This book is good in terms of science-fiction. Yet, it would seem as if the characters on the forest world are so childlike compared to Thomas. He seems like a much more quick-minded fellow. It makes you appreciate our world and yet wonder about what God has in store for the overcomers on the new earth. Simplicity? Anyway, aside from some violence, anyone would come to appreciate Thomas's efforts to save the world from such a deadly virus, and also to teach the naive on the forest world how to fight and stand their ground.
Purchased this series for my wife, who couldn't put the books down. She absolutely loves Ted Dekker's writing, and I'm looking forward to getting the series started shortly. Shipping was incredibly quick, and the books arrived in perfect condition. Christianbook.com is by far, the best site to confidently purchase books/items, and know you will receive them within a few days.
