Review of Shadow Stalker: The Delohi-Saqu’s Fate (Episode 2)
Shadow Stalker: The Delohi-Saqu’s Fate is the second episode of a serialised book series.
I love how this episode delves more into the Shadow Stalkers with what they can do and how do they do it.
I like how their abilities are all mental and not physical and the shadow world is very shadowy (hence shadow world) and misty were people appear like visions. It combines very well with the likeness to shamans. I also liked the use of special water which helps ease a shadow stalker into the shadow world.
The characters are very well portrayed with building on the personalities of the characters we saw in the first episode and the introduction of new characters in this one.
I loved how Kado pushed her in the deep end in the forest yet helped and protected her when she utterly failed. He is like a father figure to her but knows he has to keep his distance and not get emotionally attached to her.
Overall, a great sequel which builds upon the first episode and the leaves the reader hungering for the third. Get writing the next one, Renee.
