Publisher's Summary

Earth is at war. Portals are opening across the planet and bringing creatures known as Outsiders. Their only desire is to eat, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. The only people who can stop them are the Defenders - led by Gareth Walker - who can open portals of their own to target the Outsiders in minutes. Gareth's only advantage is an ability to see glimpses of his future.
For the past decade the Defenders have held back the incursion, but now a new portal opens, bringing something that Gareth did not see coming. As he must find a way to stop this new threat, he starts a quest for answers. He must learn how the war began and find a way to stop them once and for all.
All the while, he is aware of a shadow in his future; a moment he can't see past. Will stopping the Outsiders cost him everything?

Became completely lost in this terrific book.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Science fiction, Adult but appropriate for YA.

OVERALL: I absolutely loved this book. The story and well developed characters drew me in. Ended up listening to this book in three days. I loved the characters, their back stories, their flaws and their strengths. As with any good book it was the characters that made this book great.

SEX AND PROFANITY: None, thank you. This book is appropriate for all ages. I plan on recommending this book to my teenage children.

Hungry mutant demons, whats not to love!

Would you consider the audio edition of Shadows of Tomorrow to be better than the print version?

I always consider the audio versions to be better. The narrators bring in an aspect to the stories that I couldn't come up with myself, and i can listen to them anywhere.

What did you like best about this story?

I love inter dimensional travel, and when you mix it with scary monsters, even better!

Which character – as performed by Jake Urry – was your favorite?

Probably Richard, Jake Urry just has that voice that is perfect for snooty "I know everything" types.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They've come, and they are hungry.....

Any additional comments?

I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher via audiobookboom for an unbiased review.

Shadows of tomorrow

What did you like best about this story?

Shadows of Tomorrow is an entertaining scifi novel which explores of what life might be like if you could see into your future. Looks so simple but it will turn out that time is not a single, unbroken, continuous forward line. Very interesting novel adding a superb narration

Interesting concepts used well

This book takes some interesting ideas such as alternate dimensions or realities, precognition and predestination and packages them into a book that seemed like a more human version of Pacific Rim.

In this book you still had the demonic-seeming invaders coming from another world through portals, but in this case those defending the earth needed to rely on their own strength and skill to fight them off rather than being more safely locked away in mechs as the casualties throughout clearly demonstrated.

I liked that the author shifted the first-person perspective from time to time as it helped me to get to know more of the characters than simply the main protagonist and the story felt all the stronger for that choice.

The narrator gave a good performance, nicely enhancing the overall story, even if I did expect some of the characters to have been quickly killed off as some of his voices sounded rather like Sean Bean.

Overall, I found this to be an interesting and enjoyable sci-fi novel suitably enhanced by good narration.

[I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.]
