As the characters emerged, I found myself making judgements about them only for those decisions to be challenged later in the book. I wasn’t sure who I supported and it did change as I progressed. This was not a simple story of heroes and villains.
As someone who has lived in York for almost 35 years, it was good to have a feeling for the place, and even to discover some things that I did not know existed! The idea of setting it in York was inspired. It is not the sort of place usually associated with this kind of story.
There were enough tense moments in the narrative to keep me reading, with other times to catch my breath. The ending moved particularly quickly.
I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.
Fallen Warriors is a book like no other I've read: a gripping, yet spiritual, thriller. It weaves together the threads of several different characters' experiences and thoughts as they live and work around York - Christian, non believers, and Muslim - and builds to a stunning climax. Yet it wrestles with God and many real issues, in a way which is realistic without being preachy or offering easy, pat, answers. The characters themselves are no cardboard cutouts; you could easily imagine meeting them in the streets, flaws and all.
Definitely worth a read - as the end nears, it gets harder and harder to put it down.
The ending is left a little open, but I understand the author is planning a sequel; I look forward to hearing what the sequel will be.
Set in the beautiful and historic city of York, Fallen Warriors blends the lives of a wide cast of varied and believable characters whose seemingly disparate lives become connected and caught up in a scarily possible terrorist threat to the city.
Mark's story gives true insight into the different mindsets any Christian can face in their life of faith, from trusting God completely, to doubting His very existence. Alongside this the reader is also introduced to followers of the Islamic faith, some at odds in their understanding of how a Muslim should lead their lives.
The plot gains more momentum as the threat to the city becomes more imminent. The pace in the final chapters becomes frenetic and it becomes impossible to put the story down. The conclusion leaves you breathless and desperate for more.”
Overall though, it is a good book and well worth a read.” I received a review copy from the author.
A clever challenge to our faith, how would we respond to God revealing something to us? recommend reading it to find out.”
