Shadowcry is a fast-paced fantasy about a girl who realizes she has special powers. Unfortunately for her, people who have special powers are hunted down and killed or enslaved by the leaders of her country. This leaves her no option but to go into hiding and form alliances with people from the underworld. I found this book fun to read but confusing because the author had to make up a whole new world and then explain it to us. I would recommend it to people who like fantasy.
