I really liked this book. The main characters are likeable and the pace is fast enough to keep you turning pages, but not so fast that you get left behind! I believe anyone interested in the spiritual aspects of the book will be well pleased. Seth and Miriam both progress spiritually throughout the story even though it remains a conflict between them through most of it. The story of the Saudi princess trying to escape the bondage placed on women by her faith and her country is a pleasing one and you will find yourself rooting for her from the beginning! Great story and well worth the read! You won't want to put it down so it should be a quick read, but pleasing!

Seth Borders isn't your average graduate student. For starters hehas one of the world's highest IQs. Now he's suddenly struck by an incredible power - the ability to see multiple potential futures.

Still reeling from this inexplicable gift, Seth stumbles upon a beautiful woman named Miriam. Unknown to Seth, Miriam is a Saudi Arabian Princess who has fled her veild existence to escape a forced marriage of unimmaginable consequences. Cultures collide as they're thrown together and forced from an unstoppable force determined to kidnap or kill Miriam.

Ted Dekker not only has a great imagination he has a great understanding of the Arab world and their culture and creates a very true and real tale that will leave you hanging on the edge of your seat!

Oh my goodness, this book is good! This is the first book by Dekker that I have read, and I found it very hard to put down. I made the mistake of swapping my copy on this site a while ago, so I have now gone and requested it from someone else so I can read it again! I don't usually reread fiction books, but it has been about a year since I read this one, and I was really wishing I hadn't swapped my copy. Go ahead and request this book, but I don't think I'll turn loose of my copy again any time soon!

This is Ted Dekker at his best. He kept my interest all the way through even if it is a little different story line than I usually read.

I really enjoyed this book. It is fast-paced and has a good plot. Maybe not super realistic but a great story!
