In one world, a lethal virus threatens to destroy all life as scientists and governments scramble to find an antidote. In the other, a forbidden love could forever destroy the ragtag resistance known as The Circle.
Thomas can bridge both worlds, but he is quickly realizing that he may be able to save neither.
In the surprising conclusion of the Circle trilogy, Thomas must find a way to rewrite history as he navigates a whirlwind of emotions and events surrounding a pending apocalypse.
Life. Death. Love. Nothing is as it seems. Yet all will forever be transformed by the decisions of one man in the final hours of the Great Pursuit.
looking forward to reading the 4th book written a few year's later by Ted but following the same story line
The series is a must 'read'. Black, Red, and White takes the reader on two journeys. The reading is fantastic. The stories move quickly from one reality to another, or was it all just a dream?
This series is a must have for fiction readers, regardless of religious background. Well done.

I really enjoyed all three books, Black, Red and White. The author did a great job with suspense and clever solutions. I loved the creativity of the author, and the way this series makes you think. There are many aspects of the book that can be associated with different aspects of life. I loved this book and I would highly recommend it.

Ted Dekker has written a wonderful trilogy in these books. I started out feeling his writing was a little hokey, then found myself reeled in completely. After the first installment I couldn't help myself-- I downloaded the next two and swallowed them whole. A wonderful allegory and escape at the same time.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would, but I would also let them know that compared to the first two books, this one is disappointing. I hated the ending.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Good question, I never know just what I will be in the mood for when shopping for an Audible book, I like a little bit of everything.
What about Rob Lamont’s performance did you like?
He did great with bringing the Characters to life.
Do you think White needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It does need a follow up book, if for no other reason than to make this book into yet another dream sequence. They should not have let any of the other characters travel, sorry for the spoiler, but I had to say it.
Any additional comments?
I was harsh on this book, but it really isn't horrible, I just wanted it to end differently than what it did.

The Black Red White series was excellent with a gripping narrative style. That said, the final book was probably the weakest of the three. The romance scenes are very heavy handed and don't really ring true. Also some pivotal scenes were repeated word for word from an earlier scene. This may have been a deliberate text device used to show the veracity of the experience but it didn't work. The narrator was good but he seemed to change the pronunciation of some names. One character had three different names (Tilo, Teelah and Taylor). I am not sure if this was deliberate on the part of the author or a mistake on the part of the narrator. However these were minor aberrations in a wonderful adventure that made me want to dream.

If you enjoyed the first 2 books in the series, you will love book 3. I found the pace of book 3 to be faster than that of book 2. I couldn't find good stopping points! This series sold me on the Fantasy genre! Good job Ted Dekker! I found this book wrapped things up nicely and I'm not sure what book Green will add to the series. I'm still trying to decide if I need to get Green book 0. People who enjoy Christian Fantasy will enjoy this series.

I just finished reading this book and wow! From start to finish, from end to beginning, Ted Dekker continues to weave Thomas through successes and failures! On book 1 I was disappointed with the narrator, but he has improved 10 fold by book 3!
i was entangled in the deeply woven metaphors and stitching into reality! fantastic story telling and writing!
So glad to have re-visited this series. Read it years ago and so glad I listened to it. Was able to see things in a different light. Must check out.
Narrator is excellent. Spiritual realm realities powerful to consider. Enjoyed Black, Red, and White so far.
