Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Black follows her well-plotted Glimmerglass (2010) with another riveting episode of Dana�s new life as a Faeriewalker in Avalon. Relegated to a safe house to keep her hidden from her father�s and her own enemies, Dana�s days at first are filled with boredom, outside of fighting lessons and visits through the city�s tunnel system with her new best friend, Kimber. But when Kimber�s hunky brother falls victim to a motorcycle gang�like posse, Dana dares to rescue him. Black�s fantasy world is finely honed and filled with realistic concerns as well as creative responses to them. Grades 9-12. --Francisca Goldsmith

More About the Author

Jenna Black got her BA in physical anthropology and French from Duke University.

Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research in the field and made this shocking discovery: primates spend something like 80% of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and eating.

Concluding that this discovery was her life's work in the field of primatology, she then moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming dogs and writing technical documentation. She is now a full-time writer and lives in North Carolina with her husband and two dogs.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Wild Hunt has come to Avalon. Led by Arawn the Erlking, the arrival of the Hunt has struck fear in Avalon's citizens, both mortal and Fae. Dubbed "The Nightmare of Faerie" Arawn and his hunters, while no longer possessing the power to simply hunt at will, are always looking for someone foolish enough to instigate an attack so that they can give chase.

Dana Hathaway, already in hiding from the Queens of Faerie and any assassins they might send, is doing her best to stay as far away from the Wild Hunt as possible. Having witnessed their arrival in Avalon the last thing she wants is to meet this immortal Faerie. There are already enough people who wish her harm, she certainly doesn't need to add to that list, and especially someone as dangerous as the Erlking.

Ever since her arrival in Avalon Dana's luck has run out. Even heavily guarded and kept hidden underground with only limited ventures into town, she manages to run into the Erlking, and on more than one occasion.

Although seemingly coincidental, it quickly becomes apparent that Arawn is very interested in Dana, but his intentions aren't clear. Have the Queens of Faerie hired him to eliminate her as their biggest threat? Did her Aunt Grace play any role in his arrival? Or does he want to use Dana for his own purposes - for her Faeriewalker abilities that will allow him to gain back his power and assassinate the Queens?

One thing is for certain, as long as the Hunt is in Avalon Dana, and everyone she cares about, is not safe.


Shadowspell is the second book in the captivating Faeriewalker series.

As other reviews have stated this book is the second in the Faeriewalker series, and I have to say it was an entertaining addition to the series. I found the heroine, Dana, to be spunky and likable, even if her actions were rash at times. The author does a good job of portraying her as a sixteen year old -Dana is a strong character yet she is still ruled by emotions and does not always think though the consequences of her decisions.

My only problem with the series is Dana's love interest Ethan. He seems to be interested in Dana more for his own personal gain than anything else. Plus, I did not find him that likeable based on his actions in the previous book and continued in this book. However, it is nice that the author has Dana recognize these flaws in Ethan rather than have her be unquestioningly besotted with him. I have to admit I prefer Keane and will be interested to see what happens between him and Dana in future books.

Format: Paperback
Having read both books, I think they're agonizingly dim and paint-by-numbers, but I also thought they'd be harmless fluff for teenage girls who would otherwise be reading gossip magazines. Not after this one. Look, YA and sexual assault do not mix unless you handle it VERY carefully. I have no idea how the author managed to be simultaneously graphic and callous while writing for a young adult audience, but she did. All of the horror, and then not one shred of realistic follow-up.

Moms who are thinking of buying this for your daughters, it's just a stupid book. Every female in the book is a villain of some sort (though without any real authority except homicidal impulses), bar the best-friend character who exists only to talk about boys and tea. The main character spends all of her time being controlled by or lusting after various men. If we were scoring via Bechdel Test here, I think it'd rate a flat zero. And that's when we hit the real crap:


A major plot point hinges on the virginity of the main character. There's not any assurance that this will be the last attempted rape in the series. As the plot's been set up, it's legitimately a quick fix to just make the main character have sex with someone - I assume the author meant to use this as some sort of verbal chastity belt, causing drama when she WANTS to have sex with someone, but in the meantime? Truly, the most effective line of attack for an enemy would be to rape Dana. In fact, given that the only other option is to go up against an immortal warrior, it would be both a logical and relatively easy choice. Ugh.

But I think what bothers me most is that after being pinned against a wall and nearly raped in front of her friend, Dana just blithely continues on.

I was unpleasantly surprised with this book. Dana is still in the exact same place, doing the exact same things, with the same people as she was in the first book. There is the small edition of the Erlking which brings in the plot for this installment but the air of excitement was minimal.

I appreciate the idea of the Erlking and the danger he presents as an antagonist but, for me, it just didn't flow as smoothly as I would've liked and it certainly wasn't as believable. For example, let's ponder for a moment--A larger than life, powerful beyond measure, evil being that can not be killed rides into town and word on the street is he's out to kill me--a teenaged girl with no real powers of my own. What do I do? Oh, I know. I sneak out of the house at night with some boy to go to a birthday party. Then she makes a long list of huge, life altering mistakes.

Now, this is YA book and there has been a lot of conflict between teens and their parents concerning the teenagers ability to make intelligent decisions. So, here we have a book that clearly defines this teenager as ignorant as she can get. Is this really a statement that needs to be made?

It was also very hard for me to really implant myself into this world because of the redundancy. In quite literally every chapter we are reminded in some form or fashion that Dana's mom is a drunk, she had to raise herself, she doesn't know her father all that well, she has feelings for Ethan but he's a player, the fae are inhumanly gorgeous... oh and she hates that they love tea. I do not enjoy being constantly reminded of the same minuscule details.

Dumb Publisher Set Pricing is Evil
my answer is to buy the physical book if it is cheaper. I buy the e version if it is the same or less.

The redhead's name changes.
I noticed that too~ yeah, It has to be the same girl. I'm guessing she was debating on whether to call her Tiffany or Ashley, and then accidentally called her Ashley and the editor didn't pick it up?
