Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alexis "Lexi" Stone has finally gotten out of the Accounting department and into the field. Being a T-FLAC operative is dangerous, but Lexi has yearned for the day she would work in a black op. Even though Lexi has no powers, she is now working with the psi unit. The Wizard Council wants to know if one of their top wizards, Alexander "Alex" Stone, has become a traitor. (Same last name, but no relation.)

Alex cannot believe that Lexi has been recruited and is now an operative. Though she has absolutely zero experience, Lexi has become involved in one of T-FLAC's deadliest missions. Alex is determined to keep the lady safe. Easier said than done. Alex's powers have been fluctuating lately. If his powers falter at an inopportune moment, both of them would perish. Protocol is to report his power troubles, but Alex feels that his abilities are needed too much right now. Several groups of terrorists "Tangos" have been taking hostages, demanding ransoms, and then releasing LZ17 (killing themselves and all the hostages) long before the given deadline. The numbers of the Tangos seem to be endless. The Tangos are appearing all over the globe, targeting no one country.

*** THREE STARS! I had a hard time keeping the two main characters separated in my head. The names Alexis and Alexander both have "Alex" in them. As for the nickname of "Lexi", that small letter "i" is easily overlooked. (The same last name gave me no trouble at all.) Other than the two main characters having nicknames and first names WAY too similar, I found this story to be very good. The plot builds slowly at first, but if you read closely you can figure out the Who and Why long before the operatives do. Well worth your time and money to read. ***

Alex Stone is a T-FLAC agent who is on the search for a terrorist wizard who is causing havoc all over the world. Lexi Stone works in the Internal Affairs division of T-FLAC and her mission is to find proof that Alex is a traitor to the organization. When they are forced to work together on a mission in Moscow that involves a massacre at a train station they discover they also have to fight their rising attraction to each other. Night Shadow is a great conclusion to this three-book trilogy inside of Cherry Adair's T-FLAC series. I would definitely recommend this and any of Cherry's book. You won't be disappointed!

HASH(0x9f0f26f0) out of 5 stars Strangely-paced paranormal April 13 2009
By Helen Hancox - Published on
Format: Hardcover
'Night Shadow' is the first of this series that I have read although there were clearly several previous books in the series. I'm not sure if it's the author's writing style or if the previous books contained information relevant to this one that wasn't repeated, but at times I was very confused as to what was happening. The heroine, Lexi Stone, is a T-FLAC operative (I am still not sure what T-FLAC is or what it stands for) on her first mission when things start to go wrong. She's teamed up with a wizard with the confusingly similar name Alex Stone and desperate to prove she can be a good operative, despite having previously worked in a back-room office function. However when various terrorists threaten groups of people spread widely around the globe, and the terrorists all look like a younger Alex Stone, it's clear there's something very strange going on.

The action is fast in this story with Lexi and Alex travelling from Taiwan to Russia to Los Alamos to Berlin in the blink of an eye. They are following a trail which leads them to suspect an army of clones is being created but I was never entirely sure how they made the leaps of imagination that they did. The romance aspect of the story was perfunctory and rather uninspiring and the complexity of the plot, where I always felt I didn't have enough information (and neither did they) to make the deductions that were made, resulted in the book being rather unsatisfactory. Some heroes/heroines of previous books were brought in towards the end but they didn't add much overall to the story and I felt my attention wandering.

HASH(0x9f845630) out of 5 stars Night Shadow by Cherry Adair Jan. 7 2009
By eegat - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Ms. Adair but this time around leaves me somewhat disappointed because of the last book in this triology. First, book three was over priced. It was a ripoff for the publisher to print the first two books in paperback and to print the last book as a bound copy, and to price it three times the price of the first two. In my opinion, this is BLATANT price gouging on behalf of the publisher or maybe the author for all that I know. Second, to add insult to injury, both books one and two had better story development. There were spots in book three where I found the story development muddled. It seemed as if Ms. Adair was rushing toward a deadline instead of developing a plausible storyline.

