"The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia's northern tip in 1963, is harrowing. But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away. There, my mind was torn in two by the gods of the earth. There, one life ended so another could begin.

Some will say I was a fool for making the choices I made. But they would have done the same. They, too, would have embraced death if they knew what I knew, and saw through my eyes.
My name is Julian and this is my story. But more, it is the story of my son who was born to change the world."

Ted Dekker has been one of my favorite authors for almost ten years. I own almost every single one of his books. I love his imagination, the way he brings such incredible situations to life, how he can get me to see every detail, every color vividly in my mind. There hasn't been a single book by Mr. Dekker that I have not loved, but to be honest, none have touched me as deeply as the Circle series, until now. Outlaw was the most captivating story I've read this year, and it has shaken the way I view my world.
