Ted Dekker, 1962-

Book - 2018

Some say the great mystery of how one can live in two worlds at once died with Thomas Hunter many years ago. Still others that the gateway to that greater reality was and is only the stuff of dreams. They are all wrong. Rachelle Matthews, who grew up in the small town of Eden, Utah, discovered just how wrong when she dreamed and awoke in another world. There she learned that she was the 49th Mystic, the prophesied one, tasked with finding five ancient seals before powerful enemies destroy her. If Rachelle succeeds in her quest, peace will reign. If she fails, the world will forever be locked in darkness.

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Dekker completes the saga begun in The 49th Mystic in this fast-moving spiritual adventure. Rachelle Matthews is on a mission to find five seals of truth in two different dimensions (present and future Earth) before Vlad Smith, aka Shadow Man, can destroy the world. The battle between Rachelle and Vlad continues, with Vlad doing all in his power to prevent Rachelle from finding the final two seals. After Vlad kills Rachelle's father, frames her for a church bombing, and has her mind erased, he is confident his victory is assured. But Rachelle has forces working on her behalf: in the present, scientist Steve Collinsworth helps her escape, reclaim her memories, and utilize her exceptional psychic and physical powers. In the future, mystic Talya guides Rachelle on her journey. Thomas Hunter (from Dekker's Circle series) also travels between dimensions to assist Rachelle in her quest. Despite Vlad's efforts, light will conquer darkness and the Shadow Man will vanish. Though the allegorical story is powerful and thought-provoking, the portrayal of God as love without judgment and an afterlife in which all believers reach heaven regardless of past evil deeds may not sit well with all readers.
