THE ONLY WAY OUT IS TO RUN.

On the eve of his seventeenth birthday, Troy Goggin finds himself inexplicably transported to an impossibly huge, miles-long structure called the Corridor. But what is the Corridor, and why was he brought to it?

It's a place of mystery, wonder, and heart-stopping danger. It will test him and push him both mentally and physically. His only companion is the girl whose voice he hears inside his head, explaining the rules he must follow if he hopes to escape.

But there is much more to this extraordinary place than Troy could ever imagine. The Corridor's true purpose -- the biggest mystery of all -- is revealed only to those who make it to the end.


REVIEWS

"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

"The moral dilemmas that the characters find themselves engaged in are palpable; the setting of a faltering America seems almost too real... and the final conclusion rushes to a crashing and unexpected crescendo. Vigilante is a story well told that touches on themes worth thinking about in this day and age."
--Joshua Olds, LifeIsStory

"Parrish's cinematic, visual writing has again produced an action packed movie in book form with strong similarities to comic book superheroes. His characters show great depth as they struggle with moral and ethical issues that could be torn from today's headlines... Parrish's strong characterizations and insightful writing make [Vigilante] not one to miss."
--Gail Welborn, Washington Christian Book Review Examiner

"Once again, [with Nightmare], Robin Parrish proves he belongs in the ranks with Frank Peretti and Mike Dellosso, telling a creepy story with a powerful underlying purpose."
--Eric Wilson, author of Jerusalem's Undead Trilogy

"With the tightly paced and plotted storyline, the excellent characterizations and the attention to story details made [Nightmare] one of my favorite reads of all time. In suspense fiction, it stands easily next to Dean Koontz and Stephen King."
--Paul A. Rose, Jr., actor

"Parrish writes so cinematically [in Offworld], every scene comes to life. The action rips across the pages, and the characters would make stars of the actors in the roles. Parrish keeps the suspense taut by giving more questions than answers and keeping the characters constantly on the run for their lives. The chase scenes are phenomenal, especially Trisha's leap with two jeeps across the sky into a skyscraper. On the screen, it's the kind of scene that would earn a cheer of awe from the crowd, on the page, it made my jaw drop and I wanted to share it with someone else!"
--Christina Lockstein, Christy's Book Blog

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. He describes his 2011 novel, Vigilante, as a story about a man who sets out to do something that no one has ever done before.
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. Readers will be happy to know that he has an endless supply of wild stories with enormous scope, that are still yet to come.
As a journalist, Robin has worked for About.com, CMCentral.com (RIP), INFUZEmag.com (also RIP), PopCultureGeek.com, b5media, SplashPress Media, and many more. His writing has been printed in numerous magazines and newspapers.
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" really is.

Back in 2009, I stumbled across an author named Robin Parrish and his book, Offworld. It was one of my favorites that year, as it grabbed me from page one and led me on an adventure I could see on the big screen of my imagination. When I discovered he had recently published a YA novel, I was pretty excited to read it. It did not disappoint. Parrish's writing style throws you in the middle of the action and allows you to live the experience with the main character. He never lets up and you find yourself on this wild journey through the Corridor, with no idea what is really going on, but completely caught up in the story. I was afraid the ending would be anti-climatic with all the mystery surrounding the Corridor but that wasn't the case. Parrish throws us into the story, runs with it, and then provides a satisfying conclusion. *Disclosure: I received a copy of the e-book for review purposes.

I'm a Parrish fan, and he didn't dissapoint in his latest release about a 17 year-old teenager that has found himself in the Corridor. I found myself immediately caught up in the story, and Robin has a way of ramping up the tension and keeping you on the edge of your seat. I felt like I needed to take a breath, but I couldn't put the book down because I had to know what happens next. I felt for the characters, and worried for Troy a lot. I enjoyed the character development, and there are a few twists and turns you won't see coming. Although not a huge novel in the number of pages, it didn't dissapoint. Enjoyed the ending, but there is a lot of room to keep the story going. This is just a great read. Who knows, maybe we can enter the Corridor again!
