The Best People In The World!

Monday, July 11, 2011


I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

Nolan Gray knows just how hard this world can be, the evil that dwells in the hearts of men that are corrupted by greed and pride. Spending much of his life not only serving in the armed forces as a trained specialist in every type of training he could get his hands on, now he seeks to fulfill a promise he made to himself. To rid the world of evil men and change the hearts of the citizens of the world from the inside out. He had to give them what had provoked them into fear and that would be hope. Hope in a better way. Hope that things could be better. If perhaps he could lead by example, then the rest would follow.

Finding that his death would allow him the secrecy he so desired, he teams up with his ex-captain from the military and a technology genius and begins to take back the streets of New York from the criminals and drug loads that roam free. Corruption, blackmail, bribes, extortion, prostitution, and weapons sales have made evil men rich, but one by one, Nolan Gray will use all of his tools to take back the streets and restore law, order and justice by becoming a vigilante.

In the novel, Vigilante by Robin Parrish, we get to have a sense of vengeance at seeking to right all the wrongs in this world through the eyes of one man, Nolan Gray, a decorated war veteran that seeks to use peaceful alternatives to take back the streets of his own city. Armed with high-tech weapons this book is a perfect blend of The Punisher meets Mission Impossible on a highly adrenaline pumping suspense thriller from the very first page.

I received this book compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and LOVED this book. It had me rooting for Nolan every step of the way. Unlike all the other action adventures we have grown accustomed to seeing on the big screen, this one is believable and his cause is morally sound. At times his tragic war experiences come back to haunt him and show the character of Nolan Gray is not at all without his faults. It's his faith in God that will restore his turbulent soul and restore hope once more for good in the hearts of men. This one rates a heart stopping 5 out of 5 stars. Available at your local retailer in paperback and eBook formats.

Robin Parrish


Robin Parrish wants to take you on a ride.

A wild ride -- which is exactly what you're in for when you pick up one of his books. And he's adamant that it will never be the same kind of experience twice.

Robin's stories mix, mingle, and meld various genres together to create thoroughly original suspense/thrillers. His Dominion Trilogy, for example, mashed up superhero action, secret societies, ancient myths, and an apocalyptic setting to create an entirely new take on the classic "hero's journey." Offworld mixed science fiction and an end-of-the-world scenario with high-octane action. Nightmare, his 2010 novel, is a spine-tingling examination of the world of the paranormal, paired with can't-put-it-down mystery. His 2011 novel, Vigilante, is an action-packed story about a soldier who sets out to change the world. Later this year, he's releasing his first ever Young Adult novel, titled Corridor.

Always pushing the envelope, ever on the edge of where modern storytelling is going, Robin Parrish will gladly and unapologetically tell you that he's an entertainer, a weaver of stories that ignite the mind and delight the heart. Defying labels and refusing pigeonholes, his imagination is fueled by the possibilities of asking "What if…?", and as anyone who's read his work knows, he has a very big imagination.

His influences as a novelist range from television and film storytellers like Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams, to masters of the modern myth like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Akin to Philip K. Dick's search for the meaning of identity, most of what Robin writes about boils down to his own ponderings and examinations of just what this thing we call "existence" is.

Robin is a full time writer. He and his wife Karen and two children live in High Point, NC.

"Robin Parrish is a keen-eyed, passionate pop cultural savant,

whose writing is as incisive and insightful as it is entertaining."

- Allan Heinberg, Executive Producer, Grey's Anatomy


Nolan Gray is an elite soldier, skilled in all forms of combat. After years fighting on foreign battlefields, witnessing unspeakable evils and atrocities firsthand, a world-weary Nolan returns home to find it just as corrupt as the war zones. Everywhere he looks, there's pain and cruelty. Society is being destroyed by wicked men who don't care who they make suffer or destroy.

Nolan decides to do what no one else can, what no one has ever attempted. He will defend the helpless. He will tear down the wicked. He will wage a one-man war on the heart of man, and he won't stop until the world is the way it should be.

The wicked have had their day. Morality's time has come. In a culture starving for a hero, can one extraordinary man make things right?
