    10. 4 Stars For this book Shadow Fox the blurb sounded intriguing, to the point where I could hardly wait to read it Unfortunately life stepped in and I didn t get to it as soon as I had wanted but now that I ve finished it hoo boy The story Well, once I got into it, it was nigh on addictive and the further I read the addictive it became I somehow missed the bit where it says that Shadow Fox is the first volume of a completed trilogy because, while the ending to this story is satisfying or as satis [...]


    11.
