"Leaps of Faith is a magnificent collection of Christian science fiction stories. Karina and Robert Fabian have given fifteen original stories their chance in the spotlight.

genre: Christian Science Fiction
The mining colony at Drumwall Fortress on the planet of Cumaro was the ideal assignment: pristine, wild, and beautiful. There was, however, one deadly flaw -- Lord Banyon, the local tribal chieftain of the Mautlaut, a man the colonists knew better than to cross. Two years prior to Father Andrew Zamora's arrival to serve as colony chaplain, his predecessor disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Now, a Mautlaut runner has brought a message from Lord Banyon -- written in faultless English. Could Father Menlo, the man Father Andrew replaced, still be alive? If so, what does it mean for Drumwall?

Book Reviewed: "Drumwall is a well-written tale of the humanity that exists in each person. [Author] Rodriguez creatively and smoothly infuses religion, science fiction, and discovery." ~ eBook Reviews Weekly 

"Drumwall is a captivating tale that thrusts an unsuspecting, confident priest into an alien world, where the fabric of his faith is challenged." - 4 stars from Timeless Tales
