Publisher's Summary

Someone is keeping watch over the machine. Should it ever have been built?
The lure of the find behind the loose hearthstone at Hazleton House was too great. The schematic excited Evan, Reenie, and Ivy for different reasons, but it is Kayla who actually begins building it. Her ability to focus to the exclusion of all else is just one of the effects of her Asperger's.
The scribbled initials, E. W., were merely a curiosity, until it's discovered they belong to Eli Whitney. But strange footprints and disturbing visitors let Evan know that the theft of his sister's prize schematic isn't just a coincidence.
It becomes obvious that the generator has no apparent power source. And Eli Whitney was only the first to die because of the machine.
Soon, they realize their enemies are much bigger than they had imagined, and the threat the device poses could topple an empire. The secret now threatens those at Hazleton House.
Who is trying to stop them?

Unique storyline

AJ Scudiere has done homework! The Shadow Constant opens with a find not unlike an archeological dig. An old house, a secret compartment hidden for years, a discovery too great for big brother to let loose...

I was instantly drawn into the story and thoroughly enjoyed the historical value. One of the main characters has Aspergers, and the author was inclusive of each character’s uniqueness without making me feel like I was listening to an PC novel. Thank you for that!

John Thompson does an awesome job as narrator and switches characters flawlessly. I would definitely listen to him again.

Overall, The Shadow Constant was a great listen. I found myself eager to be alone in the car so I could listen more often ;)

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review.
