Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee have agreed to collaborate on a new series entitled The Forbidden. The goal for the series is to blend Ted Dekker’s flair for thrills and grit with masterful prose, much like Tosca Lee has displayed in her published novels. Here’s a description of the books according to publisher Hachette Book Group:
Forbidden, the first novel in The Forbidden series, will release in September 2011 from Center Street (Hachette Book Group). Described by the authors as “a thriller for tomorrow”, the world as we know it is unrecognizable. Four hundred eighty years have passed since civilization’s brush with extinction. Perfect order reigns and humanity’s greatest threats have all been silenced under the rule of a totalitarian government. There is no disease, no malice, no hate, and no war. There is only peace until the day one man discovers the truth: Every single soul walking the earth is actually dead and the human heart has been stripped of all that makes it human. Now only he is alive and has the knowledge that can once again awaken humanity.
