Alexis (Lexi) Stone is a brand-new T-FLAC operative who might be in over her head but she’s willing to take on any assignment. Right now she’s in Russia, trying to outrun some bad guys over the rooftops of the city. In a firefight, she wonders why some disintegrate after she shoots them. Little does she know what it is that she’s stumbled across.


Alexander Stone, T-FLAC operative in the psi division and brother of the heroine in The Mercenary, is in Russia, as well. He’s even in Lexi’s room at the safe house, unaware that it’s Lexi’s room. Alex is unaware that Lexi is an operative, since last he saw her was in the Research Department at T-FLAC HQ.


Alex and Lexi end up team mates in trying to determine where the wizards, that disintegrate when shot, are coming from and what T-FLAC discovers is enough to curl your hair! But that’s just the tip of the iceberg and what a ride Ms. Adair gives us!


Night Shadow by Cherry Adair is the final book in the Night series and with one small complaint, this book did what I needed it to do – it satisfyingly wrapped up the mystery that Ms. Adair had created and gave everyone a happily ever after. My small complaint is Lexi. While on missions, Lexi had this horrendously bad habit of mentally running through all the procedures she thought were being broken. Plus she’s such a chatterbox, it can be annoying. However, by the end of the book, she redeemed herself quite nicely! I felt terrible for Alex, Simon and Lucas when they discovered the treachery, deviousness, greed and murderous nature of the man they thought of as “Father”. It was nice to see Simon & Kess from Night Fall and Lucas & Sydney from Night Secrets. It was especially nice to see some of the wonderful characters from the Edge series, namely Duncan Edge and Lark. Well done, Ms. Adair! Thanks!
