beyer

Probably one of Ted Dekker's best books yet! The 49th Mystic took me deeper than any Dekker book I've ever read. – Sarah Lara

Oh. My. Goodness. I loved reading this book! I have already started recommending this book to everyone I know. – Randi Thayer 

Let's see, how would I describe this book? An enticing thriller? A roller-coaster ride? Spiritually enlightening? A story that's somehow able to both crush and elevate your worldview all at the same time? Yes! In fact it’s all of that and more. – Kent Roberts

Ted Dekker had me sobbing as early as chapter three in The 49th Mystic. I've never cried as hard due to the impact of a man's words on my heart while reading a fiction novel. And all it took was two sentences: "Remember who you are. Return to the truth of your origin and recognize yourself. – Alycia Morales

I have read every book Ted Dekker has ever written and this book touched me at a deeper level. The 49th Circle is packed full of suspense and action, but it is the practical examples of how we can apply the truth of GOD's love and who we truly are in him that reaches in and touches you. -Lisa Pfenning

I have read several of Ted's books and always walk away thinking "there is no way he can top this one" and every time he proves me wrong!! He is a master storyteller, endearing his characters to his readers, and taking them through twist and turns all the way through. The 49th Mystic is certainly no exception! Putting it down to take care of daily responsibilities was tough and I spent several late nights reading this on the edge of my seat wondering what was coming next. The second book cannot come out soon enough! - Heather McCowan

The book took me back to my younger years and the wonder and enjoyment I had reading the original Circle Trilogy. While they are not required to follow and enjoy this book, it was enjoyable to return to this world Ted Dekker has created. I am thankful for his return to the world of the Circle. - Greg Deitz

If you have not read anything by Ted Dekker, START! And start here. – Amy Cassiday

This book is on a whole other level compared to Ted's other novels. The drive behind the story is so compelling, that it forces you to look inward, at your own life, and ask yourself, "Do I truly believe like this? Do I have that level of faith to move mountains?" I'm starting my second read through and I can't wait to see what I missed and what more I can gain. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone. – Matthew Rogers

Whether or not you’ve read any of Ted’s other books, this one will bring you on a ride you never want to end. In a rushing thriller that spans two worlds and a whole lot of mysteries, Ted shows readers the true meaning of being of the world but not in it and shows us how we are all blind to the light that clearly lives within us. 
–Sara Rassler

This is another great Ted Dekker book; it did not disappoint! Two worlds, one unpredictable story that you cannot put down. – Jennifer Groen

Ted Dekker is one of my all-time favorite authors, and he has outdone himself with "The 49th Mystic." I laughed, I cried (make that sobbed), I stayed up late. I felt like I was literally physically present with Rachelle on her nail-biring adventures in Eden and Other Earth. Run, don't walk, to get this book. It is a life changer. – Joyce Fleetwood

I am always sad when I finish a good book, sorry that my escape into another world is over. I never wanted it to end! I am so glad it is NOT over! Fall 2018 and Rise of the Mystics can't get here soon enough! – Nancy Jackson

Just when I thought that Dekker's books could not get anymore intense, or thought provoking, I was proven wrong the second I opened this book. From the moment I started reading, I found it hard to put down. If not for having to sleep, work, or go to school I would have easily finished it in one setting. Not only was it hard to put down, but it also made me reexamine the way that I think, and view the world around me. If you truly want to see the world in a different light, while going on an intense journey, then I challenge you to read this book. 
– Chelsea Tanner 

Another incredibly life changing story by Ted Dekker. Whether you're new to the Circle or diving in again The 49th Mystic is sure to blow your mind. I was in tears from the prologue, knowing as soon as I began that I was about to journey an incredible journey. Rachelle is not the only one searching for the Seals of Truth. I too am on that journey. – Nataleigh Robinson

The 49th Mystic was beyond anything I had hoped for. Ted Dekker has outdone himself again. I’ve been reading books by Ted Decker for over 10 years and this novel blew me away. I 100% recommend this book, whether it’s your first or 20th novel of Ted Dekker’s. It is a true gem that is already close to my heart. – Kelly Palusis

Wow, what an impactful book. A story that grabs you from the first paragraph and keeps you till the very end. Can be read just for enjoyment but can also give pause to be introspective. I can't wait till the next one comes out! 
– Cindy Dickison

