编辑推荐:In this sf-fantasy thriller, a (literally) underground British government program, in conjunction with the CIA, uses astral projection to spy on the world's most fearsome terrorist network, the Sword of Wrath. The YA hook is that teenagers—more nimble-brained than adults—are the best candidates for such work, so readers are introduced to Danny, a thief with a heart of gold and natural psychic abilities; Opal, the daughter of a Shadow Project muckety-muck; and Michael, a hunky prince from Mali. Brennan dutifully constructs a light crush triangle between the three teens, but that falls mostly by the wayside in favor of some terrific action sequences. It may sound strange to say about a book whose central conceit is built around out-of-body experiences, but in the second half of the book, Brennan really gets out there with a fuzzy but compelling mix of Middle Eastern occultism, Knights Templar mythology, and a couple different planes of reality. Heady, yes, but never so heavy that it topples the swiftly paced paranormal thrill ride. Fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider books should be right at home.
内容简介:Danny Lipman is a thief . . . until one night he robs the wrong house. He inadvertently breaks into the headquarters of the Shadow Project, a secret government organization where teenage spies are trained to leave their bodies, using astral projection to travel around the world on deadly missions. 

Danny is captured, but the Project leaders quickly realize he has a special gift. And when a key operative—the director's daughter, Opal—goes missing, he is offered a choice: Join the Shadow Project or go to jail. 

Danny joins and is quickly sent to investigate the Project's current target: a worldwide terrorist organization known as the Sword of Wrath. But as he gets deeper in, he discovers both the Project and the Sword of Wrath are far more than they seem. Danny and his fellow operatives are caught up in an ancient supernatural conflict and will have to learn how to survive in a world without boundaries of space or time, where the wrong choice could be their last.
作者简介:Herbie Brennan is the New York Times bestselling author of the Faerie Wars series as well as a multitude of other fiction and nonfiction books, including The Shadow Project, the first book in this series. His work has been published in more than fifty countries. He lives in an eighteenth-century rectory in Ireland with his wife and eight cats, where he divides his time between his writing and a lifelong study of the paranormal . . . including out-of-body experience.
