Ted Dekker is a master of his craft. He's a phenomenal story teller and has a way of drawing you into his books. This series is my first look into the writing of Ted Dekker and I have to say that I enjoy it very much. This is the second book in the AD Series.
For those of you that read my blog quite often you know that I look at a few different things. I look at plot, character development and readability. Lets take a look into those things.
The plot of this book is very well written. You can tell that there was a lot of thought given to how the stories fit together and flow with one another. Sometimes when there is a series involved an author has trouble with trying to make the plot too complex so that they can fill the books out. That isn't the case here with Mr. Dekker. He does a magnificent job.
The character development is very well done. The characters aren't over developed in any way. What I mean by that is that sometimes the author tries to give you way too much information on the character and half of it ends up being irrelevant to the story. Not so in this book. The characters slot in well to the plot and the overall makeup of the story.
The readability of this book is very good. It has great pacing and it's easy to read. Someone who is a faster reader could sit down and knock this book out in half a day. It's not an intimidating read and it flows very well. I like the writing style very much.
I think this book would make an excellent gift for the person in your life that enjoys reading and reading series books. You should consider this book for your holiday shopping needs. It can be picked up online or in stores and it's very easy to spot with the beautiful red cover that it has.
Disclaimer: I know this review is vague. I strive very hard not to give away any of the plot of the book because I hate when that happens. I just try to present a well written book and suggest it to my readers. This is a well written and well done book.
