About the book:

At Last . . . The Circle Reborn

The story of how Thomas Hunter first entered the Black Forest and forever changed our history began at a time when armies were gathered for a final battle in the valley of Migdon. Green is a story of love, betrayal, and sweeping reversals set within the apocalypse. It is the beginning: the truth behind a saga that has captured the imagination of more than a million readers with the Books of History Chronicles.

But even more, Green brings full meaning to the Circle Series as a whole, reading as both prequel to Black and sequel to White, completing a full circle. This is Book Zero, the Circle Reborn, both the beginning and the end. The preferred starting point for new readers . . . and the perfect climax for the countless fans who’ve experienced Black, Red, and White.

My Review:

Ted Dekker is one of the BEST thriller fiction writers out there. Many of his books have even been turned into films and Manga comic books.
Green is the 1st, or the 4th or better yet, number zero in his circle series. It might be  a bit confusing on the surface,  but i promise, it’s not!
It’s the start (or end) to a great story, that’s worth curling up for and reading. As always Ted wrote an extremely engaging and fast pace story which you will not want to put down. Green doesn’t come off as an afterthought, or just a way to boost sales. It really feels like a legitimate part of the series that has been well thought out.  I am really glad Ted Dekker was finally able to finish telling this story!
Some of the final scenes were a little too contrived and convenient for my taste, but it also worked out well in the end. I obviously can’t give out the exact ending, but I think longtime readers of this series are going to be satisfied.

in accordance with new rules by the FTC, this is my disclaimer to let you know i received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review. I have not been compensated in any way other than with the review product itself.
