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 is your typical writer. Which means she's an "experience junkie." She 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.

Customer Reviews

The first thing that I noticed, was that Dana is a very strong character.
Moirae the fates book reviews
Oh Ethan... I really love his character and I like that his play boy reputation causes Dana to really think about their relationship.
Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews
Or maybe I am just a sucker for the bad guy who knows, only the future books in the series will be able to tell about that one.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

I loved the book, but wouldn't want my teen reading it. The charecter and plot was YA, but the romance is way too much for teens . Nipples? Felt his hardness against me? Is this teen material? There was also alot of near sex and the main charecter was interested in or attracted to at least four people. Also some lame remarks that are over used in other teen books. "Thank you very much" Was used three times I think. Regardless I loved the book and the plot probably better than the first.

"I'm not the type to just sit back and let other people take care of my problems for me"
Dana Hathaway tries her best to make the most out of her "house arrest" state in Avalon as she can. But when the Erlking and the Huntsmen arrive in Avalon, it gets even more difficult for Dana to have a normal life. Is the Erlking out to kill her, at the behest of the Faerie Queens who want her head? Or is there something more?

I Liked:
Before I started this book, I was reaching urban fantasy burn-out. The last two (three?) books young adult urban fantasies (City of Bones, Entice, and Captivate) highly underwhelmed me. But I had liked Glimmerglass and seeing how I bought the sequel, I figured I might want to get it read now before I forgot too much of what happened.
You know that saying about how a sequel is worse than the original? So not happening here. This book is easily 10 times better than Glimmerglass--which is a huge compliment, as Glimmerglass wasn't a horrible book at all!
Our main character, Dana, is awesome. She remains a teenager, vulnerable and young, and yet I see more and more how mature she is, particularly with being raised by an alcoholic mother. She bites her tongue even when she wants to backtalk her parents (sure, she still does sometimes), she thinks about consequences of her actions (she works diligently to keep her feelings with Ethan in check, knowing what kind of a person he is), and she doesn't dump responsibility into someone else's hands. Sure, some of her choices are bad, but they also make sense to her from her point of view and make her grow and change.
Keane is a MUCH better character this time around.
