Kate Ristau's new young adult novel, Shadowgirl, releases on May 20 from Lycaon Press. She will be signing at Reader's Guide in Salem on release night, and at Annie Bloom's in Portland on May 28th. Shadowgirl tells the story of fairy-teen Áine. She is haunted by darkness, and when her fey powers blaze out of control, she escapes into the Shadowlands. But she cannot outrun her past. Fire fey and a rising darkness threaten the light, burning a path across the veil. With the help of Hennessy, an uninhibited Irish girl, Áine dives into the flames to discover who she truly is. Her mother burned to keep her secret safe, and now Áine wields the deadly Eta. She must learn to fight in the shadows — or die in the flames. This is not a fairy tale.
