Fearless (Fearless #1)
Fearless introduces us to Gaia Moore, a girl born without the gene for fear. Gaia's mother was murdered, and her father, Tom Moore, a famous covert antiterrorist mastermind, is in hiding. Now 17 years old, Gaia is living in New York City with Tom's CIA friend, George, and his wife, Ella. Gaia is a prime target for terrorists and is in constant danger, but she is trained in...more
Also, the whole thing about having no gene for fear is done really poorly. She's afraid all the time- but "abstractly." so it doesn't count,...more
After like book three or maybe around six or seven they stopped being as awesome and apparently I just kept buying them out of blin...more
I don't think I'd recommend this book for adolescent girls, because there is way too much value placed on sexiness and having boyfriends and stuff--it takes away from the storyline! The book is about a tough...more

A girl name Gaia is born without the gene to fear. At her favorite place, the park, there has been many people that have been slashed at night time.A girl who is rivals with Gaia goes into the park at night time. Gaia half heatedly tries to warn her, but when the girl d...more
Gaia (oh-my-god her name!) was born without the fearless gene. I don't know how true that is since I never got the chance to follow up on the series. So let's just stick with it. She was trained from a very young age in various fighting skills an 11-year old me would envy. I still would, actually. She roams around at night in the most dangerous part of the park just to see who would ambush her. But lo-a...more
Recently I've been reading kinda bland books cos I'm running out of options alr so Fearless struck me as kinda interesting. I think the main factor here is that we get to know the characters' feelings and thoughts so it definitely adds more drama and the emotions of the characters are very vivid here~ it's like if gaia screws up (--cough-- with the email --cough--) I felt really anxious for her like... WHAT?!!!!!! Gotta bury myself alr lol. Another good poi...more
Sorry for the outburst. But I forgot how much I loved these books. I first read the Fearless books by Francine Pascal when I was 12 or 13 – so over a decade ago. I remember devouring these books, up until at least book #17 – by then I had caught up with the books in the series already published, and after that I forgot about them and went and read other things. Of course, this was before I had the internet and could look up release dates for the books I liked
So, the Fearless bo...more
So the book is about Gaia, a girl who can't feel fear, thanks to a genetic defect. The book is full of scenes of Gaia kicking the butts of various knife-wielding thugs, but it also has the typical teen mush: worries about boys and her looks, and run-ins with the most popular girl in school (who is mean, of c...more
I really can't make a proper review on this book, since reading this was like reading a TV show because certain tiny things required several books to complete when they could have been completed in one chapter, and sadly I only got to read the first three.
Imagine that the story was a loaf of bread. Then, separate the loaf into 36 pieces, each piece different in size from the other. The pieces represent the 36 books and the sizes represent their importan...more
Yeah, so this was apparently published in 1999. This alone probably made the book more interesting because of all the beautiful pre laptop/Gmail/21st century pop culture references (e.g. LOL to the archaic forms of email). All these little moments of old 90s culture provided a minor form of amusement, but otherwise this book was basically pointless.
Gaia has what I call the "Alex Rider" syndrome: she is just so darned perfect at everyt...more
really enjoyed this novel. i really liked the writing and the plot, very original story.
i breezed through it in one day. i enjoyed the short chapters, with the short subchapters.
very fast paced.
weird thing...applauded the author when she used he at the end of a sentence in stead of him...great job, but then when the same instance comes up regarding i vs me, she used me...the wrong one
"he was taller than me"
Not only could she kick some SERIOUS ass, but she managed to be hilarious, witty, sarcastic, beautiful, level-headed, oh and did i mention she's literally fearless . Like dayummm ma you really got it all.
This book was 580-something pages. And I read it all in a day (view spoiler)[ Sorry I have no life (hide spoiler)]. It was action packed and had a pretty intense plot. My only issue was I felt like the...more
She had all of the elements of Cat from 10 Things I Hate About You (whom I love), but poorly executed. She's supposed to be this hardened bitch or something...but with this softer side...more
The POV changes throughout the book from 3rd to 1st person and with a ton of different characters. I wouldn't mind this much, except I found the constantly changing font type, font size, and odd sideways "chapter titles" incredibly confusing and distracting.
In terms of the characters- I do like them. I think that Gaia is the perfect example of an unlikable heroine that the reader still likes, despite her gruff exterior. I really liked Ed. I would have liked to know more about him. Sam seems...more
Ach, ano Sam. O tom vůbec, ale vůbec nevím, co si mám myslet. Ze začá...more
And she's a teenager. Did I mention that? She's never been kissed. She doesn't have any friends and when the opportunity to make friends comes along, it...more
It's also too long, and splutters to an unsatisfying ending. It's meant to make you read the next book in the series, but none of the questions it leaves unanswered are compelling enough to be considered effective cliffhangers.
Still, I read it in one sitting. And laughed a fair amount. And was impressed by some of her insights. She's a real write...more
