Excerpt from I Become Shadow

Did you miss my new release?

Lion Within is available now!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

This week I read I Become Shadow, the debut novel of Joe Shine. Be warned that it is book one of a series, and book two is not out yet! But it was a very satisfying read with a full plot arc, not just a teaser. I Become Shadow is a bit of a thriller and a bit of sci-fi. Young adult. Young girl trained to be a lethal weapon. Good relationships and character development. Cheeky, fun voice.

I zoned out. Zoning out is something I could do really well. Easily a top five skill. You know what? Scratch that, it’s number one by a mile. I’m really good at zoning out.

Joe Shine, I Become Shadow

shadowtwitI’ve copied less than the full Amazon description, because I think it was too much of a spoiler. Here is the shortened version:

When Ren Sharpe was fourteen, she was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called FATE and trained to be a human weapon.

Now, four years later, she receives her assignment: protect Gareth Young at all costs. Currently a student at Texas A&M, Gareth will someday change the world. FATE calls people like Gareth “FIPs”—future important people—and they’re everywhere, each with a FATE-trained shadow.



  1. Such an interesting teaser! I’m definitely intrigued to know more. Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  2. A sci-fi thriller sounds like fun. I like the author’s voice in your Teaser.

  3. Sounds like me when I was young. No wait! Sounds like me now too. LOL I think I’d like this one but will probably wait until the next book is released. I’m not crazy about being left waiting.

  4. I’m pretty good at zoning out too. I’m not sure that’s always a good thing. 🙂 This does sound like an interesting book.

  5. Sounds like a good story. I like science fiction. This one also sounds like it could have a romance plot too. Happy reading!

Tell me what you think!
