Review: Shadowshaper

Shadowshaper Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It had been quite a while since I'd read any urban fantasy, and never in a YA novel, and I really enjoyed it. I like the whole being able to use shadows/spirits in drawings, or paintings, or music to protect people. I liked how Sierra was able to overcome her grandfather's gender prejudice and become powerful herself. Go girl power! It's a series starter, but one could be left happy with the ending in this novel, and not stress about the next one. I can see where the story arc might go, and I've put it on my list to come back to once the series is complete. I'm not feeling it for a Gateway, though. I think maybe because of the genre.
