Let's redefine "urban fantasy" to mean "fantasy novel brimming with uniquely urban communities, the immigrant experience, and people who struggle with urban violence, racism, gentification, homophobia, and police brutality." (Angsty white vampires need not apply.) Shadowshaper feels profoundly like New York, and the city verges on being its own character.

This came in my most recent Book Riot quarterly box. It's something I wouldn't have ever picked up to read in a million years. Much to my surprise I found it to be an engaging page turner!

It's the first book in a series and I'm not sure if I will continue with it but I think I might.

It's an interesting universe of ghosts and half-ghosts and I think maybe I want to know more.

It's fun to get out of your reading comfort zone every now and then!

This book as another mythology focused read. Also there first forway into YA. I thought this book was mash up of a bunch of different elements a chosen one mythology and also trying to raise a civlivation and so many other elements. I also liked this book focused on male lead. This book also was fun read, it gave me massive encato vibes in some ways. I also just thought the world and the mythology elements. I would def read more by this author in the future.
