Shadow Resistance
B.J. Cyprian, author
In this intriguing, page-turning, and slyly humorous tale, readers will find themselves pulling for three unforgettable women confronted with an unusual opportunity to address age-old social, political, racial, and economic hot-button topics. Dominique “Dom” Samuels is a wealthy, reclusive computer genius living a life full of anxiety evoked by tragedy. Her acute awareness of the injustices suffered by minority communities makes a logic-based artificial intelligence program of her own creation preferable to people. Until, that is, a man appears on her doorstep with an ingenious idea that turns her isolated existence upside down. Rose Jenkins is a tough but compassionate urban school counselor with a mission to protect at-risk youth from the heartbreak of drugs and violence that took away two of her brothers. When another brother, Robert, is released from prison, healthy and free from his addiction, he opens her eyes to a mysterious group with an entirely new take on social justice. Layla Green is a police crime scene technician who finds herself at the scene of a grisly murder with no physical evidence and an unidentifiable victim. Then Layla’s eidetic memory zeroes in on one solitary clue — a video game console. When a stranger helps Layla and her partner, Rachel Vasquez, access the console’s protected files, things take a twist none of them could have predicted. Shadow Resistance leads its readers on an innovative, thought-provoking journey — and to a new take on timely social topics. Even as this book serves up its compelling story, it delivers an invitation to step into the shoes of those who may be different by remembering the humanity of others.
Reviews
Chris Angelis - Author

The novel is relentlessly critical of social injustice, of all forms. Furthermore, there is a crucial detail in this. Not only is the narrative critical of injustice, but it also portrays a remarkable maturity about causes, factors, distractions, and hypocrisy. An author should not be afraid to disturb, and B.J. Cyprian isn’t.

Francis Mont - Author

As far as the philosophical message is concerned, “Shadow Resistance” by B.J. Cyprian has a very serious one, particularly about social justice, and specifically about discrimination and abuse of the black, and other minorities groups in America. For this reason this is a very important book. Unless the reader is hopelessly biased, the supporting evidence is convincing, sometimes overwhelmingly so.

Shadow Resistance delves deeper into Black History, how certain occurrences in the past, have shaped the Black Community’s outcome and existence in modern times as well as the notable Black figures it looks up to. Most of it may not necessarily be positive and for a person who has had a different experience by virtue of skin color or being born elsewhere in the world perhaps, it may get uncomfortable in certain instances.

It will not surprise me to see this book become an award winner. B.J. has an easily understood writing style and the book moves along at a good pace – there is no down time. The story encompasses topics of sexuality, technology, medical, video games, music, race and history. It contains some interesting twists and turns.

The multiple layers throughout the story are fascinating and will have the reader’s minds racing with thoughts as they are compelled to think about the troubling topics at the heart of the story. As I read Shadow Resistance, I loved the feeling of being challenged.
