rating: 3 of 5 stars
I like Avi's historical fiction, like The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. The Seer of Shadows is not as exciting, but rather, is eerily suspenseful. The setting is New York City, just after the Civil War, when the art of photography is in its infancy. It is the story of a ghost seeking revenge, and the two young people who try to stop her.
