In the Air Tonight is the third installment of Ms. Tyler’s Shadow Force series, and it picks up a few months after the conclusion of Promises in the Dark. I was a bit confused for the first 40 pages or so of the story because I was trying to remember who was who from the last book AND I didn’t realize that time had passed since the conclusion of the second book. Prior to the start of this one, the Delta team goes on a mission that goes bad where Gray is killed and Cael walks away with amnesia (these aren’t spoilers, I just didn’t pick up on the fact that time had passed and a mission took place.)

Once I got myself straightened out (well even before) I was hooked on the story. Ms. Tyler does an excellent job of mixing action and suspense with romance. I adore that her characters are never perfect, in fact can have significant flaws, but they are always able to move past them without completely forgetting their problems or suddenly finding out everything is alright.

This book has much more of a whodunit feel to it than the first two. Someone is helping Paige’s evil brother torment her and the clues point back to Paige’s allies. Each time I thought I’d figured it out, there was a new twist in the plot.

I really enjoyed this one... It’s my favorite of the series so far. The book had a real sense of closure, even though I know more stories are coming. The story was quick-paced and high action, but full of emotions and detail.

My Rating: 4 Stars (A-)
