A great Inspirational Suspense short story ( )

This isn't a bad book, but I feel like it relies too much on the Circle series. You have to know a lot of background before getting into it, and it works best as a fill-in-the-gaps for people already reading the Circle series. Still, Ted Dekker's writing is good, and the story is decent as well. I didn't feel all that hooked into the final outcome, but I did enjoy the ending and sequel setup well enough. ( )

It was great to be reading again about the world of Thomas Hunter. Now I can't wait till the others come in. ( )

This was a really good book. I read it rather quickly. It starts out with Johnis who lives in a forest in a mythical world where there are only green forests and sandy deserts. Or so everyone thinks. In this desert lives the Horde, who are the enemies of these forest people. They are evil and want nothing more to make everyone in the forests like them, with scaly, stinking skin that hurts when they move. The forest people can be turned into these Horde by not bathing in certain lakes of water that keeps them from changing. The Horde hate water and stay away from it at all costs. Johnis is then joined by 3 other teens for an adventure that will change their world forever. I give this book 4 1/2 stars as it was a really good book. ( )
