Summary

The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. What those objects were, where they came from, and who - or what - might be inside them is the subject of fierce debate and equally fierce mockery, so that most who glimpsed them came to wish they hadn't.
Most, but not everyone.
Among those who know what they've seen and are forever changed by it are a pilot, an heiress, a journalist, and a prisoner of war. From the waning days of the 20th century's final great war to the fraught fields of Afghanistan to the otherworldly secrets hidden amid Nevada's dusty neverlands - the truth that is out there will propel each of them into a labyrinth of otherworldly technology and the competing aims of those who might seek to prevent - or harness - these beings of unfathomable power. Because, as it turns out, we are not the only ones who can invent and build and destroy.
Featuring actual events and other truths drawn from sources within the military and intelligence community, Tom DeLonge and A. J. Hartley offer a tale at once terrifying, fantastical, and perhaps all too real.

A gripping story of conspiracy

This story contains all of the cliche conspiracy theory events but it really nails them terrifically. After all, why change a formula that is so intriguing and makes you want to read on?

The book is well written and the characters and story develop nicely throughout.

Without including spoilers, I would add that I would have rated the book 5 stars had it not gone a little too far overboard on the action/realms of 'realisticness' towards the end.

Would recommend and will definitely read the second instalment.

Brings it ALL together.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, highly. Whether they are into the mass of conspiracy theories this book offers or not, it is an interesting listen on it's own merit.

What other book might you compare Chasing Shadows to and why?

Gosh, any book that references Area 51, Roswell, alien technology, and government coverups. This one has it all!

What about Paul Costanzo’s performance did you like?

Consistency, creativity and clarity. Had it all.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Truth is Here!

Any additional comments?

This is a very sharp debut of what looks to be a powerful series. Clearly derivative in some aspects as it deals with material that has been widely covered. That said, this is a unique and fascinating take on this, and I enjoyed it a great deal.
Looking forward to the rest of the series. Recommended!

Very intriguing...Couldn't put it down

Sekret Machines: Chasing Shadows does an excellent job of using story-telling to introduce several intriguing concepts about our present day as well as our history that makes it difficult to put down.
