The 49th Mystic--Ted Dekker

Did you finish or are you still reading it?  I haven't kept up with him for the last 3 or 4 years, as I wasn't too impressed with some of his latest stuff.  So just interested in what you think of it.


I got tired of all his stuff being attached to The Circle series.  I liked his earlier works that were generally only one or two novels.  I like his daughter Rachel's stuff better these days.

I didn't even know the 49th Mystic was tied into the Circle series.  I might pass.  I have had the worst time keeping up with his series.  I understand why author's do it (having to reinvent characters and words every book is hard)...but even though the first three or four books were fantastic I've had a hard time remembering what has gone on with his later series work...like the characters or story lines just aren't strong enough to remember from novel to novel.

I just started it.  Yeah, it's tied to the Circle Series, so far it seems like a "next generation" kind of situation.

I read that last.  I liked it pretty well, but it seemed kinda slow at points.  I like the Thrawn character and wished he had actually been a part of the film story.  He was an intriguing character in Rebels.  He came across as a sort of Hannibal Lechter-type character (minus the eating people thing), someone who was clearly a villain, but had a lot of qualities that make you like and respect him.

I liked it as well.  Yes, it did have some slow parts but overall very well written.  I like how they added how Thrawn was analyzing people as he met them. And I like how he kept bringing up Anakin much to Vader's chagrin.

I'll be interested to know what you think of it once you are finished.  I did see there are at least two books in the series already.

So far it's pretty good.  In places it seems like a theological treatise in novel form.

I don't know that I would call it a "must read."  It's kinda stagnant in places and really only ramps up toward the end when...you have to get the next book to see what happens.  That's a big reason I think a lot of authors go the series route--people like me who have a hard time starting a story and not seeing it through to the end.  So with that in mind...

The Rise of the Mystics--Ted Dekker.

I picked up her books yesterday and will probably go to them next.

lol!  I've been known to do that as well.  Started to get really angry with Frank Herbert about the 4th novel into the Dune series.
