I can't wait for her next book to come out!
Harper Thomas
It's a really interesting story about a girl named Leah Spencer who feels out of place in normal high school because she is actually a Creatuir Shaman.
ReaderGirl
It was like I got to parts that I felt dragged or were pointless, and I put it down and I didn't really want to pick it up again.

I loved Maureen Lipinski's first two books, and I couldn't wait to read Shadow's Edge when it came out! I even got to meet the author at a recent book signing in New York this month. Shaman Leah Spencer's character takes me back to my own high school days and the battle of fitting in at the new school while dealing with boys, partying, and oh yeah, having magical powers...all at the same time! Leah must decide whether she will stay the course of trying live a normal new life in high school or be drawn back to the Other Realm and help solve a mysterious murdererous rage killing off all she has ever known in that Other life. It's an adventurous and exciting ride that keeps you reading cover to cover! I can't wait for her next book to come out! It was great meeting you at the signing, Maureen!

Bought this book after hearing the author speak, and I read it all in one night! It's a really interesting story about a girl named Leah Spencer who feels out of place in normal high school because she is actually a Creatuir Shaman. She went to the Other Realm and accidentally spent a whole year of her life there, so now she is back to try to be a normal high school kid. Except as hard as she tries to fit in, she can't exactly leave her Creatuir life behind. I also loved Leah's three sisters, who each had their own magical powers. This book is fast-paced, funny, and magical!

Truth be told this one I picked up because it was based on a Shaman. Not that I have never read anything with one in it but that's it they are in it and not about it. Me trying to expand my horizons and try new things thought this would be a good idea, I was right. Though I did feel a little lost at the start, like maybe I had missed a book but I hadn't(I checked). This however was quickly fixed and possibly I was just a little quick to the trigger and way too impatient. Once I figured out why the girl that left the post that she was born to stand on, everything became easy and at times intense.

Leah wants a normal life, to be a normal teen. Though she hasn't always thought this way, once she was happy with her Shaman title and happily helped the Creatuir.. This only changed when she ended up loosing an entire year of her life when she lost track of time. So her family as moved back to her fathers home town to try and give her the life she wants but when things start going wrong and Leah finds out her friend and the previous Shaman Fiona is dead. Now the question is does she hang onto the new normal that she has found, or go back to her old life and the Creatuir.

Leah was not exactly a stand out character for me. She was back and forth with her confidence but she did have it so I can't say she was a push over. When she was at school she seemed nervous and withdrawn but she had also never been to a real school. When you want nothing more than to fit in then I guess you first bit of time would be nerve wracking. When she thought about her Shaman side and responsibilities it was like nothing could go on without her. So overall I didn't not like her. She wasn't whiny, she wasn't weak but she also didn't shine.

SHADOW'S EDGE was a fun story that combined the paranormal with typical high school activities like football, cheer-leading, and boyfriends. Leah Spencer is a Creatuir Shaman. She was born with the ability to mediate disputes between the Light and Dark Creatuirs. However, after she inadvertantly spent a year in the realm of the Light Creatuirs and missed her sixteenth birthday and lost her boyfriend to a more available girl, she is determined to be normal. She wants to attend high school and have all those experiences.

Leah is lucky to be escorted to school by Alex - the son of an old friend of her father who just happens to be the star of the football team. The school is obsessed with football. The team has a 30-some game winning streak. In fact a new, huge stadium is being built so that they will have an even larger presence. Leah makes friends with the in-crowd and tries really hard to fit in. She also meets a boy named Ben who is not part of the in-crowd and becomes friends with him too.

But the Light and Dark Creatuirs (I don't know how to put accent marks over the e and the u.) aren't about to let her go. She gets drawn back in when a friend of hers who lives in the Light Realm is murdered and drawn in even more deeply when the king of the Dark Realm is murdered too. Leah has to find a way to stop the Light and the Dark Realms from going to war.

I really liked Leah. She was eager to be "normal" but she had a very wry sense of humor and a strong sense of responsibility. I liked her family with her father being the normal one and her mother and sisters being like her and part of the paranormal world. I liked the strong, loving relationship she had with her sisters even though they had their disagreements and sibling rivalries.
