Review of Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth (Episode 1)
Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth is the first episode of a serialised book series.
It has a very good backstory which balances well with driving the plot forward with the events of the book.
It has diverse characters with Auren, (a typical teenager who wants to rebel against her foster father, Kado’s protective grasp) Jade, (Auren’s friend who has led a very sheltered life) Deaken (Auren’s other friend who knows how to fight and wants to make his own decisons) and Kado (who has a duty to protect and guide Auren whatever the cost.)
I like the shamanic qualities of the Shadow Stalkers and their rulers, (of want of a better word) the Shadow People. It is good that the Shadow Stalkers are not all powerful and that delving into the shadow world holds it’s own dangers.
The story has a good climatic ending which makes it obvious that it is not over and there is more instalments to come.
All in all, a great book that is definitely worth reading. I can’t wait for the episodes to come.
