Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Teen mercenary Durango’s adventures continue as Gill ramps up the cinematic action for a final showdown between our hero and his military dictator father. The complex plot won’t stand alone, but readers who have enjoyed the first two titles (Black Hole Sun, 2010; Invisible Sun, 2012) will happily revisit Mars, where martial law reigns, outlaws abound, and monks train orphans to become warriors. Durango’s implanted artificial intelligence remains a highlight, and her razor-sharp wit is conveyed in both natural language and computer code. Fellow mercenary and love interest Vienne returns for a side adventure with a Russian biker gang en route to rejoining Durango. With nonstop action and clever dialogue, Gill’s latest will draw new fans. Grades 8-11. --Debbie Carton

Review

"A refreshingly nondystopic sci-fi adventure" --Kirkus Review

"Shadow on the Sun" is a fast-paced, heart-stopping science fiction novel that opens in Fisher 4 where Sturmnacht troops have been deployed to overrun the mines. Fuse, a former Regulator is forced to hide his pregnant wife and her mother while he goes for help.

The story then shifts to Christchurch where Vienne a disgraced Regulator recuperating from life threatening wounds is seeking penance in service to a monastery while she waits for her partner Durango to return. She doesn't know that he's been captured and tortured by his tyrannical father General Lyme. Experimenting on his son the General has duplicated the AI (artificial intelligence) flash-cloned to Durango's brain and has called it Dolly. With this latest weapon he will stop at nothing to gain dominance in the war, even to sacrificing the son who despises him. Can Durango deter this maniac from his plans which could mean the destruction of the planet?

The action in this well-written plot never stops, its energy only lightened by the wit and humour of Durango's interaction with Mimi, the sarcastic AI who has begun to show signs of self-sufficiency. Into this creative and riveting story the writer has infused imaginative weaponry like the armalite, the Crucible and symbiarmour (indestructible body armour).

The core characters are well-developed, and realistic with their multi-dimensional personalities; like Durango, the former Regulator Chief who's tough, brave and sometimes cocky as well as Vienne, a woman haunted by the past who's pragmatic and blunt-spoken, masking a tender heart. Mimi, the AI is amusing with her droll and clever wisecracks. The brothers Khoumanov with their good-natured insensitivity, determination and loyalty are as entertaining as Mimi.

I really don't have a ton of time, so sorry.
But this book is really good and you should read it.
If you like futuristic, lots of technology, super soldier-rebels sort of vibe, read this.
If you like a male teenage narrator with a lot of amusing remarks, read this.
If you like strained family relationships in a tough world, read this.
Just give it a shot okay?
It won't be the absolutely best book you ever read but it is funny and interesting and an adventure. There is a romance, chicas, if you look for that too.
**This is a series so make sure to read in order!
