Book review: The Circle Series

Fleeing assailants through deserted alleyways, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of a building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head . . . and his world goes black.

From the blackness comes an amazing reality of another world where evil is contained. A world where Thomas Hunter is in love with a beautiful woman.

But then he remembers the dream of being chased through an alleyway as he reaches to touch the blood on his head. Where does the dream end and reality begin?

Every time he falls asleep in one world, he awakes in the other. Yet in both, catastrophic disaster awaits him . . . may even be caused by him.

Some say the world hangs in the balance of every choice we make. Now the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance of one man’s choices.

Synopsis of Black, the first book of The Circle Series.

Ahh! You guys!

I just finished a book series, and you know that feeling that you get when everything just lines up and the story ends perfectly? Yeah, that’s how I’m feeling right now.

The book series is called The Circle Series by Ted Dekker. The first book, Black, was published in 2004, but I just found out about them from my good friend and got them from the library to try it out. The series consists of four books, Black, Red, White, and Green.

Y’all, this is an amazing series! It’s full of adventure spun with romance and thrills no one knows will happen. These books definitely kept me on my toes while reading them, and my mind was always on them when I wasn’t.

And you wanna know what is SO INCREDIBLY COOL about these books? Of course you do. Okay, sit down because I’m about to blow your pants off.

This series is a circle series. Which means that a) the ending lines up perfectly with the beginning to make a complete circle, and b) you can either begin reading the series with the first book: Black or the last book: Green and the story will make complete sense!

I know what you’re thinking.

This is absolutely crazy! How could anyone do that?

That is exactly how I felt about them which is what intrigued me to read them.

Y’all, I’m so glad I read them because they were SO GOOD! They not only had complex and amazing story lines, but they had a deep connection with the Bible and Christianity, which is one of my favorite types of things to read.

So I give this story 5/5 stars. I definitely recommend them for people who enjoy YA, fantasy, and thrillers. And who knows? Maybe you’ll come out of quarantine bubbling about The Circle Series too!

Anyway, thanks for reading, and comment below on if you’ve read this series or any other by Ted Dekker.

Love from the Library,
