Shadowhouse Fall | Daniel Jos Older

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.

Rarely do i ever read sequels like this;however with their tight friendships and use of their various creative talents to battle heinous, power hungry demons, well, who could resist?

I'm usually not one for the fantasy/sci-fi YA series but I'm loving this one. I'm actually frustrated because I can't find any information about the eventually forthcoming third book. I also highly recommend the audio version; returning narrator Anika Noni Rose puts her theater experience to good use and is absolutely wonderful. Every character voice is individualized and the few lines she gets to sing are a bonus.

I finished this one about two weeks ago and have been trying to digest. The audiobook was fantastic, read by the wonderful Anika Noni Rose, who also read Shadowshaper. Overall, I liked it and how it built on the world set up in the first novel. I didn‘t like the change in relationship between Sierra and Robbie and her new love interest in this book. Looking forward to the next installment!

No real #activist books in my collection - but I do love the Shadowshaper series, and the second book has a pretty strong #blacklivesmatter plot line. I geeked out so hard over these at TLA last year that I‘m pretty sure Daniel José Older was weirded out while signing, but that‘s pretty much the story of my life when it comes to meeting authors. #readingresolutions

My name is Arabic for precious and my last name means freedom so I am precious freedom? Hah. One thing that still irritates me though is that I was named by a distant relative and I don‘t know why? My parents aren't too sure either.

Seriously, if you're not reading Daniel José Older you are doing yourself an absolute disservice. We go back to his vibrant, DIVERSE Brooklyn for another action-packed journey. This is a Brooklyn where I want to be! And this cover!

Daniel José Older‘s first book in this series, Shadowshaper, was terrific, and I think I like the sequel even more. The Brooklyn of Sierra and her friends, who use magical abilities to channel the spirits of the dead and, is richer and funnier and fuller and more challenging. Awesome YA book that folks of any age can dig into.

Do I️ really need to say that I️ loved this novel? Doesn‘t everyone know by now that I️ think DJO is a genius and that all of his books are without flaw?

I️ didn‘t think so.

I didn't get a lot of reading done last month. 😢 I finished 2 graphic novels and made a little more progress on Hill's book. So, no collage of last month's reading. Instead here's my potential TBR for November! Also, I have a couple #audiobooks lined up and some titles on my #kindle What are you looking forward to reading this month?

Brooklyn teen Sierra Santiago and her team of shadowshapers, who fight injustice by channeling their ancestors‘ spirits through art, discover their magic has stirred up supernatural forces intent on taking control over them through an enchanted deck of cards. Shadowhouse Fall shimmers with mystery, suspense, and humor and also packs a message of empowerment for anyone who‘s been the target of racial profiling and police brutality.

Celebrating Teen Read Week 2017! Turns out my current read is already perfect for Sci-Fi & Fantasy Sunday. Not that I‘ve picked it up today. Swept away by re-watching NCIS on Netflix. #TRW2017.

EchoLogical How is it so far? I keep meaning to pick this up. 2y
WhatDeeReads @EchoLogical I‘m bias. I‘m never gonna say that a DJO book is anything other than perfect. 2y
EchoLogical @WhatDeeReads I'm seriously kicking myself in the butt because I had the chance to meet him back in 2015 at the Decatur Book Festival and passed for reasons I can't remember. 😭 2y
WhatDeeReads @EchoLogical Oh yeah, you gotta correct that. He‘s so pleasant and talented. Reza and Kia are two of my favorite written characters ever. 2y

So......... I was a little disappointed with this one, but I can't really put into words exactly why. The story is still super fun and unique and I really love Sierra. But the pacing was maybe a little off for me, and at times it kind of felt more like a graphic novel than a regular novel. Which I know a lot of people probably love, but is not really my thing. Even so, I still liked it, just not as much as the first. 3/5 ⭐️

I loooooooved Shadowshaper so I am super excited for this sequel! And damn do I love the cover art for these books. So glad the publisher (or whoever designs covers) didn't try to hide or downplay the character's identity. #nowreading #currentlyreading

Bookzombie I'm looking forward to this one too and feel the same about the covers. I listened to the first one on audio and it was so good. 🙂 2y

THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD. If "Shadowshaper" and "The Hate U Give" had a baby, it would be this book. It's funny and raw and vulnerable, and it is just tremendous. (Plus, "Six of Crows" and "Hamilton" refs!)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So I reread SHADOWSHAPER before I did this one, and no second book syndrome here. Part two is excellent, and tremendously better than part one. DJO has NO chill. Excellently crafted plot with very relevant real-life issues woven in. AND THERE'S GOING TO BE A PART THREE. God I love Sierra. Get your hands on this when it's out in the fall!

I was lucky to receive a copy of SHADOWHOUSE FALL at this year's BookExpo... and devoured it (and the novella that precedes it) in nine days. I didn't know it was possible to fall more in love with Sierra and her family and friends, but it was. The way Older weaves magic into the real life beauty and horrors of present day NYC is incredible. Read, read, read this series. #ya #bookexpo #ownvoices #latinxreads #nycreads #shadowshapercypher
