Guest review of Lunatic and Elyon by Ted Dekker

Synopsis of Lunatic:

Fight with the horde... or die with love. Separated by time and space, our heroes finally return home. But five years have passed and they find a nightmarishly changed world.

Synopsis of the book:

Elyon's lakes have turned blood red. Is it a curse... or the cure? Dive deep into this epic conclusion to the Lost Novels—if you dare!


Review of books by my son, a high school student and big Dekker fan:

Jonis, Silve, Darsal return to their world after their journey through the histories. They find out everything is different from when they left. Years have lapsed and the Horde has taken over Middle Forest. All remaining lakes have turned blood red following the Drowning.

These two books are fascinating allegories of the redemption story but the tale is told in Dekker's fantastical style of writing. The stories are page-turning and draw you into another world. Shaeda was a strange character who drove the story and represented temptation to the characters who returned. This entire series really makes you think. People who love fantasy will be drawn to these books. Christians who love to read will be blessed by the message embedded in the story. These two book wrap up the series and are satisfying reads.
