An intoxicating tale set amidst the shifting sands of the Middle East and the back roads of America - part mystery part romance.

Ebook version from the library. This was a great love story without sex or profanity. There was plenty of action and suspense to keep me turning the pages and engaged. ( )

One of Dekker's most interesting tales yet! I was worried that the end might be a let down, but it is certainly not! I love how simple a concept it is and the intellectual context it contains. He put so much though and research into this novel, you can just tell! ( )

Seth has an IQ higher than Einstein and looks much cuter. Speaking with his friend and mentor Samuel Harland, he acknowledges that there is a God; the evidence in the order of the world makes this apparent. However, Seth also maintains that prayer cannot be effective when an all-knowing God has pre-decided the future. Then he starts seeing visions of the immediate future, meets an Arabian princess, and his world is flipped on its end. ( )

I have never read a Ted Dekker, and it wasn't too bad. There were some inaccuracies about Muslims (Calling them "Arabic men" instead of "Arab men"), and some of the dialogue was incredibly sappy or frivolous at times, but I did want to keep listening to the audiobook. So, that says something. He is above average for Christian fiction. The narrator was OK, but he didn't do the greatest job with women's voices, especially Miriam's! It was a bit annoying to hear his high pitched "woman voice." ( )

The future changes in the blink of an eye...or does it?

Miriam is a Saudi princess promised to another, a pawn in a political struggle that could shift the balance in the Middle East. Seth is a certified genius with a head full of numbers, a life full of baggage, and an attitude born on the waves of the Pacific. Cultures collide when they find themselves thrown together as fugitives in a high-stakes chase across Southern California. A growing attractions and a search for answers fuel their flight for survival...but with no sleep and a massive manhunt steadily closing in, their chances of surviving any future are razor thin.
