Shield: Allie's War Episodes 5-8

Adult
Rated 5.00/5 based on 7 reviews
Grappling with her identity as "Bridge," a being thought to herald the end of humanity, isn't even Allie's biggest problem. She's also dealing with being married to a seer while trying to stop the Rook she put in the White House from starting a war. Then the boy appears. A highly dangerous telekinetic seer, he doesn't appear to have aged in over 100 years. Worse, he thinks Allie belongs to him. More

About JC Andrijeski

Hi there ~ I'm JC Andrijeski and I'm a writer of words and a dreamer of dreams, one with a (perhaps overly?) friendly appreciation for my own dark side, at least when it comes to my fiction writing. That being said, if you read my stuff, you'll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I'm a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love...even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there...

Here's the drier stuff about me: I've published novels, novellas, serials, graphic novels and short stories, including new adult fantasy series, Allie's War, new adult science fiction series, Alien Apocalypse, and the Gate Shifter series, about a shape-shifting alien and a tough-girl PI from Seattle. I also write nonfiction essays and articles as Jules Okapi, some erotica as Blue Daniels and some children's fiction as Hunter T. Castle. My short works have been featured in anthologies, online literary, art and fiction magazines as well as print venues such as NY Press and holistic health magazines. I work full time as a writer in Portland, OR.

Review by: Coral Russell on Aug. 27, 2012 :
I like urban fantasy this book has all of that great world-building, characters, and plot that keep you turning the pages. I actually this book better than the first one and that makes me look forward to reading the rest of the series because it seems to be just getting better and better. I like the romance and their complicated relationship. I like the villain who is very smart and cool. Anyone who enjoys urban fantasy will love this book.

Review by: Susie Williams on April 18, 2012 :
This book is a worthy follow-on from Rook - Allies War and sees Allie and her husband Revik wanting to connsumate their marriage, while all sorts of things are throen in their path. Adding to this, Allie is trying to live in the seer world and make sense of all the events unfolding around her.

I couldnt put down book one,and it was the same with this book...and I am already looking forward to book three

Review by: Jessa Callaver on March 06, 2012 :
A worthy sequel to "Rook," Andrijeski's vivid descriptive language take us back into a world of human-Seer conflict, where one woman holds the key to inter-species transformation. In "Shield," we find Allie, known among Seers simply as, the Bridge, coming to terms with her existence, trying to understand and prepare for a destiny she hardly grasps or believes in, and in the midst of it all, attempting to mend the wounds of a troubled relationship with her Seer mate, ex-traitor, Dehgoies Revik. And from there, things slowly but devastatingly fall apart and the reader is steeped ever deeper into the building storm and a world on the brink. The intricacies of this future are spell-binding, mind-boggling, so seamlessly elaborate at times you find your imagination panting to keep up with the scenes and images Andrijeski creates. A real pageturner and a book that ended far too soon.
An EASY and ENTHUSIASTIC 5-sar review! J.C. Andrijeski's the real deal.

Oh my. And by that I mean, OH MY! I devoted every waking moment of two days to this book - never have I been so grateful for the kid's karate and gymnastics. I only give 5 stars when putting a book down feels like grieving. JC Andrijeski has the storyteller's gift.

This book picks up shortly after Rook: Allie's War Book One leaves off, and it has a forward momentum that just doesn't quit. The tension between Allie and her mate, Revik, never completely resolves, and the two of them are so in love, and yet so damaged. One thinks they might heal each other, if they ever get enough time.

I want to stay in Allie and Revik's world. These characters have become completely real to me, more than that, they feel like they've always somehow been a part of me, but have always been just out of heart's reach. Until now.

JC Andrijeski is a rising star. Mark my words.

Review by: Twisted Root Publishing on Sep. 02, 2011 :
Take an apocalyptic heroine, monks with psychic powers, villages in the Himalayas, a very torrid romance and a political thriller that reaches right to the core of the US government and you have this complex and compelling thrill-ride of a novel.

Allie now lives with the Seers after humankind has named her an enemy and terrorist. She’d like to heal the world and finally have sex with her husband, except her husband is gone on a secret mission and everyone—humans, and every enemy faction of seer—is hunting her. And meanwhile darker forces bring to play a seemingly ageless monk of surreal power, an old nemesis biding his time as the President of the United States, and horrible secrets from her husband’s past. These forces together might tear her love apart, and might bring about the apocalypse she would do anything to stop.

A great read. Highly recommended. A far superior book to book one.

Review by: M L Sawyer on June 05, 2011 :
Shield, Allie’s War: Book two by J C Andrijeski is a story that follows on from the first novel. Allie is slowly trying to terms with her being a Seer and her apparent marriage to Revik while she barely manages to make her way through the intricacies of Seer law and culture. To reveal more might be considered a spoiler…

Again I felt myself being drawn into the story of Allie and the amazing path her life has taken. The adventure, fear and suspense are addictive with the story itself quite unique and interesting. J C Andrijeski makes you feel for the characters, fear for them when they are in danger and let you burn with the want for revenge when they are wronged. I ended up reading this book in about 3 days and that in itself should recommend this novel to you.

This novel is better than the first, but could not be without Rook - Allie’s War: book 1, as much of the world is created in that first tale.
