Lost Books Graphic Novels #04: Chaosby Ted Dekker
Synopses & Reviews
"Released simultaneously, these two books demonstrate the difficulty of converting prose novels into graphic fiction, especially when a complicated backstory is involved. Bestselling Christian writer Dekker wrote the YA Lost Books series to fill a gap in the chronology of his adult Circle trilogy, which chronicles a long struggle between the forces of darkness and light in our Earth and a fantastic parallel world. At the beginning of the series, four young people are given the mission of finding the seven missing Books of History to secure the continuity of reality. In Renegade, the hotheaded Bilios uses a forbidden book to transport himself to a small Colorado town, where a dark stranger convinces him that the people aren't real so that it's okay to kill them. In Chaos, young Johnis and Silvie are transported to Las Vegas, into the middle of a scheme by a monstrous Shataiki bat to unite the books and bring his mate into this world so they can spawn. The dynamic but uncredited artwork is good, but these adaptations are too plot dense to be satisfying. Readers may turn to Dekker's novels if they're intrigued by this combination of C.S. Lewis and Stephen King. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
New York Times best-selling author revisits the universe of his half-million selling Circle Series with the continuation of this YA series.
Chaos - Deep in the Romanian mountains lays a fortress, and deep within the fortress a chamber. And in the chamber, ruling the dead for over 2000 years, lives one Shataiki bat, straight from the bowels of the Black Forest. If he has his way, no child will be safe by morning. But there are four who stand in the way.
Renegade - Forfeiting what he once held dear, Billos enters a forbidden book and discovers a foreign reality: a place called Paradise, Colorado, where he's approached by the sinister Marsuvees Black. In this third installment, Billos is the renegade-and everyone knows that renegades must die.
A final quest and an ultimate betrayal.
Deep in the mountains of Romania stands a fortress, and deep within that fortress lies a chamber. In that chamber, ruling the dead for over two thousand years, lives one Shataiki bat straight from the bowels of the Black Forest. He seeks the final Books of History with which he will destroy the world.
But there are four who stand in the way.
The chosen are trapped in a new world of high technology and weapons of mass destruction. In the midst of chaos, they must find the last book before the Dark One can in this epic battle that crosses worlds, tests allegiances, and plays for keeps.
