The Girl behind the Red Rope by Ted and Rachelle Dekker Review

gbr

Synopsis:

Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history. When evil in its purest form is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure–and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red perimeter.

Her older brother’s questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she’s seen in a decade set in motion events that will question everything Grace has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides–but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth?

For the first time, bestselling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.

My thoughts:

In a lot of ways, this story reminded me of the film, The VIllage, which was a movie that I loved. A group of people living off the grid to avoid the terrifying Furies that are lurking outside the red rope that circles the perimeter of the compound.

I enjoyed the story but for some reason I had a difficult time connecting with the characters. I’ve found that fictional stories about spiritual warfare can be difficult to pull off. I didn’t find this one to be well done. I loved the atmospheric quality to the story but the plot was somewhat lacking.

Overall, this was a book that I was not bored by but I wasn’t a huge fan of it.

I received this book from the publisher to read and review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

My Rating:

2.5 stars
