Sex, wizards, and clones. Oh, and a super-duper bad wizard guy who is defeated by the WOMEN! I think that was my favorite thing about “Night Shadow”, the conclusion to Cherry Adair’s trilogy.
Alexis Stone has finally made it out from behind her research desk and is now a full-fledged T-FLAC field op and on her first mission. The fact that said mission will mean she can work with the mouth-watering Alex Stone (absolutely no relation…thank God) is neither here nor there. At least that’s what she keeps telling herself. But it’s not like he’d ever look at her. I mean, sure she has a photographic memory, but she’s a norm, not a wizard. And she does have a tendency to quote from her photographic memory when she’s nervous…which is, of course, ALL the time when she’s around Alex.
Alex has never had a problem working with female operatives before. But this is Alexis…who apparently just got shot! And with the mysterious and increasing shortages he’s experiencing with his wizard powers, he’d really rather Alexis NOT be on his team. Not that he cares about flaunting the rules, but because she’s becoming his weak spot. And with the lives of himself and his two best buddies on the line, not to mention millions of people the world over, he really can’t afford to lose concentration right now. But Alexis…uh, what was he saying?
I found a lot of humor in this finale of the ‘Night’ series. There were parts that I thought were a bit cheesy if I tried to bring reality into the picture…so I just reminded myself to continue suspending reality and all was fine. I absolutely loved the fact that it was the women who saved the day. That’s right, NOT the wizards, NOT the wizard council, and not the other T-FLAC ops. It was the lovers of the wizards in peril and the ‘strength of their love’. Now if that doesn’t scream romance, I don’t know what does!
