Recommend: This series has completely grown on me! Definitely worth the read!
Okay, walking into book three, I was ready to dig into it. Thomas and Monique are running out of time to find a cure and save the world from the virus ready to kill the world. As they race against the clock, everything in the alternate reality has changed and the newly formed Circle is fighting for their survival. Thomas is placed with an impossible task with no apparent way out. Thomas must figure out how to save both worlds but will he be able to do it and make it through alive?
This book was really good. The allegory comes into full bloom in this book, detailing the origin of the early church. The characters are familiar underneath the trappings of the fantasy environment that Dekker has created while still maintaining a fresh feel.
The only negative I have with series at this point is that for some reason I can’t seem to get through these books quickly. They seem to take twice the normal amount of time for me to read. There is so much to keep track of that you just can’t read them quickly. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but since the school year is winding down, I’m pressed for time making it more difficult. I can say that it has definitely given me some serious things to consider. It brings a fresh light to the Gospels and the early church that is not to be missed!
