Goodreads reviewer, Megan S. says:

"Shadow," the second instalment in Craig Ford's Foresight series, delves deeper into the enigmatic past of the character Shadow, first introduced in the inaugural book of the series. Seamlessly continuing the narrative, the novel unravels a compelling tale centred around the inaugural mission shared by Foresight and Shadow.

Ford's deliberate choice of a young female protagonist challenges the conventional male-dominated paradigm within the genre. Set against an Australian backdrop, this deliberate setting adds a unique dimension that distinguishes "Shadow" from its contemporaries. The juxtaposition of a strong female lead and a locally rooted narrative establishes a remarkable divergence that enhances the overall narrative experience.

Skillfully employing the art of suspense, Ford masterfully crafts "Shadow" with an array of concise and precisely constructed chapters. This approach heightens the tension and intrigue, compelling readers to eagerly turn each page in anticipation of the next revelation. The expertly woven structure not only mirrors the unfolding mystery but also serves as a testament to Ford's skilful storytelling prowess.

Intricately weaving character development, plot progression, and thematic exploration, Ford's adept guidance through a landscape of suspense, intrigue, and discovery is further accentuated by the strategic utilization of these succinct chapters. By deftly intertwining the personal histories of the characters with the broader scope of their mission, "Shadow" immerses its audience in a richly layered tale that resonates beyond the confines of its pages.

In conclusion, "Shadow" not only advances the Foresight series but also contributes to the evolution of the genre itself. Ford's meticulous craftsmanship, combined with the novel's distinctive blend of character dynamics, local flavour, and the artful use of concise chapters, culminate in a literary work that captivates and elevates the reader's engagement.

For enthusiasts of the genre seeking a refreshing and thought-provoking narrative, "Shadow" unquestionably merits consideration.
