Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary sequel to the New York Times best-selling Shadowshaper is daring, dazzling, defiant.
Shadowhouse rising
Sierra and her friends love their new lives as shadowshapers, making art and creating change with the spirits of Brooklyn. Then Sierra receives a strange card depicting a white beast called the Hound of Light - an image from the enigmatic, influential Deck of Worlds. The Deck tracks the players and powers of all the magical houses in the city, and when the real Hound begins to stalk Sierra through the streets, the shadowshapers know their next battle has arrived.
Worlds in revolution
Sierra and Shadowhouse have been thrust into an ancient struggle with enemies old and new - a struggle they didn't want, but are determined to win. Revolution is brewing in the real world as well, as the shadowshapers join the fight against systems that oppress and incarcerate their community. To protect her family and friends in every sphere, Sierra must take down the Hound and master the Deck of Worlds...or else she could lose everything that matters most.

Unashamedly Fantastic and Fun

I've listened to both books in the series. I keep imagining what my love for reading would have been, or more accurately (since I love to read), how so many others who grew up like me would have been inspired by fiction that so directly connected with their own cultural and urban experience. The celebration of Black and Brownness. The teenage angst. And, of course, the story line which ties so well with the first book and sets you up for the next. Although I did not grow up in Brooklyn, I did in Chicago. The use of the people, places, social and political issues, youth and old skool culture, is brilliant and fun to read. I'm very much looking forward to the next book.

A worthy sequel

Loved this book! Anika Noni Rose is phenomenal in her embodiment of the characters. Older writes with an authenticity and wit that is sorely missing in YA. Can't wait for the third book!
