Author: Ted Dekker
Back Cover: “The future changes in the BLINK of an eye…or does it?
Seth Borders isn’t your average graduate student. For starters, he has 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 veiled existence to escape a forced marriage of unimaginable consequences. Cultures collide as they’re thrown together and forced to run from an unstoppable force determined to kidnap or kill Miriam.
Seth’s mysterious ability helps them avoid capture once, then twice. But with no sleep, a fugitive princess by his side, hit men a heartbeat away, and a massive manhunt steadily closing in, evasion becomes impossible.
An intoxicating tale set amidst the shifting sands of the Middle East and the back roads of America, Blink engages issues as ancient as the earth itself…and as current as today’s headlines.”
My Review: I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from beginning to end. It really makes you think about how what you do can affect the future – and about the power of prayer. The readers are well-written, the humor is good, and the story original and exciting. It’s not my favorite book, but it was engaging and entertaining. Mind you, it had some adult themes running throughout it and some suggestive remarks and comments – but it was a good book which I liked reading.
My Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5
