Her genetic secret could change humanity forever.
Her DNA grants her the ultimate power.
But all she wants is to disappear.
Looming buildings rise into the sky of a near-future America, shadowing the desperate poverty of the soovie parks, death doctors, and fear bombs. In this world of walled cities, where status matters most, Caitlyn Brown is desperate to remain invisible, wrongly believing what she needs to hide is the deformity on her back. The powerful want her for so much more.
She’s forced to take flight again, relying on the help of Razor, a street-smart illusionist she can’t trust. Her only hope is to reach friends already tracked by government.
With a twisted bounty hunter in full pursuit, she and Razor begin to learn the unthinkable about her past and the unique gifts of her DNA. It leads Caitlyn to a choice between the two men who love her, and whether to keep her freedom or sacrifice herself to change human destiny.
In this lightning-fast chase through an all-too-plausible future, best-selling author Sigmund Brouwer is at his best. Flight of Shadows is a terrifying ride into the heart of compelling moral questions about science and society.

Caitlyn Brown is a science experiment who survived. The only one who survived. And now she is intensely hunted because of how different she is and what she can give people. Determined to trust no one she fights for the freedom that is rightfully hers as a human being.
This is a futuristic story placed in an over-run, class oriented, poverty stricken America.It had me from the first page, which held a letter written from Caitlyns father to her. It is a science fiction, that is, at the same time, frighteningly realistic. At times I was repulsed, and other times I was intensly intrigued and wondering how the author was going to turn the novel around. If you need some excitement in your life...you should pick up this book!
I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah Press for free for the purpose of this review.
