It was an unexpected pleasure to read this short story and it has kept me thinking for several days afterwards about how I feel about the characters and trying to piece together what I think should or will happen next. This is a love triangle to rival the best of them, smoothly and subtly woven into a story which in itself is a small part of a larger picture.
The title 'Shadow of a Man' has a depth that kept me guessing all the way through as to which of the men it applied, and how. Like the story, in the title itself looms a larger mystery, and I'm dying to find out what happens next.
Highly recommended / 5 stars
Dominic has returned a changed man after being saved by Geo from imprisonment. He's now a womanizing drunk prone to violence who's alienating his wife through his actions. His actions have a bigger purpose though that is just hinted at here but appear to have far sweeping implications. Theresa is the kind of woman to stand by her man no matter what but she's confused by her feelings for the two men in her life who are both trying to keep her safe in their own ways. She's a bit naive about the harsh realities of the universe which puts her in danger while bringing her closer to Geo, whose job has been to guard her with his life. Geo has a secretive past that had him physically altering his looks so returning to Borealis puts him in jeopardy but doesn't stop him from sticking close to Theresa, the woman he's become attracted to and who stands by her after a heartbreaking event befalls them.
There's only a hint of romance in this story, a love triangle sanctioned by a man who knows Theresa deserves better. Considering how likable the characters are, even at their low moments, I wish we could've seen them on a more personal level. I wish too that Dominic's plan were clearer as his actions speak of a man determined to right some very big wrongs. Though this story leaves a lot of questions unanswered, the exciting and intriguing storyline has me wanting to revisit this enthralling world Ms. Hammarblad has created.
