Movie Critique - High Sierra

Stars: 5 / 5

Recommendation: Movie that changed careers; gave the viewers entertainment; shows shades of grey of humanity; all along travelling through a well-knit and well-directed plot.

Book Critique - Shadow Flight (The Shadow Series #5)

For review of all books in The Shadow Series: Go here.

Stars: 3.5 / 5

Recommendation: You believe in super powers, abilities and the good that one can do with it, then this is the series you should read. Of course it comes with loads of eroticism, strong women, and brave men.

Shadow Flight is the fifth book in The Shadow Series by Christine Feehan published in May of 2020. The plot is again set in Chicago where the Ferraros have marked their territory and begins two years after the previous book, Shadow Warrior. 

The central plot revolves around the fifth sibling and brother - Taviano Ferraro - and Nicoletta Gomez - who was saved from a brutal gang in New York by the Ferraros in the very first book, The Shadow Rider. We have been waiting for their tale as much as we have been waiting for Emmanuelle's, the final sibling, in the series. Now we get to see Taviano and Nicoletta's in this book.
