    1. This book ought to come with a warning like the one on amusement park rides. People with hypertension or heart problems should exercise extreme caution when reading Frank Creed's Flashpoint because it's an edge-of-your-seat, thrill-seeking, action-packed ride. Strap in, keep your limbs inside the vehicle, and hold on with white knuckles. Frank absolutely excels at action and he's chocked his under-200-page volume to the very brim with it. Excitement is an understatement. In fact, my old-fashione [...]

    2. In a Christian literature scene chock-full of wistful romances, end-of-the-world tracts, and allegorical sword and dragon fantasies, Frank Creed’s Flashpoint has staked out some unique territory with an adrenalin-saturated cyberpunk adventure that grabbed me by the lapels in the first few pages and didn’t let go until the very end, leaving me gasping for breath and wanting more.We meet 20-year-old David and his teenage sister Jen in a near-future Chicago where economic and environmental disa [...]

    3. If there is one thing that can be said about Flashpoint, it’s this is not your father’s Christian apocalyptic tale. This first book in Frank Creed’s series (the next book is coming out soon, I understand), introduces us to a world controlled by a group referred to as “One-State Neros.” This group attempts to subdue a rebel alliance of Christians who refuse to submit. It is into this group that Dave and Jen are thrown when their own church comes under attack and is captured.But the worl [...]

    4. In a not-too-distant future, the world is ruled by a One State government, the "One Church" movement is an apostate religion that is a tool of government, and real Christians have been labeled "Fundamentalist Terrorists" and have gone underground. If the government catches "Fundis," they place them in a brainwashing camp and "recondition" them for integration into society, rendering them semi-zombies with the aid of a mood-controlling computer chip and chemicals so they can never think of becomi [...]

    5. I met Frank Creed a few years ago through some writers groups and have followed his rise to published author with great interest. Frank is a thinker and he provokes one to follow him into thinking. Too many of us don't think anymore, we simply react. I guess that's why Frank has chosen a sub-genre of speculative fiction called cyber-punk to make his mark.By now, it should be no secret that Flashpoint has won many accolades. I'm not surprised. It's an imaginative potpourri of ideas and ideology t [...]

    6. I recommend this book. Not often does an author integrate Scripture into fiction in a way that does not belittle the Word of God or damage the fictive dream presented in the story. Frank Creed has created a world in which the reader can believe that the power of the Word is used by these fascinating and believable characters. The demonstration of faith is natural not contrived. Young believers, reading this futuristic tale, will witness Christians in action against foes that represent real oppos [...]

    7. Loved this novel. I heard Frank talking about a newer book on the podcast View From The. Bunker. Intrigued I started with book one in the series. I dabble in fiction writing and have been convicted of writing for the world. Frank has opened up a world to me that allows me to peruse my fiction writing within the fiction realm for Christians and others that does not come off with the typical formulaic approach where things are shoe-horned in to fit the formula. Fantastic read and great inspiration [...]

    8. Think of Frank Peretti meets William Gibson with a helping of The Matrix. This book thoroughly subverted my expectations and then blew my mind. It was huge fun, a fast read, thoroughly original characters and concepts, and ranks right up there with the best that happens to be both cyberpunk and Christian speculative fiction. Seriously, put this one right up there with "This Present Darkness" and lose no time adding it to your collection. You can thank me later.

    9. I learned the craft--I wrote the dang thing, and today is its release date. *jumpin on da bed* I'm currently about 25k words into War of Attrition: Book two of the Underground.Reviews are posted at frankcreed
