Review: SHADOW HARVEST is the seventh book in the Sydney Rye series and now Sydney is preparing to take a more active role in Joyful Justice when her good friend, Merl, disappears in Shanghai. Sydney is quite unprepared for the violent nature in the darkest recesses of China, but she’s determined to find Merl no matter what. Yet, it just may cost Sydney more than will ever know. SHADOW HARVEST is well written and explores issues of oppression, abuse, and corruption. While Sydney has grown through the series to a point, she needs to come to accept with who she is and what she does now. The action is strong and consistent, but some of the characters need additional development to keep readers interested in their continued well-being. SHADOW HARVEST ends in a way which will make readers want the next book as soon as possible.
