Red by Ted Dekker

" We have stepped off the cliff and are falling into Madness."
The mind-bending pace of Black accelerates in Red, Book Two of Ted Dekker's groundbreaking Circle trilogy. Less than a month ago, Thomas Hunter was a failed writer selling coffee at the Java Hut in Denver. Now he finds himself in the desperate quest to rescue two worlds from collapse. In one world, he's a battle-scarred general commanding an army of primitive warriors. In the other, he's racing to outwit sadistic terrorists intent on creating global chaos through an unstoppable virus.
Two worlds on the brink of destruction. One unthinkable solution.
Enter an adrenaline-laced epic where dreams and reality collide. Nothing is as it seems, as Black turns to Red.
This second installment was just as brilliant as the first one, Black. It all started even before the story began with this little message from the publishers...
Thomas Hunter's story begins in Black, Book One of The Circle Trilogy. If you've yet to read Black, I strongly encourage you to start there. Red is far richer once you've fully experienced Thomas's initial journey into two realities. There are numerous plot twists that deserve grounding before you plunge into the pages ahead.
Once you've read Black, you're ready to step into Red. But be forewarned, nothing will prepare you - or Thomas - for what awaits him in this second book of epic trilogy."
Does that not give you chills? Well, if you have read, Black, it will!! The second book was just as thrilling and jaw dropping. As the Publisher mentioned, there are some new plot twists, that I did not see coming and so very, very cool! This is such a hard book to review without giving away too much. So I won't really say much. If you are a fan of fast paced, edge of your seat, action, adventure? You will love this series. Once again there is the whole 'God' element to this book. And once again I found myself a little uncomfortable with certain aspects, but I understand where it is coming from and it would not be the story it is without them. I wholeheartedly recommend this book and very pumped for book 3, White.
Rating: 5 stars!
