4.0 out of 5 stars Just enough to keep you guessing 24 July 2013
By TechJunkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think it's hard to make sequels totally unique because readers know a back story. That said I enjoyed the pacing and dialog of this book except for one thing - I didn't like the Chinese girlfriend's saying she would do anything but then fighting so hard at times against the main character's true nature. Too much wanting to have it both ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Swain does it again! 12 July 2013

Couldn't put it down. Like all his books it twists and turns then leaves you hanging for more. Hoping there is another to continue the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I Grabbed It Off The Shelf 21 Jun 2014
By Fred Rayworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It’s really hard to find good icky bug and it’s just by sheer coincidence that this is the third one I’ve found in the past month. Though not exactly monster icky bug (my word for horror), it does have monsters of sorts, in a supernatural vein.

I’ve actually meant to pick this book up for a while, but kept passing it up for some reason. I’m now glad I grabbed it. I’ve never heard of the author before and his previous books have slipped by me. When I read the blurb on the back, I was mildly intrigued but not totally hooked, at first. I finally broke down and am glad I took the chance, because it turned out to be a pretty decent supernatural thriller.

The characters were likable, the plot intriguing and unique, and the icky bugs interesting. The author’s intimate knowledge of slight-of-hand added an extra dimension to the main character as well.

The writing was outstanding with solid third-person, past-tense and no noticeable head-hopping. There was no long and rambling character exposition and unending narrative to bog things down. The story moved.

The plot had plenty of twists and turns and the ending was satisfying. However, the author left plenty of hanging threads for a sequel and the ending pretty much reeked of that. I didn’t care because I’d be willing to take on the next one.

This was a story where I looked forward to reading the next chapter. I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t dread having to get through one section to get to the good parts like some other books I’ve read. Can’t ask for better than that.

Yup, a nice surprise, and I’m glad I finally grabbed it off the shelf. It was worth it. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breezy, entertaining sequel to Dark Magic 24 Jun 2013
By Larry Dickman - Published on Amazon.com
I remember as a kid watching the Amazing Dunninger and being mesmerized, convinced he was on the level in his mind reading (he was in fact a magician). Of course, I was enthralled by Batman (which reverberates here in the lead Peter Warlock's tragic past), Superman and the like. I got wrapped up in UFOs, even going to the very first convention in NYC, as well as the Loch Ness monster and the like. As I got older, I became more skeptical, finally dismissing just about all of it. Still, it's always nice to go back to a time when I did buy into things like that, "the naiveté of youth" I guess. There seems to be a desire in many (most?) of us to want to believe in the implausible such as psychic powers and the like, so it stands to reason that novels like this will always be popular.

Author Swain is, I understand, one of the foremost amateur magicians in the country, whose books on sleight of hand effects he's created are often commanding high prices on eBay, and which magicians in Las Vegas have performed. I sought out some of his amazing Youtubes and found that he was now truly the "voice" of his protagonist and it somehow made it more entertaining.

Besides, I still wonder: do some magicians have a very secret society, and when they get together they are actually able to levitate things, perform real miracles? Of course not, but it's fun to think maybe some can.
5.0 out of 5 stars James Swain keeps on Drawing the Reader in 22 Feb 2014
By Yvonne Mason - Published on Amazon.com

I have been a fan of James Swain for a long time. His books never fail to entertain me from the first sentence to the last sentence. Shadow People the second in his Dark Magic series did not disappoint. The journey he takes his characters on is one of twists and turns which lead to a explosive ending. He adds the human element to all of the characters in that they are flawed just like we all are in real life. They are not bigger than life and they are not perfect. As a reader one can relate on so many levels. If you have not yet been introduced to this author then you are missing out. Shadow People is just his latest in a long line of entertaining as well as informative reads.
