Unearthly Passion is a challenging work of new adult fiction penned by author Vincy Page. Focusing on the themes of student life in Great Britain, personal life choices, their consequences, and the possibility of coming to religion in the form of committing to Jesus Christ, this is a deep and insightful narrative about morality and human nature. Natalie Parsons comes from a difficult background, desperate for loving affection, friendship, and acceptance. At university, she rebels at the first chance she gets, beginning a tale of decision-making that leads her into a deepening spiral. The promise of God seems like her only way out, and it then becomes a question of whether she can take that path or not.
Taking the biblical themes of temptation and sin into a modern context, there is much observation of the modern world in Vincy Page’s work which is sad, but true. The narrative style keeps things open, neither condemning nor vindicating Natalie’s initial actions, or those of the friends she makes along the way at Edinburgh University. The cultural references to Great Britain, and particularly the Scottish drinking culture, are harrowingly accurate, and the message of hope provided by the acceptance of Jesus Christ is clear and to the point. At times, this feels more like a story intended for discussion than one to be read for entertainment, but that holds its own value in the hands of the right audience. Overall, Unearthly Passion will provide a thought-provoking read for many young people about to enter this part of their lives.
