"I hope this series never ends!!"
Catherine Spangler is a genius! Her SHIELDER
series is just brilliant! I looked for the first book of
this marvelous series forever and finally Catherine sent it
to me herself when she asked me to review SHADOWER, the
second book of this series. I have thoroughly enjoyed this
whole series and SHAMARA is no exception.
SHAMARA is the story of Jarek san Ranul and Eirene
Kane and what a story it is! This story takes us all over
the galaxy and back again. Eirene is an Enhancer but she
does everything in her power to try to hide the fact.
Controllers have already wiped out the Enhancer population
but a few still pop up every now and again. When Jarek
suspects what Eirene is, he tries his best to get her to
help but she's denied the fact that she is an Enhancer for
so long she refuses and tells him he's mistaken.
Unfortunately circumstances are working against Eirene and
time is of the essence to Jarek. Jarek cannot let the
Controllers wipe out any more Shielder colonies. It is just
too heartbreaking to hear about another whole colony being
decimated without one survivor. Pretty soon the Shielder
population will be as non-existent as the Enhancer
population. Can Jarek finally convince Eirene to help him
and can they eventually admit their love for each other?
What will Eirene do when she finds out that Jarek killed
her father? How will Jarek tell her that her father was a
traitor to the Shielder population and an evil man and that
Jarek had to kill him so he wouldn't kill another Shielder.
This world that Catherine Spangler has created
as real to me as it can be. The characters are amazing and
the fact that I can visit all of the beloved characters
over again in each and every book is just a bonus in my
opinion. Even though each story is a stand alone, the
books are all that much better when they are read
together! I eagerly look forward to Catherine Spangler's
