Flight of Shadows
Flight of Shadows by Sigmund Brouwer is the sequel to Broken Angel by the same, but it stands well on its own. Caitlyn and her friends have managed to escape the theocracy of Appalachia, but the world Outside is just as harsh to those with differences. What will Caitlyn decide about her deformity--to keep it and the risk that comes with it, or to get rid of it?
I actually pereferred this book to its prequel because it did a better job of getting inside the character's heads and giving the reader an emotional attachment. It is a beautiful blending of suspense and sci-fi--think the Maximium Ride series with a dash of Ted Dekker, but much better planned than Patterson's books. 4/5 stars
I recieved a free copy of this book through Waterbrook's Blogging for books program but was not required to write a positive review.
