Publisher: Patchwork Press
Series: Ennara #2
When strange accidents start happening around thirteen year-old necromancer Ennara and her friends, she must search for the mysterious stolen artifacts causing the attacks while learning the highest form of magic--the spells that could prevent the fruition of a terrible prophecy.
The Cover: This book has an absolutely beautiful cover. A Pegasus being chased by a scary looking dragon. Very colorful, just like the original cover. An exciting cover that could be taken right out of a graphic novel if the author chose to publish it in that form.
The Plot: Wow, what a return Ennara and her friends make. Even better than the first book. The plot was even more intense; I literally finished this book in 2 days again. Again, very well written, Ennara and the Book of Shadows had great pacing, great descriptions, and very well crafted battle scenes.
Characters: I was a little worried that this book would be absent a few friends from the last book. So, I was very happy to have the gang back together, plus a new friend. The characters were all very well created and it’s nice to see them all growing both in personality and their abilities. I liked that Ennara works closely with her aunt and uncle on this one. I also really like the new member of their circle, but I won’t divulge too much info. Don’t want to give any spoilers.
Is it Worth Reading?: Oh heck yes!! Like I said, even better than book one. I highly recommend both Ennara books for great adventures and am totally hooked, looking forward to Ennara and the Silver Throne. I give Ennara and the Book of Shadows 5 out of 5 crossbows.
