    *Starred Review* Older knocks it out of the park with his thrilling conclusion to the Shadowshaper Cypher series. After the events of Shadowhouse Fall (2017), Sierra and her crew of shadowshapers have been split apart. On top of part of the crew sitting in jail, odd things begin happening to shadowshapers across Brooklyn, including threats, instances of stalking, and bizarre attacks from preternatural beings. Sierra realizes a war is coming that will embroil the four powerful houses and possibly destroy shadowshaper magic. While refusing to allow her loved ones to become casualties of the brewing war, protecting them will require a great sacrifice on Sierra's part, one that involves venturing to unknown places and the possibility of losing her way home. Shadowshaper Legacy stokes anticipation in the reader, sending twitching fingers from page to page until they reach the story's satisfying conclusion. Old and new characters provide additional resonance as they vividly spring to life, capturing readers' hearts in the process. Older excels at weaving timely issues into his urban fantasy, and this title shows Older at his best. Legacies, family ties, and confronting the mishaps of the past are all themes explored here, and young adult literature needs more books like it.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The conclusion to this best-selling and beloved series will have fans lining up yesterday. Stock up! Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
