by on

Deadline reported, Anika Noni Rose’s production company Roaring Virgin Productions have acquired the TV and film rights of Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older.

You can read the full details about the acquisition below:

Shadowshaper, published in 2015 by Arthur A. Levine Books and named a New York Times Notable Book of that year,  introduced Sierra Santiago, who lives in Brooklyn and discovers shadowshaping, a magic that infuses ancestral spirits into paintings, music, and stories. But someone is killing the shadowshapers one by one — and the killer believes Sierra is hiding their greatest secret. A second book in the Shadowshaper Cypher series, Shadowhouse Fall, is due out in September.

Shadowshaper was a book I couldn’t put down,” said Rose. “At a time when so many are feeling powerless, Sierra Santiago is a young Afro-Latina heroine who finds her power within herself. Through a strong spiritual connection to her ancestors, the discovery of the magic living in her art, and with the help of some amazing friends, she saves her family, and her Brooklyn neighborhood from certain destruction. A face and culture we rarely see on screen; she is the heroine we’ve been searching for, only to find she lives right next door.”
