The great mystery revealed

Rise of the Mystics (Beyond the Circle Book #2) by [Dekker, Ted]

Ted Dekker’s “The 49th Mystic” was just the beginning of Rachelle Matthews’ journey from blindness to sight.  Rachelle soon discovers that her life in Eden, Utah, and her haunting dreams of another world are co-mingled and she must find five seals (three in her “dream world” and two on Earth) in order to keep both worlds from falling into chaos thanks to the Shadow Man known as Vlad.  Spoiler Alert:  At the end of “The 49th Mystic”, Rachelle has found three of the five seals.

“Rise of the Mystics” continues Rachelle’s journey to find the last two seals which can be found only on Earth.  Eden, Utah is gone, and Rachelle is now in a research facility near Washington, D.C.  Thinking that she is being treated for schizophrenia, Rachelle is trying to understand what is happening in her life.  What is real and what isn’t?  Can she believe her eyes or her heart?  Can she trust what she sees or what she cannot see?  Is she blind, though seeing?

Rachelle’s journey for truth is no different than ours.  We have sight but don’t truly see the truth of our existence.  We face battles but don’t truly know our enemy, nor do we know truly our Savior.  We don’t know or understand the strength we have at our disposal.

Ted Dekker’s passion for biblical truth and talent for storytelling is woven together in a narrative about a journey from blindness to sight—from a place of doubt to a capacity for trust.  Do we truly see?

“Rise of the Mystics” is a novel of fiction, but it is also a journey of self-discovery.  Are you ready to take a trip? Are you ready to find out who you really are?  Don’t be surprised if, as you read about the five seals, your masks fall off and you truly see for the first time what God sees when He looks at you.
