One thought on “The Legend of the Firefish

  1. George Bryan

    This book has lots of swords and monsters, a love story, and people struggling against the odds It has a siginificant spiritual bent, traditional like 17th century Christian I really like it, but then, I m a bit biased.

  2. Ron

    Some books by Christian authors will be enjoyed by all readers Lord of the Rings comes to mind Others, while equally enjoyable for Christian readers, will probably fail to connect with non Christian readers The Legend of the Firefish fits that latter category.The premise is promising a seventeenth century sea faring tale in which certain mythological elements sea monsters are true The storytelling is competent.Writing any novel with a Christian worldview adds a dimension which some readers will [...]

    I was unaware when I picked this book up that it was Christian fiction I generally avoid the genre as I find it overall poorly written, preachy in tone, and pretty much romantic fiction which I also do not read Given my bias against the genre, I was pleasantly surprised by this book I found the balance between story and message appropriate The emphasis on message did not detract from plot or characterization overmuch, and I was able to read the book without being too annoyed.

  4. Rachel

    I stumbled across this book at my local library, when I was searching for a not super serious dramatic heavy book to read last weekend I was searching Christian fiction in the library catalogad this synopsisd was just floored by the idea of a Christian book with pirates in it So I just had to pick it up.I loved this book My expectation going in was that it might be kind of airy, entertainment than good theologybut this book was something altogether unexpected and amazing As the characters strug [...]

    I have a grandson that loves fiction fantasy books I was a little concerned until I found read your book, The Legend Of The FireFish I have ordered him the trilogy set I loved reading FireFish and may be hooked on fantasy and dragons myself He is coming by today on his way back to college and pick up another trilogy by another Christian author, L A Kelly I have bought him other sets at the Family Christian Store but when I checked Saturday, they were not carrying any dragon fantasy type Christia [...]

    Get ready for an adventure on the sea Packer Throme begins his quest to hunt the Firefish with secrets given to him by his father by stowing away on Scat Wilkin s a notorious pirate ship The Trophy Chase But will he die at the hand of Talon, a woman who has turned her back on God, before he ever gets the chance to share his knowledge and desire And what will happen to Panna, the girl he loves I really liked this book although it did take quite a bit of concentration to get through One of the mai [...]

  7. Iris

    I didn t realize this was a Christian book when I picked it up at the library I was a little worried that the story wouldn t be very good complex It turned out OK While it had a slow start, the characters were likeable for the most part and the story was fun and even exciting at times I m not sure I ll finish out the trilogy as the writing and themes were a bit too simple for my taste.

  8. Caroline Jones

    A GREAT book I love the characters and the plot and it s very well written The only thing I d say is that there is a good bit violence, so if you re sensitive to violence, this book might not be for you Other than that, it was a great read

  9. Ruth

    Packer Throme, a failed seminary student, turns to the sword as the means of proving his worth and hatches a daring plan to save his fishing village from poverty He concocts a plot to stow away aboard the pirate ship Trophy Chase, whose captain, the notorious Scat Wilkins, hunts a treasure far valuable than silver or gold Wilkins hunts the Firefish, legendary sea creatures whose meat is a highly prized and valuable commodity Packer has little idea of the life threatening dangers facing him when [...]

    in a history that is similar to our own, but different in that the giant sea monsters drawn on maps are actually real, a young man is strangely obsessed with the legend of the firefish he believes he can help find the elusive beasts but the only problem is that the only people interested in hunting the firefish are pirates stowing away on a pirate ship is almost a certain death sentence, but that is just what packer our hero does this leads to the first of several times he is nearly killed, but [...]

  11. Erin

    I picked this book up a clearance sale with no expectations The cover and title were intriguing Usually, that turns out fairly well as I have no glowing reviews to taint how I process the story This one only turned out sort of on par with that trend The world and mythology is top notch However, there is too many monologues for my taste Monologues that only end with God will decide I m okay that the characters end up this way it is just frustrating that we spend so much time with them arguing a d [...]

  12. Les Andrews

    Interesting book I really liked the storyline and the characters I do have one gripe about it The author created this beautiful story in a different world during a different timet didn t want to create a Jesus in that world that reflected that When it came to that his creativity was dry How does an author just transplant the exact story of Jesus, in our timeline, into a created fictional world The author also needs to create a Jesus that fits into that world like C.S Lewis and Tolkien did, and t [...]

  13. Karen Jones

    Great book on faith and trust Shows great glimpses of how God works, and we don t realize it until someone points it out later.

  14. Samantha

    A heroic struggle of faith a compelling story of adventure, mythology, honor sacrifice.Packer Throme begins his quest to hunt the Firefish with secrets given to him by his father by stowing away on Scat Wilkin s a notorious pirate ship The Trophy Chase But will he die at the hand of Talon a woman who has turned her back on God before he ever gets the chance to share his knowledge and desire And what will happen to Panna, his beloved This book was a little wierd but it had a very good message tha [...]

  15. Jami

    What a fantastic story There aren t any slow boring parts and than enough edge of your seat adventures I ve never read a book that had so many climaxes in the plot I also Love that Packers faith is part of the main focus and that Panna is a strong woman of faith and also just a strong woman An extremely well told tale I recommend it

  16. J-rod Drudge

    It was very adventurs and with a lot of caracters that have purposes that make sense in th story My favorate caracter is Packer Throme, and Scat Wilkins They both play an important role in the story If Scat Wilkins wasn t in the story, then Packer wouldn t of been in the story and it probaly would not have been very intresting I really liked it, and I bet the second book will be even better.

  17. Jennifer Nelson

    Wow What a rip roaring tale this was This book is action packed and a real page turner I enjoyed the rollicking ride and was also pleasantly surprised by the depth of the plot and the soul spiritual issues that were fleshed out as the characters responded to difficult situations This is Christian fiction a step above the average.

  18. Je74393

    I really enjoyed this book It was thought provoking, exciting, and for me often unpredictable It was pretty violent sometimes, but had very little sexuality I appreciated the closer look into characters minds and hearts The story had a whole lot happening all at once and yet was very well held together.

  19. Mary

    Two and a half stars.There s too much explaining of people s thoughts, intentions, and what their faith is All this internal dialogue slows the story down too much I just kept thinking, get on with the story.

  20. Marie

    It s a shame that this series remains unnoticed I read them several years ago, and I loved them Definitely a good and very exciting read It is packed with action, adventure, and a powerful message blended throughout I wish Christian fiction could have this mix of fantasy and adventure

  21. Catrina

    2.5 stars I found that I didn t have much emotional connection with the characters I didn t really care what happened to them Some of the non fighting annoyed me Though I did like how easy it was to read Over all, an okay book I will probably read the second one, since I have it.

  22. Lisa

    I loved this book I liked the Christian aspect of it and the real struggles between right and wrong And not to mention PIRATES lol I started the sequel but I couldn t get into it Firefish ends nicely, the sequels weren t exactly necessary Recommended

  23. Sarah Fisher

    This book was very exciting and although I did not care much for the romantic part of the plot, the action sequences had me on the edge of my seat also the firefish are pretty awesome.

  24. Marion Hill

    The first novel in the excellent Trophy Chase Trilogy A cross between Treasure Island and Pilgrim s Progress A good read

  25. Elizabeth Goddard

    This is one of my favorites I love the writing, the story, and the deep message Gotta have that message.

  26. Cindy K

    WONDERFUL treat of writing that pulls you into intrigue and near medieval legend slight fantasy element
