Earth is at war. Portals are opening across the planet and bringing creatures known as Outsiders. Their only desire is to eat, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. The only people who can stop them are the Defenders – led by Gareth Walker – who can open portals of their own to target the Outsiders in minutes. Gareth’s only advantage is an ability to see glimpses of his future.
For the past decade the Defenders have held back the incursion, but now a new portal opens, bringing something that Gareth did not see coming. As he must find a way to stop this new threat, he starts a quest for answers. He must learn how the war began and find a way to stop them once and for all.
All the while, he is aware of a shadow in his future – a moment he can’t see past. Will stopping the Outsiders cost him everything?

Shadows of Tomorrow by Jessica Meats is a terrific book with interesting and believable characters that you can't help but feel for and become emotionally invested in. With the author's attention to detail, the reader can't help but be drawn into the story and the world in which she has created.
This book is narrated by Jake Urry and with his lovely British accent took this story to a whole other level of enjoyment. This is the third audio book I have listened to that is narrated by Mr. Urry, and each one continues to get better and better. The performance was solid and the 'voices' were subtle yet distinctive enough for the listener to keep track of the speaker. I would have liked to have heard more emotion from each of the characters, but this is just a personal preference and did not distract from the story.
Overall, Shadows of Tomorrow is riveting story with a unique plot that will keep any fan of science fiction engaged throughout. This book is truly a hidden gem among the many jewels in the literary world and one that I would highly recommend.
