Gr 8 Up In this conclusion to the "Shadowshaper" trilogy, the stakes are even higher for Sierra and her crew from Octavia Butler High in Brooklyn. At the outset, they take out the villainous Queen of Bloodhaüs, but this victory is short-lived. It becomes clear that a final battle with La Contessa is coming. Many setbacks later, Sierra travels to Puerto Rico with her mother and the remaining Sorrow for a final battle. Meanwhile, the rest of her crew does battle with their rivals for control of the Deck of Worlds and the power to shape the future. In between chapters, readers learn La Contessa's origin story. This culminating book in the series will give fans the satisfying ending they've been craving. The various romance plotlines resolve neatly. The humorous dialogue, diverse representation, and politically aware themes that have been hallmarks of the series are also carried through to the end. While the skinheads of Bloodhaüs could have allowed for edgier political commentary, the fact that they were relatively easy to beat is a statement in and of itself. VERDICT A satisfying conclusion to a powerful urban fantasy series.Kristin Lee Anderson, Jackson County Library Services, OR

The epic conclusion to the acclaimed Shadowshaper Cypher series!

A house divided

Sierra and the shadowshapers have been split apart. Juan, Anthony, and Izzy are in jail, anxiously waiting to find out what will become of them. Back in Brooklyn, the other shadowshapers have been getting threatening messages from whisper wraiths, catching strangely shaped figures stalking them, and fending off random spirits. A war is brewing among the houses, and the very magic of the shadowshapers is at stake.

The fate of the worlds

Sierra is determined to protect her own in the coming conflict, even if that means keeping secrets from them. But a deal with Death by one of Sierra's ancestors has far-reaching consequences in the battles of the present, and as old fates tangle with new powers, Sierra will have to harness the Deck of Worlds and confront her family's past if she has any hope of saving the future and everyone she loves. Only doing so will mean following the magic to places the shadowshapers have never gone before . . . and may never return from.

New York Times bestselling author Daniel José Older spins a masterful conclusion to his evocative and captivating Shadowshaper Cypher series in a finale of searing rebellion, the power of fate, and a magic unlike anything you've ever imagined.
