Sovereign

By Ted Dekker, Tosca Lee (Hardcover Book, 2013)
Nine years after Rom Sebastian was thrust into the most unlikely of circumstances as hero and bearer of an unimaginable secret, the alliance of his followers is in disarray. An epic battle with The Order has left them scattered and deeply divided both in strategy and resolve in their struggle to become truly alive and free.

Only 49 truly alive followers remain loyal to Rom. This meager band must fight for survival as The Order is focused on their total annihilation. Misunderstood and despised, their journey will be one of desperation against a new, more intensely evil Order. As the hand of this evil is raised to strike and destroy them they must rely on their faith in the abiding power of love to overcome all and lead them to sovereignty.

SOVEREIGN wonderfully continues the new testament allegory that was introduced in FORBIDDEN and continued in MORTAL.

  • PRAISE FOR SOVEREIGN:

    "Intricate and well thought out are Dekker's tales. "Sovereign" is heavily laced with religious parallels, but they only added extra life and depth to this book. I could mention there is plenty of action and interesting characters, but that would be an understatement. There is so much more here, material and ideas and concepts that made me think as well as enjoy the book...so be sure you take the time to delve into "Sovereign." It's a different sword and fantasy novel, unlike anything out there. Which is good, because I didn't want to read another rehash of swords and magic. Dekker and Lee definitely set the bar a bit higher with "Sovereign."

  • Praise for FORBIDDEN:

    "...mammoth twists and head-pounding turns that will have readers and book clubs debating the roles of emotion and logic that drive human existence."
      --- Publishers Weekly


    Dekker and Lee have created an intriguing future world...poised on the edge of vast upheaval. [They] draw readers into it and make them eager to read more..."
      --- Booklist


    "With great plot twists, compelling writing, and unanswered questions, this is a must-read for Dekker fans..."
      --- Library Journal


    "FORBIDDEN: The Books of Mortals rocks with the same level of intensity and brilliance as Dekker's Circle Series. Riveting, resounding, and a magnificent blend of Dekker's and Lee's styles. I devoured FORBIDDEN."
      --- James L. Rubart, bestselling author 

  • PRAISE FOR MORTAL:

    "This edgy, suspenseful, winning follow-up to Forbidden continues Dekker's return to the New Testament Christian allegories ("Circle" Series) that made him so popular with CF readers.  Expect long waiting lists and consider ordering multiple copies."

      --- Library Journal  (Starred Review) 
     

  • "....the asides and descriptions can be quite funny, and the book offers plenty of food for philosiphizing concerning religion, states of consciousness, freedom, fate and the will to power.  A book that can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel by those who haven't read Book One."

      --- Kirkus Reviews

  • "MORTAL takes the splendid opening of Forbidden and raises the stakes in every way, offering more dramatic action, psychological nuance, and philosophical meat.  Based on this triumph, MORTAL gives every indication that by the time this trilogy is through, it will be a truly memorable ride."

      --- Crosswalk.com

  • "...Once again, Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee have provided readers with an adventure that sparks the imagination as well as some inspiring food for thought.  Fans of the series will be looking forward to the final book and what promises to be an exciting conclusion."
