Shadow Squadron

Sand Spider

by Carl Bowen
Illustrated by Wilson Tortosa

As Lieutenant Commander Ryan Cross and the soldiers of Shadow Squadron welcome their first female member to the team, Cross receives an urgent call from a powerful senator demanding assistance in saving his kidnapped son. When the team touches down in Mali, they immediately learn that something far more sinister than a simple kidnapping is going down in the desert... In their Starred Review of Elite Infantry, Kirkus Reviews lauded the Shadow Squadron series as "breathtaking to the word" with "top-drawer renderings of secret military missions around the globe." This action packed series delivers exciting stories highly relevant to today's real-world conflicts. Each book in the Shadow Squadron series includes glossaries, writing prompts, and discussion questions aimed at stimulating safe, objective discussion about war, current events, and the modern military.

Booklist Online

"Military terms are defined at each chapter’s start, allowing readers to immerse themselves in an authentic special-ops mission. Short chapters and saturated full-page color illustrations make for a quick read, as does the action-packed plot. That said, the book’s fairly mature content makes it fit best for middle-school reluctant readers. Utilizing contemporary issues, Bowen creates an exciting and modern story that will appeal to boys and girls with a taste for real-life adventure." - Booklist Online
