"The plot of SHADOW GAMES will keep readers on the edge of their seats.Falconer's action scenes are full of suspense, and make our hearts pound just as if we too were evading the bad guys. Falconer is at his best when it comes to describing Emily's "jumps" and the futuristic technology she encounters. He has a keen eye, and his attention to detail allows us to feel as if, we too, have supernatural abilities and are struggling, like Emily, to figure out how to control them. Whether we are right next to the young heroine as she dodges bullets on the street or the stress of landing naked on a busy Phoenix street, Falconer is able to make the reader feel what Emily is feeling, allowing for plenty of empathy. There are no cardboard cut-outs in SHADOW GAMES, and each character in the novel has their own flaws and quirks, which makes for a fascinating read. SHADOW GAMES is an engaging science-fiction romp that gives a nuanced portrayal of the cost of having preternatural abilities." ~IndieReader Book Reviews
"I loved Shadow Games. Loved. It. How's that for a review. I was sucked into this story almost from the very first page and I could not put the book down until it was done. Author Jay J. Falconer has a true gift in writing in the paranormal genre and has provided his readers with a creative and unique story that is unlike any they have read before. His characterizations are vivid, his world creation skills are simply second to none, and his ability to write a suspenseful, edge of your seat kind of tale is fantastic! It's easy for me to give this book my highest recommendation, and I very much look forward to reading more in this incredibly promising series by author Jay J. Falconer in the near future." ~Reviewed By Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite Book Reviews.

From the Author
When I began this series, I initially wanted to create a lovable teenage homeless girl who was struggling to survive life on the streets. What I ended up with was something completely different. Emily Heart came alive on the pages and touched my heart, leading me down a path of self-discovery right along with her. She's not just a 15-year-old girl who's burdened with an uncontrollable time jumping condition. She's a deeply caring, powerfully strong young lady with an unwavering will to survive. She has rules that she lives by, but finds that sometimes rules must be broken, even if it means that she might become too emotional and simply blink out of existence. Finding love is dangerous for everyone, but for Emily Heart it can mean the end of all that she is.Life on this planet isn't fun or fair for most of us, but for Emily Heart, life is all she wants. Fair or unfair, just making it through another day is reward enough.
