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.

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!

Anika-best narration

Anika’s narration is fabulous. She gives each Chaka distinct voice and does it very well. A good story made great by her narration.

Fell completely, utterly in love with this world

What made the experience of listening to Shadowhouse Fall the most enjoyable?

ok, so Anika Noni Rose reads it, so of course the voices are full and real. Especially Sierra Santiago, the young Afro-Latina protagonist. Sierra and her friends get swept up in a battle of magic that also has to do with family, community, ancestors, artmaking, archives, and colonialist ethnography. Yup, Older gets teen agency, humor, magic, romance, and politics effortlessly into a story you can't put on pause.

What other book might you compare Shadowhouse Fall to and why?

It feels so fresh, it's hard to compare, quite honestly.

What about Anika Noni Rose’s performance did you like?

Rose brings to life a huge variety of characters without ever drifting into stereotype or caricature. She brings life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I laughed, yes I cried, yes I learned, yes I can't stop telling everyone to read/listen.
