An Amazon Best Book of the Month! ― The Shadow Weaver Series

Fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak and The Night Gardener will devour MarcyKate Connolly's Shadow Weaver, the first in a dark middle-grade fantasy duology that's filled with shadows, danger, magic, and has the feel of a new classic.

Fantasy and magic for young readers: Emmeline's gift of controlling shadows has isolated her from the rest of the world. But she's content to live tucked away in her mansion home with her only friend and companion, her own shadow, Dar. Disaster strikes when a noble and his family visit and offer to cure Emmeline of magic. Dar promises to change the noble's mind if Emmeline will help her become flesh as she once was. Emmeline agrees, and the next morning, the man is found in a coma. Frightened, Emmeline and Dar flee. With the noble's guards on her trail, Emmeline's only hope of clearing her name is to escape capture and perform the ritual that will set Dar free. But Emmeline's not entirely sure she can trust Dar anymore, and it's hard to keep secrets from someone tethered to your feet.

MarcyKate Connolly, also author of Ravenous and Monstrous, is a New York Times bestselling children's book author who lives in New England with her family and posse of pugs. Like the main character in her Shadow Weaver duology, she once had an imaginary friend who did very naughty things like eating directly from the sugar bowl and playing hide-and-seek with her parents―without telling them―whenever they went to department stores.

You will also want to read the thrilling conclusion to MarcyKate Connolly's Shadow Weaver duology, Comet Rising.

About the Author:

MarcyKate Connolly is a New York Times bestselling children's book author and nonprofit administrator who lives in New England with her family and a grumble of pugs. She graduated from Hampshire College (a magical place where they don't give you grades) where she wrote an opera sequel to Hamlet as the equivalent of senior thesis. It was also there that she first fell in love with plotting and has been dreaming up new ways to make life difficult for her characters ever since. You can visit her online at marcykate.com.

Review:

"[Connolly's] use of language and suspense is captivating, resulting in a gripping tale that is wholly original. Dark, yet dazzling, this first installment in a planned duology is sure to popular. A perfect choice for fans of Kelly Barnhill's The Girl Who Drank the Moon" - Booklist, starred review

"Shadow Weaver is a spooky thriller filled with danger and magic... a fresh take on magic and friendship not to be missed.
" - Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak (2015) will find much the same chills and sequel-primed mystery here.
" - Kirkus

"Vivid and invigorating." - School Library Journal

"Connolly's narrative is full of meaningful moral lessons-on the limits of loyalty, the importance of honesty, and the absolute necessity of trusting others... an enchanting new juvenile fantasy series.
" - Foreword Reviews

"This book contains plenty of action and intrigue to keep the reader turning pages. It is quick to read and contains enough unsolved mysteries to make the reader look forward to the next title in the series." - School Library Connection

"The theme of friendship is handled deftly here... A gripping finale reveals the truth about the "cure" for magic, and readers will eagerly anticipate learning more in a promised sequel." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
