More About ted dekker
Ted Dekker (born October 24, 1962) is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.
Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of time away from their children, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was a stranger as both fascinating and lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.
After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States to study Philosophy and Religion. Upon earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he entered the corporate world and proceeded to climb the proverbial ladder. But his personal drive left him restless and, after many successful years, he traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing.
In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. Now fully enamored by the the process and the stories, he realized that storytelling was in his blood and a new obsession to explore truth through story gripped him anew.
He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published.
Dekker’s novels have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two of their daughters.
Spanish Bio: Ted Dekker, autor de mas de veinticinco novelas, es un autor de mayor venta del "New York Times".

A great 2nd... May 4, 2008
Once again, the plot is fast and intoxicating as Johnis rushes to save those he loves, following his heart against all odds into the very centers of darkness, being forced to trust in the light of Elyon to prevail.
the mission for the books is on in this second book but we finally start to get a more personal and real look at our hero, giving some much needed character development after the first series. the plot is again exciting and leaves you desperate to get to the end, to know how it ends. However, there are a few times that it seems circumstances/situations are too easily resolved and though a great, quick read, by the end, I was hoping for something a little more.
I would give it a three for lack of detail in the world and a more complex execution of the plot, but it is tagged for young adult AND i can't deny I raced through the book, enjoying every minute....
KCS Awesome Book!!!!! Infidel Apr 29, 2008
Johnis stepped forward and lifted the ring. He recognized it immediately. "My mother's ring!" "Your mother's?" Silvie asked. 'Michal wanted you to know that the Horde took it?' But Johnis didn't think that was what Michal had meant by leaving the ring. Sweat beaded on his forehead. "She's alive." Johnis is a regular 16 year old in a land similar to our own. There are no cars or electricity, and you are permitted to get married at age 16. In this land there are two tribes, the Forest Guards, whom Johnis is a part of, and the Horde. The Horde and the Forest Guards have been in a long war and the Horde believes they can defeat the Forest Guards. Johnis, while watching the tryouts for new recruits is suddenly pushed into the game. Johnis and three other companions were sent on a mission. Their original mission was to find 4 Catalina cacti, but while on the mission he and his companions, Darsal, Billos, and Silvie, run into the Horde. He is saved by a white bat called a roush and he is told he is to find the 6 Lost Books of History, books that are so powerful you will die if you open it. These books are the final hope of defeating the Horde, but he's not the only one searching for the books. Teeleh, an evil bat wants to use the books' power to take over all the land. Johnis is in a race to find the books... (End of book 1) After he receives 3 books he heads home. He is honored and celebrated as a hero because everyone believes he escaped the Horde. After the celebration he runs into Michal, the roush he ran into earlier. Michal hands him a ring where he finds out that his long lost mother, who was taken prisoner of the Horde, is still alive. Now he has a new mission, to find his mother... This Fantasy Fiction book teaches one that they should always obey God's laws. Johnis betrayed his people by taking over a hundred forest guards to save his mother. He did not find his mother and killed more than half of them in battle. This book is full of action and suspense, Ted Dekker is an amazing author. Infidel is a great second book in the series; I can't wait until the saga is complete. I believe both teenagers and adults will love this fun and short book, anyone will enjoy this book and I'm sure everyone will love the series.
