Book Review - Shadow Service Vol. 3: Death To Spies by Cavan Scott + Giveaway


Shadow Service Death To Spies by Cavan Scott is the third graphic novel in the Shadow Service series. Gina Meyer is a new agent in the MI666 agency and she is still getting used to her new teammates. She is trying to master and control her magical powers.

Gina is working with her new colleagues to try and figure out who is murdering undercover agents all over the world. The secret agents are being killed by monsters that are inspired by folklore. No one seems to be safe, including Gina and her coworkers, as someone is using the monsters to do their dirty work.

While Gina is investigating the murders, she is also working with Quinn to find the truth behind her birth. Gina feels that her mother might not be her real mother and also suspects that she is hiding something from Gina. As Gina and Quinn probe into Gina’s childhood, they realize that someone in her past might be related to the recent string of deaths.

Gina is unsure who to trust after she’s been previously betrayed by her loved ones. This was shown in the previous novels. To add to her feelings of betrayal, one of her teammates switches sides and becomes the enemy. She fears that the person targeting the other secret agents might be someone Gina is close to.

I read the other two volumes of Shadow Service and enjoyed them. The latest installment was just as enjoyable and action packed as the previous two books. In this volume, we learn more about Gina’s background and see her grow into her role as a shadow agent. She also learns to trust her gut instincts and becomes more aware of her growing powers. The graphic novel does end on a cliff hanger and the books need to be read in order. The graphic novel does have scenes of graphic and violent deaths. Not recommended for really young readers due to this. 

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion**
