Parisa

When world class snowboarding sensation, Scott Locke, returns to his home in West Virginia to be honored by the ski resort where he worked as a teenager, a freak accident costs him the opportunity to compete in the upcoming X-Games. Broken and distraught, the competition soon becomes a secondary consideration when Scott unwittingly releases a force that has been locked away for centuries, a force so powerful and dark that it threatens all mankind.

Parisa is an ancient spirit; exotic, beautiful, and mysterious, yet out of place in today’s world. Scott must find a way to help her acclimate and nurture respect, love, and tolerance for humanity. The plan begins to backfire as Scott develops feelings for Parisa, and he is drawn into her world of magic and power. In the face of great temptations, Scott must make the ultimate choice. He must decide to sacrifice his love for the sake of all mankind or give in to his passion and enjoy the riches and rewards of unlimited power.

Praise Parisa by Conrad Trump

“Parisa held my interest and was hard to put down. I enjoyed it and can’t wait for Conrad to write another story. I believe Parisa would make a good movie!”- Debbie Moore, Reviewer

“I read Conrad’s book in less than three days. Not only is it a good story, but anyone from West Virginia will love the way Conrad blended our home state into the story about a West Virginia native who becomes a world class snow boarder. This gave us native mountaineers a great deal to be proud of not only with the West Virginia setting, but knowing our native son has developed into a great writer.
I look forward to reading more stories written by Conrad in the future. I loved the book.”-KC Bohrer, Reviewer

“What an excellent book! This book keeps you hanging until you get to the next page. An excellent read by an excellent author! I am looking forward to reading future books by this author! Excellent word choice provides vivid pictures throughout the story. Excellent story line.”- Meredith L. Zirkleml, Reviewer

My Review

4 stars

Scott Locke is a competitive snowboarder. He is all set to take part in the X-Games when a freak accident changes his world. He unwittingly uncovers and released an ancient genie, Parisa. From there Scott faces some challenges when he tries to being Parisa’s willingness to serve him into the present day. He also has a hard time with Parisa because he is falling in love with her even though he has a girlfriend. But then something he said backfires and something happens that leaves Scott full of guilt.

This is not my normal read with the whole snowboarding/X-Games thing. But I quickly found myself wanting to know more about Parisa and see how Scott was trying to explain how things are in the modern day. There was a great twist when you learn more about Parisa, I was shocked but loved the information.

I really liked this story and see that there is going to be a second book. I am curious to see what happens to Parisa next.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
