This three part story is quite unusual, even for the genre it represents, which can best be described as a science fiction/fantasy/suspense allegory of the Christian faith. As such, the imagery and way in which the story unfolds is quite powerful, and often shocking.
I am glad I waited several weeks after reading this book to write the review as I have found that images have stuck with me, and become clearer as time passes. This in itself is high praise for a novel, as many are discarded mentally as soon as they are finished.
In this final chapter of the saga we find the lead character still switching back and forth from two different worlds through the gateway in his dreams. On modern day earth a terrorist has unleashed a biological weapon that has infected most of the world's population, and has the anti-dote in exchange for the nuclear power of the world's nations. In the alternate world, Hunter, is still leading a small band in an attempt from being slaughtered by the enemy. Without giving away too much, he finds himself with a most unusual and conflicting situation: he has fallen for the daughter of his enemy. The entire enemy is diseased, and has an actually quite revoltingly described skin condition, and this daughter is no different, so he must look past this and try and rescue her before he himself and his small group are wiped out.
Sound strange? You bet. There is nothing remotely normal about this story or the depictions and events. It sends emotionally conflicting messages continuously. This is why it works so well as an allegory.Read more ›
While Thomas Hunter's story is told, I'd love to see Ted do this again in the future. While I know it has to be exhausting, an in-depth storyline like this is rare in novels today. Great work on this trilogy! Highly recommended.
Thoman Hunter lives in a world where a lethal virus threatens to destroy humanity. Then he goes to sleep as we all do. When he wakes he is in a world where he is involved in the struggle for peace and religious freedom. When he goes to sleep in this world, he wakes back in the first one.
Each time he wakes he encounters a crisis until he is unsure just which world is real and which is dream. Or are they both real, or both dreams.
It's a fascinating concept, very well executed and highly recommended.
Dead in our world but alive in the other reality, Thomas and those that escaped to follow Justin now live in the desert. Those that have drowned in the red lakes and put their trust in Justin and Elyon are free from the disease that still afflicts the Scabs. They are still hated by the Horde and the Scabs continue to try to kill Thomas.
In our reality, the virus has been spread throughout the entire world. Using her brother's blood sample, Kara Hunter crosses over to the other reality where she shares minds with Mikil, Thomas's second in command.
Like in the other two books, White is filled with unexpected twists. The story is incredible and almost believable in an amazing way. After reading White, I have to say this is one of the best series I have ever read. Every time I thought I had it figured out there was a new twist and I was left guessing again. Make sure you have plenty of time before you start this book because yet again Ted Dekker has written a book you can't put down.
How does our Earth fare in the end from the Raison Strain? Is there any hope for an anti-virus? At what cost to the nations? What would be the ultimate cost in this battle against time and a madman, set on destroying all?
In this book, Ted Dekker weaves a tale of great sacrifice, a sacrifice for love. Thomas meets a young woman by the name of Chelise, the daughter of General Qurong of the Horde. This woman captures his heart, which should not happen between those of the Circle and the Horde. She is one that has forsaken the Great Romance of Elyon and believed a lie. Yet, Thomas is taken by her.
He does everything within his power to woo her, to cause her to see that she is loved by Elyon. Will he succeed? The cost of rescuing the General's daughter is his life, and if she follows after him, it will cost her life as well.
Dive Deep, and Live!
Again, this is a masterfully written book. In it we see a great example of 2nd Corinthians 5:11-19. It beautifully shows the ministry that we as Christians have been given, the ministry of reconciliation. We were reconciled to God by Christ Jesus, and we have been called to reconcile man to Christ. The Great Pursuit of Elyon is all about this.Read more ›
