Red - by Ted Dekker

“The Stakes of the mind-bending story spun in Black are raised to a new level in Red. In one world, Thomas Hunter must lead a small, highly trained force of 30,000 against an unstoppable army of a million warriors. In the other he will face an evil beyond the scope of his imagination.”

Book two of Ted Dekker’s “Circle Trilogy” takes the hero Thomas Hunter deeper into his “dream world.” Here we find that Thomas has been living, dreamless, in the world of Elyon for 15 years. While only eight years have passed on Earth. The Plague has been release in several cities all over the world with no antidote and a madman at the helm of it all.
The followers of Elyon now live in the seven forests and fight to protect these holy sites from the Horde. During this time Thomas of Hunter has been training the "Forest Gaurd" ans has become the supreme commander. He is loved by his people, and feared the Horde.
As the story unfolds Ted Dekker unveils further mystery and intrigue which keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

Black - by Ted Dekker

“By day's end, three million people will be carriers of the deadliest virus in history. There is no vaccine. There is no anti-virus. The world's only hope is Thomas Hunter, and he has already been killed. Twice. Enter an adrenaline-laced epic where dreams and reality collide - and the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance of one man's choices.”

Ted Dekker’s Black is a rollercoaster ride of action, adventure, intrigue and downright nastiness. The book follows the life of Thomas Hunter, an ordinary, down on his luck man. Due to a failed “import opportunity” he becomes the target of hit. While escaping from his would be killers, he suffers a head trauma and wakes up in an alternate reality. At first this new reality appears to be a world where no one gets sick or hurts and there is no sadness. There is want for nothing and the people are guided by white bat-like creatures called “Roush,” whom appear somewhat angelic and follow their creator named “Elyon.”

However, Thomas soon realizes that a deadly virus is soon to be released that threatens all he cares about. The pace quickens as both worlds are intertwined in the actions of one man, Thomas Hunter.
