Tales of the Dim Knight, Andrea and Adam Graham, Splashdown Books, Comedy/Fantasy, 2010, 354 pages.
My thoughts: I enjoyed this book, not only because it takes place in the local city of Seattle, but because it promoted great family values. Granted, it had some cheesy dialogue, but it played with the superhero clichés quite a bit. Not all the book is light-hearted humor, though. There are a few points where it explores the dark territory of how far one should go in the name in justice, and where it becomes plain revenge and/or spite.
Marriage is a big theme in this book, I was surprised to find. Dave, the “superhero,” often finds himself away from his family, and mistrust builds between him and his wife. She eventually attempts a divorce, and Dave asks, “What haven’t I done for her?” He sets aside more time for his family, and ultimately turns to God for help.
Although not everyone will meet an alien symbiote and inherit powers, this book is still practical in everyday life regarding decisions about justice, revenge, and marriage.
My rating: 4 stars
