From the Author
I've noticed that one thing readers of my books enjoy is trying to figure out where all of this is going. Is it an end-times story? Is it a superhero saga? What is it?
I could outright answer those questions -- because those questions do definitely have answers. But frankly, I'm glad readers are asking, talking, discussing the possibilities... And I hope to continue to give you questions to ask and possibilities to ponder right up until the last page of Book 3, by which time all of your questions will be answered. I want to challenge your preconceptions, open your mind to new kinds of storytelling, and defy every expectation you have.
It's time to buckle up, find a comfortable chair, and once again enter the world of Grant Borrows and his friends. And I'm giving you fair warning: read it slowly, because when you get to that last page...
Well, let's just say the wait until Book 3 is going to be a hard one.

As the story unfolds we see how the rest of the world reacts to them. Their nemesis is a corrupt policeman who sees them as a danger and manipulates others to his point of view. What he doesn't tell people is the truth of their origins and the good that they do and most importantly that he wants their power. The trilogy begins with Relentless and I suggest you read it first.. My next read is the third installment, Merciless, where I expect to have my questions answered.
Fearless is much better than Relentless. While it's still somewhat confusing, several things fall into place early on, which makes some of what happened in Relentless make more sense. I was pretty sure this series was of the `super hero' genre. Having that confirmed early on helped some of the previous book fit together a little bit better and set my expectations for this book. Previously, this was just a group of incredibly gifted people. Their gifts are better described as powers and that helps to put events into perspective.
Eventually, the group starts to split up, which allows for more opportunities for suspense. Instead of following a single story line, the plot began to separate and individual threads to be explored. The result was a desire to keep reading in order to pick up where certain threads left off. It made for a nicer read and kept me more interested in the overall plot.
Parrish also drew out some great themes. I'm looking forward to see how he continues to explore those in Merciless. I'm really enjoying the theme of deriving good from evil roots as well as the possibilities of free will conquering destiny. Some nice ideas to play with.
While some disagree, I really do think it was better than Relentless, especially the last 1/2-3/4. It began to pick up pace and the plots fan out and develop. I do agree the characters are a little flat and react rather than act, but at least I'm not annoyed with them in this book. For an author's second book, I think it's fairly solid.
This was the middle of the trilogy and I was very hopeful as subtle themes of choice, free will and the fight of good against evil unfolded subtly in the background. It was a well written, suspenseful read.
I was, however, disappointed after reading the third book and looking back over where everthing came together. The thing that I was disappointed with was where the theology ended. It seemed a very Old Testament only theology.
The discussion on free will was sound, but just stopped too soon. As Romans tells us we are all sinners and there is not even one who seeks God. We do not use our free will to seek God. The author also clearly showed how even our motivation to do good is grounded in selfish motives, for fame, money, power, appreciation, acceptance or even to gain love. The disappointing factor for me is that it was not once referred to that Messiah came and died to break those bonds that keep us enslaved to sin and set us free to choose righteousness, because of the transforming power of Christ in us. In fact, I thought the ending showed a very non-Christian, humanistic view. Man makes a sacrifice and love triumphs. So my recommendation would be to enjoy the story, but don't think of it as a Christian book in any way.
