This book was not as good as the first book; however, it is a must read to finish the series. It had enough interesting plot twists and turns that I'm looking forward to the next book in the sequel. Ted Dekker has a unique imagination which is shown in his books. Outstanding author

Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

Interesting and intriguing read. Ted Dekker has a unique ability to write in such a way that the reader is always left wondering what if ... And you keep reading to see if you can find out what if. Definitely a good read and well worth the time to read the series.

After an eventful first week on the job, Game Warden Jadyn St. James is happy the small bayou town of Mudbug, Louisiana, seems to have fallen back into its normal routine. But when FBI agent Raissa Bordeaux is kidnapped, Jadyn is certain the short-lived peace has come to an abrupt end. Statistics don’t lie, and Jadyn knows that the longer Raissa remains missing, the less likely she’ll be found alive. Sheriff Colt Bertrand knows the FBI won’t let him participate in their investigation, but is certain the federal agents aren’t as qualified as he is to locate someone missing in the swamps surrounding Mudbug.

Well, its rare that Book 2 is better than the first book; however, Nora Roberta did exactly that. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this book. Outstanding read. Ms Roberts' books are well written, interesting and will keep your attention throughout. The unique situations in this book make it one you simply can't put down. The only problem I have with this series is that it takes almost a year for the next book to come out. I wish it was only a little while, but I have to say, Thank you for a great read!
