“Relentless” by Robin Parrish
Book Description (from Amazon) ~ “In the space of a breath, what he thought was his life.shattered. Grant Borrows has been Shifted- in the silence between heartbeats, his whole life fundamentally altered. There’s another man in the world wearing his face and living his life. What’s more, the man staring back from his mirror is a stranger. But the changes don’t stop at skin-level. Inexplicably, he’s able to affect objects around him by simply thinking about them. And as he soon learns, he’s become the central figure in a vast web of intrigue that stretches from an underground global conspiracy to a prophecy dating back over seven thousand years. Enemies and allies find him at every turn, but one thing they learn all too soon is that you don’t want to push Grant Borrows too far… Can destiny be undone? The players are ready. The game is in motion. And the pace is: Relentless. (The Dominion Trilogy Book 1)”.
Grant Borrows has been “Shifted” ~ given a new face & a new name, & some extraordinary abilities! And he immediately finds himself in danger. Someone -for whatever reason- is trying to kill him, and so he’s forced to run.
This is a fast-paced thriller that didn’t let up. There were so many twists & turns that I could never guess what was coming!
My only qualm with this book was that it could’ve used a better proof-reader/editor. There were quite a few instances where things didn’t match up (character sat down on couch, and then three sentences later sat down on the couch…).
What really surprised me about the book was that, it’s a Christian book, and yet God is really not mentioned at all! There’s a brief reference to Him almost at the end, but that’s about it! I looked for an allegory of some sort, and I *may* have found one, but it was *that* difficult to discern, so anybody could read this book and enjoy it for the thriller it is — even those who hate Christian fiction! :o)
Parrish has done an excellent job with this first book in his DOMINION TRILOGY.
