I really stepped out of my realm when I chose Flight of Shadows by Sigmund Brouwer for a book review. Admittedly, I’m not a sci-fan fan, but I read some of his books several years ago and really enjoyed them, so I wanted to give this one a shot.
The writing is great, and the story is interesting. My only real complaint about the book was that I felt lost. I didn’t realize that it was the sequel to a previous book, and the book assumes that you already know a lot of the background and characters of this story. Set in a futuristic America, Flight of Shadows tells the story of Caitlyn, a young woman with very unique DNA thanks to genetic experimentation. In fact, it’s so unique that she’s running for her life, with the help of a few unusual, but loyal, friends. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of science fiction, but I would recommend reading the first book, Broken Angel, so you’ll have a deeper understanding of the characters and story.
