Electromagnetic pulses began a catastrophe that changed the world as we know it.
The next round of destruction brought monsters from hell that almost wiped out civilization. The third wave sent a new breed of monster into the mix called Shadow Warriors capable of killing hellhounds. Two years after the end of the devastating war, electromagnetic pulses start again, and this time humanity may not win.
King: Half man, half beast. Leader of the Shadow Warriors.
Marinah: Her job for the Federation is to bring King back into the fold to save humanity, again.
Problem: King and his men were betrayed by the new government and their memories are long and deadly.
Solution: Marinah must risk everything to prove she’s someone the the Shadow Warriors can trust. Too bad she’s the wrong person for the job and too bad she’s the only person.

I really enjoyed the world that Shadow took me to. Most humans are dead and the ones that are left are in fear of Hellhounds, as they should be. Shadow Warriors are half human half beast and aren't fond of the humans, but they are good at killing Hellhounds and they need the humans as much as the humans need them. Marinah and King will give you a lot of laughs even as they deal with a scary new world and their important part in saving humanity. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it and I'm looking forward to future books in this series.
**This book was provided to Nerd Girl Official in exchange for an honest review.** Shadow: Duet; A Genetically Modified Novel, Book 1 by Holly S. Roberts is the beginning of a post-apocalyptic story. It has people, and monsters, and monsters that help people fight the other monsters. Confused? Don’t be. I warn you, this is going to be a very short review. Short even for me, and I can be known for short reviews. I’m making it short for a couple of reasons; first, I have to get to the next book! Additionally, I pride myself on no spoilers in my reviews, and I’m afraid to say anything at all and spoil it for you! So I’m just going to tell you-no, I’m going to order you-drop everything & get this book!! If I could, I would give this book 5 times 5 stars! It’s just that good a story. I will warn you, click on both books 1 & 2 purchase buttons, you’ll want the next waiting in the wings. Trust me. Go, now! I have another book to read! **Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official. For more information regarding our reviews please visit our fan site: www.facebook.com/NerdGirl.NG **
This is Shadow, book one of the Genetically Modified series written by Holly S Roberts. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and so worried for Marinah the entire time. Have you ever felt overwhelmed and surrounded by wolves in sheep’s clothing?? What about barely contained beasts that ripple just below the surface of the huge men that are watching your every move? Trust me, you WILL NOT want to set this one down until the exciting cliffhanger ending! I’m gonna go sit in a corner and color in my adult coloring book while I wait for book two of the series to come out. You can join me, but bring your own colors...I chewed on a few of mine while reading this awesome book.
