Shadows of the Dark Crystal is the first book in a series of young adult novels set in the world of Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal and ties into the Netflix The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series.

The story takes place years before the events of the classic film and follows the journey of a young Gelfling woman who leaves her secluded home to uncover the truth surrounding the disappearance of her brother who has been accused of treason by the sinister Skeksis Lords. Praise for Shadows of the Dark Crystal: "With deft nods to the original Dark Crystal movie and a passionate attention to detail, the author has fashioned an impressive prequel.

Fans (who will instantly recognize certain elements) and newcomers alike will find themselves immersed in a new narrative, with new protagonists and dangers to face.

Readers who crave otherworld fantasy such as Jaleigh Johnson's The Mark of the Dragonfly and Paul Durham's The Luck Uglies will enjoy discovering this new series." -School Library Journal "While young readers probably won't have seen the film, the books might lead them to it; even if they don't have that point of reference, Henson's world is richly imagined here, and it will be well worth the projected four books to explore the landscape, characters, and storylines." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Characters and situations are compelling, and this first of a planned four-volume series aptly sets the stage and the conflict and tugs strongly on the heartstrings, setting readers up for more great adventures" -Booklist Before you watch the upcoming Netflix series, read the original novels from J.

Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Shadows of the Dark Crystal is set years before the events of the classic film and follows the journey of a young Gelfling woman who leaves her secluded home to uncover the truth surrounding the disappearance of her brother who has been accused of treason by the sinister Skeksis Lords.
