When a pool hustler picks up a runaway teen to safely escort her to her father, they end up on a life-changing adventure in the sensational novel, Shadows Unveiled by Amanda Berthault. Although Shadow Mckinley had a painful childhood, singing was a balm to his soul. Shadow started a heavy metal band that became a mild sensation. However, the expectations and recognition from his fans were too much for him, and Shadow faked his own death. Changing his name to Shanley and picking up the trade his father taught him, he traveled from town to town hustling pool. In a twist of fate, Shanley meets fourteen-year-old runaway Macy who suffered the same abuse at home as he did. Deciding to take Macy to her father in California, Shanley hopes to make her life better. Unfortunately, Shanley forgets his obligation for a moment, resulting in them becoming fugitives of the law. What will become of them? Will they ever find happiness?
Filled with adventure and a little action, Shadows Unveiled by Amanda Berthault is an outstanding novel. The brilliant plot and the storyline's twists and turns kept me guessing until the end. Macy's and Shadow's characters are so genuine and relatable it was easy to connect with them. I was on pins and needles as the story progressed, wondering how it would end for Shadow. I enjoyed observing how Macy's and Shadow's characters evolved and, eventually, healed. The storyline has an exciting plot that steadily increases in drama and intensity, finally coming to a stunning finale. This riveting novel will delight everyone from fourteen to a hundred who loves adventures with a feel-good ending.
