Erin Bow''s acclaimed, award-winning fantasy novel is now in paperback!

Plain Kate lives in a world of superstitions and curses, where a song can heal a wound and a shadow can work deep magic. When Kate''s village falls on hard times - crops fail, and even Kate''s father falls victim to a deadly fever - the townspeople look for someone to blame, and their eyes fall on Kate.

Enter Linay, a stranger with a proposition: In exchange for her shadow, he''ll give Kate the means to escape the town that seems set to burn her, and what''s more, he''ll grant her heart''s wish. It''s a chance for her to start over, to find a home, a family, a place to belong. But Kate soon realizes that she can''t live shadowless forever - and that Linay''s designs are darker than she ever dreamed.
