I was reading the game is life series... This came up as the next book. Completely unrelated. I honestly can't even believe is the same writer. Dialogue is so juvenile the plot is slow and now what I was hoping for at all. I don't understand who the worrying itself, i.e. Narration, scene set up, descriptions and dialogue are SOOOO terrible. It's like this was written by a clueless ghost writer.
Slow start but great
By Brandon Thaggard
It had a slow start. A lot of detail and pre story to tell before the story got interesting. I have to say I felt I knew the ending and I was pretty accurate until the last chapter. As always, he threw a curve ball! A must read
Outstanding book. Always pushes my perceptions
I love all the books I have read so far by Terry Schott. I enjoyed seeing a few characters from the game in this story. It's a very interesting idea on how he world is run behind the scenes and introduces a new "game" idea. I love how he writes about sci-fi ideas in a way that makes you question how really fictional it might be. I frequently find myself wondering if we are all in fact part of any or all of these stories.
Although not directly related to the game series it's a great tie in. I highly recommend reading this story after reading at least book 1 of The Game.
" Shadows" - 5+++ stars!
Terry Schott continues to be my favorite author. "Shadows" is a must read for all gamers. I cannot wait to see where this story evolves!
So after i finished the game series, Or whats out atm, i was sad. That series had me reading every chance i got. Figured anything he puts oit is worth reading and wow this book stunned me! I love place and time its set! I always wanted to know more about Mr Thorne, and this is a great way to do it. Plus this book led me to "Ingress" a game very similiar to shepards that i now find myself playing every chance i get! People often ask me what "shearing" is when im playing ingress with friends and all i can do is laugh and say "read the books" starting from the game!

It was amazing and I can't wait for the next
Not very exciting like the game series
I bought this book for $5 and expecting it to be based off of the game series and be very exciting, but instead what I found was Sampson Thorne in it- which is kind of confusing because this book is not related to the game series- and this book is very boring. I could not get into it and keep reading like I could with the game series. What makes it a little boring is that the game SHEPERDS is just a game where you tap buttons on a screen and you would make the salary that the average person would make. It is just not the story I hoped it would be. And I also want to know when the 6th game series book will come out. We readers were left on a huge cliff hanger there that is exciting.
