Publisher's Summary

When a stranger named Marsuvees Black appears in Paradise, he brings with him a message of hope and love. Or is it death and hate? Perhaps neither - perhaps both. He seems to know too much about the town's many unspoken secrets, and he himself holds the greatest secret of them all. As black clouds and sandstorms envelop the town, it becomes almost impossible to get in or out. It quicky becomes apparent that Paradise is being isolated for a reason. But why?

Probably great with another narrator.

I am a Ted Dekker fan and have been for some time, trying to listen to this book has been trying & even painful at times. I find very rarely find difficulty in listening to most audio books, but the narrator was just not a good choice for this story in my opinion. His voice held nothing in the way of drama, suspense or the sinister nature of what I felt the main character should be. He did an excellent job in the roles of the children, but sadly I just couldn't find his reading and portrayal of the other characters believable or likeable. He would probably be great for another type of book or series but he didn't do it for me here.

Hated everything

I listened to black, red, white, green first and loved those. I had to force myself to finish this one. Didnt care for the voice acting and the story just didn't catch my attention. I expected more. On to the next one.

another great book

I have listened to 8 Ted Dekker books now and again I am impressed. Ted demonstrates his brilliant writing ability, spiritual grounding and hid amazing storytelling techniques. Can't wait for the second in the trilogy but it's a shame I have to look elsewhere for it...
