Danny picks the wrong house to break into; what looks like an old home is actually housing for secret government operations. The Project is attempting to defend the world against a terrorist organization. They're using astral projection to spy and locate this group. At the moment, they're looking for one man in charge of a terrorist cell who is in hiding. Danny looks into an operation room just before they send a girl out on a mission. He can see parts of the process that normal people can't ever see. The government takes notice. They let him escape and then capture him again to make a deal. They'll keep him out of jail, pay for his spot at Cambridge, and look after his grandmother if he works for them. Danny takes the offer. However, the terrorists have their own unique supernatural methods of spying and they catch one of the Project's operatives. The whole operation is in grave danger, and Danny and two other operatives must secure an ancient weapon in order to stop the Sword of Wrath. The weapon must be taken over in an alternate world, where nothing is as it appears and one wrong step could mean the end of everything. THE SHADOW PROJECT is a new action tale featuring spies, an alternative universe, and one dangerous mission. This book combines spies with paranormal twists, creating an awesome and unique read. Plus, the author describes the fact that research into extrasensory perception really did exist among agencies.show moreby TeensReadToo
