Wow and Wow, what a short story prequel to Deep Shadows by Vannetta Chapman. Reading Overshadowed got me to thinking that we are no where stocked up on supplies as we should be, and makes me want to run out and buy all I can . I read Deep Shadows and loved it . I can’t wait for The Raging Storm book two in The remnant series. Gabe Thompson received a phone call and he goes right into action. He is to relocate. He tells no one what he knows. He leaves his cat with his neighbor , and only tells her that she can have and use anything in his home she needs and takes off. Rumors going around , but no one knows the fully event of what is going to happen. Are you prepared for a solar flare, which would plunge the world into total darkness for decades to come? Chapman has done her research on this one and it has got me to really thinking .
How would you handle the a solar flare? The possibility of the modern world being changed as we know it? Who would you tell?
I asked myself these questions, while reading this fast paced, thrilling prequel to Dark Shadows. Overshadowed makes the reader wonderful about how they would handle the scenario and if they would behave the same as the characters.
Gabe is our primary character, he is a level headed and holding a huge secret. There is a coming darkness but he can't share with anyone. He is also going undercover, as an agent for the government, he needs to leave his life fast. Gabe does this but thankfully leaves hints and his cat for Lenora, his neighbor. Gabe gave this calming present of experience and training to me as a reader. He may not know the extent of what is coming, but he is the one I would want to be close to when it happened.
Lenora, Gabe's neighbor knows something is very wrong. Gabe has left before but he has never left in such a way that gave her chills. Seeing the hints he left her in his apartment, Lenora decides she must act. Quickly, she attempts to warn her family, and a neighbor. She is kind, and takes precautions for what she thinks is coming. There is a part where the reader will quickly release the kindness of Lenora's heart and her want to help those that can't help themselves.
I felt as though these two characters were the ones I would want to be friends with if I was a character in the book. I found myself answering what if questions during this quick book, and then researching what a solar flare could really do. Vannetta Chapman did a great job in providing realistic details that won't concern a reader but will make them curious. Readers that love books with suspense, thrilling dystopian style book will gravitate to this series and this prequel.
"Overshadowed" is a prequel to a series written by Vannetta Chapman, one that many (like myself) might not ever give a chance due to the followers that tend to swarm when one reads such novels. I saw this story on my list to read and was tempted to remove it, but somehow I accidentally clicked the wrong button and ended up downloading it anyways.
This story is about a world that is about to change forever. Everyone hears of the theories of how the world might end, and what can happen if we were to be without modern technology; however, no one is ever truly prepared for when that possibility becomes a reality. You will follow the beginning story of two important characters, one in the know, and one just learning the truth for the first time.
Will Americans survive what is to come?
This ebook also contains the first Chapter of Deep Shadows and a preview of The Raging Storm plus a note from the Author.
Overshadowed brings readers into the last few minutes just before the start of the solar flare.The display of colorful lights that painted the dark sky accompanied by the loss of electricity. The story leaves us there with special air force secret agent Gab Thomas. He's been dispatched to a small Texas town to help the residents to cope with the devastating effects that the solar flare will bring to the community. Why weren't the people warned of the approaching solar flare? How many Government leaders knew but failed to prepare the people?
I gave this book 5 stars because it takes readers to the threshold of the solar flare disaster. I liked the content of the ebook prequel and felt I was prepared then to read on into the series.
Overshadowed is a very good short story. It sets the stage for an action packed, life-sized adventure in the next books of the series. Reading the preview of Deep Shadows got me wanting more! I liked all the characters I read about and couldn't wait to start Deep Shadows after getting a taste of what was going to happen. Be sure to check out Overshadowed - a quick read, faith-filled, dystopian story that will have you grabbing for the next book in the series.
