L.A. Banks New Book
Shadow Walker is the first book in an exciting new young adult series by L.A. Banks. L.A. Banks is the author of the bestselling Vampire Huntress Legend Novels. My aunt has read all the books in that series but she say’s I’m to young to read it. But even if I was old enough to read it, I would have to buy my own copy since she has almost all the books in that series signed by the author, and when she has a book signed, no one can touch that book. Only she can.
In Shadow Walker, the teenage children of the world’s Guardians of the Light must learn to hone their extra-sensory talents to one day join in the battle with their parents.
While they are secreted away in the Temt Tchaas Academy, (aka Neteru Academy), these students must learn to fight evil as well as learn to resist the temptation of fighting with each other. Although these young people have super powers, they still struggle with the same dramas and insecurities like any other high school student – and just because their parents may be superhuman doesn’t mean their parents are perfect. Far from it. That only makes life more confusing, as peer pressure, budding romances, decisions about whether or not to snitch, or whether or not to use one’s supernatural gifts for personal gain must be sorted out. In this coming of age story, Sarah Rivera and her twin brother, Alejandro, must figure out when to use their wings or fangs, how to get along with their compound siblings, how to fit in with others in a huge new school, and perhaps most importantly, how to pick their battles to always fight for what is right.
