Identity by, Ted Dekker

Publishing House: Outlaw Studios
Genre: Thriller, Christian Fiction
Rating: PG
Summary: Who am I?

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. I'm about to die.

So who are you?

Alright so by now, if you have read my posts or you actually know me, you will know that Ted Dekker is my favorite author and I tend to rave about his work….   Well this post is no different.

Identity is the first short story in the Eyes Wide Open book. So the way that Ted Dekker released this book was a little weird. What he did was offered Identity as a free book to anyone who wanted it and then over the course of 6-ish months he released the other three books (Mirrors, Unseen, and Seer).

These 4 short stories make up the book Eyes Wide Open. I have not read the other three yet because there were some series that I needed to complete that took so precedence but I plan to get to them soon so that I can get a review out for all of them. (If I read the last 3 in a few days then I may just do them all in one review)

Anyway, Identity is a great little story that will get you very interested in Christy and what is happening to her. So the synopsis doesn't really tell you that much about the story and I have found just by reading Identity that this is because there is no way to tell you about it without spoiling the book for you.

So since we don’t want to do that I will just give some brief reasons for why this book is rated PG. This book does not cuss (that I remember) so the reason this book is rated PG is solely due to violence and suspense.

This book is a quick read at only 66 pages but if you choose to read it that it is a small part of a bigger story and because of that you should really be ready to be sucked in because Identity is the shortest of all the books.
