Several months ago at the local library I was looking for a new fantasy series to read. After browsing for a good 20 minutes, I ran into Ted Dekker’s “The Book of Mortals” Trilogy. What a mistake! I admit that I somewhat enjoyed the first book and the first half of the second book. Not once did I link the books to a Christian themed message. Near the second half of the second book I thought it was resembling a bit of Jesus, but didn’t think too much of it. I checked out the third book and it was very much about faith in a dead character and several messages of believing more.
WTF I thought? What is going on here? I looked back to the inside front covered and noticed one of the subject tags on the book was ‘Christian’. Again, WTF? Then I did some web searching and the truth was revealed. This series was a Christian themed ‘fantasy’ series. Ug. The third book was horrible. One of the worst books I’ve read in a long time. As I already stated, the first book was okay, the second book was meh, but not horrible, but the third book was horrible if not beyond horrible. DO NOT READ THIS TRILOGY!!!!
