Book Review: 'White: The Great Pursuit'
I've finally reached the end of Ted Dekker's The Circle trilogy with the last book in the series entitled White: The Great Pursuit. I have previously reviewed the first two books, Black and Red, both of which are gripping page-turners which mix fantasy, action, and thriller along with deep themes of redemption. White is no different. Thomas Hunter has only days left if he is going to survive two realities. The future of these two worlds hinges on Hunter's ability to be able to shift between the two realities through his dreams. I won't say much about this book in case you haven't yet read the first two except to say that, if you have, you won't want to miss this final instalment. If you haven't, then you must start now! Overall, the trilogy has been deeply satisfying to read. From the Cover In this final installment of Ted Dekker's groundbreaking Circle trilogy, Thomas Hunter has only days to survive two separate realms of danger, deceit, and destruction. The fate of the both worlds now rests on his unique ability to shift realities through his dreams, the charge given to a small ragtag group known as The Circle, and the forbidden love of a most unlikely woman. Enter the great pursuit, where Thomas and a small band of followers must decide quickly who they can trust-both with their own lives and the fate of millions. Dreams and reality quickly bleed into each other as time runs out. And neither the terror of Black nor the treachery of Red can prepare Thomas for the forces aligned against The Circle in White.
