Review: The Wounded Shadow

The Wounded Shadow by Patrick Carr
Reviewed by: Amber McCallister
Genre: Fantasy, Fiction
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Publication Date: April 3, 2018

The Wounded Shadow is a heart-stopping, action-packed end that will satisfy any fantasy reader. The third book pulls out all of the stops as it barrels to the end. Secrets are revealed and shadows come to the light as an enemy older then time dares to unleash his evil on a completely unsuspecting and vastly unprepared world. As the loose ends and myriad of questions are answered, horrors beyond comprehension and wonders beyond imagination unfold before your eyes. Just when you don’t think you can take any more revelations, another one springs out before your eyes to take you unaware and twist your world in another direction. This is a fantastic treat for enthusiastic fans of Patrick Carr. Nothing is possibly as sweet as one of his exquisite masterpieces!

Lord Dura Willet has had his life turned upside down and inside out by a deadly mystery that he can’t remember. In all his years on this earth, he can’t shake that this one might be the end of him, but he also knows that the price of not finding out the truth will be higher than he ever hope to live with. Not many friends have stood by his side at the danger that both finds him and the danger that he puts himself in, but thankfully Bolt, Geal, and Rory have proven their unfailing devotion more times than he can count. When hope is on the line and the darkness of night appears to prevail, can Dura convince those he has gathered together to follow his crazy plan, or will he find what lies on the other side of eternity before his time?

I love that Carr’s main characters are flawed humans, but above all they let their heart lead them. Even if you are as naïve as the day you were born, no one can truly fault you for following the path that your heart sets before you. While it definitely won’t be an easy journey to walk, it will be one well worth the pain and suffering in the end. Isn’t it our scars that tell our story better than any words? They are more the badges of courage; they are proof that we are willing to expend the energy to go the extra mile for what we know is right even if we are surrounded by a world that is lost and only knows how to look out for itself.

Patrick Carr is an incredibly gifted author who can paint beautifully complex worlds filled with absolutely fascinating characters that are both wonderfully flawed and devotedly hopeful. His characters will touch your heart in a way that you can never shake or walk away from. That touch will seer itself in to your very soul where you will carry it until you find another who needs to know that they are precious beyond measure, loved without condition, and needed beyond all.

Rated PG-13: There are some subjects that are too intense for younger readers.
