Michael G. Munz
A Shadow in the Flames by Michael G. Munz is a futuristic, sci-fi novel cram packed with action, adventure and mystery. When Michael Flynn thought things couldn¿t get worse than being an unemployed security guard, down to his last few bucks, they did. He shared an apartment with his friend and now mentor Diomedes, well until it was blown up by the arsonist.<BR/><BR/>This is where the story begins. Diomedes connects with an old acquaintance after being approached by an unknown man with the information to help find out who blew up their home. Michael is now Romulus, and the year is 2051 and they¿re out to get the man known as Wraith. But there are some things that Michael/Romulus didn¿t know about his friend Diomedes¿ but he will soon discover more than he could ever hope to know. <BR/><BR/>From there the book speeds by, it was such a fast read while following Romulus, Felix, and Diomedes in their search. I should put this in as well, it kind of pulls the story together. Within the moon, something is buried and there are those sent to recover/ discover the foreign item. But they would be doing more than just digging, they will be watching and waiting! Then there are a few other secondary characters throughout the novel that you have to keep an eye on. I know it sounds like there is a ton of things going on at once, and there are but it is so well blended together you don¿t get lost! <BR/><BR/>Everything was so detailed, and in my opinion the technology and timeline was well laid out. The characters were three dimensional in a way, showing compassion, worry, fear, and just easy to connect with. Munz has me wondering if a second book is to come, if it is be prepared for the sci-fi book of the season. 5 Hearts<BR/><BR/>Contact Michael: www.myspace.com/michaelgmunz
