I really hope there will be a second book. With how things are left off, it can stand alone but it will always leave you questioning. Overall, it not half bad.

I liked this book a lot, especially how it started out as a normal high school story and quickly developed into a thrilling adventure in an alternate world. Action, romance, friendship and mystery, but managed to keep a sense of reality. Good characters and story, and my only complaint is the somewhat unsatisfying ending that leaves me doubting whether this is the end or there is to be a sequel. Overall, pretty great.

A good story. A satisfying(ish) ending so I'm not sure if there will be sequels or if this is a stand alone book. Anyhow, it was interesting enough, but did lack more connection with the characters, I think. They were likeable enough (though I though Darcy's pals were all annoying hipsters) and Conn was nice...there was just something lacking. Overall, a really cool concept with the shadows and alternate world.

"The cityscapes are strange. When I look at them, I’m sure they’re some imginary city I’ve made up. Then I blink, and I’m convinced I’ve drawn parts of Chicago. Which is impossible. None of the images completely matches up with anyting I’ve seen." (page 41)
