Aine's quest to discover the truth behind her mysterious past (and find herself, too) is a common YA theme. But Shadowgirl takes place in a world of faeries - parallel with Shadowlands (the world we know as humans). This Faireland is not a world of Tinkerbell (as I may have imagined). There are power struggles, violence, and secrets, too.
The beauty to me was that while the quest to find meaning and purpose is universal - there was darkness and magic and lore mixed right in. And this only added to the intrigue.
Looking forward to the next installment to pick up where we left off with Aine, Keva, Cerean and Hennessey.
5 stars for the beginning
2 stars for the ending
I loved both heroines. The had great chemistry.
Wish their relationship developed more.
Just really wished more of the plot line would’ve advanced.
Too many secrets. I also didn’t like the ending point.
Ciaran - I do not like his character at all. He is a controlling bully. Giving ultimatums - you can either be friends with Hennessy or me. If you choose her he basically becomes an enemy.
Her sister needs a few more scenes in this book for development etc.
Besides the great queer representation, I really liked the fast-paced adventure that winds up to a thrilling end. The two main characters, Áine and Hennessy, the aforementioned queer women, had a really cool relationship that was nice to see grow. Hennessy was also just so much fun as a character.
I loved seeing the magic and the mythology unfold as well as the mystery of Áine’s past. I can’t wait for a sequel!