HASH(0x9eff6060) out of 5 stars super romantic suspense espionage urban fantasy Dec 5 2008
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Besides their employment as Terrorist Force Logistical Assault Command (T-FLAC) operatives Lexi and Alex Stone have only on thing else they share, their identical surname. Alex is an experienced operative who rarely comes in from the cold; Lexi the human works data like a wizard in the office.

The T-FLAC leaders fear super field agent Alex the wizard has joined the enemy as there is proof of his staging terrorist events. They want to confirm their suspicion but know a field pro would be outed rather easily by Alex; they send Lexi who never leaves the office to investigate under the guise of assisting him. If she finds proof she must kill him. Alex is irate with his new partner who obviously has never stepped out of the office controlled climate into the field tundra. He has no time to protect Lexi, as something chilling is occurring around the globe. However she proves useful as her data analysis skills begin to uncover a pattern of terrorist strikes .His foster brothers Lucas Fox (see NIGHT SECRETS) and Simon Blackthorne (see NIGHT FALL) try to help the stunned couple deal with an international threat.

The final T-FLAC romantic suspense espionage urban fantasy is a super thriller that teleports readers around the globe as Lexi and Alex struggle with doppelgangers and love; with the latter being more dangerous. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action as once again Cherry Adair makes her realm seem genuine, but also adds self spoofing humor with the names of her lead couple. The return of the T-FLAC heroes from the previous paranormal spy novels enhance a strong finale that will have fans clamoring for more tales in the Adair environs.

HASH(0x9f695d08) out of 5 stars Night Shadow- A Joyfully Recommended Title Sept. 16 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Alexis "Lexie" Stone has finally gotten what she wants, sort of, she is an operative. Too bad her first assignment has her spying on the man she has long admired, Alex Stone (no relation), for IA. Alex is a wizard operative that they are worried might be going rogue. So while she is more than just a little attracted to Alex, Lexi will do what she needs to do, and by the book.

Alex is stunned that they let the woman out of research, though she appears to be a walking encyclopedia she also makes his pulse race, and all his blood head south. Add to this his powers suddenly seeming to be unreliable and Alex knows this emergency mission is going to be a lot more than expected.

Now suddenly Lexi and Alex are in a race against time against an unknown assailant. There is a super serial killer who has already killed thousands, and they seem to be a few steps behind the entire way. Someone seems to be rewriting the terrorism book and it will be up to T-Flac and the Wizard Council to stop them with Alex and Lexi leading the charge.

The more they work together the more that Lexi and Alex grow to care for each other. While Lexi knows it is love, will Alex ever admit it.

Night Shadow is the third of the Night Series stories and the first one I picked up. It is easily a stand alone book, but will make you want to go back and read about Luke and Sabastian, "sigh so many books so little time". But, do not let that stop you from picking up this action packed intrigue packed story. You will travel from continent to continent trying to unravel the mystery of who is behind some horrific killings. All the while you will get to see the interaction between Lexi and Alex Stone, who may share a name but their only relation at the start of the story is that of surprise partners in T-Flac's latest operation. I don't want to give up too much of the plot so all I will say is that I was stunned at how Ms. Adair tied some plot lines together that I never suspected were related, and I can't express how much I enjoyed Night Shadow. I can't give Night Shadow a higher rating than Joyfully Reviewed, so this is what it gets.

HASH(0x9fd28a44) out of 5 stars No, No, No!!! Feb. 6 2009
By book loving mom - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love suspense/romance type books. This was my first one with magical/ paranormal type powers in it. Big complaints!

So the lead female is a normal person, not a Wizard. However, when push comes to shove and she needs to be stronger, the Wizard Counsel bestows temporary magical powers upon her! (That is cheating, isn't it?) And the so called brilliant operatives were NOT brilliant at all. It took them forever to figure out the simplest things, such as why the bad guy was incubating babies. DUH!! When first entering the baby incubator building, all of them should have known what was going on. Sheesh.

Too much teleporting, shimmering, LockOut, dissipating, LZ17, etc. for me. We also had wizards and half-wizards. Oh wait, and near the end, when the author apparently needed another lame "twist," we are introduced to beings who are only 1/3 wizards. OMG, stop!!

I had to skim the last 50 pages of this book to get it over with. Never again will I buy some magic-whatever type book.
