Immanuel's Veins is a novel by the New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker, published by Thomas Nelson publishers. The novel follows the life, love and death of Saint Thomas of Russia and is told in the first person. This is Dekker’s first foray into writing a book in the first person, or from the protagonist’s perspective.

Immanuel’s Veins tells the story, in 1772, of the Cantemir family who are placed in the safe-keeping of Toma Nicolescu by Catherine the Great. Toma soon falls in love with Lucine Cantemir, the beautiful and good-hearted daughter of the family whom he is sworn to protect – and forbidden to love.

He tries to keep his love secret because of his heightened sense of duty, but when the dangerous Vlad van Valerick begins to pursue Lucine, Toma changes course.

Toma must choose between his duty and the love he feels for Lucine – especially when her very soul comes into danger.
