You can cast this spell only in an area where no sunlight is present. Choose one humanoid or humanoid corpse that you can see within range. The target’s shadow becomes an undead shadow. If your target is a living humanoid, the shadow attacks the target until one or the other is destroyed. If the target is killed by the shadow or is already a corpse, then the shadow is under your control for 24 hours.

You can also cast this spell on an undead shadow you currently control to reassert control over it for another 24 hours, or you can include the shadow as if it were a ghoul when you cast create undead to reassert control over undead.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, you can choose one additional target for each slot level above 3rd. If you cast this spell to reassert control over shadows, you can reassert control over one additional shadow per slot level above 3rd.
