The Violet Flash shouldn't be read without first picking up a copy of The Blue Umbrella, but it is a fantastic story nonetheless. Mason is an expert wordsmith, and he weaves brilliant plot twists into a simple story to build engaging action. He creates interesting, believable characters, often wise beyond their years, and he places them in the midst of relatable struggles. Most impressive, though, is his ability to use symbolism to integrate faith deftly into the plot.
Though The Violet Flash is primarily a fantasy novel for pre-teens, it has the power to reach a much broader, more mature audience with its sincere spiritual insights. As Ches races against time, he struggles with much deeper and more personal issues: who he can trust, whether his comatose father deserves his love, and whether there is a God, to name a few. In this book, Mason brings to vividly colored light the biblical concept of a "new heaven and a new earth" (Rev. 21:1), and addresses difficult questions that are applicable to young and old alike.
