When a stranger named Marsuvees Black appears in Paradise, he brings with him a message of hope and love. Or is it death and hate? Perhaps neither - perhaps both. He seems to know too much about the town's many unspoken secrets, and he himself holds the greatest secret of them all. As black clouds and sandstorms envelop the town, it becomes almost impossible to get in or out. It quicky becomes apparent that Paradise is being isolated for a reason. But why?

There are some good elements of the struggle between good and evil as well as free will.
But was it worth the read? I really don't know.

This book was not near as good as BLINK or SAINT.
I am barely giving it 2 stars.
It was wierd.
It was creepy.
And well, different.
I almost think I liked THRE3 better...

In fact, if this were the first Ted Dekker book that I read, I don't think I would have been too eager to read more of Mr. Dekker's books...
