Green, the last book in Ted’s best-selling Circle Series, just received the 2010 Inspy Award for Best Speculative Fiction.
Here’s what the Inspy selection committee said about the book:
“Green was an excellent addition to the short list, with lots of emotion, lots of plot, and deep characters.¬†The allegory is strong throughout, with the juxtaposition of past/present and far future showing the importance and far-reaching consequences of the characters lives. The brilliance of Green is the fact that it is both the beginning and the end of the series. While discussions of faith in literature are not new, Dekker created a different way to start/finish a series.¬†Who else has done that with a series?¬†He did something completely unexpected with the ending of his book…”
Congratulations to Ted for a well-deserved award!
