Immanuel's Veins

Ted Dekker's latest creation, Immanuel's Veins, is like no other vampiric tale you will ever read. It's not even really about vampires, at least not as we know them and certainly not as Stephanie Meyer has revamped them, pardon the pun. It's more a tale of true love.

Dekker always writes a story to make us think. That he plays with the current trend of stories about vampires and fallen angels (Yes, those are in the book too!) shouldn't be held against him. He does his story his way, no apologies.

In Immanuel's Veins, told mostly through the eyes of its main hero, Toma, Toma is a guard sent to protect the lives of the Cantemirs, a woman and her two twin daughters. His orders: don't fall in love with the twin Lucine because she is being saved for another. But almost as soon as Toma arrives, so do some very strange and beautiful men and women, neighbors and royalty from the Castle Castile. They seem to bewitch the Cantemirs, blood begins to flow, and Toma struggles between duty and love, not recognizing the mounting danger until it is too late.

This is a story about the power of blood, and it will have you rethinking all you know about those who drink it. It's a raw tale of the purest good against the blackest evil, and in this one, Dekker has surely written from the heart.

Immanuel's Veins is full of mystery, suspense, danger, seduction, lust, and power...and love, most of all, love. If you enjoy thrilling romantic sagas, beautiful women and strong men, epic fights, and even wooden stakes through the heart, this one was written for you.
