Live Like a King

Archive for July 2007

This is the last day of the blog tour for Robin Parrish’s book, Fearless. Honestly, I was apprehensive about reading it because Robin has been compared to Ted Dekker. Well, flame me if you will, but I do not like Ted Dekker that much. He is a talented writer, but his stories just drive me nuts! LOL I HATED the ending for Three. Just hated it. Threw the book across the room hated it.

Not having read the first book in The Dominion trilogy, I had no idea what Mr. Parrish’s style would be. I am pleased to say that he is NOT like Ted Dekker, at least not in the way that I don’t like Ted Dekker. Clear as mud?? His ending did not frustrate me (but I was sad).

Fearless kept me on the end of the seat. Maybe is should have been called Breathless because that’s how I felt at the end of the story. Even though I did not read the first book in the trilogy (which I will endeavor to do asap!), I was able to follow the story. A few things were lost on me. I still don’t understand what “phasing” is. I assume that your whole personality is transferred to another body.

Anyway, here is a summary. Grant Borrows is the head of a super-hero league of sorts that uses the power it received from the Secretum (apparently and evil organization) for good. He is supposed to be their prophesied “Bringer” but he doesn’t know what he’s supposed to bring and fights against this “destiny.”

This book is not overtly Christian and therefore could reach a wider audience. It really has me thinking about the questions: Is anything inherently evil? If so, can you do good using things that are inherently evil?

Rebecca Luella Miller and Terri Main have good reviews on the book.
