Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dekker, the profilic best-selling author of more than 20 books including the "Book of Mortals" series and "The Circle" trilogy, draws on his exotic Indonesian childhood for his new thrilling adventure saga. . .Combining a rich visual portrait of a Stone Age civilization and a surprising spiritual redemption, this excellent book will engage suspense and historical fiction readers."—Library Journal, starred review

Told with gritty realism to match The Hunger Games, Ted Dekker's Outlaw is an epic story of triumph over trial and the far-reaching power of great personal sacrifice.—Novel Crossing

"Dekker's crossed a new threshold with OUTLAW. It's like nothing he's ever written, while at the same time, touching on the themes that made his previous works enjoyable. You can tell through the story that he's excited about the plot and the story and the message, and hopes that along the journey of reading, readers will go through just a bit of the journey he took when writing it. It's an astounding novel. But the most exciting part of this story is where it's going."
Life Is Story

"THE SANCTUARY may make you wonder if prisons manufacture more criminals than they rehabilitate. The vivid descriptions and drama are gripping, and the alternating POVs add depth to the characters and story. Dekker reminds us that we are all prisoners, though it may be our minds, vs. prison bars, holding us captive."

TED DEKKER is a New York Times bestselling thriller author. Heralded as a "master of suspense" by Library Journal, Dekker has sold millions worldwide, establishing himself as one of the most widely recognized author brands.

He began his career writing fantasy novels that explored spirituality (Black, Red and White) and has since become a major force in the mainstream fiction arena with his recent thrillers, "Adam," "Thr3e," "Skin," "Obsessed," "BoneMan's Daughters," which landed in the #10 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list in 2009, and "The Bride Collector". Dekker has been honored with a Christy Award as well as a Gold Medallion Award for Best Fiction. "Thr3e" and his novel "House" became feature films.

Dekker was born to missionaries and grew up among cannibals of Indonesia, and his peculiar upbringing gives him a unique perspective outside the cultural bubble, allowing him the freedom to share provocative insights in his fiction. After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States, earning his B.A. in philosophy and religion, and then went into business.

In the early nineties, Dekker decided to pursue his desire to write fiction, selling his company, moving his family to the mountains of western Colorado, and writing full-time. Two years and three books later his first novel, a supernatural thriller called Heaven's Wager, was published. Dekker proceeded to write 6 more supernatural thrillers, rising to the top of many bestsellers lists and earning himself critical acclaim and legions of fans. "Thr3e" heralded his launch into mainstream fiction and was followed by "Obsessed," "Skin," "Adam," and "BoneMan's Daughters," all of which hit the New York Times bestseller list.

Ted Dekker's fans are comprised of readers of all ages, backgrounds, and belief systems who love his compulsively readable stories, authentic characters, and universal and relatable themes that he explores from a unique point of view.

He resides in Austin, Texas with his wife and children. You can find him at Teddekker.com and Facebook.com/teddekker.

It is a challenge to love and forgive, in God's power, when we surely can't on our own.

In typical Ted Dekker form, this story is gripping from the very beginning and keeps the reader hooked until the very end.

Outlaw is an incredible story with very well written characters, an intriguing plot, and a powerful message.

EDIT: Possible spoiler warning.

A dream. That's what sent Julie Carter to Indonesia. She wasn't exactly sure what she'd find or where exactly she'd go, but on the basis of that dream she packed only the essentials for her and her two-year-old Stephen, and headed out for one of the few civilized areas of New Guinea. But the dream would soon become a nightmare.

A freak storm. That's what wrecked the ship and left Julie Carter the sole survivor, captured by the Tulim people. Her mourning for Stephen is tempered only by her own need to survive. Thrown into an alien world where she is considered less than human, Julie must adapt to survive--learning the customs and seeking the favor of her captors. Her value to the Tulim rests solely in her ability to bear a son fathered by one of the warring princes.

A twist. Stephen is discovered alive and now everything Julie has accepted about her new life is thrown into a quandary. His survival gives her both hope and dread: hope because he is alive, dread because his life is bound to cause war and death.

Outlaw is the book I've been waiting on Dekker to write. It's not that his previous books over the past couple years haven't been good (they have), but that I wanted to see Ted write something that he hadn't written before, with a unique setting and a compelling storyline and a powerful message. Outlaw accomplishes all of that. Readers will be talking about this one and discussing it weeks after they close the final page.

Ripped from the culture of Dekker's childhood, Outlaw is a unique story set deep in the jungles of Indonesia, where the rules of modern culture do not apply. It's the survival story of a woman facing impossible odds in that alien culture.

There are few authors as fearless as Dekker. Sometimes it felt like he was opening up his chest cavity to reveal his heart. Missionary work is sometimes romanticized, but this showed an incredible sense of scope as it came to the horrors that some have to endure. It was thought provoking and life changing.
I felt like Dekker took me by the hand and showed me around his childhood home. In the words of Hemingway, "All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer."
Dekker is truly a writer.

First of all, I am a die-hard Dekker fan. I read through this book in two days, the whole way thinking that this is the Dekker I have been waiting for since the Circle Series (I HIGHLY recommend that, by the way!). I was in tears almost the whole way through.

Then...

I got to the second section of the book and everything went downhill from there. Now, I am a Christian, and I fully appreciate spiritual parallels in literature....in moderation. This was just too much, and too repetitive. I began to feel like I was reading the same thing over and over again. The stories of Julian and many other wonderful characters were just cut off. I was left wanting so much more. The story just held me in its merciless grasp, and then vanished! Stephen was underdeveloped, unrealistic, and lacking in emotion. I wish we could just throw away the whole second section and rewrite the story from there. I love Ted Dekker as a novelist. The Circle Series is my absolute favorite book series of all time, and I cannot fully express my deep disappointment in the second part/ending of Outlaw.

Ted Dekker returns to form with this prequel (of sorts) to Eyes Wide Open.

It's 1963, a mother is traveling, by sea, with her son. The horrific happens when the ship wreaks and the two are separated. Julian believes her son drowned in the storm and she is captured by savage tribe in the middle of nowhere, earth. Thus begins her terror-filled existence in a culture she can't understand.

Dekker has entered a new focus to his storytelling. What began as hints in Sovereign now come to full force in Outlaw. Why are Christians some of the most miserable people alive? If we are people set free from sin, why are we so depressed and defeated?

Dekker tackles this question within his adrenaline-laced plot and intriguing characters. There are moments with the jungle tribes that feel repetitive: Julian is constantly threatened with death and you're sure it's coming only to be left to live another day ... with the threat of death tomorrow. After a few chapters of this, I no longer cared.

The richness of the jungle tribes and setting come about because of Dekker's obvious personal history living in Indonesia. As you read the first part of the story, you are actually experiencing the surroundings with Julian. It feels/reads so real.

The latter part of the story takes a twist with typical Dekker-yanks.

It's at this point where you realize where he's going with this story and then the larger series. (If you've read the Eyes Wide Open series you'll have a head's start)

This is an absolutely fantastic read not only for the story but for the deep thoughts you'll be left with.

I can't wait for the next one!
