Publisher's Summary

In a future where all the adults have mysteriously disappeared, gangs of children live brutal lives as scavengers. In this cyberpunk urban thriller, Flip and his friends explore the swamps that surround their ghost town, find unimaginable treasures, and fall prey to a vicious predator who tests their fragile friendships. High-tech weapons that paralyze, underground parking garages run by AIs, and biologic weapons thirsty for human blood set the stage for this sci-fi novelette.

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    The Shadow King is a story about a group of young kids who are trying to survive in a world that has been taken over by "shadows". They must do whatever it takes to survive in the wasteland of a world.

    A book that's over before it even begins. I think this would be a good "episode 1" or "book 0.5" in a full series. Granted there are some things that you wouldn't want to come out in the first book that came out in this book.

    I do enjoy short stories, novellas, and novelettes more than most people do, but this one felt a little too short for me. I honestly thought that it was just getting into the good stuff and it ended. Granted, it had an ending of sorts, but it still felt rushed. I'm not sure if Lozar ended it like this on purpose or if they have thoughts of doing more with the story later (I think there's something here). It had a Lord of the Flies meets I Am Legend feel to it.

    The narration of The Shadow King was done by Quinn Lozar who voices the characters pretty well. The story was fast paced and his narration definitely moved it along.

    Overall, an enjoyable short book. I definitely don't regret the hour that I spent listening to this.

    I received a free copy of this book, this has not affected my review in any way.
