ON A REVIEW SITE:
The author asked me to read this book without reading the first in the series. I agreed with a bit of apprehension. I LOVE series and the thought of messing it up always bugs me.
I accidentally read the second book in the Trylle Trilogy before the first one…I still haven’t recovered!
I was happy to find out that this book read fine on its own. However, there were a few times when I felt like I was *missing* something. For example, when Gideon was spotted I felt a little lost.
Overall I feel that you can definitely read this book on its own but if you are anything like me you will want to go back and read the first book! Which is not a bad thing at all =)
I really liked this book because the characters were all so relatable. Usually I can only connect to the main character and maybe one other supporting character. That is usually a big maybe.
With this book all of the characters are literally jumping off the page. I loved it.
I think anyone would enjoy this series, even if you aren’t a science fiction fan. The way the futuristic elements are introduced is very natural and not wordy or descriptive.
The last thing that I thought was really well done was all of the story lines flowing together so seamlessly. Usually when I read a book that has so many things going on, most of them just conveniently disappear without any real resolution. Not the case with this book!
About the only con I can think of is the fact that book three isn’t out yet!
Highly recommend to anyone!
The sequel to A Shadow in the Flames comes to Kindle!
Save humanity from itself. It is the goal of the worldwide conspiracy known as the Agents of Aeneas. For months they have struggled to unlock the secrets of an alien spacecraft buried on the Moon. Now word of that craft has leaked, and multiple groups plot to seize it for themselves.

While Agent Michael Flynn protects him from those who believe that he knows too much, together they must find a demon from Michael’s past: the freelancer Diomedes. Michael’s violent ex-mentor, Diomedes murdered a man at the heart of the spacecraft’s discovery. They must learn why.
Meanwhile the vigilante Gideon, slain by Diomedes six months ago, has been seen alive in the city of Northgate. His baffling return will draw two women into dangers far beyond those that lurk in the city.
Memories that haunt them all will entangle their fates as one in the blackness.
