Written by MarcyKate Connolly
My son and I read books together all the time. Every couple of months I nab a few books and we run through them, then we write the review together. It's fun, it keeps me close to my boy and it helps with comprehension and writing. It's homeschool thing. :)
Anyway Shadow Weaver, by MarcyKate Connolly, is an adventurous story about magic, friendship and an evil ruler. Let us tell you about it!
A strange comet runs across the sky and sends the world into a tizzy. Children all over suddenly take on strange powers. Powers that allow them to mold wield light, wind and more. So enters Emmeline. She's a princess, born with the power to manipulate shadows. She's lonely, deprived and has but one friend. Her shadow.
So when her parents decide she needs to be sent away, to a woman who's dominating the land, she flees. On her journey, Emmeline learns of a secret her shadow's been keeping. She also finds friends and must learn to trust in order to survive on her own. But mistakes are made and there are consequences for keeping secrets.
We LOVED THIS BOOK! The story, the characters and the the magic. It was an original tale where friendship was stressed and all misplaced. Connolly wrote in a manner that made us develop feelings for Emmaline and we cared what she went through and how she'd find a way out of it all.
We found that we knew what was coming before the ending. Even so, it's a fantastic read and any middle grade reader will love it. Check out Shadow Weaver while I move on the the next read. Cheers!
