I thouroughly enjoyed this book. I have read the Circle books (Black, Red, White, Green) twice. Black is filled with suspense mixed with sci-fi, fantasy, and Spiritual truths about God and how he LOVES us! You won't be able to put it down!
I am a little behind as I have just finished this book. It has been out for a few years. I was a little leary of reading this book because I read a previous book by Ted Dekker. "Three" Although it was great I hated the ending because I am a sucker for happy endings. But I gave in and purchased this book used. This book was easy reading but was filled with imagination and suspence. The world that Thomas visits when he sleeps is amazing. It is like what the Garden of Eden must really have been like in the beginning. The story he tells of talking with Elyon and the love and innocense because of evil not being unleashed yet blew me away. When evil did come I was actually sad. The book is unbelievable. Getting ready to start "Red".

Review 3 for Black - eBook
Date:March 17, 2011
It was awesome could not stop reading it. Now onto Red
This is the best book of the circle series. I found the story full of new earth spiritual principles. It was simplistic, and very inventive. The book seemed to be full of strength. Thomas seemed to face danger and near-death escapes. I liked how there is a parallel drawn between the bible and the themes on the other planet he goes to when he sleeps. Be careful though: This series contains some violence but so does real life. We do not live in a world where there isn't any! Just watch the news. It is a unique story. Plus, realistic in the theme of a virus threat in this country. I was intrigued by the nature of that possibility written into the waking life of Thomas Hunter, who becomes a heroic figure working to save the country from it.
