FEARLESS -- Robin Parrish

Welcome readers. Somehow, my blog days keep falling on tour dates. Since the LGG participates in these tours, well, someone's got to post. Nothing controversial this time. : )

First, let me preface this by stating, I have not finished reading this book. I received the book just last week (for a different blog tour, mind you) and have begun reading, but am not far enough into it to comment much. So far, I can tell you I'm hooked and anxious to finish reading.

For probably the best review I've seen so far, check out: http://spoiledfortheordinary.blogspot.com/
or any of the other CFBA reviewer sites on the blogroll at the bottom right of this page.

So, tune back in a few weeks for my official review, AFTER you've checked out the CFBA blog post below.

This week, the

Robin Parrish


Robin Parrish had two great ambitions in his life: to have a family, and to be a published novelist.

In March of 2005, he proposed to his future wife the same week he signed his first book contract.

Born Michael Robin Parrish on October 13, 1975, Robin's earliest writing efforts took place on a plastic, toy typewriter, and resulted in several "books" (most between 10 and 30 pages long) and even a few magazines.

By the age of thirteen, he had begun winning local writing awards and became a regular in his high school's literary magazine. In college, he garnered acclaim from his English professors and fellow students while maturing and honing his skills.

After college, he entered the writing profession through a "side door" -- the Internet. More than ten years he spent writing for various websites, including About.com, CMCentral.com, and his current project Infuze Magazine, which is a unique intersection between art and faith which he also conceived of and created.

One of his more "high concept" ideas for Infuze was to return to his love for storytelling and create a serialized tale that would play out every two weeks, telling a complete, compelling story over the course of nine months. That serialized story eventually came to the attention of several publishers, who saw it as a potential debut novel for Robin Parrish.

In 2005, Bethany House Publishers brought Robin full circle by contracting him for the rights to not only that first book, Relentless -- but two sequels. A trilogy, to unfold in the consecutive summers of 2006, 2007, and 2008. One massive tale -- of which that first, original story would form only the foundational first volume of the three -- spread across three books.

Robin is the Editor in Chief and creator of Infuze Magazine. He and his wife Karen reside in High Point, North Carolina. Karen works for High Point's First Wesleyan Church, where Robin and Karen are members and Small Group leaders.


Book Two of the Dominion Trilogy:

The world changed after that terrible day when the sky burned, and now every heart is gripped by fear...

Earthquakes, fire, disease, and floods pummel the earth, and its citizens watch in horror.

But in the darkness there is hope -- an anonymous but powerful hero whom the public dubs "Guardian." He is Grant Borrows, one of a chosen few who walk the earth with extraordinary powers. But while Grant enjoys this new life, signs of a dangerous ancient prophecy begin coming true, and those closest to Grant worry he may be hiding a terrible secret.

A search for answers brings Grant and his friends to London, where an extraordinary discovery awaits that will challenge everything they thought they knew. With a deadly new enemy dogging his steps, Grant realizes that the world's only hope may come from unraveling the truth about himself once and for all. But what he comes face-to-face with leaves even this most powerful of men shaken with fear.

Secrets will be revealed.

Friends will make the ultimate sacrifice.

And destiny will not be denied.

The story continues...

I wasn't that thrilled with the book, actually. Yes, Robin can write suspense. No doubts there. Maybe it's that the superhero thing falls flat for me, or perhaps because it had almost no reference to God or Christianity in any form. I don't know.

I like the battle between good and evil, but what good will come of it if the "good" guys have nothing beyond themselves to hold on to?

So obviously, I have mixed feelings about it.

If you want to read a better book, pick up Eric Wilson's A Shred of Truth. I can sing praises on that one 'til the cows come home.

Instant favorite. If you enjoy plot twists, loop hole, energy, suspense, mystery, and all around good reading, you will love Fearless. This book will grab you, pull you in and hold you there until Robin finishes the third book! From the minute I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Robin has done a ton of research and it really shows; his attention to detail is amazing.

Also, I want to clear the water on someting. This book isn't so much Christian fiction as it is a fiction book written by a Christian author. So, even if you aren't a Christian, you can enjoy and follow along with ease.

This is one book you will not regret having read. Oh, and you might want to read Relentless first. It is the first in the series.
