I was able to read book #2 of the "Witch Wars" yesterday ! I am anxious to see what happens next in Book #3!
The Rubicus Prophecy (The Witches of Orkney, #2)
by Alane Adams
REVIEW By LAWonder10:
This second book of "The Witches of Orkney" I would feel okay in letting older elementary children read. It wasn't as graphic and the language was milder.
In this segment of the series, Abigail has developed a further attachment. She also is plagued by a book and the three bullies, plus the leader's mother. Thankfully, she still has her two best friends from the first book. However, a couple of new arrivals may become included in this small circle.
This segment has a lot of mystery and creepy adventures. It is building into an very interesting culmination of events to occur in Book 3 ! The ending page is a strong lead into the third book.
Although this series uses many mythical characters, it is very intriguing. The new characters introduced are not so bizarre but truly fantastical. They are presented well.
I offer a Five Stars rating for this book.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This s my honest review.
