Review of Cody McFadyen’s “Shadow Man”

Shadow Man (Smoky Barrett, #1)Shadow Man by Cody McFadyen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is without a single doubt my all-time favorite, one I have read again and again, a true source of inspiration on so many levels. 1: the writing is top-notch, intense, pulls you forward, urges you to read on. 2: it’s so full of emotions and gore and frantic action and suspense you’re constantly sweating and holding your breath as you turn the pages at ligthtning speed. 3: the main character is so alive you crawl into her skin and feel her pain and think her thoughts before they’re even put to paper.

I want more of this, so much more, and although the sequels are very well done, I have yet to read a book that’s shaken me so thoroughly and torn, stolen my soul as I was engulfed in the story and taken away to a different world. Whoooo! I’d give it 10 stars if I could. But beware – it’s not for the soft-hearted.
