Ted Dekker at his best. His writing is consuming. This is an easy page-turner, with unexpected twists and turns, characters you learn to love, characters you learn to hate and just altogether a fantastic story of the power struggle between Good and Evil.

whoa!! This book is awesome!!! I read it very quickly. One of those books you get angry with because you get nothing else done until you finish the book

I had read "House" by Dekker and Peretti, and had bought "Showdown" about the same time. I had never read Dekker before, but this book was hard to put down. The last 100 pages just don't stop until you finish. It moves so quickly at the end, I was unable to stop until it was done. Looking forward to reading more from him.

Too bloody and gory for me, and too detailed about the bloody parts. I might have been able to read this book if I wasn't going to be reading it during my lunch breaks at work..but still, the story was already confusing, and the gore just really got to me this time around. His books with me, either I like them or I don't. And this one I didn't.

Another great suspense thriller from the pen of Ted Dekker. I didn't realise until I posted it to trade that it is book one of a series. Good to know that there are more coming!

This book has kept me guessing from the first page. If you love Christian mysteries you will love this book. If you love anything by Ted Dekker then you will love this book.

Another good one by Dekker, at times it bogged down, but the story itself was good, if predictable.

I enjoyed the book, but Blink is still my favorite Ted Dekker book.

Ted Dekker writes stories much like Dean Koontz. Everything starts out kind of normal, then something wierd happens. This story moves along well and the suspense continues to mount, but the story has a few too many holes for a fully satisfying read.
