Purchase the print version of Ted Dekker's Green from Amazon!
The story of how Thomas Hunter first entered the Black Forest and forever changed our history began at a time when armies were gathered for a final battle in the valley of Migdon. Green is a story of love, betrayal, and sweeping reversals set within the apocalypse. It is the beginning: the truth behind a saga that has captured the imagination of more than a million readers with the Books of History Chronicles. But even more, Green brings full meaning to the Circle Series as a whole, as both prequel to Black and sequel to White, completing a full circle. This is Book Zero, the Circle Reborn, both the beginning and the end. The preferred starting point for new listeners - and the perfect climax for countless fans who've experienced Black, Red, and White.
- Focused on evil
I didn’t finish this. I found that this book had way too much focus on evil and went into it in great detail. Not just the nature of evil but it’s practice also. I don’t want to hear detailed descriptions of occult ceremonies ever, or the inner thoughts of those who worship demons.
Breathtaking story and unbelievably creative. Can't wait to go through the rest!!!
- Great series!
I love this series by Ted Dekker. This was my first introduction to his works, and I have to say, I was spell-bound and captivated through the whole series! Once I started Book 1 (I read Book 0 later) I had to buy every single book in the series. Dekker is an incredible writer, and each of these books is action packed and filled with lots of unexpected twists and turns that kept me hooked.
The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is that I felt like sometimes the story line was a little slow and drawn out in parts. But overall, the story lines are great, the characters are strong, and the narrating is excellent. Really enjoyed this series!

- An Open Circle?
I've been a big fan of Ted Dekker's writing. The Circle Trilogy is among my favorites. I must say, I was totally disappointed in the fourth installment. Not only was redemption missing, but it seemed to negate the redeeming qualities of the prior trilogy. The story seems more in line with Hinduism or some other Indian folk religion that intertwines with the idea of the circle of life (usually advocating some sort of reincarnation). The story felt as if it was forced into a time restraint or shoehorned into the original trilogy. The ending is completely lame. I think Dekker could have done better if he had taken out the time to put more thought into it. It leaves the plot with a big gaping whole.
There is a new narrator, he does a good job overall. Living up to Dekker's legacy, the story has a lot of action, adventure and suspense.
If you have read the trilogy and enjoyed it, I recommend dropping this one from your reading list, so the trilogy doesn't sour in your stomach.
