The future changes in the BLINK of an eye...or does it?

Seth Borders isn't your average graduate student. For starters, he has one of the world's highest IQs. Now he's suddenly struck by an incredible power--the ability to see multiple potential futures.

Still reeling from this inexplicable gift, Seth stumbles upon a beautiful woman named Miriam. Unknown to Seth, Miriam is a Saudi Arabian princess who has fled her veiled existence to escape a forced marriage of unimaginable consequences. Cultures collide as they're thrown together and forced to run from an unstoppable force determined to kidnap or kill Miriam.

Seth's mysterious ability helps them avoid capture once, then twice. But with no sleep, a fugitive princess by his side, hit men a heartbeat away, and a massive manhunt steadily closing in, evasion becomes impossible.

An intoxicating tale set amidst the shifting sands of the Middle East and the back roads of America, Blink engages issues as ancient as the earth itself...and as current as today's headlines.

This was my favorite book for a long time. The two main characters are so different, yet the stakes are high for both of them. I love the underlying message and the creativity with which it was delivered.

This book was a Roller Coaster Ride from the beginning to the end. I couldn't put it down once I started, and read it in one day. This book is one I'll read again just for the pure joy of it!

My first Ted Dekker novel. I was pretty impressed with the ideas and style, as well as enjoyed it.

Not one of Dekker's best. The two story-lines didn't mix well, the sudden onset clairvoyance and the fleeing Muslim princess falling in love with the American genius. The whole book felt more like a cheap novel

This is by far my favorite book ever!!! Love the suspense. I could hardly put it down! I also liked the way prayer changed Seth's future when he was trying to prove the existence of God. Read it twice and gonna read it again! :)

Another fantastic novel from Ted Dekker. Hot button topics covered in this one include traditional treatment of Muslim women, difference between religious prophets, and the existence of God or a god.

This was an all right book. Not as good as some of his others, but still worth the read.

I believe in God because only an idiot could look at the intricate balance of nature and believe it was not designed. Believe it or not, some people still believe a watch can form itself out of sand given enough time. They call it evolution.
