If you like Ted Dekker's Circle series, you will like the Lost series, at least the first four books. They compliment the universe quite nicely. However, I strongly advise skipping the last two books and reading how they end elsewhere. If you like vampires and long, drawn out seduction, then the last two books are for you. However, if you're a fan of Dekker and the Circle series, I strongly urge you to not bother with the last two books, or you may find yourself liking Dekker and the Circle series less. Without a doubt, the last two books are among the worst Dekker has ever written. They were co-authored with Kaci Hill, so maybe she's to blame rather than Dekker. That is until I read Immanuel's Veins. Gag me! Unfortunately the Lost Books series suffers as a whole because of the last two books. I'd rate the first four books with a 4/5 star, the last two with a one.

Format: Paperback
You will love the 1st 4 books of this series. I bought these for my 12-year old son, but pre-read them because Ted Dekker material can be too adult for a pre- or early teen. The 1st 4 were awesome, and my son is currently gobbling them up. However, I won't be giving him the last two to read, which I forced myself to finish hoping for some sort of satisfying wrap-up. Didn't get it. Kaci Hill co-authored the last two, and I found the writing to be choppy and hard to follow, but mostly just depressing and dark, and too violent for a 12 year old. (Bodies bloody and torn from repeated torture? Ick. Too much of that.) Even her moments of redemption seemed forced and cheerless. That said, I think the 1st 4 in the series can stand up on their own, just skip the last 2. Or read them, but without super high expectations. Maybe they would make more sense if I had read the "Circle" series which I understand is the larger, wraparound story. And which I am eagerly buying right now. (-:

The first four books in the series are pretty good and are typical Ted Dekker, which I like. The last two were co-authored with Kaci Hill, who apparently likes toture and all around weirdness. The last two books are decent, just not as good as the first two. That being said, the books are your typical paperback books.

An exciting series that delves deep into story of good versus evil, while simultaneously mirroring the sweet story of God's love and sacrifice for humanity. Easy to read and holds the reader's attention throughout the entire series. These books are highly recommended for young adults looking not only for an adventure story, but also a story that will challenge and explore their own faith and beliefs!

Fantastic books that fit perfectly alongside the circle series. Adds so much depth to what has already been written while tying even more of Ted Dekker's works together. Great reading that draws you in to another world. Dive deep.

Loved this set! Dekker does a spectacular job at creating another lifetime and world. Loved his imagery and the character depth. He takes each character on a personal journey that is custom made to test their strengths and weaknesses. The reader is strengthened by the character's trials, and learns about what is important in life. Love the friendships and loyalties, as well as the development that occurs. A must read for all.

By A Green on April 27, 2015
Format: Paperback
This entire series was a major disappointment. I received the books for Christmas having asked for books by Ted Dekker. The entire "follow your heart" premise should have warned me, after all Jeremiah 17:9 tells us; "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (KJV) The series seems to begin well enough and has a few good parts, even the final book, specifically where Darsal is told to" love the horde" and is obedient to Elyon's voice. But, there is poor character development throughout the series and as the series goes along certain characters we had learned to care about simply disappear from the story. The transition/intro pages beginning each new book do a terrible job of bringing us up to speed about what has happened thus far and errors abound. Here are a couple examples: both the colors and titles of the lost books is different in different books, Johnis' birthmark is described as a circle in the early books and as a crescent in one of the last two, he also has flashbacks of things that happened to a different character and what happens when the covers of the lost books are touched with blood suddenly changes in the books. I was frustrated that things from Darsal's ten years on earth are never disclosed though they are alluded to often in the last books that certain things on other earth will remind her of something from Earth,but we are never told why. It was also a major frustration that we are never told the purpose of the seven lost books, which were all in possession of the "chosen ones" by the end of the fourth book and by the end of the series only one remained in their possession.Read more ›

This is a super book set. It is a Christian fiction series that is very in depth and action packed. The series plot is about four teenagers trying to find the lost books of history to save the past, present, and future. My 15 year old daughter compared their Biblical references (ie. story characters to Biblical characters) to that of The Chronicles of Narnia. She has read all of the books and truly enjoyed each of them. The books come in an attractive cardboard display/storage case. Its nice to be able to store them together in a case that will protect them from damage and loss. This set would make a great gift to anyone who enjoys reading fiction.
