"In the second part of his three-book Circle trilogy releasing this year, Dekker pens an absorbing thriller that convincingly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. In Black, readers met Thomas Hunter, whose dreams move him from a contemporary world to a strange other-world and back again. In this sequel, Hunter finds himself again torn between two realities after a 15-year respite from his dreams. Pitted against the New Allegiance, which has intentionally spread a deadly virus known as the Raison Strain that threatens to destroy the modern world, he launches a desperate search for the scientist who can provide the vaccine. In Hunter's other world, the savage Horde with its loathsome skin disease is on the brink of overpowering the Forest People, who hope for Elyon's deliverance. But the Forest People's 'Great Romance'-love of Elyon-has degenerated, and when the controversial, messiah-like Justin proposes a truce, things quickly disintegrate. Although there's gruesome violence (a torture scene paralleling the crucifixion and another torture scene involving a needle), Dekker steers clear of sexual situations and profanity. His writing has improved tremendously in a short period. The Christian symbolism woven into the story will delight readers of faith, and the intriguing plot will interest general fantasy readers."

Never before has an entire trilogy been released in less than a year. This second installment finds Thomas Hunter facing the devastating realization that he has helped unleash death in two parallel worlds. He must now discover how to defeat this evil--while trying to save his true love.
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 a 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
