When terrorist size a railway station in Russia and then vanish into this air, T-FLAC agents realize they are dealing with people with the same gifts as themselves. Is an army of clones being created? I really have enjoyed the T-FLAC series. Lots of action and likable characters. ( )

Finally the heroine's hard work has pulled off. She's graduated from a desk job in accounting to a field posistin working with the special ops she admired from afar. One of these soldiers is the hero who she always aspired to be and harbored a secret crush on. But meeting the man in person, she realizes why it's said you should never meet your heroes. He's the complete opposite of her in every way. He frequently break rules and procedures, is sarcastic and he's also a very powerful wizard. The heroine lives her live by the rules and is social awkward, only knowing how to talk to people by throwing useless trivia at them. But when she's assigned to keep an eye on him to judge his loyalties, she doesn't figure into the math that she may fall in love with him. She's a decent soldier, excelling at all her tests and her photographic memory is a real god send during more than one mission but she lacks field experience. The hero has experience is spades but his once dependable powers, nowadays, are anything but. He finds himself losing control of his teleporting abilities and he's starting to really fear for his future as a special ops. Turns out his DNA has been stolen by the enemy and they've been making hundreds of thousands of evil clones of him and it's slowly draining him of his powers. Most of the book is a whirlwind of the characters darting to one location to save a hostage situation before rushing over to a factory to investigate the clone babies. Every chapters shows them going to one country or another and I found my head spinning. It really was a bit much considering nothing was ever solved. The hostages were killed 9 times out of 10 and the bad guys just kept coming. I loved the quirky idea of having the hero and heroine be Alexis and Alexander Stone respectively, no relation. It was fun and kept being the but of a joke throughout the story. I enjoyed the two characters being from entirely different worlds in regards to their attitudes and personalities but finding common ground and love through attraction. I loved how awkward the heroine is and how cool and level headed the hero was. Because of the constant change of setting and the fact the they just ended up going in circles anyway, I couldn't rate it as a 5 star but it was still a great book. ( )

Night Shadow is the first of Cherry's psi/TFLAC books I read and was immediately caught up in it from the first page. Alex Stone and Lexi Stone are both TFLAC agents. Lexi is a by-the-book internal affairs operative and Alex does whatever he can to get his man. Lexi is sent on her first mission in the field with Alex with dual purposes, one as a TFLAC operative and the other as an internal affairs spy to investigate Alex to see if he is switching sides who is having erratic behavior because his powers keep fading in and out and the reasons for it are pretty shocking. Oh and did I mention Alex and Lexi are also lifemates. Another fantastic Cherry Adair book that has plenty of action and suspense. ( )

Interesting story, a bit difficult to read due to the overuse of the lingering thoughts of sensual attraction between the main characters. At times this seemed adolesent in nature. ( )

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! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345499735, Hardcover)

The passion and suspense of Cherry Adair’s latest killer trilogy, begun in Night Fall and continued in Night Secrets, now reaches its explosive conclusion in Night Shadow, as mismatched international agents take on evil head-to-head–and each other heart-to-heart.

Aside from working for the international anti-terrorism agency T-FLAC (and having the same last name), Lexi Stone and Alex Stone are polar opposites, right down to Lexi’s mere mortality and Alex’s paranormal powers. While straight-arrow Lexi pushes paper at an Internal Affairs desk, renegade Alex is busy pushing the envelope as he pursues the most dangerous global criminals. And though Lexi disdains his rule-breaking bravado and cowboy tactics, she can’t deny Alex’s skills when it comes to getting his man (not to mention any number of women)–just as she can’t ignore how his roguish charm makes her heart race and her temperature rise.

But Lexi’s secret desires clash head-on with her duties when suspicions arise that Alex is poised to switch sides–and join forces with a European terrorist cell. Tapped for her first field mission, Lexi finds herself assigned to shadow Alex’s every move, and if necessary, terminate him. Despite her feelings, Lexi’s willing and able to carry out her orders, as long there’s proof that Alex is a traitor. But getting the goods–and the drop–on her superagent quarry becomes an even tougher task when Lexi and Alex suddenly find themselves partners on an emergency mission in Russia.

When terrorists seize a busy Moscow railway station for ransom, then abruptly massacre their hostages and vanish into thin air, the agents realize they’re facing adversaries possessing of the same paranormal abilities as Alex’s elite T-FLAC/psi unit. But after Lexi kills an armed suspect during a breathless rooftop chase, she makes a series of shocking discoveries about the enemy T-FLAC is facing, the troubling truth Alex has been concealing, and the terrifying plot of a treacherous mastermind that could spell the downfall of T-FLAC’s most powerful and valued operatives. To save precious lives and stop the rise of a superhuman terrorist threat, Lexi and Alex must work as a well-oiled team in a race across the globe–and against time–with lethal shadows looming behind them, and no one to trust but each other.
