By sacrificing the death into Shadow's name, it seems that Laura created a significant precedent.

What's the consequence of the sacrifice dedicated to Shadow?

I don't think this is entirely clear. I'm also not sure if I should use spoiler tags here, so I will play it safe.

Shadow

is Baldur, a god and son of a god. It's possible the sacrifice empowers him somewhat, though Baldur is not a god of war per se. Recall that after the battle, and after he takes the coin back from Laura, he runs into Sam Back Crow. She is with a girlfriend. He slips some flowers into her hands but neither Sam Black Crow or the other girl see Shadow. So he's "behind the scenery" as it were. Perhaps that was partly a result of the sacrifice, though this is highly speculative.

    i'm not sure you should be definitely saying that Shadow was who you say he was. There are plenty of arguments that he is not. – tyson May 23 '14 at 11:42
