Remember by Gary M. Parham is a children’s fantasy novel that presents the epic story of mankind, as seen in the Bible, in a new, intense way. Parham’s book throws readers into the midst of a straightforward adventure tale about God Himself—King Adonai. The King has a great kingdom filled with diverse perfect beings called Malachs. When one of the Malachs becomes vicious and begins to destroy everything, King Adonai’s fragile new people, the Zera, are sent to a protected place called the Garden. It isn’t long before evil finds them. Only those who read a special book that can connect them to the King will understand how to tap into the King’s secret plan amid the waste, torture, and disruption of the Garden.
Remember could easily be called The Adventures of King Adonai. He is developed as a central character in a way reminiscent of C.S. Lewis’s iconic Aslan, but with a more personal flavor than even Lewis was able to create. A wise leader, and a sensitive individual who wants a close relationship with his special new creations, the Zera, he was a character I truly got to know and care about. It was exciting to see His friendship with the great Malachs Gabriel and Michael, and His decisions unfolding with well-crafted and exciting plotting amid heroism, friendship, struggle, and heartache as families are torn apart. Gritty emotion and Gary M. Parham’s resonant, highly visual writing bring a frightening reality to the descent of one of the greatest Malachs into a dragon-like prince of darkness, and his conflict with the King drives through the story like a hammer hitting a nail—soundly and well.
