The thrilling conclusion to MaryKate Connolly's Shadow Weaver duology follows Emmeline and Lucas as they face the darkness once and for all.

Emmeline and Lucas are safe from the evil Lady Aisling and her soldiers for the time being. The only thing that mars their peaceful life is Emmeline's imprisoned former shadow, Dar.

Then one night the Cerelia Comet, the reason for their magical abilities, returns... but it's twelve years too early. The return of the comet can only mean one thing: Lady Aisling has a Sky Shaker under her control and is hoping for a new batch of talented children to add to her collection.

Emmeline and Lucas decide to journey to find other magical children to help in the fight against Lady Aisling. But when Dar escapes, and the two friends realize many of the children they seek have already been taken, they know they are in for the fight of their lives.

Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* This sequel to Shadow Weaver (2018) opens in an isolated house, where Emmeline and Lucas can practice using their talents. They live with Lucas' parents and Emmeline's former shadow, Dar, who is locked in a shadow-and-light cage in the attic for her safety. Their serenity is interrupted, however, when the Cerelia Comet comes 12 years too soon. This puts them in danger, as it means sinister Lady Aisling (Dar's twin) needs more flowers (actually transformed, magically gifted individuals) for her garden, from which she can harvest their power. Seeing Lady Aisling's soldiers outside, Emmeline, Lucas, and Dar escape to warn other families hiding gifted children. They soon detect something amiss and realize Lady Aisling's men have begun casting spells to take control of innocent people. Risking all, the trio sets about rescuing other children some with talents, some without and embarks on a high-stakes mission to thwart Lady Aisling and release all her flowers. Connolly again spins a magical tale; she deftly crafts moods and creates a sense of urgency that will leave readers breathless. The conclusion to the duology brings a feeling of relief, but a few puzzling questions remain, leaving the door ajar for future adventures, should Connolly choose to return to Emmeline's world.--J.
