Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Adair's conclusion to her paranormal romance trilogy that began with Night Fall and Night Secrets smoothly blends sensuality and espionage. As two covert T-FLAC (Terrorist Force Logistical Assault Command) agents—newbie Alexis Lexi Stone and seasoned veteran Alexander Stone (no relation)—travel the globe in search of those responsible for a series of bombings, the pair must contend with the attraction that threatens to destroy the professionalism of their relationship. Complicating the mission for Lexi are orders from her superiors to kill Alex if, as they suspect, Alex is a rogue operative. Meanwhile, Alex, who frequently teleports from one location to another, has to deal with deadly doppelgängers who have a tendency to disintegrate into soot. The confusing similarity of the protagonists' names provides some comic relief from the thriller action and hot sex. (Nov. 25)

'Night Shadow' is the first of this series that I have read although there were clearly several previous books in the series. I'm not sure if it's the author's writing style or if the previous books contained information relevant to this one that wasn't repeated, but at times I was very confused as to what was happening. The heroine, Lexi Stone, is a T-FLAC operative (I am still not sure what T-FLAC is or what it stands for) on her first mission when things start to go wrong. She's teamed up with a wizard with the confusingly similar name Alex Stone and desperate to prove she can be a good operative, despite having previously worked in a back-room office function. However when various terrorists threaten groups of people spread widely around the globe, and the terrorists all look like a younger Alex Stone, it's clear there's something very strange going on.

The action is fast in this story with Lexi and Alex travelling from Taiwan to Russia to Los Alamos to Berlin in the blink of an eye. They are following a trail which leads them to suspect an army of clones is being created but I was never entirely sure how they made the leaps of imagination that they did. The romance aspect of the story was perfunctory and rather uninspiring and the complexity of the plot, where I always felt I didn't have enough information (and neither did they) to make the deductions that were made, resulted in the book being rather unsatisfactory. Some heroes/heroines of previous books were brought in towards the end but they didn't add much overall to the story and I felt my attention wandering.

I am a fan of Ms. Adair but this time around leaves me somewhat disappointed because of the last book in this triology. First, book three was over priced. It was a ripoff for the publisher to print the first two books in paperback and to print the last book as a bound copy, and to price it three times the price of the first two. In my opinion, this is BLATANT price gouging on behalf of the publisher or maybe the author for all that I know. Second, to add insult to injury, both books one and two had better story development. There were spots in book three where I found the story development muddled. It seemed as if Ms. Adair was rushing toward a deadline instead of developing a plausible storyline.

I bought this book and the audio so I could just be lazy and read along and I have to tell you it was a wonderful experience. I absolutely loved this book. Alex and Lexie were fabulous and all the secondary characters were wonderful, with the exception of the bad guy, of course.
AND what made it so good was the narrator. If you were a woman you sounded like one and if you were a man you had a perfectly male voice. Spectacular narration.

Besides their employment as Terrorist Force Logistical Assault Command (T-FLAC) operatives Lexi and Alex Stone have only on thing else they share, their identical surname. Alex is an experienced operative who rarely comes in from the cold; Lexi the human works data like a wizard in the office.

The T-FLAC leaders fear super field agent Alex the wizard has joined the enemy as there is proof of his staging terrorist events. They want to confirm their suspicion but know a field pro would be outed rather easily by Alex; they send Lexi who never leaves the office to investigate under the guise of assisting him. If she finds proof she must kill him. Alex is irate with his new partner who obviously has never stepped out of the office controlled climate into the field tundra. He has no time to protect Lexi, as something chilling is occurring around the globe. However she proves useful as her data analysis skills begin to uncover a pattern of terrorist strikes .His foster brothers Lucas Fox (see NIGHT SECRETS) and Simon Blackthorne (see NIGHT FALL) try to help the stunned couple deal with an international threat.

The final T-FLAC romantic suspense espionage urban fantasy is a super thriller that teleports readers around the globe as Lexi and Alex struggle with doppelgangers and love; with the latter being more dangerous. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action as once again Cherry Adair makes her realm seem genuine, but also adds self spoofing humor with the names of her lead couple. The return of the T-FLAC heroes from the previous paranormal spy novels enhance a strong finale that will have fans clamoring for more tales in the Adair environs.

Night Shadow by Cherry Adair is a 2008 Ballantine publication.

This is the fourteenth book in the T-Flac series as a whole. Now, I have not read every single book in this series by a long shot, but I have read several of them and they are all a little different. Some are like mini series within a series and this one falls into that category. In fact, this is the last book in the trilogy and I do recommend reading them in order. Other books in the T-FLAC series can be read as a stand alones. Some are paranormal, some traditional Romantic suspense and some have an action adventure feel to them.

This one is a futuristic paranormal romantic suspense featuring Lexi and Alex Stone... no relation. They work for a counter intelligence agency and find themselves stuck together in a pretty intense situation. Lexi is a die hard rule follower, doing everything by the book, while Alex is a little on the rogue side, doing things his own way. Alex has certain paranormal abilities, Lexi does not. But, the main worry is that it looks as though Alex is about to jump ship and go to work for the other side, which may mean Lexi will have to terminate him.

But, soon Lexi will learn more about Alex and it appears they will have to trust one other because they can't trust anyone else.

This is not my favorite installment in the series. I found it imaginative and Lexi was kind of funny with all recitations of the rules and regulations, the mission is action packed and suspenseful, but it has a sort of campy quality to it, and the bad guys are pretty transparent, which was not the case in the other 'Night' books, so I had a really hard time getting into this one.
Even though it was not my favorite I am glad I read the final book since we do have a closure and all questions are answered.
Over all this one is one gets 3 stars
