Blurb: "My name is Nyah and I'm a hacker. I know things most people would never believe. Things that shouldn't exist, but do."

Seventeen-year-old Nyah Parks is a genius hacker who makes a living by cracking the firewalls of the world's largest corporations. But when the biggest job of her life goes wrong, she's plunged into a desperate situation with only one way out: one last hack that will either save her or kill her. So begins Hacker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering world around us, the seen and the unseen, and reminds us that there's far more to who we are than meets the eye.

Review: Hacker is the latest installment in Ted Dekker's Outlaw chronicles and it delivers a thrill ride.

It has as many twists and alleyways as Eyes Wide Open did (and probably Water Walker as well, but I have not read that installment as yet).

The story, naturally, revolves around hacking. While computer hacking does involve itself in the storyline, I also like Mr. Dekker's twist on it - a clue to be found on the wonderful cover.

Great addition to the Outlaw chronicles and a thrilling, fast-paced read.

Blurb: My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen and I'm about to die. I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking. Some will say that I'm not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don't even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave. My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.

First in the newest series from Ted Dekker, a master of suspense, whose books have sold 9 million copies, Eyes Wide Open is a raw adrenaline rush from the first page to the last.

Review: Since I have read a book or two of Mr. Dekker's, I was somewhat familiar with what to expect...and I wasn't disappointed.

Eyes Wide Open is a story - for me - about questions. Questions regarding who we are, how we see ourselves, how others want us to see ourselves, and whether or not we can look deep into ourselves and find our own "truth".

It is also a story of, metaphorically, falling through a rabbit hole. A rabbit hole that leads, in more ways than one, to the above-mentioned questions, while "making" the characters question not only themselves, but reality as well.

Before the story ends, there is also a shift in dynamics between the two main characters that should prove interesting in future books (if they re-appear in future books).

Thank you, Mr. Dekker, for another wonderful read filled with lots of twists and turns.
