Elyon by Ted Dekker and Kaci Hill

This is the last book in The Lost Books, the young adult/teen series. I'm looking forward to reading Green in the overall series to bring it all full circle. If you haven't read any of the books by Ted Dekker, I recommend you start with Black. He says you can start anywhere in the series. For an entire listing of all the books in the larger series Books of History Chronicles, see the previous post (Lunatic). Elyon does complete this series, but there are questions left unanswered... This book (actually the whole series) is not something I would have read ten years ago, but after reading Black the first book written in the Books of History Chronicles, I wanted to see where the story went - it sure has been a ride.

The Lost Books
Book 1 – Chosen
Book 2 – Infidel
Book 3 – Renegade
Book 4 – Chaos
Book 5 – Lunatic
Book 6 – Elyon

Back of book says:

Elyon’s Lakes have turned blood red. Is it a curse… or the cure?

Shaeda has one blue eye and one purple eye. No one fully knows her story, but her mere gaze eats away at the core of one’s being. In his quest for power, Johnis now finds himself in her intoxicating grip.

Assumed identities, a magic amulet, control of the fearsome Shataiki bats, and a troubling alliance with the Dark Priest all converge against the three remaining chosen.

Only Elyon knows what will happen when the forces of ultimate good and evil clash in their final battle. Dive deep with them in this epic conclusion to the Lost Novels – if you dare!
