Grant Borrows' life has just taken a drastic left turn. There's another man in the world wearing his face and living his life. What's more, the man he sees in the mirror is a stranger.

Somehow, he's been Shifted -- his whole life fundamentally altered, in the space of a single breath. But the changes don't stop at skin-level. Inexplicably, he's able to affect objects around him by simply thinking about them. And as he soon learns, he's become the central figure in a vast web of intrigue that stretches from an underground global conspiracy to a prophecy dating back over seven thousand years, that tells of his coming. Enemies and allies find him at every turn, but one thing they all learn very quickly is that you don't want to push Grant Borrows too far...

Can destiny be undone?

The players are ready. The game is in motion. And the pace is Relentless.

In the allegorical tradition of Tolkien and Lewis comes a powerful new myth for a new generation.

Editorial Reviews

Marty Medley
"If you enjoyed Ted Dekker's Three, or Frank Peretti's Monster, you will love this book. Non-stop action makes Relentless hard to put down!"
Alan Paul Curtis
"All in all, with Relentless, Robin Parrish has given readers an excellent, different approach to a murder mystery book. Mr. Parrish has my endorsement for this, his initial, very imaginative foray into a difficult genre."
Jeff Holton
"If you are a fan of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Ted Dekker or Frank Peretti then this book is a must for you."
Jenn Wright
"...the combination of an incredibly original narrative of a man striving to reach his potential and brilliant storytelling captivated even my stuffy literary attention....

This is one fine debut novel. While Christian themes (particularly regeneration and redemption) are present and very worthy of discussion, there is absolutely no heavy-handed, overtly Christian reference, making it a great read for all audiences, and a superb conversation-starter for those interested in following spiritual themes.

Rather than being a great "Christian novel," Relentless is a great novel by a very talented Christian writer."
Joyce Handzo
"Relentless will quicken your pulse, send shivers of fear through your body, and change the way you look at life. And that's just the first chapter."
Christian Book

What People are saying about this

Shane Werlinger
Relentless is a mystery/ action novel like you've never read. There are
so many twists and turns, you wonder where you'll wind up next. Parrish
feeds us action from beginning to end, and boy what an ending....

Fast Paced action, intrigue, conspiracy, and uncanny events fill the pages of "Relentless." Robin Parrish's writing is compelling, addictive, and exciting.
An ancient secret society "the Secretum Six," the "Dominion Stone", and a group of super-powered people (the Loci) all play a part in the plot twists of this story of supernatural power, as the "Keeper" attempts to control the destiny of the world. Colin Boyd has been "shifted" to become Grant Borrows in order to become the "Bringer" and to fulfill his destiny in this adrenaline producing page turner.
Parish has created characters which divulge the good and evil in each of us, stirring the emotions of the reader from empathy, admiration, and respect, to anger, distrust, and revulsion.
Robin Parish primed the reader for his next book "The Fearless" in which Grant Borrows makes an amazing discovery, and realized it can only be resolved by unraveling the mystery of who he is. This is great writing by a gifted author. I highly recommend.

I was disappointed. I felt the scenes switching suddenly quite annoying. I felt like it was being dragged out to 425 pages. I would rather watch an Xmen movie with all it's mutants! There were too many details that were left undone or did not make sense. How could Grant answer his cell phone when it was left on the coffee table in the previous scene? When there were100 pages left to go, there were so many typos! What happened to the proofreaders? I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy. The first of a trilogy should encourage me to continue not discourage me! Quite disappointing.

Sigh. I'm torn on this book. For the vast majority of this book I REALLY liked it. Liked the writing, liked the concept, liked the characters, liked the plot. It's the story of a man who suddenly in the middle of his morning discovers himself in another man's body and watches himself walking away down the street. Suddenly he has a new identity and some frightening new skills. It brings with it the aspects of science fiction and techno thriller that is guaranteed to lure me in. And it did. But two things take away from the book for me. There is a strange 5-10 page writing blip about 125 pages in where the quality of writing plummets. It recovers and the rest of the book is fine but those few pages just glare. Then about two thirds of the way into the book the plot swerves into a fantasy/supernatural vein that I don't think was properly set up. So at the end of book I felt let down by the author. He led one way then changed directions without a good reason or explanation. The book is the first in a trilogy but you don't even get the whole set up in this first book.So that kicks this down one rating. The author also has this bizarre habit of suddenly jumping from scene to scene in a chapter without any indication. Really annoying.

The story was well written and an interesting premise. Not sure I'm interested in reading more in the series. I would have liked to read more Biblical context.

it took me a while to get into the book because it was far-fetched, however that is what fantasy is all about. the price was right. i won't buy series #2.

I did enjoy the book, but it isn't my normal type of pick. for a change in pace, it kept my attention and it will probably keep yours too....

When he gets off the Los Angeles Metro bus Collin Boyd sees his doppelganger when Collin sees himself in a reflection, he does not recognize what stares back at him as he has changed into a different looking person wearing a gold ring with mystical inscription on it that he cannot remove from his finger. A mysterious woman informs Collin that he is a Shifter. He goes to their enclave only to learn the group believes he is the Bringer, as foretold in a prophecy. Unknown to him a secret society of the Secretum of Six is molding him into a creature with magical powers to change the world in their image.---------------- Many groups are interested in the former Collin Boyd, now known as Grant Burrows. Some want to help him others want him dead. He bonds in a mystical way with the Loci, Shifters who live together in isolation from the rest of the world. The Keeper, a member of the Secretum¿s minion who wants to form Grant into the being he wants him to be. It will take all his goodness not to succumb to the enticing evil of The Keeper.---------- This exciting thriller allows readers to become so immersed in the fast-paced storyline, fans will lose track of time and finish the novel in one sitting. Grant is a wonderful protagonist who keeps the tale focused even as he struggles with his transformation. There are many dangling threads and unanswered questions that will have readers RELENTLESSly anxious for the next installment of the Dominion trilogy.------------ Harriet Klausner

I'm only on page 182, but Robin Parrish has captured my full attention. Suspenseful, creative, tightly written - a real page turner. Don't want to give away the story line, but has a common thread with Terry Brook's Sword of Shanarra. Highly recomment!

This book was interesting and engaging. It kept the me turning pages. The characters were easy to relate to, and, althoug the storyline got a little confusing at times, it usually got back on track fairly quickly, and it had just enough twists and turns to keep things interesting. I look forward to reading the other two books in this trilogy.

A quick read that may keep on the edge of your seat to read what happens next. This was a fast paced story that kept you interested through the entire tale. Being that this is the beginning of a series, I can't wait to read all of it!
