    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBI’m rather annoyed by the label ‘message fiction’ as I feel like it implies everything else doesn’t have a message Yet I suppose there is a sort of value in the term and implication about the focus of the book Shadowshaper isn’t a message book as much as it is a values book a modern urban fantasy that is solidly representational the sort of book that is likely to drive Bad Luppies into writing ranty blog posts However despite the values focus it is a solid story the sort of book I’d give any young readerIt begins with Sierra Santiago working on a street mural As she’s finishing for the day she realized that the mural of a decease

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBI really appreciate how grounded this book feels in a diverse but rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn The magic system springs out of ancestry and history but has been shaped by the long shadows sorry of colonialism and uneven power dynamics in the US And while the villain is obviously a big threat it feels like the real threat is the rising rent and how everyone is getting driven out of town by rich white peoplePutting on my Dr Spencer hat for a second in this book there's a lot of push back against cultural anthropology that real anthropologists would find unfair and also agree with The classic anthropologists were mostly the progressives of their time not the handmaidens of colonialism they're often depicted as today Contemporary anthropologists do their best to be advocates for the places that they research and th

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBTo be sure when a “random old white dude” fancies himself as THE anthropologist guru of urban spirituality systems and thusly thrusts himself into the mythology of the shadowshapers; no good can come from it Oddly the offended fury of the spirits and entities enraged by his pompous presumptions pales in comparison to the wrath our plucky Puerto Rican narrator Sierra is tougher than nails kinder than a kitten cajoling the reader to dive in and hang with her and the vibrant charismatic tightly knit crew that beautify their Brooklyn with gorgeous graffiti art and energetic enchanting

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUB35 stars This short book packs a punch A uniue urban fantasy that mixes Latinx folklore with the setting of Brooklyn introducing a uniue magic where ancestral spirits combine with art Shadowshaper isn't only about magic It also discusses racism sexism gentrification family ties and appropriation Definitely check this series out if you are looking for an urban fantasy that is outside the box

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUB Meh What can go wrong with a book with intricate worldbuilding diverse cast if characters and discussions of sexism and racism? Bad writing I tell you and bland charactersThe Shadowshaper had been on my to read shelf for such a long time and I was so excited to read it especially because of that beautiful cover but the thing is the cover was only interesting thing about it I didn't care for any of the characters I wasn't interested in any action and the only reason I read it till th

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBRead it Loved it Just WowLove that COVERFirstly nothing against Cassandra Clare whom I give props to for insisting the character of Magnus Bayne not be whitewashed by Hollywood but Shadowshaper is by far and away better than the Mortal Instruments series Shadowshaper is DIVERSE with an Afro Latina lead heroine Daniel Jose Older's New York looks like the REAL New York a hodgepodge of cultures and peoples who live and breathe and who have brought their uniue folkways to the city that never sleepsIt has been the height of depressing and rather freaking annoying in the IR genre to read yet ANOTHER book featuring a heroine who passes the paper bag test and whose long flowing locks are courtesy of some Native American ancestor I can talk about all the negative messages that sends but that's a post for another time or if y

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBI love this bookI don't know why this book series isn't hyped I vaguely remember hearing about Shadowshaper when it first came out but then I didn't hear anything else In fact I didn't even know the second book had already been released I can only assume this book series isn't bigger because its characters are all unapologetically Afro Latino and I loved it Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older is part fast paced magical action adventure and part love letter to Brooklyn and the Afro Latino community This book is so much fun and I loved the writing style Older writes the way actual urban kids talk not the way television tells us they talk I felt like I know the characters in this bo

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUB45 stars I listened to this as an audiobook and wow I'm tacking on an extra half star because the narration was just that good The main character is of Puerto Rican descent living in Brooklyn and the narrator did a fantastic job with everything fron urban accented teen speak to native Spanish wordsThe story was just so rich and multilayered dealing with uestions of identity family and social status Gentrification and the role of culture and colour are brought into play as well but all of this is done without making this book a book about that Those elements are what make up the daily mix of living and provide the canvas for the story; a story about a family in peril with their heritage of magic and supernatural ability on the verge of being lostI also have to mention the cover because not only is it one of my all time favourite covers ever it really does reflect the heart of the story here I can't wait to read

    Shadowshaper eBook µ ↠ PDF/EPUB tyrakel.de shadowshaper book, Shadowshaper ePUBIts heart was in the right placeI loved the author's ability to situate the story within a diverse New York and all of his sly commentary on racism and sexism though the sexism feels tacked on I love the idea behind the story But the execution just didn't do it for meFor one thing the stakes of the destruction of the shadowshapers were never made clear enough early enough in the story to motivate readers In most fantasy novels the author makes it pretty clear that the protagonist's failure will mean the end of the world but it doesn't need to be this dramatic An imminent break up or divorce illness job loss failure something Anything Instead for most of the boo
