Outlaw is the transformational epic of Julie Carter, set deep in the forbidding jungles of Irian Jaya, far from the comfortable home in Atlanta where she was raised. Taken into slavery among a sophisticated stone age civilization bound by ancient laws, her value rests solely in her ability to produce a son for one of the warring princes.
Even more, Outlaw is the story of her infant son, Stephen, presumed drowned at sea. When Stephen is found alive, Julie can only keep him alive through a series of staggering choices.
Eighteen years later, Stephen learns that his mother may still be alive. The price he will pay to find and save her forever alters his world. He is Outlaw, and this is his origin, before returning to America.
Outlaw is the first in a franchise of stories about one of the most gripping characters written by Ted Dekker.

Told with gritty realism to match The Hunger Games, Ted Dekker's Outlaw is an epic story of triumph over trial and the far-reaching power of great personal sacrifice.--Novel Crossing
"THE SANCTUARY may make you wonder if prisons manufacture more criminals than they rehabilitate. The vivid descriptions and drama are gripping, and the alternating POVs add depth to the characters and story. Dekker reminds us that we are all prisoners, though it may be our minds, vs. prison bars, holding us captive."

"Dekker's crossed a new threshold with OUTLAW. It's like nothing he's ever written, while at the same time, touching on the themes that made his previous works enjoyable. You can tell through the story that he's excited about the plot and the story and the message, and hopes that along the journey of reading, readers will go through just a bit of the journey he took when writing it. It's an astounding novel. But the most exciting part of this story is where it's going."
