Shadow Wolves by Jake Kaminski is a chilling sojourn into a dark world, where humanity is laid bare in extremes of both good and evil. Ethan Crowe, a Lakota Indian, is an incredibly honed weapon of warfare who has seen more than his share of horror, from the genocide of Catholics and Muslims in Bosnia, through to the war on drugs in Thailand. Now, having suffered an incredible loss, he has withdrawn to Italy in an effort to find a peace that has long eluded him. Just when he believes he may have found a life worth living, Ethan is once again called on to join the battle against the Zetas, a deadly drug cartel based in Mexico. From his base in Southern Arizona, Ethan knows he is at war yet again; a war against an enemy just as ruthless and cold-blooded as any he has faced. Will his team of highly trained Indian trackers survive this battle, or will Ethan’s story be etched in blood on the sun-baked sand of the Sonoran Desert?
Jake Kaminski’s Shadow Wolves is an incredibly gripping read that is almost impossible to put down until the final climax has played out. The characters are very special, with each being uniquely carved from a wide range of social environments, leading to a world full of diversity that closely matches reality. I particularly enjoyed the Apache twins and their relationship with each other, and the bonds forming between them and Ethan. The way the story wrapped up made me want much more of Nalin Chee and the promise of a future that may unfold with Crowe. This is a top-notch book that will appeal to those wanting fast-paced action, molded with a perfect mix of emotions and excitement on a grand scale. One of the best books I have read.
