Some say that the world hangs in the balance of every choice we make. Now, the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance of the choices of one man, an unlikely hero who may not survive the next twenty-four hours. The adrenaline-laced trilogy that began with Black and Red now races to an unbelievable conclusion with White. In White, Thomas Hunter struggles to stave off a war and a virus that are simultaneously ravaging two worlds' populations. Meanwhile, he must also contend with the ramifications of an incredible love story that unfolds with consequences that are far more crushing than anyone could ever imagine.… (more)

A good ending to a good story. ( )

This book has a twisting plot that draws you in for more. It's emotionally intense and griping from the beginning, but you should start at the beginning of the series. 5Q4P The cover is awesome and I'd recommend this book for high school students and adults. I chose to read this book because I absolutely love this author. AriannaF

I wasn't as disappointed in this book as I was "Red," but "White," in the same way, didn't meet my expectations compared to "Black." I was satisfied with the ending and I'm not quite sure why "Green" has been written. I guess I'll read it to find out.

Thomas Hunter's life is never easy these days. The threat of the unleashed virus weighs heavily on Earth. A terrorist, who unleashed the viral weapon and holds the key to the antidote-which can be exchanged for the world's nuclear power, is on the hunt to kill Thomas. Being killed is the least of Thomas' worries as he furiously attempts to retrieve the antidote before it's too late. Though Earth is being ravaged by a virus, Thomas has little control over when he sleeps and the events that occur in them. While trying to unite the Forest people and fend off the Horde, Thomas' heart has fallen for a woman. However, this is no ordinary woman. The consequences of their love with surely bring war and death to the two as well as Thomas' people.

Ted Dekker's third installment does not disappoint. The development of the characters brings to light vaious emotional traits: love, sacrifice, pain, and strength. The reader finds that there are characters worth rooting for while there are others to loath. The quick-paced writing found in the previous two novels, is not lost in the third. The Circle series is a continuous thrill ride. The reader is engulfed by Dekker's writing style as his depictions surround the reader to feel and see as the characters feel and see. A fantastical, thrill of a ride to be taken by any reader willing. I highly recommend this book. ( )

This review is being written four years after the fact. My father recommended this series, otherwise I would never have picked it up. I enjoyed it at the time, though a lot of stuff bugged me; namely, that the "real world" plot was pretty unbelievable, and the "alternate world" plot got fairly heavy-handed with Christian allegory.

That said, four years later, a lot of the imagery from this series has stuck with me. If I thought it a bit hokey back then, now I'd say it's more enjoyable in hindsight, and maybe more powerful. I have a feeling that if I reread it today, it would disappoint; but I can see myself recommending it to my kids when they reach their teens. ( )
