Flight of Shadows
by Sigmund Brouwer
Her genetic secret could change humanity forever. Her DNA grants her the ultimate power. But all she wants is to disappear. Looming buildings rise into the sky of a near-future America, shadowing the desperate poverty of the soovie parks, death doctors, and fear bombs. In this world of walled cities, where status matters most, Caitlyn Brown is desperate to remain invisible, wrongly believing what she needs to hide is the deformity on her back. The powerful want her for so much more. She’s forced to take flight again, relying on the help of Razor, a street-smart illusionist she can’t trust. Her only hope is to reach friends already tracked by government. With a twisted bounty hunter in full pursuit, she and Razor begin to learn the unthinkable about her past and the unique gifts of her DNA. It leads Caitlyn to a choice between the two men who love her, and whether to keep her freedom or sacrifice herself to change human destiny. In this lightning-fast chase through an all-too-plausible future, best-selling author Sigmund Brouwer is at his best. Flight of Shadows is a terrifying ride into the heart of compelling moral questions about science and society.

Praise for Flight of Shadows
“Flight of Shadows is as haunting as it is intense. Brouwer keeps the pages turning in this deftly written sequel that engages the intellect and paints a frightening picture of a near-future world where the boundaries of morality are tested…and broken.” —JEREMY ROBINSON, author of Antarktos Rising and Pulse
I think reading the first book in this series would have helped a lot with this one. The book was slow going for me, just took me a while getting into it. Caitlyn is trying to escape government officals and bounty hunters because of her power to heal illnesses. This power came from a science experiment that wasn’t suppose to work, she was suppose to die like the other, but she didn’t. There are a lot of characters to get to know in this book, which was sometimes difficult, but still was an enjoyable book for me to read.
For you fantasy christian fiction readers, you will love Flight of Shadows. The fast-pace thriller with all of the many characters will have your heart in a spin.
