Green ~ by Ted Dekker

Gripping drama. Thrilling suspense. Good and evil. Love and hate. Light and darkness. The apocalypse. If any of these phrases appeal to you, get ready, because Green by Ted Dekker has them all! Green is the final book in the Circle Series, following Black, then Red, then White. It is a thoroughly brilliant, fantasy redemption story, but with a more contemporary feel, like a modern Lord of the Rings or Narnia. It was almost alive in a sensory sort of way, meaning I felt I was actually experiencing emotion to what was being described – I experienced despair, horror, repulsion, fear, love, joy, hope, strength, etc. I even saw the most stunning of beauty and the vilest of evil.

While this is the final book of the series, it can be read first. I have not read the other three, but (with a bit of fear and trepidation) I really want to after reading Green. Once I picked it up, I could hardly put it down. At nearly 400 pages, it can easily be consumed in a weekend; it is such a page turner. Fans of Dekker, a master of suspense and story-telling, will once again be pleased with his work.


Book Zero: The Beginning and the End
By Ted Dekker

AS FORETOLD BY ANCIENT PROPHETS, an apocalypse destroyed Earth during the twenty-first century. But two thousand years later Elyon set upon the earth a new Adam. This time, however, He gave humanity an advantage. What was once unseen became seen. It was good and it was called...Green.

But the evil Teeleh bided his time in a Black Forest.

Then, when least expected, a twenty-four year old named Thomas Hunter fell asleep in our world and woke up in that future Black Forest. A gateway was opened for Teeleh to ravage the land. Devastated by the ruin, Thomas Hunter and his Circle swore to fight the dark scourge until their dying breath.

But now The Circle has lost hope. Samuel, Thomas Hunter's cherished son, has turned his back on his father. He gathers the dark forces to wage a final war. Thomas is crushed and desperately seeks a way back to our reality to find the one elusive hope that could save them all.Enter an apocalyptic story like none you have read. A story with links to our own history so shocking that you will forget you are in another world at all. Welcome to GREEN. Book Zero.
