THE MOST DIFFICULT THING TO DO…
Imagine knowing your family hates you and has no problem sending you away to be abused – to die alone. Randy Reynolds was living that reality until he was saved by a man called Shadow. What Randy learned about himself and the people who were supposed to love him was nothing short of horrific. What he found with the Sentinels and Shadow was everything miraculous.
IS FACE THE TRUTH
Jake Kennedy’s past haunts him. Ghosts drove him into the shadows until he became Shadow. Unseen and not really there, he lived his life without any connections but for the Sentinels, the team that saved him from oblivion. Then a mission changed his life and forced him to shed the shroud that kept his heart from feeling. Now, for Randy Reynolds, Jake will come out of the shadows, he’ll be present and whole instead of the man who had kept himself hidden for twenty years.
The artist and his sentinel
Grady asked Shadow to find his little brother Randy because of what their father said to him. Shadow finally found Randy and was in bad shape from what the person holding him captive did to him. He got Randy out just in time. Before he was rescued Randy the fellowship a present that was brilliant, it made him a target but that was taken away. Randy and Shadow fell for each other! Great book! Love this series!
Ok...this was my least favorite of the series. I was hoping to love it since I enjoyed Grady so much, but this was a let down.
The story was very rushed and had a lot of holes. Forgotten brother with the eidetic memory, sold to a crooked organization of conversion therapists. Because of his skill, he was made to keep the books for the overlord. It felt like Shawshank Redemption meets Charlie’s Angels meets hand maids tale. Disjointed storyline that feels like an afterthought. We heard so much about Shadow’s ability to blend into the background in previous books, yet the author hurried through the explanation for this quality. Randy seemed whiny and the Grady in this book seemed weak. I may be unnecessarily Gary on Randy, but the rational for the strain between him and Grady seemed was weak. I really enjoyed the series, so this was a bummer for me, I found myself skimming most of the pages because I did not find many redeeming qualities in Randy and was disappointed in the cavalier approach to Shadow’s story.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
