The Long:I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Emily is on the run again—and things might be better that way. Though she’s just a teenager, she holds many secrets—including that she’s a highly trained assassin. But when her dying guardian’s final wish forces her to meet with a detective, both her life and the detective’s hang in the balance.
This was an intense read from the start. I enjoyed the tight writing style and the fast pace that was maintained throughout. I also enjoyed the length of the book—it was nice and short, perfect for an afternoon read.
Emily’s past holds many secrets. While some were revealed in this book, I also look forward to learning more about her in the upcoming novels. She’s a very likeable character, as well.
Detective Tacket is also likeable. I can’t relate to her much as of yet, but I think that I’ll really enjoy her character once the series gets going.
There’s a hint of Christianity in this book, and I’m interested to see where the author will take the message of her story.
The Bottom Line: Out of the Shadows is a fast-paced read that introduces what looks to be a great Christian sci-fi series.
