Book Review: Vigilante

VigilanteVigilante by Robin Parrish

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Vigilante by Robin Parrish was a really easy book to read, with lots of action. The main character is an elite war hero with amazing skills and a team that provides him with cool gadgets for crime fighting. He develops a plan to "show the world a better way" and begins to help people by saving them from crime and villains.  The action was great; the only issues I had were the character of Alice, while loveable and necessary to the story, seemed a bit unrealistic- he saves her from an abusive husband and immediately trusts her enough to risk his identity being revealed and eventually even invite her to live with them in his secret hideaway to save her from her husband.  That whole thing came about too easy and she accepted his actions and plans with very little thought- it seemed to tied up and neat.  The Christianity part of the book seemed almost secondary as well- growing up with a pacifist background, I was a little torn between the "help" the team gives others and the means used to do it, which granted, later becomes part of the character's conflict.  It just seemed to be shoved to the side to allow for all the action to unfold.  I did enjoy it though and would recommend it.

I recieved this book for free from the publisher for review.
