Here’s some Context

Ok, so this book is about Thomas, a young man who suddenly starts having dreams. These dreams aren’t normal, however, because he’s dreaming of the future. In his dreams, he learns of a plot to kill off so much of the world’s population. In his dream, the plot worked, and the world he’s in is the result.

Granted, some of the things about this new world are pretty awesome, but not at the expense of billions of people, right?

And of course, you have the people in charge who thinks Thomas is completely off his rocker. But all of that makes for a VERY interesting story, and one that is REALLY hard to put down! So without further ado, here’s today’s Teaser from Ted Dekker’s Circle Series:


One hour became two and then three and then five. The forest flew by and her mind flew with it. With each passing mile, her eagerness to find Thomas increased. She now knew that He had indeed come this way – his stallion’s tracks, which she could read like her own palm, marked the mud at nearly every turn. He’d passed with Mikil. At least he had the sense to bring his best warrior.

She considered the potential danger ahead, but whatever danger her husband had submitted himself to wasn’t too much for her. The fate of worlds was at hand, and she had her role to play.

She reached the edge of the forest late in the afternoon and pulled up. The sky and the desert were both blood red this time of day. She’d left the village about two hours after Thomas and had followed his tracks up to this point. If she rode hard, she might reach the place where —

Her heart suddenly rose into her throat. The Horde camp was there, on the horizon, just visible against the red sand. They’d moved closer.

Much closer.

Did they plan to attack? She felt immobilized by panic. The camp seemed larger than she remembered. Nearly double in size. This could only be a gathering for war! Thomas had gone down to them?

She studied his tracks. They went straight on and turned down the canyon. There were two well-travelled paths down to the desert and Thomas had taken this one. He’d seen the Horde camp and continued. Then she would as well.

Rachelle prodded her horse.

The black stallion had taken only two steps when something struck her broadside.

She gasped and looked down. A stick protruded from her side. The shaft of an arrow. Pain screamed through her body.

Another arrow smacked into her shoulder, and a third into her thigh. She saw the Scabs near the tree line now, a party of five or six. They had bows! She didn’t know —

The next arrow hit Rachelle in the back. She kicked the horse into a startled gallop. To her left! She had to get away from them!


No, I wasn’t expecting this page to end on a cliffhanger, but Yes, I’m glad it did. Have you been sufficiently teased? I hope so, because this series of books is one of my very favorites, and I want you to love them as much as I do!

Let me know in the comments below what you think of today’s Teaser Tuesday, or come find me on Twitter and let me know there! Either way, I’d love to hear from you!
