Product description

Review

Praise for The Shadows

"McKinley's skill at building memorable worlds is certainly evident here: Newworld itself is as complex and intriguing as any of the characters, and the dramatic historical events that led to the current ban on magic are effectively woven into the story."
--The Horn Book

"Exciting action, lovable characters, and witty dialogue."
--SLJ

"A delightful read."
--Publishers Weekly

"Bound to appeal."
--Kirkus Reviews

Awards for Robin McKinley:

About the Author

Robin McKinley (www.robinmckinley.com and robinmckinleysblog.com) has won various awards and citations for her writing, including the Newbery Medal for The Hero and the Crown and a Newbery Honor for The Blue Sword, both about the magical country of Damar. Her other books include Chalice; Dragonhaven; two novel-length retellings of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Beauty and Rose Daughter; Deerskin, which was inspired by the Perrault fairy tale Donkeyskin; a retelling of the Robin Hood legend, The Outlaws of Sherwood; Spindle's End, a retelling of Sleeping Beauty; and two volumes of Tales of Elemental Spirits, Fire and Water (with Peter Dickinson). Her Imaginary Lands won the World Fantasy Award for best anthology and her novel Sunshine won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature.
Robin lives in England with her husband, the English writer Peter Dickinson, two hellhounds, a hellterror, an 1897 Steinway upright, and too many rosebushes.
