Author: Ted Dekker
Characters: Fairly good. The characters are just as alive and vibrant as in Chosen, but certain characters (otherwise known as Johnis) made so many mistakes that I had a strong desire to yell at them for a half hour or more.
Location: Very good. There was just the right amount of description, and it was very clear!
Plot: Very good. The plot is intense and action-packed, with so much mystery, betrayal, and subplot that you can’t put the book down!
Other: Unlike some authors, Ted Dekker does a very good job of making sure that his books fit together and don’t contradict each other, a fact I first noticed in this series when a “flashback” scene from Red was in this book. As this series and the Circle Series continue, I noticed it more and more.
