The Last Shadow Warrior by Sam Subity - A Review & Book Tour


Hello everyone!!

Today I am really excited to participate in the book tour for The Last Shadow Warrior by Sam Subity , that is organized by TBR and Beyond Tours

Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of this book from the author. All opinions are my own. 

The Last Shadow Warrior is a middle grade fantasy book that was published on May 4th 2021 by Scholastic Press.

My Review

This book was really good. It is a middle grade fantasy book that combines Norse Mythology in it which makes it even better. 
I enjoyed the setting of the book and the story. It is a great adventure with many humorous scenes. It is also fast-paced. Abby is a really good character. She is smart and decisive and I loved the friendship dynamics of the three protagonists. 
If you like Rick Riordan books I believe you will like this one too.

Rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis of the book

Content Warnings: Main characters’s mother has died four years earlier and her father is critically injured and hospitalized for most of the book.

Twelve-year-old Abby Beckett is proud to come from a long line of elite Viking warriors known as the Aesir. She’s spent her entire life training to hunt the horrific creatures known as Grendels – the ancient foe of the Aesir – just like her mother did before she died. But there’s just one, small problem: No one has seen a Grendel in centuries, and the Viking Council wants to disband the Aesir . . . forever.
When her father is injured in an attack that leaves him in a coma, Abby is forced to take refuge at Vale Hall, a mysterious school in Minnesota where nothing is quite as it seems. She soon discovers the tables have turned and a Grendel is hunting her, but when she tries to alert the Viking Council, they accuse her of making up stories for attention . . . just like her mother did.
Desperate to protect her father and clear her mother’s name, Abby goes on a dangerous quest to discover the truth–a journey that brings her face-to-face with some unlikely foes, including a Ping-Pong-playing sea monster with a wicked backhand, and a dark Valkyrie with a fondness for bingo. Abby quickly realizes that someone at the school is trying to stop her progress and destroy the Aesir for good. And only she can unravel the sinister plot before it’s too late.

About the Author:

Sam Subity loves writing stories that explore the magic and wonder of being a kid and is thrilled to share his writing with readers everywhere—both the young in age and the young at heart. 
When he’s not writing, you might find him running the trails of northern California where the endless, winding miles past fog and ocean inspire stories of adventure and mystery. 
Or he might be mowing his lawn. Because that’s what adults sometimes have to do. 
But in either case, Sam Subity is very likely imagining himself fighting mythical creatures or at the prow of a dragon ship feeling the wind and sea spray on his face alongside his own Viking queen and their two Vikelets. His greatest hope is that in reading his books, you too may be transported to another place where, for a little while, you can exchange the ordinary for the extraordinary.
