Flight of Shadows

Imagine that genetic research had been done on you, before you were born. You are different from everyone around you. You are searching for answers. This is the situation Caitlyn Brown faces in Flight of Shadows. On the one hand, she revels in her ability to fly. On the other, it makes her a target. Follow Caitlyn as she struggles to find her place in the world.

At first, I didn't realize that this book was a sequel, and this may explain why I felt somewhat disoriented in the first few chapters. The world is well crafted, but it took me a bit to feel fully grounded in it. The book is clearly written from a Christian world view. The over-arching theme is an exploration of genetic research and its implications, and there is some biblical discussion by several characters.

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, interesting read. It left me thinking about the implications of genetic research in a new way. I recommend this book to science fiction readers. I also recommend this book to those who are curious about exploring the arguments against genetic research. This book delves into the issue in a thoughtful, non-pushy way.

Go here to read Chapter 1 of this intriguing book.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
