Black: The Birth of Evil (Circle Series #1) by Ted Dekker

An Adrenaline-Laced Epic Where Dreams and Reality Collide.

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.

To say I loved this book is a huge understatement. I devoured the whole series! The suspense and intrigue flow flawlessly throughout the entire book and continue in each book of the series (Red, White, and Green). the story begins with Thomas falling asleep in our world and waking in another. Thomas begins to switch between worlds. In his dream world, Thomas must fight against the growing darkness that wants to devour him. In our world, Thomas use the knowledge he gained from his other world to stop the release of a deadly virus. The lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur and Thomas must decide which world is true. Dekker's style of writing is amazing and unlike any other author I've read. In addition to this series, I loved how Dekker intertwined the Paradise series and the Lost Books of History series, as well as minor relations in Skin and House, with this Circle series. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick-paced, keep-you-up-all-night-reading, suspenseful book.

This book is an awesome book of action and adventure.Great characters, great plot, great symbols. I love seeing how the symbols are like the real world. I also like how it shows the truth about how good will always win the war, but not always the battle. This book is more real than any other book I've ever read.

This book is soo great! It has action, romance, and is a thriller. Similar to the Narnia series in showing biblical scenes in a different world, but I loved it much more because of its connection to our world, and shows how frightening and powerful sin can be. First chapter was a bit confusing to me at first, but moving on I quickly was engulfed in this novel and joined the Circle!

This trilogy, which begins with Black, is ...just sooo amazing!!! And I know that's such a cheesy generic review, but I really don't know how else to describe it! It not only keeps you reading at a breakneck pace, saturated with intense themes, mind-boggling premises, and clever twists, it will keep you guessing the whole way through. This book is not only a superb piece of fiction, I can honestly say it's changed my life like no other story has. It's that powerful. And the other amazing thing about these books is people from so many different background and ages love them, even if they began skeptical. Men, women, teens, kids, even some older people. This trilogy has mass appeal, and could very well be the next big thing, like Lord of the Rings, Matrix, or Bourne movies. Bound to go down as a classic. Read. These. Books.

I really like the fact that Ted Dekker can twist reality with his writing. He creates two worlds that are so intricate that you can't tell which is real. It really sucks you into the world and mind of Dekker. Its full of twists and turns and unexpected events. I reccomend this book for anyone who likes action and a very enexpected plot.

OK, so I'll be honest. It took me 8 or 9 chapters to get into the book. I had to get over some OCD issues of mine. There was a part in the book that had a geographically incorrect location in the streets of Denver, CO. Being from Denver and knowing the streets very well, it was an annoying mistake that could have been avoided by looking at a basic map of Denver. I was overly critical of the error and luckily I did not quit reading like I did with the Hunger Games when she put her boots on and then her pants. That was a deal breaker for me. Against my eye twitching a little at first, I stuck it out and it was fantastic! Like I said, it took me 8 or so chapters to get into it but once I was in, I was completely hooked and can't wait to read the next one.
