Rise Of The Mystics by Ted Dekker – Beyond The Circle Book 2


It all started with Black and someone by the name of Thomas Hunter, who entered another world – Other Earth as it’s called, and radically changed things by saving the world from an airborne virus.

All these years later, Rachelle, a girl born blind who was also able to enter this Other Earth,  changed the world as well, finding the first 3 seals in the previous book, only having two seals left to find…

Rachelle Matthew’s character is beautifully written, how she struggles to figure out what is going on and why she thinks things. She knows how to stand strong against the darkness that is in front of her, both in the present world and Other Earth. Some familiar faces return, as they play an amazing part.

Ted Dekker is one of my favourite writers and I have been a fan of The Circle Series since I first found out about it. Now, all of these years later (or has it been?), comes the conclusion of Beyond The Circle.

Ted Dekker hooks you with every page turning scene without wanting to put the book down. It is another heart-pumping adrenaline ride, finding out what happens to Rachelle Matthews and her father, along with Vlad Smith and everyone else. It is so beautifully written – every scene, every character. How they work together or against, and just how evident Christianity is within the pages of this book. It’s almost like a modern version of The Chronicles of Narnia if it could be compared to that.

Ted Dekker knows how to write, and he writes so amazingly well.

If you haven’t read the first book in the adventures of Rachelle Matthews, I would definitely recommend you read that. Further, then that, I would even recommend reading Black, Red, White, and Green – The Circle Series. They aren’t necessary to read Beyond The Circle, but they might help you gain some better insight I think is the right word?

If you want a book series that is absolutely worth the money, I would highly recommend this book.

Is the Circle truly finished?
