Genre: Fiction/Suspense/Christian fictionA novel combining strong message with suspense, THE SHADOW by Kimberly Rae @TheBlogAbout Click To Tweet
My take: What I liked most about The Shadow is the spotlight this novel shines on a very real problem of human trafficking, as well as the very real organization that purposes to be part of the real-life solution. This added an element of realism to the story.
The Shadow offers much of what you might expect in a suspense novel. Clear-cut good and bad guys. Ratcheting stakes. An overarching sense of menace amid a swiftly moving plot. It provides a good, clean fun for those who enjoy inspirational romantic suspense, with protagonists that are appealing, if somewhat familiar. It did strike me as a story geared for youthful readers, as it doesn’t have the emotional subtlety typically found in adult-targeted novels.
Recommended for fans of the genre who also appreciate an important message.
