I Become Shadow; Joe Shine

I Become ShadowI Become Shadow by Joe Shine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ren's voice is the best part about the book and what lifted it from a two to three star. The premise isn't a bad one, but the execution is somewhat lacking. Too much time spent on the training, and when the Link happens it just didn't seem to fit with that. Even worse is the last part, with Ren trying to save Gareth and go against what F.A.T.E. decrees. Part of me suspects there will be a sequel, and that the plot issues are because of the need to both pad (to fill two books) and edit (what plot points go where).
