Author: Ted Dekker
"The mind-bending pace of Black accelerates in Red, Book Two of Ted Dekker's epic Circle Series. Less than a month ago, Thomas was a failed writer selling coffee at the Java Hut in Denver. Now he finds himself on a desperate quest to rescue two worlds from collapse. In one world, he's a battle-scarred general commanding and 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."
-Summary from the back of Red
Characters: Very good! This book is full of amazing characters, every bit as epic as those in Black. There are plenty of twists about who each character is, with the revelation of a few faces (or names anyway) that I never expected. There is, however, one think that I dislike about the cast of characters: the very regrettable absence of Roush, Gabil in particular.
Location: Very good! The locations are as incredible as they were in Black, with clear description and imagery.
Plot: Excellent! If you thought that Black was exciting, you’ll love Red! With a new twist or turn at every corner, this book will keep you turning the pages until you come to the cliffhanger ending. However, it is also very sad at the end, for reasons I won’t mention here for fear of spoiling the book.
Other: You want an epic tale with amazing characters, an incredible double plot, and more action than you could imagine in a single book? Read Red.
Overall Rating: 4/5
