A hero for a world falling apart
4 stars By Karl, Oct 28 2012
The basic premise of the story is a war hero, scarred in many ways from his experiences, returns home after the war and sees that for many life is not much better. People are without hope, living bleak lives ruled by fear. As a Christian he knows that life can be better, and as a soldier trained to the peak of physical perfection he is determined to become a symbol that people can look to, to show others the better way. While not overtly Christian in his persona as the Hand, a Batman like hero who relys on physical ability and a few key gadgets rather than anything fantastical, this is a thrilling action story, that has many good moments, fight scenes and drama, and good pacing. I did have a few minor quibbles, nothing that spoils the experience but felt a few peripheral things could be fleshed out a bit more at the ending, but on the whole would highly recommend Vigilante.

Everything Christian Fiction Should Be
5 stars By Adam Collings, Aug 11 2012
Robin Parrish does it again. This story follows the journey of a war hero who sacrifices his identity, his whole life, to become a shadowy vigilante crime fighter. Nolan Gray exists in a world that really needs a hero - somebody to take a stand. To me, the feeling of this book was similar to that of the Christopher Nolan Batman films - especially Batman Begins, but this is in no way 'copycat fiction'.

I absolutely loved the character dynamics between Nolan and the other three characters that made up his team. Something made me just want to go and live with them all in their abandoned subway station under the city.

This was an intelligent deep story filled with suspense, heart-ache, and excitement that never rarely lets up. The book asks some very difficult questions, and doesn't provide any pat answers. There is still some doubt left in the protagonists mind at the end regarding the things he has done - but this just leads more powerfully to the thematic climax which points directly to the Bible as the best place to go for our answers.

Vigilante does not have any sci-fi or fantasy elements, but it is set in an 'alternate timeline' - although I'm not sure this was entirely necessary for the story to work.

I take my hat off to the author. This is everything that Christian fiction should be.
