Description

A mysterious stone figure of the goddess Ishtar, long-buried in the desert, bestows on US Army Lieutenant Ashton the power to move objects by her mind alone. Ash must learn to control this impressive power, before it controls her. She turns to her tough, steadfast lover Cleo, with talents of her own, to help Ash in her struggle to stay firmly rooted in her humanity.

The women seek a cause worthy of their skills, refusing to allow the destructive side of Ash’s ability to be used by any outside forces—military or mythical. A hazardous rescue mission hurtles them back to the desert they’d left far behind, links their past and present, and just may be what Ishtar had in mind all along.

A lesbian action adventure about sudden superpowers, lasting romance, and fighting for what matters.

    This is SO good!

    Action, drama, danger, ancient idols, mysterious happenings, sex traffic rescues and lesbian soul mates… What more could you want?

    WOW! This book is engaging and entertaining, amazing, alarming and action packed! It had me on the edge of my seat so many times! I had to keep reminding myself that the heroes always win and Ash and Cleo would be alright, but my oh my was I worried about them. The characters seemed so real and the main secondary characters were written so well, I really did care what happened to them. I could hardly put this book down, I read it as fast as I could, not by choice but because I was so involved, I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what happened next. I fear I was up FAR too late in the night, reading until the wee hours in the morning. If you like super heroes this book is definitely for you!!
    The only way this adventure could be any better is if it were made into a movie!

    I hate to say this but I was disappointed by Shadow Hand. The pace was stilted, the characters lacked any chemistry and there were no real stakes. Nothing to lose. I understand how hard it is sometimes to show emotions and motivations, but this book was hard to get through in many spots and underdeveloped in others. While I applaud the main character’s choice of causes, they had the best of intentions, I didn’t feel any urgency or sense of risk. This one didn’t hit any buttons for me.

    :

    ‘Shadow Hand’ is a refreshing story, of strong women, superpowers and a fight for good over evil. Ash and Cleo are soldiers who find themselves changing their lives completely after an encounter with an ancient statue in the desert. When Ash realises she can use her mind to move objects she is a person of interest. Choosing to use her powers for the good of others takes a bit of planning, and with Cleo by her side she must decide how to go about it.

    The story is unexpected and unlike anything else I’ve read. It is well written and uplifting – in more ways than one! I enjoyed the camaraderie aspect, as Ash and Cleo become involved in helping other women. It felt empowering. The relationship between the two women was intense and sexy – what else could one expect from Sacchi Green? The tale goes in directions I didn’t see coming – and I appreciated the imagination and depth that went into the storytelling. I really liked it.

    I was given this ARC for review.
