WINNER: Mom's Choice Awards, Gold Medal - Fantasy & Science Fiction
Aberthol Nauile doesn't know that he beheld the creation of the world, ravaged by a war of the gods, and began anew; or that he led legions in a war that had raged since the dawn of time; or that he once rode on a dragon with his father. All he knows is that he awoke in a coffin deep within a tomb, hearing voices in his head, and now the whole world thinks he is their savior.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
Q: What made you want to write epic fantasy novels?
A: I grew up on this stuff: J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen R. Donaldson, Roger Zelazny... I could go on and on, but it was this kind of epic fantasy with dragons, and magic and fantastical worlds that filled my imagination as a kid. So the question is more like how could I not write an epic fantasy?
Q: Do you consider Shadow Swarm a Sword & Sorcery type epic?
A: There are certainly elements of sword and sorcery in the novel. With big sweeping battles and magic I poured all that I love into this story. I also worked to create a world with a rich history, political machinations and fantastical creatures of every kind. Again, this is the stuff I love. Shadow Swarm is also clean without the language and sex found in many books today, so it can be a great epic fantasy book for teens to read as well.

My whole life, I’ve loved hearing and reading stories, and creating worlds of my own. As a child, I spent countless hours drawing crazy contraptions on paper, or building vast fortresses in a sand pile behind my garage. There was hardly a time I wasn’t off on some adventure in my mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. So it’s no big surprise I took all that daydreaming, all that longing to really see the wonder of creation around me, and started pouring it into discovering hidden universes in my own mind.
For quite a few years I tried my hand at writing, mostly working on one, massive fantasy novel, but it wasn’t until I had kids and they became voracious readers that I found my passion. There’s no greater audience than a child. I’d rather have a simple review from a kid that says, “Awesome book!” than a five-star review in the New York Times. Of course, if anyone at the Times wants to try to prove me wrong, I’d be willing to let you.

Ted Dekker’s bestselling and most beloved series—together in one volume.
It's the story of a man named Thomas Hunter, an unlikely hero who finds himself pulled between two worlds. In our reality, he works in a coffee house. In the other, he becomes a battle-scarred general leading a band of followers known as the Circle. Every time he falls asleep in one reality, he wakes in the other. The fate of both worlds now rests on his ability to shift realities through his dreams—and somehow, find a way to change history.
Four novels. Two Worlds. One Story.
Praise for the Circle series:
“Put simply: it’s a brilliant, dangerous idea. And we need more dangerous ideas . . . Dekker’s trilogy is a mythical epic, with a vast, predetermined plot and a scope of staggering proportions . . . Black is one of those books that will make you thankful that you know how to read. If you love a good story, and don’t mind suspending a little healthy disbelief, Black will keep you utterly enthralled from beginning to . . . well, cliffhanger. Red can’t get here fast enough.” —FuseMagazine.net
“As a producer of movies filled with incredible worlds and heroic characters, I have high standards for the fiction I read. Ted Dekker’s novels deliver big with mind-blowing, plot-twisting page-turners. Fair warning—this trilogy will draw you in at a breakneck pace and never let up. Cancel all plans before you start because you won’t be able to stop once you enter Black.” —RALPH WINTER, Producer—X-Men, X2: X-Men United, Planet of the Apes, Executive Producer—StarTrek V: Final Frontier
“Black has to be the read of the year! A powerful, thought-provoking, edge-of-your-seat thriller of epic proportions that offers great depth and insight into the forces around us.” —JOE GOODMAN, film producer, Namesake Entertainment
