Hey there friends,
Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve just got back from a holiday in Egypt. Thankfully however, this means I’ve been reading lots of books so expect the updates to my blog to be back to it’s usual summer standard! This was the first book I read whilst on holiday and it was an incredible read. I can’t wait to share my review with you, so here it goes…
I received a free copy of this book by the book’s publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Another thrilling book is added to the Ennara series and it certainly doesn’t stop getting better. Though I must add, before reading this book you really need to read the first book in the series. This sequel follows on from the first Ennara book, Ennara and the Fallen Druid, with the same character you know and love and some exciting new characters too!
Ennara is at school and is as far away from being any professor’s favourite pupil as can be. A horrible series of events results in Ennara’s expulsion from the school by the High Druid. However, Ennara still has allies within the school and things in the school aren’t all they seem. Mysterious artifacts bearing dark magic are disappearing from Galdlan and people are acting suspiciously. Swept up into the chaos once more, Ennara and three friends are enlisted to locate and destroy these dangerous objects. But who is behind all of this? Can Ennara and her friends save everyone before it is too late? You’re just going to have to read the book to find out!
This was a stunning sequel to the Ennara books and more than anything, my excitement for the third installment has peaked. I really hope to use these books in school to engage and inspire pupils with reading. These are the kind of books which leave a lasting impression long after reading. As an adult this book was an enthralling read, but for children aged around 8+ it could easily become one of their favourite books!
Well worth a read and highly recommended. 5/5 stars!
If you would like to obtain a copy of the book, here are a few places you can get the book from: Amazon UK, Barnes and Noble or Waterstones. Please don’t just restrict yourself to these big retailers, support your local bookshops too!
