Scott Keller is working hard with the rest of his family and those who have joined them on the farm to survive in this post pulse dystopian world. New threats to his humanity seem to keep coming no matter how well they try to protect themselves. It seems that one faction of the remaining government has gone off the deep end and is in bed with the worst of mankind. What horrors must the Keller’s eradicate to stay alive and establish a new society?
Allen’s sixth book in the Walking in the Rain series, Lines in Shadow, concentrates on the Keller farm and the area immediately impacting it. The story is told from Scott’s point of view and really brings out the depth of his character. As he faces the spawns of Hell he must fight his own inner demons.
While I loved the story and can’t wait for the next installment, this book contained an unusual number of typos and failed to address a couple of points that left you hanging. Hopefully, when you read the book the typos will have been corrected. **Possible SPOILERS** What was Katrina’s ultimate fate? Maybe I missed that somehow. And, what about the drones? Their final disposition wasn’t addressed.
3 out of 5 stars.
