Publisher's Summary

Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real. Slowly he realizes that each reality dramatically impacts the other. In each world unspeakable evil is unleashed and millions of lives hang in the balance. The fate of two worlds depends on the actions of one man: Thomas Hunter.

Great Start

What did you love best about Black?

the story is engaging and exciting, the two worlds intersecting through this one man is a great idea that i hope gets explained in more detail in the other books.


What did you like best about this story?

i found myself getting enticed by the wonder of the "other world" the beauty and simplicity of this place where good and evil were as distinct as black and white. yet for me the magic didn't carry over into the current world. while in those parts i found myself longing for the next time the story moved back to the magical world.


What about Rob Lamont’s performance did you like?

the performance was solid. Rob's pace seemed to be spot on and the timing didn't seem at all forced. the only knock i would say if that some of the voices he uses for the characters are inconsistent at parts.


Any additional comments?

the fact that this book ends on a cliff hanger is somewhat annoying it is obvious that it is meant to be read as a series but some resolution would be nice at the end of the first act. overall I recommend giving it a listen. there are clear religious allegories. Dekker has obviously been inspired by the likes of Lewis in this respect but it is done well.

Not my cup of grape juice

I do not understand why Christians can not read Harry Potter due to the magical content, yet they can read C.S. Lewis and Ted Dekker.

Is it because they need the writing to be so bad that know one would ever believe it?
