I have a humble suggestion for Barnes and Noble when it chooses its daily deals for the Nook--they should acknowledge the fact that not only are a lot of Nook owners not Christian, but that many of those who ARE are not of the conservative evangelical persuasion. I'm getting tired of checking out the daily deal every day only to find yet another crappy Christian (read--right-wing) fiction title or a self-help book that urges readers to look to the Bible for answers. There have been numerous such titles in recent months. There are plenty of books out there that would appeal to a larger audience. Throw us a bone once in awhile.

    more from this reviewer

    This is the 2nd book in the "Book of Mortals" trilogy.

    This is the 2nd book in the "Book of Mortals" trilogy. In my review of Forbidden (book 1), I expressed some concern that Dekker was going back to a lot of his Circle Trilogy themes but in a different story. Book 1 was good, but it wasn't one I wrote home about. I felt like I had to push myself through it at times. I was not expecting much in book 2, Mortal. But, I found this book moved much faster than the first, had some interesting and unforseen plot twists, and made me ask some questions about my own faith. Yes, it still had some circle-esq themes to it, but there were some very strong New Testament analogies that he brought home for me. He and Tosca made it real, and I felt the emotions. You will find Rom's world has changed and not what you think. There will be enemies within and without, but new friends as well. I was pleased with the ending, and I am very much looking forward to the 3rd and final book.

    Can't wait for the next one

    I love all of Ted Dekker's books. The first in this saga, was more exciting, but I loved this one as well. I can't wait for the next one.
