I've waited far too long to review these two books, the simultaneously-released first half of a companion series to the Circle Trilogy. They're fantastic.
Chosen: It feels great returning to the forests of Ted Dekker's world. The mysteriously named Johnis, a teenage boy who aspires to be a part of the Forest Guard, finds himself on a quest. There are seven missing books of history, and he, Darsal, Billos, and Silvie must rescue them. Oh, yeah, and the demonic Shataiki bats have returned and are wreaking havoc.
Infidel: Johnis's mother is missing, and he may have found a clue to freeing her. But to do so will put him, his quest, and the lives of many others in jeopardy. Wait for the twist. You're gonna love it. Some things will start to feel a bit... familiar.
These are the sort of books made for racing through quickly. Good characters, good story, and pulse-pounding action. Books 3 and 4, Renegade and Chaos, will be released on May 6.
Dive deep. Again.
