"A determined girl from Faerie meets a frank, funny Irish girl in a delightfully fresh fairytale of old meeting new."
--Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin
"A fun, engaging, and unique magical adventure."
--Jen Violi, author of Putting Makeup on Dead People
"This is a coming of age narrative involving fairies, but it's no Disney movie. The magic is considerably nastier and relationships more realistic and slippery. The folklore that Ristau pulls from is older, darker stuff; a heady mix of British Isles mythology, cosmology, and history."
--Librarian and Folklorist Charlie McNabb
"A fast-paced adventure with a fresh voice."
--Molly Ringle, author of Persephone's Orchard
"Fantasy braided with Irish folklore, making the reader's journey not only entertaining, but rich with fascinating detail."
--Blythe Ayne, author of The Darling Undesirables
"This is not a fairy tale. Don't expect fairy wings, but it is filled with magic, folklore, witty dialogue and epic storytelling."
--Librarian Robert G. Monge
"An entertaining, magical read."
--Joanna Bartlett, author of The Awesomely Amazing Adventures of Cherry: Butterfly Buddies
"I love it when a book surprises me. Shadowgirl kept surprising me all the way to the last page."
--Maren Bradley Anderson, author of Fuzzy Logic
"Fast moving and witty, Shadow Girl pulls on a journey from fey lands into our world through the eyes of Ainé , a mysterious girl on a mission."
--LeeAnn McLennan, author of The Dormant Series

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.
