“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.
