creatively written science fiction + Romance

Ursula Sinclair’s Shadow Wars: Homebound is a creative and interesting story about two people meeting via technology and by all reasoning, accidentally. Veil, a young adopted male living in the U.S. finds a unique cell phone. Face-time capabilities he discovers a beautifully stunning woman answering the phone. Nikki has been kidnapped, her phone only dials the one phone which he holds in his hands and a bald fierce looking man is holding her prisoner in England.

The fierce bald looking man and some others radiating blue laser blasts are now tracking him down. They take on an entire police force and kill an F.B.I. agent before Veil decides to hop a plane and rescue his princess. To save her, he must not only find and free her but he has to get her away from the “out of this world” men in dark trench coats.

Now, Veil and his princess Nikki discover they are linked in more ways than just the cell phone. She is his princess and he is her lead. Together they must reclaim and rule a distant world and fight off an army of Shadow Warriors. The ending was a twist I was not expecting!

Shadow Wars is a creatively written science fiction book with some romance. The character development was well done; she made all the characters come to life for me. The story line flowed easily and was consistent. Nikki and Veil came across as very strong characters that are visibly growing.

Todd Van Linda did a good job of narrating for the most part. I did not enjoy his rendition of the sex scenes. He was a bit enthusiastic and noisy. I found myself laughing. Otherwise I thought he did a good job.

The production of this book was a bit confusing at times. Words were repeated and at times spoken too quickly as if it were on fast forward. I do not believe this was Todd Van Linda’s performance but rather technical.

What made the experience of listening to Shadow Wars: Homebound the most enjoyable?

The story and characters!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Wars: Homebound?

When Veil finally finds out his purpose and meets his dad!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was a C+...the editing needed work...and the sex scenes were weird....The voices were pretty good....

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have....the middle was a little dull...but overall this is a good story!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Veil and Nikki are from another planet...not knowing this, they have lived fairly normal lives on earth. Well it all gets a little crazy for these 2 and they are swept up in a dangerous adventure...Veil rescues Nikki and they are on the run! They fall for each other which is inevitable and when they learn there true identities they are shocked...but not even bloodlines and boundaries will keep these 2 apart...and we get a great ending!! I hope there is a book 2....because I would totally listen to it!!!

Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
