5.0 out of 5 stars Great series 29 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love these books (although it's quite eaqsy to sometimes transpose the characters with the cast of 'Criminal Minds' - wacky tech girl, odd young brilliant miond, steady leader, et al)

The way the books are written, with a couple of long stories interspersed with shorter stuff, is very enjoyable. Perfect airport fodder :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fractured team & lots more Gammas 1 May 2013
By Annie W
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The number of Gammas captured or lost has grown, and while some of their specialities are extreme, none of them bothers me as much as Mrs Cho, and what she's done to her poor spaniel - and now I've written that, I'd really like to erase that whole passage from my memory! At the same time, I still get a shiver from the line at the end of the passage about the disappearance of 5 boys: 'Steven Reyes counted eleven eyeballs in the jar'.

Information about the individual team members is starting to appear, although sometimes it's just as difficult to extract as clues probably are for the investigators. The progress of Chaz's slow recovery from his earlier experience is cleverly shown through the verious media which are always part of these volumes, and so, too, is the damage Reyes' management style has caused within the WTF. It gets even worse this time, where poor communication drives a wedge through the team. At the same time, Reyes's desire to warn the public about the existence of Gammas is countered by the overall boss, who foresees all sorts of problems should the public react..... Crisis follows crisis, and suddenly Chaz has gone, this time back to his old haunts in Las Vegas, where he faces demons of a different kind from his past.

Having read all the previous books, I've become totally engrossed in the individuals within the team, and their associates, such as Dr Frost and Dr Ramachandran (but not Celentano), and need to know much more about them. The plots within each book, too, are extremely clever, and each time I reread them I find fresh information, which I'm quite sure is leading to something much bigger than simply a number of Gammas with their individual powers. It's a very powerful storyline, and each member of the team is full of secrets yet to be revealed. Long may the series continue - I can't see myself tiring of the WTF for a long time to come.

If you like Criminal minds TV series, then you will like this series. Well written Variety of stories. Sometimes difficult to get to know all the charecters.

5.0 out of 5 stars hooked on the series, will continue reading 2 Feb. 2014
By Variable Statistic - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not going to say much about this as I read SU 1-12 as quickly as I possible could because I couldn't put them down and they were all there and oh my goodness I couldn't stop myself. This review will be put into each of the books mentioned. Will obviously pre-order the next one as soon as I notice it being available to do so.
4.0 out of 5 stars Shadow Unit Series Rules 30 Nov. 2013
By Brooke Neal - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am addicted to Shadow Unit. It's the perfect blend of mystery and SciFi. Characterization is excellent for a genre novel. It is a group effort rather than the child of any particular author, which is unusual. It's written more like a TV series and is not "literary" in the least, but completely enjoyable, suspenseful and after I've read on of these and go on to something else, I still hunger for more. I string these out and don't read them one after the other because I don't want it to be over.
5.0 out of 5 stars All of these are great 5 Jun. 2013
By Bellecon - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found these because I was looking for more Kindle books by Will Shetterly. Start at the beginning and read through them and then you can be like me wishing there were more. I got very involved in the characters and the stories. What is more, the writers have decided to forgo the usual publisher route so they are good prices but not the unedited mess that I am finding in most self published books. Try them, you will like them
5.0 out of 5 stars "Amateur" TV that exceeds pro TV 19 April 2013
By Deire - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tightly written by an expert crew of professional authors, this series doesn't just offer a filler for people longing for more Criminal Minds or X Files--it offers a better series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Darker than previous volumes but still absorbing 10 Sept. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again, excellent writing, although the story lines have taken a rather dark turn. I'm not the type of person who enjoys reading scenes of torture, but it does fit in with the overall flavor of the series and presents a very human side of the team as they deal with the aftermath.
