Did Ted Dekker write a romance?

Someone tweeted this trailer to me yesterday, and I have to say I'm intrigued. Intrigued enough to squeeze Immanuel's Veins into my pretty full fall schedule if someone can confirm this has a strong romantic storyline.

Watch this trailer. What does it look like to you? Gothic Christian romance? Edgy Christian romance? Romantic fantasy?




None of the Amazon tags say romance, and romance is not something I typically associate with Ted Dekker. So, has anyone read it? What d'ya think? Will I like it? How important was the romance to the story?

  2. I chose it as a book to review on Booksneeze. It is one of those books that has a certain day to post the review, so I haven't even looked at it yet, here is a link to a review I found that gives a pretty good synopsis of the book!http://www.thechristianmanifesto.com/index.php/2010/08/19/book-review-immanuels-veins-ted-dekker/

  5. @Brenda- Wow, that was an incredibly helpful link. They're calling it romantic suspense. I think this one is going on my wish list.

    Thanks for chiming in everyone. Hey, if any you end up reviewing it, or offering it as a giveaway, please leave your link in the comments here, I'd love to come check out your reviews.

  6. I'm thinking it will be an allegory of sorts. I will be doing a cool contest for this book and it will come with a tee shirt of the book. :)

  8. Hey, this is Ted Dekker. Romance, are your kidding? Of course it's Romance. I wrote this one for you all. Seriously. It's a bit steamy in places, but no sex and nothing offensive. Mostly it's a passionate telling of God's love for his bride, my answer to Redeeming Love :-)

    I can't wait to hear what you all think of it. I'll check back here for posts.
