Review Roundup for May 2009, Part 3

Wind Follower by Carole McDonnell - a solemn, mystical adventure, displaying the hero's journey to his own heart, and the heroine's discovery of her beloved's faith in the midst of impossible circumstances.

Beyond Corista by Robert Elmer - I recommend this series for anyone wanting sci-fi with distinct inspirational tones, and anyone looking for an epic space journey. Here you'll find danger, adventure and the saving of an entire society.

The Didymus Contingency by Jeremy Robinson - The time-travel action barely ever stops, and - if you'll believe me - I felt as if I knew Jesus better afterwards.

Raising the Past by Jeremy Robinson
- What if the idea of angels and demons really did come from opposing alien factions, warring for control of the Earth - one race said to be evil and another claiming to be good?

The Restorer by Sharon Hinck - a rich feast for the senses, earthy and inspiring. It left me with lots of questions, but of the kind that open a horizon of hope.

Light at the Edge of Darkness by Various Authors, edited by Cynthia MacKinnon
- laughter and tears and unexpected twists, beauty and hardship, farce and danger, evil and bravery, trials, faith, and the ultimate supremacy of God. Includes work by Frank Creed, Steve Rice, A.P. Fuchs, Adam & Andrea Graham, and many more.

Axiom-Man by A.P. Fuchs
- Axiom-man is a delightfully human superhero with true depth and spirituality.

Angel With A Ray Gun by Deborah Kinnard - A sci-fi writer...happens to be the pastor of a church. A church that doesn't know he writes bestsellers with a pen name.

The Shadow and Night by Chris Walley - This book will make you think. It will shoot you into the far distant future and make it believable. And it will take you all the way back to the roots of evil, and the triumph of good.

Nor Iron Bars A Cage by Caprice Hokstad
- richly-woven themes of sacrifice and humility, love and friendship, good versus evil, and the final victory of justice and hope, like a fairytale for grown-ups.

Time Masters - Book One: The Call, by Geralyn Beauchamp - A zany mix of cliches and genres, often hilarious, quite possibly the wildest journey of your life, and certainly anything but predictable.

Star Trek Movie Review - I've felt these new actors slot comfortably into their positions as the legendary spacefaring team, even as their journey to get to that place is now full of new challenges - faced by each person in their own typical manner.
