As you all know, I just received and have now read Kiss by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy. I believe this is Healy's first book, but not Dekker's.
The first novel I ever read of Dekker's was When Heaven Weeps. What a powerful, beautiful story of God's passionate love for us. This is one of my absolutely favorite books of all time! The depth and insight of that book propelled me to buy more of Dekker's books.
Lately his books have seemed more action-packed, less insightful. I miss the deep conflicts between good and evil, the prominent spiritual truths, and the memorable characters found in his earlier works.
With that said, I enjoyed the fast pace of Kiss, the twists in the plot, and the happy ending. It was a page turner and from the first page begged me to discover the answers to all of the questions posed. The story does deal with the pain of mistakes, wounds and how we deal with them. I enjoyed those parts of the story as well.
Overall, Dekker and Healy did a great job of constructing a suspenseful story with some cool supernatural elements.
Have any of you read Ted Dekker before? What do you like about his plots?
