Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 15reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by An emotional rollercoaster Ted Dekker has done it again! He has taken two characters from very different walks of life and brought them together in a tale that is fast-paced and exciting. Somehow he is able to delve into the deepest, darkest depths of the human psyche. So much, in fact, that everything Danny and Renee struggle with hits home. He draws the reader in so intensely that you feel as though you are them. These are things that you and I have dealt with. Perhaps you have a sister or a brother who has struggled in a similar way. It was beautiful and sad, thrilling and disturbing, at times tough to stomach...yet so worth it.I couldn't put this book down. I laughed. I cried. I got angry. It gave me hope. It kept me on the edge of my seat. This is a story I will be thinking about for days to come. Any book that can cause me to feel this way gets two thumbs up! Definitely his best book yet! 04/24/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Brilliantly written! "The Priest's Graveyard" by Ted Dekker is an attention-grabbing, fast-paced story that immediately engages the reader with one of the main characters, priest Danny Hansen. Danny grows up in Bosnia, where he experiences first-hand the brutalities of the Serbs, who murder his mother and sisters. He personally avenges their deaths and vows to spend his life protecting the innocent, by whatever means it takes. Here enters into the story a recovering heroin addict named Renee. She is rescued from the streets by her savior, Lamont. Although Lamont is a fanatic about rules and cleanliness, he takes Renee into his home. One day, Lamont doesn't come home and Renee sets out to find and exact justice on the person she knows is responsible for his death. Danny and Renee's paths cross and they are inevitably drawn together as they are both seeking the same murderous monster. The story races to a heart-pounding climax that leaves the reader breathless, filled with suspense until the very end.★ This is not only a superbly-written story with unexpected plot twists and believable, deep characters, but it also raises questions throughout that force the reader to examine their own convictions about law and grace, justice and love. Absolutely brilliant and deep! 04/26/2011

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Highly Recommended Dekker has woven a tale of love so deep and haunting that it will plague your mind days after finishing. You’ll stay on the edge of your seat from the very first chapter to the last, waiting for the resolve. Yet the resolve is nothing that you would expect or perhaps it is. For if you look deep enough, you will see the story is actually is not about the characters; it is about the deepest places of your heart. 04/30/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Amazing! Total Thriller!! As I dove into The Priest’s Graveyard, I was plunged into a whirlpool of love, lies, and an unquenchable passion for justice. Unable to escape, I rushed toward the last pages and found myself enthralled by Ted Dekker’s latest masterpiece.The characters are blinded by their convictions, and they dragged me right along with them. They are such simple characters, straight forward and single-minded, but at the same time, so incomprehensibly complicated (wow, there’s a tongue twister for you).Renee is willing to do whatever it takes, no matter the cost, no matter the pain, no matter the choices she must make to find justice and revenge. She believes in what she’s doing, in the decisions she’s making, in the judgment she’s casting, and that made her an entrancing and engrossing read. Although her logic is twisted by abuse and pain, I found myself empathizing with her, even in the crossroads of life-altering––or life-ending––decisions. She trapped me in her mind and showed me the world from her perspective.Danny is a misguided soul with motives you can’t get around. He made me wish I didn’t like him or what he was doing, but it was so impossible not to love him! Conflicting emotions followed me like a tail while discovering the rawest parts of this deeply wounded character. By the end, I loved him. Just loved, loved, loved him.I couldn’t stop myself from being on his side, even when he was doing atrocious things in the name of justice. Because in his mind, (and I found myself lured by his logic) the things he does are an act of love to the innocent souls in the world, who don’t deserve to be hurt, as he was.But in the end, its all gets turned on it’s head, as only Dekker can do. Brace yourself for a brilliant and haunting experience in the blood covered pages of this gripping novel. 04/30/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 A must for Dekker fans. You should really read this book when you have a decent amount of time on your hands so you can give it the appreciation it deserves and devour it in one or two sittings. The second you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. Humor mixed with wide eyed, edge of your seat action and situations that make your heart pound is what you'll find in Ted Dekker's latest novel. Without giving anything away, The Priest's Graveyard causes you to examine your own beliefs of right and wrong and judgement. Do you feel superior to others? Or do you only feel superior to those who inflict pain on others? Questions like these will wander through your mind as you embark on this wild ride with Renee Gilmore and Danny Hanson. It will leave you stunned and racing to the first chapter so you can read it again. 04/30/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by An amazing read! Different is one word to describe this book. It is not like most Dekker novels yet, it is. I loved Renee and Lamont…until I learned the truth of Lamont, that is. I loved Danny, the priest. This book is different in the “graphicness” as one of my friends put it, but not in a way that I would stop reading it. Graphic, in the sense, that some of the things that happened were quite shocking. (page 25 mainly). Renee’s OCD made me laugh. The love Danny shows, and his “Confession” at the end is…I don’t have a word for it. Amazing.All in all, I loved this book. As a novel I promoted for weeks, and bought 8 copies of,and was majorly excited about I was not let down. I couldn’t put it down—unless it was necessary. Amazing read!You will see some parts of yourself in some of the characters, Danny, or Renee maybe?? 04/30/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by AMAZINGNESS ★ ★  ★  I started the Priests Graveyard, by Ted Dekker with no amount of Trepidation, okay I did a little, but only in a small way. I was afraid I would ruin the book. I do not know why I was afraid. Ted has created such wonderful stories before!★ ★ ★  ★  I decided to finally crack the cover. Soon after the first page had been turned I slammed the book down and exclaimed, "THIS BOOK IS NOT DISSAPOINTING!" I then picked the book up and resumed my reading.★ ★ ★  ★  Two or maybe even five pages passed and I began to weep. Danny, The main character, goes through a terrible trauma.★ ★ ★  ★  I assure you, with no fear in my heart, that at that second I found this book Ted's "BEST SO FAR" as many headlines have said.★  04/30/2011
