Willet Dura and the rest of the Vigil must find how to stop the evil of the Darkwater. This is made harder by distrust, and by the Darkwater wanting to stop them. Who is going to be the victor?
The Wounded Shadow is the final book of The Darkwater Saga and continues the well written and imaginative series. Patrick W. Carr does a great job of making the characters seem realistic, as well as keeping the plot moving. As with all of his books that I have read, I didn’t want to put this one down.
Besides the great story and action, the characters endure struggles and face problems that we can associate with. Many of the characters had to face the regrets of past decisions so that they would no longer be held back by the guilt. They also struggled with doubt about whether they made the right decision. The Vigil, guards, and those working with them may not have gotten along all the time, but they cared about each other and were willing to do what they could to help each other.
Though different names are used, the protagonists display faith in God and trust Him to guide them. They were willing to admit that they could not handle things on their own.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my review, but that in no way affected my opinion.
