The forest dwellers are trying to save and protect their lives and homes from the Horde.  Their armies are dwindling so younger recruits are being tested and trained.  Our of the hundreds come four teenagers who are the Chosen ones, destined for find The Lost Books and save their people.

I'm a bit confused as to where in the timeline these books take place.  I thought they came in after White in the Circle series, but Thomas is still with Rachelle in this series and mentions how he hasn't dreamed in 13 years so I think these actually might take place between Red and White.

Anyhoo...I didn't like these quite as much as the Circle series, but it was still enjoyable.  It did seemed kind of disjointed.  Johnis going after his mother in the second book and then never seeing her again felt out of place as well as Billos's journey through the books in Renegade.  Then Chaos was chaotic, Dekker trying to wrap up the story that was started in the first book, but kind of skipped over the next two books.

The books didn't flow like The Circle series, but they did add to the whole mythology of the entire series.  If there were more, I'd read them!
