I liked the premise of this book. It had the feel of the movie "Phone Booth" but with a heck of lot more grit, action, suspense, and of course cool Sci-Fi worlds and people.
Our hero Veil, receives a phone call from Nikki whom is being held prisoner and her cell phone only calls him. (Reminiscent of "Cellular".)
I may have made movie references but it was done to give you, the reader, a frame of reference because this story moves a good pace and you have to keep up with it.
I really liked this story, the descriptive was on the mark, the character building and interaction flows smoothly, and ending flipped my brain.
The fierce bald looking man and some others radiating blue laser blasts are now tracking him down. They take on an entire police force and kill an F.B.I. agent before Veil decides to hop a plane and rescue his princess. To save her, he must not only find and free her but he has to get her away from the “out of this world” men in dark trench coats.
Now, Veil and his princess Nikki discover they are linked in more ways than just the cell phone. She is his princess and he is her lead. Together they must reclaim and rule a distant world and fight off an army of Shadow Warriors. The ending was a twist I was not expecting!
Shadow Wars is a creatively written science fiction book with some romance. The character development was well done; she made all the characters come to life for me. The story line flowed easily and was consistent. Nikki and Veil came across as very strong characters that are visibly growing.
Todd Van Linda did a good job of narrating for the most part. I did not enjoy his rendition of the sex scenes. He was a bit enthusiastic and noisy. I found myself laughing. Otherwise I thought he did a good job.
The production of this book was a bit confusing at times. Words were repeated and at times spoken too quickly as if it were on fast forward. I do not believe this was Todd Van Linda’s performance but rather technical.

After Veil finishes his lunch he realizes someone has lost their cell phone. When know one lays claim to it, he decides to leave it at the hostess station in case some one comes to back for it. While making his way to the front of the restaurant to leave the pone, he realizes that there is some one on the line and she's asking for his help. After Listening to the woman's story about her abduction he promises to get her help and heads to the nearest police station not knowing that this one decision will drastically change both of their lives and forever bind them together.
NIkki and Veil's story was a very enjoyable one. While trying to figure out the mystery behind Nikki's abduction these to perfect strangers find that they are actually better together than they ever were apart. I love how Veil became very protective over Nikki without knowing exactly why he felt that way. Nikki's trust in Veil to keep her safe no matter the circumstances created a bond between the two them that was very heartwarming for me. Also, I loved the narrator of this story. Todd Van Linda makes for a wonderful storyteller. This story had all, mystery, drama, romance, betrayal. All the elements that make for a great story. I look forward to seeing what's up next for these two there's bound to be more drama in their future. Yes, it ends in a cliffhanger.
One ordinary day suddenly became a day full of revelations for Veil and Nikki.
Veil finds a phone, from then on everything changed. He was fighting for his life and the life of the owner of the sweet voice on the phone. Veil and Nikki get together to find the truth which would completely change their lives forever.
They fall in love but the world that they have been introduced to would not allow them to be together.
The ideas and thoughts in books and stories that include or have extra-terrestrial beings as the main character need to be well developed. The details should walk hand in hand with the main theme of the book. I would say that Shadow Wars: Homebound very nearly succeeded in that arena though there are some facts that needed to be a little more clarified. The star systems and planets in them, the hierarchy of it all was confusing at first.
The premise was cute but it wasn’t what interested me so much about this book. It reminded me more of a movie line. A guy finds a phone and sets out to save the girl in the phone. But from the moment the truth of their lives was revealed it really picked up. The need to see how it played out held up until the end.
It was descriptive and very intelligently thought out ideas. This is a must read for those who enjoy the Sci-Fi genre.
