Shadows contains a well thought out mystery that includes the timely issue of government surveillance and how much is too much. Both of the main characters are very likable, and Spring's personality adds to the story. Overall, a very good read.
Main premise for the series is the private security group called Black Raven which is owned and run by Sebastian Connelly. When the federal prison they were setting up security for is hacked and a group of prisoners escape Sebastian mission is to make sure all the prisoners are recaptured and returned especially Richard Barrows who was serving time for tax evasion but is also one the world smartest men but also a huge conspiracy theorist. The author lets us as the reader know there is a lot more going on that just a prison break but Sebastian and his team don’t believe that’s it anything more than a man who wanted out of prison.
Richard has two daughters. One is as smart as he is and the other suffers from a few different disorders. When Skye gets a message from her father she knows bad things are about to happen and tries to take her sister and run. Before they can get away Sebastian and his team catch up to them and things go from bad to worse as someone wants the girls to use as leverage to make their father give up codes to a program that would have devastating consequences if in the wrong hands.
The concept of a private security group isn’t a new one but how this group is run had a lot of unique things about it that made it different. The two main leads – Skye and Sebastian were defiantly not your normal romantic suspense couple.
I was impressed with the first book I read from this author and looked forward to her second book and I wasn’t disappointed. She writes stories full of intrigue and fast paced plots that keep you on the edge of your set.
Cataclysm. Run. Now! And run they did.
Skye had enough on her plate without receiving the cryptic message. The message to turn her colorful and carefully piloted world upside down, and then that man stepped in to rock the now unstable foundation.
Sebastian is a no nonsense, take no prisoners, my way or the highway kind of in control man. His mission should have been made easier when he located his targets children, but after such a bright start, it went down hill fast. And not only does he have to track a fugitive, and face a mad man, but he's in serious danger of loosing the heart he won't admit he has.
This is a great read. I screamed at my kindle, a couple times. That means I was into the characters. I lost sleep, because I wanted to make it to the end of the chapter, but kept right on going. That means I was into the story. I laughed, gasped and cried in the right places. That means it was a GOOD story.
I'm looking forward to JIGSAW. Cannot wait to see what trouble Zeus will find himself in at the hands of the diabolical Stella Barcelona.
Thanks Stella, for adding to my world.
