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

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. I laughed at all the mentions of 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.
Pilot/The One where Gaia Moves to New York
The story starts with a seventeen-year-old inexperienced in everything(except for kicking ass!), Gaia Moore. She is fearless. Literally. She wasn't born with the fear gene. Thanks to that, she was trained in martial arts. Her father, along with George, are in the CIA, and George decides to take Gaia in with him and her wife Ella in New York. O ...more
I picked up this book at the library that looked pretty good. The
title? Fearless. Now, as I looked at the back of the book to see that
summary, an unpleasant feeling washed over me. First off, Gaia kind of
seems like a perfect girl. I do not like perfect girls.(
Beautiful...Brilliant... Can break codes in 4 different languages...
Reflex speed that's off the charts. What is this, a one man show of the
Gallanger Girls?. Also, the cliche plot line: Guy(Sam) that's unavailiable, And there, I kne ...more
Four years later and I still freaking loved it.
Gaia was born without the Fear gene which basically means that you can find her front and center of any trouble. As an orphan she thinks she has nobody, but unknown to her, there are forces working to keep her safe.
It's short yet it's packed with so much that I really really really want to keep going with the series... but you know... there are 36 and from what I remember ...more
Once upon a time, there was a girl who was fearless. She walks around beating people up for "the greater good" and dreams of being a waitress. But she. She realizes that she MIGHT just die soon, so she decides that she HAS TO sleep with a guy. The guy she chooses happens to be good looking AND the boyfriend of her enemy. This guy gets kidnapped, the kidnapper makes the girl go through a whole bunch of tests, the guy is saved. End of story.
If you haven't read the book yet, I'm sorry ...more
I still remember the plot now even when the last time I read it was around 8 years ago. I remember how I was so fascinated with the - albeit somewhat gimmicky - structure of the book; the different font sizes randomly scattered through out, the "caption/preview" of the chapter, the journal entries between the chapters. I remember how I loved Ed, and Heather (yes, Gaia's nemesis).
And oh, how I remember how I hated Gaia. But, I mean, I should've expecte ...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
Gaia was born without the fear gene, and happens to not only be quite tough, but also insanely brilliant. When a female classmate ends up hospitalized because Gaia, out of disdain, failed to warn her about impending danger, things get very dicey for Miss Fearless. Things are only going to get crazier for her, though.
What could have been a great action/adventure story was ruined by content--see below--and magazine-esque formatting that took up a lot of space, made the novel choppy ...more
And can you say Mary Sue? Gaia has too many perfect things about her. She's drop dead gorgeous, secretly brilliant at chess, knew how to do complex algebra equations when she was in the third grade, speaks several lang ...more
Now, I'll admit, I wasn't extremely ...more
I enjoyed Francine Pascal's 'Sweet Valley High' series, but I was disappointed with this book. The only similarity to 'Sweet Valley', is the description of Gaia, blonde hair and perfect figure like the Wakefield twins.
Not that I was expecting 'Sweet Valley High', but that series was engaging and it had less to work with - just identical twin sisters making their way through h ...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
First of all, Gaia should be named Morgan after the goddess, Morrigan. More suitable.
My fave part is Gaia's fearlessness, especially when I was younger being an anxious kid.
I like the premise, but it's lacking something.
Gaia is a sue, I hate to say. She is perfect at everything. She is also judgmental as fuck.
What is it with Francine's fetish for blondes? Just sayin. Lol
It did make me super nosta ...more
She hasn't seen her dad since she was twelve years old. Her mom was murdered at about the same time and she has bounced around a lot from one home to the next. She is now living with a CIA mentor of her dad's named George and his wife Ella. Gaia and Ella do not like each other.
Gaia is gre ...more
I would have thought Fearless was going to be a thrilling read. I admit the whole aura of the book, from the cover, to the title combined with the awesome font raised my expectations quite a bit. In the end, disappointment does not even begin to cover it.
The plot, at first, had me really hooked. Gaia sounded like such and engaging character. The fear gene was removed from her, parents are gone, master in spy stuff and martial arts, etc. That would have mad ...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
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
But no. It didn't quite go like that. This book wasn't bad per se but I am not compelled to continue with the [overly large] series ...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
I love the funny banter between the heroine and her bestfriend guy who's in a wheelchair. Unlike most stories with handicapped character who would make you feel sorry for them or make you cry for their "tragic" situation, this character--Ed--is totally different. Rather ...more
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 th ...more
