Enter the Circle- an adrenaline-laced epic where dreams and reality collide. Where two worlds are on the brink of destruction with one unthinkable solution.

I've always thought of Ted Dekker as a writer whose genre wasn't really for me. His novels looked a little too dark and gruesome for my taste, but knowing that his books have a Christian message, I would always recommend him to people who like things a little on the darker side.
One of these people happened to be my brother who subsequently became a huge Dekker fan and began telling me all about the amazing novels he was reading, one of which was the Circle series. He assured me that this was one Dekker series I would love. Curious, but not totally convinced, I borrowed this comic book version from a friend, thinking it would give me a pretty good overview of what was in the books. Let me tell ya, my brother was right! The Circle is filled with astounding spiritual metaphors that are impossible to miss, not to mention action, suspense and romance that keeps you on your toes and flipping pages as fast as you can! I can't wait to get my hands on the actual novels!
The comic version is great if you're wanting to get a glimpse of the Circle or if you're a fan already and want to see the pages come to life. According to my brother, they leave a lot of stuff out in the comic version, including some violence. So this might be a good thing to get for young readers who might not be comfortable with the violence or who may get lost in a really deep storyline. They'll still benefit from the super rich spiritual metaphors without having to read the novels.
For those who like to dig deeper, I suggest delving into the novels as well. Which is totally what I plan to do ... see you in the Circle. ;)

I read the complete trilogy and loved it. I wasn't sure my 12 year old son would like it or if would be too intense for him; I bought him the graphic novel instead. He loved it and now my 10 year old daughter is reading it!

I am using these stories in my 8th grade literature class. The students are learning about symbolism, artists use of colors, and character profiles. This book is a perfect abridged addition of the three major books. Its portrait of good and evil brings about so many discussion. I hope that my students will read the original story line to grasp all the the author intends for us to read.
