I'm a fan of dystopian novels, so when I heard about The Girl Behind the Red Rope by Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker, I knew it was a book that I just had to read sooner rather than later. Everything about the synopsis was calling out my name. Luckily, this book lived up to the hype.

As I stated previously, the synopsis of The Girl Behind the Red Rope definitely left me intrigued. Grace has seen what not following her religious community's strict rules can bring. However, when a young boy makes his way into their tight community, Grace begins to question everything she's been taught which puts her in extreme danger.

Everything flowed so smoothly including the pacing which never let me down. I was constantly finding excuses to finish reading The Girl Behind the Red Rope since I had to know what would happen next. While I felt the plot was predictable more often than not, I still really enjoyed this book. I felt like their were no cliff hangers, and all of my questions were answered by the ending.

As for the Christian aspect of this book, it didn't read like a Christian novel most of the way through. I'd say it was probably around the last quarter of the book where Christianity came into play. I didn't think it was overly preachy although I think that those who aren't very spiritual or who are agnostic or are atheist may feel it's a tad on the preachy side. I would say The Girl Behind the Red Rope is more anti-religion and pro-Christianity overall. That's what I took from it anyway. It does have a really good message regarding love though which I found really nice to read about.

I very much enjoyed how every character in The Girl Behind the Red Rope was written. I felt like I was actually part of their world, stuck in the same community with them. Grace is a very likable character. I loved how the characters made her feel like a real person by giving her the conflicting thoughts as to who was to be believed throughout the novel. I enjoyed Grace's thought process about everything throughout the book. While I knew who and what she should choose, it was easy to see why she was so torn. Bobbie and Sylous were both very intriguing characters. I never trusted Sylous from the start, but Bobbie was one character that I wasn't sure if she actually had Grace's best interest at heart or if she had ulterior motives. There were times I despised Rose, not because she wasn't written poorly, in fact, she was written perfectly, but because of how much trust she put into Sylous and how overly judgmental she could be sometimes. I know that Rose was only going on what she thought to be true, but there were just so many times I wanted Rose to disappear! My favorite character was Eli. I loved his innocence and how happy go lucky he was.

Trigger warnings for The Girl Behind the Red Rope include cult mentality, violence, and murder.

All in all, The Girl Behind the Red Rope is such a fantastic read with such a powerful message. The characters are written beautifully, and the plot is done superbly. I would definitely recommend The Girl Behind the Red Rope by Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker to those aged 15 . Christians will definitely enjoy this book, but I think even non-Christians will probably love it as well. ( )

Writing: 4.5; great writing from the father-daughter duo.
Theme: 4.5; after being warned of a coming catastrophe as punishment for the sins of mankind, the inhabitants of Haven Valley are coerced into forming an isolated community to stay protected and free from the rest of the devastated world; however, when siblings Grace and Jamie investigate, they learn things are not as they seem, and when a young boy named Eli appears, Grace must make a decision that could cost her a great deal.
Content: 4.5; some violent scenes featuring supernatural entities and a few deaths, although nothing beyond blood is mentioned.
Language: 5.0; nothing objectionable.

The Girl Behind the Red Rope, the latest novel by Ted Dekker, is his first with his daughter, fellow author Rachelle Dekker. In this tale, the community of Haven Valley are met by a mysterious man named Sylous, who warns them that he has been sent by God to give them time to isolate themselves from the rest of the world so they might survive an impending annihilation of the human race, only if they confide in him and trust in him alone. The leaders of the community, Harrison and Rose, agree and lead their flock into Sylous's care, staying separated from the rest of the world, which has been overrun by the Fury, shadowy ghouls that feed on their helpless victims. Siblings Grace and Jamie -- polar opposites, as Grace is more law-abiding and Jamie is a rebellious risk-taker -- soon learn that the world isn't annihilated like they've been led to believe. After their "sin" is revealed, a sudden change occurs and Jamie completely changes his personality. Searching for answers, Grace finds a young boy named Eli who claims to hold the key to unlocking the potential locked away from the Haven Valley residents -- and that Sylous is not the angel he claims to be. Defiance proves to be a crippling factor when Grace risks it all to uncover the truth, finding that her true allies are few and far between. A thrilling read, this novel has all of the qualities that have made Ted Dekker's books the exciting volumes they are renowned as. The addition of his daughter's talents have done nothing but help the book, and it's moral implications are strong, stating that Christians are too bogged-down in their fear to fully tap into their potential as the light of God. A great, thrilling book that combines both supernatural fantasy and Christian morality into a solid tale. There are a few moments later on that cause the story to drag, but it actually flew by quite fast. Highly recommended, especially for fans of the authors and the genres they excel in. ***Finished October 26, 2019*** ( )

Grace, like the other in habitants of Haven Valley, adheres to a strict set of rules, all designed to keep her safe when a cruel punishment is unleased on the unbelieving world. Their fear of not being good enough to escape that punishment keeps them committed to following the rules as set forth by their prophetess, Rose.

But, although forbidden, two have ventured outside the perimeter and not been destroyed. And two, Ben and Eli, have ventured into Haven Valley. But those living in the valley cannot accept the innocent child’s lack of fear. Their own fears keep them from seeing the love and light that fills the boy.

Grace, caught up in the quintessential battle between good and evil, must overcome her own fears to find the answers. Is the child the Fury? A demon? An angel? What is true? What is deception? And who speaks the words she must believe?

Strong, well-developed characters and a captivating plot filled with unexpected twists combine to create a palpable tension that radiates from the page, building suspense and keeping readers on the edge of their seats. Ominous, dark, allegorical; the telling of this tale is both uplifting and inspiring. Readers will find it difficult to set this one aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended. ( )

This book is not the typical Christian fiction that I normally read! The father and daughter writing team of Ted and Rachelle Dekker have created an intriguing tale of Grace and Jamie and the thirteen years that they have lived "behind the red rope" in a secluded community in the hills of Tennessee. Grace was six when she witnessed the appearance of an angel named Sylvanus and what was the beginning of their separation from the outside world. Now, thirteen years later, her brother Jamie begins to question as he secretly begins to slip beyond the perimeter of the red rope to view the outside world. Grace fears that he will be discovered and that they both will be ejected from this place that they call home. It is only when her father and a young boy show up that Grace begins to find errors in much of what she's been told and she has her own questions that need answering!

The Girl Behind the Red Rope shows how fear can control our lives and how the best intentions can be destroyed by this emotion. I found this to be a fascinating story with intriguing characters and even though I have many questions I do see that love is the central theme among the symbolism used by the authors. The members of this group were like many people: they thought that they must be perfect to earn God's love but we know that perfection isn't possible and that God loves all of us. It is His Grace and Jesus's sacrifice that makes our redemption possible.

The Girl Behind the Red Rope has certainly made me think and it is a book that I want to read again, if only to gain more insight!

I received a copy of this book from Revell but a positive reiew was not required. These are my honest thoughts. ( )
