This week’s featured book for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is one I’m excited about. I’ve been a fan of Robin’s since he started and edited the late, lamented online magazine, Infuze. His first three books, the Dominion Trilogy, were fast-paced, thrilling and wildly imaginitive takes on super-hero fantasy. I called it a “new mythology for a post-modern generation.”
So I was pretty interested to see what he would do with more straight-on science fiction. Once again, he’s told a story that grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let me go until the last. Check out the book blurb and first chapter and I think you’ll be hooked, too. (FYI, I’ll probably do a little more detailed review in a couple of weeks or so, when this book is featured for the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy tour.)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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 with Bethany House Publishers. They contracted him for the rights to not only that first book, Relentless — but two sequels including Fearless and Merciless. A trilogy that unfolded in the consecutive summers of 2006, 2007, and 2008.
Robin Parrish is a journalist who’s written about pop culture for more than a decade. Currently he serves as Senior Editor at XZOOSIA.com, a community portal that fuses social networking with magazine-style features about entertainment and culture. He and his wife, Karen and son live in North Carolina.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Commander Christopher Burke and his crew are humanity’s greatest explorers. They’ve finished their mission on the red dirt of Mars and now they just want to get back to Earth. To see friends, family, and loved ones. To be home. But even with communication to ground control cut and a perilous landing, nothing could prepare the crew for what they discover when they step foot back on planet Earth.
It’s not a dream. It’s not a trick. Now Burke and his team have one mission:find out who or what is behind the disappearance of all mankind.
