Book Description

Preston Davis is an all-around Boston guy. He loves his Red Sox, and he also loves his fantasy stories. He is also a recently-converted Christian whose newest fantasy land -- Arida -- is based upon his love of fantasy and Christian teachings, with himself as Arden, the land's God. However, Urcin -- the evil one -- is drawing many of Arden's followers away from the light.

Yet Preston knows nothing of this -- until he is transported to his land following a car crash, and it is up to him to save the land.

With the help of his halfling followers and a cast of others, Preston journeys to The Dragon's Teeth to face off with Urcin in a battle of Good vs. Evil, with Arida the prize to the victor.

I normally do not read this genre so this was actually my first fantasy novel. I was pleasantly surprised!! This book moved at a very fast pace! The author did a superb job with his descriptive writing. I felt as if I was right in the middle of the action! If u haven't read this genre before, give this book a try as I think you will quickly become a fan as I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Creator Meets his Creation in my Favorite New Fantasy Book 4 Nov. 2010
By K. Crumley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imagine Tolkien waking up in his own Middle Earth...
CS Lewis stepping through his wardrobe, into a real, live Narnia...
L. Frank Baum being swept up in a cyclone, landing in Oz...
The Creator winds up in a land of his own creation.
That's the premise for John Fitch V's. Christian Fantasy One Hero, A Savior.
In the midst of a storm, young Red Sox fan Preston is on his way to meet his sweetheart Lynnabeth. Then, tragedy strikes as Preston is hit by a sports car.

He wakes up in a beautiful land, where the sun is shinning brightly and realizes he's not in Boston anymore. Soon he discovers that he is in a land of his own creation, Arida, The domain of the fantasy stories he writes. Arida is populated by innocent Halflings, noble Elves, wicked Dwarves and malicious Orcs.
Preston is faced with many trials, and challenges...and must accept his destiny as Lord over Arida.

The story is full of clever Christian symbolism, even right down to the naming of Preston's arch enemy. The imagery, and descriptions make Arida appear right before your minds eye. And, Preston is the most instantly likeable fantasy character since Harry Potter.

I highly recommend One Hero, A Savior to fantasy fans of all ages.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 1 Mar. 2011

I did not pay close attention to the book description to realize that this is a fantasy book (nor does that really matter). I won't give away details or discuss what readers can plainly discover from reading the book synopsis. So the following are just my general impressions on the quality of writing. The author's description of a weather system in the first couple pages really sucked me into the story. Typically, when they are that good, I know I am in for a treat. As I alluded to in the first sentence, this is a fantasy. The main character, Preston, somehow finds himself actually *in* the fantasy world he created. Evil has overrun his peaceful utopia and it is up to him to set matters right. Fans of Tolkien will smile to discover familiar races of beings as characters in the story. As a lover of "The Hobbit" since I was 9 years old, and as a semi-recent lover of "The Lord of the Rings" as well, I found "One Hero, A Savior" a light and enjoyable read, thoroughly worthy of the highest praise.

For readers who abhor the very mention of God and Christianity, be warned that Preston's Christian faith is lived out and is in fact the basis for his created world. It is not, however, "rammed" down the reader's throat, so this is something I think anyone could enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Draws you in and doesn't let go 24 Dec. 2011
By D. G. Gass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In a land of orcs, elves, dwarves, halflings and humans, an evil force has taken hold. As the evil Urcin gains power through out Arida, he begins drawing the followers of Arden to him and away from the goodness of Arden, the creator.

Preston Davis finds himself in the land of his creation after being hit by a speeding car in the streets of Boston. It is then, that he finds that all is not as it should be in the land of Arida, a place that was meant for the inhabitants to live in peace. Yet peace was not to be found in a place that was on the brink of war. It's up to Preston, aka Arden, the land's creator, to set things right. The question is, can he do it in time?

"One Hero, A Savior" is a well-written, fast-paced story where the author takes our imagination into a colorful fantasy realm, in the style of Tolkien. Fitch artfully builds the hero's relationships with the characters, interweaving Davis's motivation to save his beloved halflings with a strength rooted in the characters faith - Davis's in God and the halflings faith in their Arden.

I found "One Hero, A Savior" an excellent fantasy read and recommend it, especially for those looking for a Christian-based fantasy genre story.
