A Heart-Stopping Thriller!
Hailey Maniates was a tall and beautiful third year grad student majoring in Biochemistry. One night, after returning to her lab, she is pursued by someone or something. Terrified, she runs through Golden Gate Park where she is rescued by a very tall homeless man. She can't understand it, but she can read his mind and she can feel his emotions. He sprints her to the hospital, and leaves her to explain her story. Even though Hailey thinks this is due to the shock from the trauma, the doctors feel it is something more. Hailey is put in a mental institution and is medicated for her hallucinations. She knows she's not crazy, and must find the very tall homeless man to find out what happened and get her many questions answered. What really did pursue Hailey? Why did she think she saw herself being chased through the attackers eyes? How could she feel the thought and emotions of the homeless "giant"? What was happening to her? Was she really just the crazy person her doctors diagnosed her to be?
I had read the second book of this series, "Powers", first, and was a little concerned that I may have ruined this first book. Not at all!! From the beginning, "Shade" pulled me in. Masterfully written, it's full of mystery and intrigue and heart-stopping, spine-tingling terror. Olson wrote a fantastic page-turner that scared the pants off me! His characters have depth and memorable qualities that I won't easily forget, nor will I be comfortable being alone in the dark for a long time to come!!

i really love this book .... at its start it is a classic vampire storie .. but in the 21st century people don't believe in monsters .. that is about where it leaves it and becomes a great storie of GOD'S love and the true saving power of CHRIST JESUSWas this review helpful?

Shade is Amazing
This book is set in San Francisco and the places are familiar to me. That adds to the sense of mystery and danger, but anyone would be drawn into the scary story and identify with Hailey. It's nice to read something with nuances of the supernatural that's not just another vampire book, but something totally original. The ending is positive and satisfying, but left me wondering what would happen to the characters in the future. A sequel may be on the horizon.Was this review helpful?

This book is really good.
This book in the beginning is a little slow but after the first chapter or two, it will grab you and not let go. There are parts in the book that are psychologically thrilling and make you question your own sanity or your idea of what is real and what is fake. I think this book has many twists that will keep you keep thinking about it for days after you read it. The main characters are well developed and you can feel for them. There are some points where you can get the minor characters mixed up, but only a couple times. It keeps you on you feet until the very end. The ending is a little disappointing but it wraps the story up in a bow.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was amazing. I started it on a Saturday night and finished it the next day. John B. Olson did a fantastic job hooking me into his characters. I absolutely loved Melchi. His tortured existence was so entrancing. I love characters like that. Great read!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
