Historical Context/ Information about the Author
Personal Feelings About the Book
I honestly really enjoyed this book. It opened my eyes to many things and I have learned so much from it, even tho it was a fiction book. It was quite long and took some time to read, but it was worth my time and effort. I would suggest this book to anyone that likes mystery and adventurously thrilling stories. It will certainly be time fulfilling and interesting!
Synopsis
This is an absorbing thriller that convincingly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. An adrenaline-laced epic where dreams and reality collide. 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.
Protagonist, Antagonist- Good vs. Evil
Conflict- One man trying to decipher between fantasy and reality.
Theme- The world hangs in the balance of every choice we make.
Setting- A Fantasy-like forest, U.S, and Bangkok
Characters- Thomas Hunter (main), (sister) Kara, Monique, Rachelle (the girl in which he falls in love with), and Elyon (basically a symbol of God)
Plot Diagram
“Some would say the Creator is a lamb. Some would say he's a lion. Some would say both. The fact is, he is neither a lamb nor a lion. These are fiction. Metaphors. Yet the Creator is both a lamb and a lion. These are both truths.”
― Ted Dekker, Black: The Birth of Evil

“Adrenaline dulls reason; panic kills it.”
― Ted Dekker, Black: The Birth of Evil

“And to understand how love unfolds, you must understand how Elyon loves.”
― Ted Dekker, Black: The Birth of Evil

“The fact is, not to kill entire populations, but is able to infect entire regions of land and control the only cure.”
― Ted Dekker, Black: The Birth of Evil

“Not evil. Not any more evil than the colored trees are good.Evil and good reside in the heart, not in trees and water.”
― Ted Dekker, Black: The Birth of Evil
