I read this authors first novel The Choosing because of her name and the fact that I was hooked to the novel from the first page and couldn't put it down.  The story is gripping and touched my soul. Now Rachelle has The Calling book two in the series. Rachelle examines the way fear can become a controlling factor in our lives,, She also explores how trusting your true identity in God's strength and plan can bring your peace.

RACHELLE DEKKER SHARES a story from her own life that explores the very statement she writes about in The Calling.

Back Cover: Remko Brant had never been so sure of anything as escaping the Authority City with Carrington Hale. But bravado comes easy when you have nothing to lose. Now a husband, father, and the tactical leader of the Seers, Remko has never had so much at risk.

As he and his team execute increasingly dangerous rescue missions inside the city, they face growing peril from a new enemy. Recently appointed Authority President Damien Gold claims to be guiding a city shaken by rebellion into a peaceful, harmonious future. But appearances can be deceiving. In order to achieve his dangerous ambitions, Gold knows he must do more than catch the rebels—he must destroy the hope their message represents . . . from the inside out.

With dissension in his own camp—and the CityWatch soldiers closing in—Remko feels control slipping through his fingers. To protect those he loves, he must conquer his fears and defeat Gold . . . before one of them becomes his undoing

Back Cover: Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—to end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.

But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. Though the whispers contradict everything she’s been told, they resonate deep within.

Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, yet she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.

ABOUT RACHELLE DEKKER: The oldest daughter of New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker, Rachelle Dekker was inspired early on to discover truth through the avenue of storytelling. She writes full time from her home in Nashville, where she lives with her husband, Daniel, and their diva cat Blair.

BOTH of these books are now ready for purchase on line and in stores!! I read The Choosing and was caught up in this fantasy world that resembled things on earth. Similar to that of the Divergent movie series world. The Message of the book touched the core of my being. (to read my full review click on this link )

I'm looking forward to reading The Calling and what this author has to say about fear. In the beginning of The Calling Rachelle shares a poem written by her sister Kara. The first lines of the poem are: 

"Fear only exists when I believe.
When I give it a name, a face, a hand to grip me.
For I fear tomorrow and I fear the past.
I fear the hellos and the good-byes. I fear my monsters: I fear myself."

The poem continues and is powerful. I can relate to this and know that when I read The Calling it will be another life touching moment as I ponder the message and let God speak to my heart!
