Move over Bob Mayer and Dan Brown, there's a new kid in town. Michael Grumley's book "Breakthrough" was a home run but he completely knocks it out of the park with "Amid the Shadows!"

Sarah Baxter's mother is violently murdered but the forces of evil are really after Sarah. She has a supernatural gift that a very powerful person wants to extinguish. She ends up in the care of social worker Christine Rose who has her own set of issues. Sarah and Christine find themselves in a terrifying conspiracy that has the fate of the world in the balance. It is imperative that Sarah live but Christine can barely take care of herself. Sarah and Christine find there is someone very special looking out for them.

From the very first few pages, I was completely drawn into the story and could not put the book down. This is one book I will definitely read several times. The characters are very well developed and the plot will keep you guessing all the way to the end. Just when you think you got it figured out, the story takes a very quick turn or another twist is added. This book is full of great characters and adrenaline laced action. Michael leans on his IT background. The history and science are well researched. This is an author you will want to keep an eye on. If "Amid the Shadows" is an indicator, Michael Grumley will be providing us with more great reads!

Another excellent read from Michael Grumley - the kind that you keep next to you on your morning commute so that you can read another few sentences at each red light (yes, I really did).

The storyline is both imaginative and gripping. You start out needing a bit of a willing suspension of disbelief at the premise but the adrenalin-filled plot and the richly drawn characters quickly have you forgetting any thoughts of unreality and reading faster and faster to see what comes next, and in that Grumley definitely does not disappoint.

I admit I was a bit leery of this one at first after reading a few reviews talking about the "religious" plot, but having read it can say with confidence that this is a storyline that will appeal to those who are uninterested in religious themes as well. The religious, or rather faith-based, theme informs the story in a Dan Brown type style, it's not heavy-handed and doesn't preach or convey any kind of missionary agenda.

Now the only question which remains is when is Grumley's next book coming out?

Just finished this really exciting book which has an unusual and imaginative plot. I've read Mr. Grumley's previous book, Breakthrough, which was excellent and he has produced another of the same caliber. Who would think to use 'soldiers' sent by God to battle the evil of the world and inject them into a high paced thriller. There is tension, nail biting suspense and a horrible fear that nothing is going to happen in time to save the devastation of the planet. In the centre of all of this is a little girl with enormous powers which she takes for granted but poses a threat to the power of the man who has set all of the deadly plot in motion. He holds an almost unassailable position within the US government so has free reign to carry out his evil mission and he has many people to do his bidding together with a brilliant cyber hacker in his employ who will place a stranglehold on the world's computers. This is terrorism which is dangerously powerful. Be prepared to be frightened at the possibility of something so deadly happening.

I am so blown away by the storyline and intricate direction of the plot for this book. I really enjoyed the last book from this author and was thoroughly taken aback with my connection of Amid The Shadows. I have read many books from many authors but cannot recall the last time I wept with empathy or had knots in my stomach as I experienced the twists and turns as events unfolded with each turn of the page. I was especially pleased with the feeling of being satisfied as the book neared the end as I tend to dread that inevitable point when I will be forced accept no longer being part of something that I now feel like I am entitled to be included. It is my own selfish trait that usually manifests in criticism of the way a story ended by providing a reason to not miss the story or characters enough to cause distraction from wanting more. However, in this case, I felt sense of contentment with the ending that added to the whole experience of reading this book, allowing me to read the last sentence with a smile. Really, really loved this book!!

I honestly enjoyed this book. It was the second book of mr Grumley's I've read in the last month. Don't let the title of this review throw you. The book started well, and I thought I would like it. As I read further it got better and better. I like books that have a unique (yet very repectful) way of looking at religion. Plus I liked the action. There were enough twists and sub plots to keep it interesting, and I liked the plausible way the ending occurred.

Why only 4 stars? I wasn't 100% happy with how the villain of the story end up. I won't give details to avoid spoiling.

This and his first book Breakthrough are both well worth the cost and are enjoyable reads. I hope there is a third book!
