Review of Shadow Stalker: The Delohi-Saqu’s Fate (Episode 2)
Episode 2 of Shadow Stalker The Delohi-saqu’s Fate, is truly an amazing fantasy story that holds an interesting mentor and apprentice relationship. Scattergood shows off her mysterious new fantasy creature (shadow stalker), with action and creativity that is truly all her own.
Episode 2, takes place on the Dark Isle, the home of the shadow stalkers. On the island Kado begins Auren’s training in how to use her shadow stalker abilities; through a series of deadly lessons. After, each lesson Auren learns new information about her abilities and what Kado has done to protect her over the years.
The relationship between Auren and Kado is an interesting one. Auren plays the role of a strong female lead who has to take in a lot of new information and does fairly well. She does fall victim to her emotions on occasion though. While, Kado plays the role of the strict, but caring mentor. He has many secrets that he keeps from Auren that make him feel conflicted and she feels confused, do to his inability to express himself appropriately.
I would have to strongly state that, Shadow Stalker The Delohi’s Fate, is definitely worth the read. But, just in case you’re not aware, episode 1, The Hidden Truth, is free to download at Smashwords.com. And if the word free doesn’t get your attention then here is a review supplied by my fellow DKC Team-member Kathryn Jenkins. I’m sure that you’ll enjoy reading them just as much as I did, and become hungry for episode 3 next month.