Ted Dekker never ceases to amaze me with his books! The adventure and surprise turns of this book will keep you up at night until you finish the book - and then you'll want to read it again and again! I am the 49th! Are you? – Glenda Bell

Ted Dekker has done it again. After a layoff of a few years, his return with The 49th Mystic turns out to be one of his best books. If you have never read any of his other books, or if you are curious as to the true meaning of Jesus Christ, The 49th Mystic is a good place to start. If you are excited about reading fast paced thrillers, then you should read this book. If you love Ted Dekker books, then you should definitely read this book because it is as good as the best books in his career. -Christopher Murphy

This was exactly the story I needed to read in my life right now. – Brianna Jackson

Ted Dekker fans of old will not be disappointed and first time Dekker readers should buckle up for an experience that they won’t forget. Read the book on the surface for a great read, and then read it again for an allegory that will change your life. – Onjaleke Brown

Ted Dekker’s The 49th Mystic is an incredible book. In addition to being a seriously great work of fiction, the book challenged my perceptions, not just intellectually, but heartfully. I recommend this book to Ted Dekker fans… and if you are not yet a fan, this book will make you one. Really. I mean it. – Dan Carrier

One of the best stories I have ever read. It takes you to another place and makes you forget whatever is going on in your life. You will not want to put this book down. When I finished reading I wanted more of this story to read. Ted Dekker never disappoints. This book will stay with me for a long time. Took me to a deeper level of thought and emotion. Never have I had a story impact me in such a deep and spiritual way. – Kristen Getter

This book is amazing! It sucks you in and you feel like your in that world. I haven't had a book do that in a long time. It is eye opening on how different people perceive the world around them. – Janis Thomas

To start with an understatement: The 49th Mystic definitely does NOT disappoint! Whether you are a diehard fan of Ted Dekker or not - you will be astounded by this story. Because it’s not just Rachelle’s story. It’s YOUR story. It’s MY story. It’s mind blowing- it’s life changing. – Jacqui Wilkins

What a great ride!!! This book hit the ground running and didn't stop and by not stopping, I mean it didn't even stop at the end...so now I have to wait until the next book comes out. If you've never read a book in the Circle series, this is a great place to start and will have you anxious to go and read the original books in the series (Black, Red, White & Green) once you finish The 49th Mystic. If you have read them you, like me, will be chomping at the bit when you finish to go back and read them again. The book is great for anyone of almost any age. I'm 48 and can't wait to give it to my 15 year old now that I'm finished. – Richard Scott

What makes this the best Dekker novel yet was the spiritual impact on my very soul. The insightful weaving of who I am (we are) as a new creation in Christ will impact me for eternity. Kudos to you Mr. Dekker...I finally get it! 
– David Risdon

This book took me to a place where I didn't know I needed to go; it made me cringe, it made me cry, it sent me deep into my thoughts, as I engulfed every word. It gave me new eyes to see with, from the very beginning and beyond the last page. Want your eyes opened to something incredible? Read this book! – Tamela Price

This book impacted me more than any book has in a long time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, regardless of if you have read any of Ted's other books. I plan to re-read it again as I don't think one time through is enough to get everything out of this book. I am still chewing on the nuggets in hear and can't wait to read the second book! - Doug VanDyk

This book is unreal in all of the best ways. Ted Dekker outdoes himself yet again, and this time he is breaking down the preconceived notions we hold to be true about this life. This story, which is actually a look into the heart of God, grabs you immediately and never lets go. Something about the story format reaches deep into your soul. Experience this journey to find your true identity, the person you have always been in Christ. You will not regret it. – Debra Erbacher

Another smash hit by Ted Dekker, must read and if you love it as much as me , go and read the Circle series after, it all fits together and is by far the most beautiful story I’ve ever read. I was hooked in the first chapter and you’ll have trouble putting it down. - Mark Simon

This is a great read and the beginning of something new while it holds onto something old. If you are a seasoned Ted Dekker fan or this is your first time reading one of his novels, this book will take you on a great adventure.  – Matthew Butz

This story was amazing! Even though I've never read the Circle books, it didn't matter at all. The book was thrilling, exciting and kept me wanting to read more. I actually intend to read it again, and am counting the days for Ted's next book. – Cora Scherer

Sometimes a book comes to when you need it most. Whether this is the first book you’ve read from the author, or one of many, it’s an engaging and thought provoking story!! Read it!! Just let yourself go and experience the mind bending journey! - Meme King
