The Shadow King is a story about a group of young kids who are trying to survive in a world that has been taken over by "shadows". They must do whatever it takes to survive in the wasteland of a world.
A book that's over before it even begins. I think this would be a good "episode 1" or "book 0.5" in a full series. Granted there are some things that you wouldn't want to come out in the first book that came out in this book.
I do enjoy short stories, novellas, and novelettes more than most people do, but this one felt a little too short for me. I honestly thought that it was just getting into the good stuff and it ended. Granted, it had an ending of sorts, but it still felt rushed. I'm not sure if Lozar ended it like this on purpose or if they have thoughts of doing more with the story later (I think there's something here). It had a Lord of the Flies meets I Am Legend feel to it.
The narration of The Shadow King was done by Quinn Lozar who voices the characters pretty well. The story was fast paced and his narration definitely moved it along.
Overall, an enjoyable short book. I definitely don't regret the hour that I spent listening to this.
The Shadow King is an urban thriller, garnished with a hint of supernatural sci-fi. An action-filled adventure that packs a punch considering its brief length. Narration by Quinn Lozar (the author's son, maybe?) speaks slowly but with enthusiasm, and enunciates clearly. There's a small number of mispronouned words, but my understanding of the context was in no way negatively affected. Overall, enjoyable.
