About the Book:
Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate. Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his mother’s life. Now he’s a priest who lives by a law of love and compassion. It is powerful men and hypocrites who abide by legal law but eschew the law of love that most incense Danny. As an avenging angel, he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, at any cost.

About the Author:

My Review:
Awesome, awesome, awesome! Did I mention AWESOME?! That is exactly what I think of Ted Dekker’s latest book, The Priest’s Graveyard. It is a thrilling thriller by an absolutely FANTABULOUS author! Now, I haven’t always thought that Ted Dekker’s work was fabulous….in fact, the first book I ever read by him was Green. And, quite frankly, I hated it. But, if you know me and my blogging tastes, I ALWAYS give the author’s works more than one chance, because, like the rest of us, sometimes they have a flaw in their writing and something might not be quite right. So, I gave Dekker another shot with The Bride Collector….I was in love from page one! Then I toured his Immanuel’s Veins book. WOW! Another HIT! Now, I’m touring his newest book and to me, it’s his best piece of work YET! YAY!

The Priest’s Graveyard is thrilling beyond thrills. This one had me on the edge of my seat and my heart continuously pounding. I felt an actual part of the story. Between Danny and Renee, both seeking out the same awful man, I had no idea which twist Dekker was going to through in next. That is the PERFECT thrilling novel. Now, I know you are wanting me to tell you a bit more about the plot line. But, I never giveaway spoilers, so I am stopping with what I have written. I will ramble on and on about all the fascinating aspects of this novel and give away the ending, for sure!

Aren’t I such a meanie? Teasing ya’ll like that? Well, let me tell you that this FANTABULOUSLY written novel by an equally fantastic author deserves so many more stars than simply 5. Can we try 5 billion?!?!?!?! That’s what I think needs to be given to this un-put-downable, roller-coaster up and down, breathtaking suspense novel! I am in love with Dekker’s thrillers and will continue to be on the look out for more like this one. And, if you happen to be new to Dekker’s work, then PLEASE, DO NOT hesitate to pick up a copy, or even download a digital copy of this mind blowing novel! Well done, Dekker….looking forward to your next moving thriller!
