Danny Lipman is a thief . . . until one night he robs the wrong house. He inadvertently breaks into the headquarters of the Shadow Project, a secret government organization where teenage spies are trained to leave their bodies, using astral projection to travel around the world on deadly missions.
Danny is captured, but the Project leaders quickly realize he has a special gift. And when a key operative—the director’s daughter, Opal—goes missing, he is offered a choice: join the Shadow Project or go to jail.
Danny joins and is quickly sent to investigate the Project’s current target: a worldwide terrorist organization known as the Sword of Wrath. But as he gets deeper in, he discovers both the Project and the Sword of Wrath are far more than they seem. Danny and his fellow operatives are caught up in an ancient supernatural conflict and will have to learn how to survive in a world without boundaries of space or time, where the wrong choice could be their last.
The idea of the book is an interesting one. It has a lot of potential. It is about teenagers that can “step” outside of their body. Because of this unique gift they are utilized as spy of sorts.
It was different than anything else I have read so I was really hopefully it would be a good action/suspense book. But there was not much character development or continuity. I felt like I was just kind of coasting along in their world. I was not very excited.
Maybe this book was just setting up the stage and future books will have more character development.
