This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Angela will be awarding a the winners choice of one of the following prizes (international giveaway -- All photos used from Etsy shops that she plans to purchase the gifts from. Actual gift will be sourced from winner's country and will likely look different for international winners):

1.  Dragon earcuff. A tiny dragon that wraps around your ear just like Ennara's wraps around her wrist! Ennara would not approve.

2. Potions master decal kit: Trick out your Kitchenaid with this decal kit! Ennara approved.

3. Emergency Potion Necklace: Potion/necklace dependent on winner's location. Ennara approved.

Or the winner may choose something from Ennara Swag (if they live in the US).

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.


I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. :) 

This book is an awesome follow up to the first one. ^_^

It follows Ennara and her friends on their journey after the events on the first book. Even though she most likely saved their world on the first book, powerful magic would always be frowned upon since it can go both ways (in all types of fiction lol). There are good and bad consequences to what happened to them in the last book and Ennara had a really hard time fitting in. This is her story after the newfound power. It's a story about accepting herself as well as what she can do. It's also about her being open to new things and listening more to others. This is a story of friendship, trusting your heart and following the good path. :)

I like that it carried on the action/adventure vibe with an oomph! The characters have more battles here and new msyteries are opened. I love how the magic remained and how the author seem to really connect with a reader like me because I swear I can see Ennara's and the gang's magic in my head. It's all good! I also like that the plot deeped. I think this book is longer than the first one, so there are more details. :) 

The love part also remained and it has bloomed! ^_^ I'm kind of happy with the cute pairing. 

I also love that many new characters are introduced here. My personal favorite is Cinne. I think in my head, I couldn't erase AKAZUKIN CHACHA (the anime) as their image. Yeah, I know they look like kids in my head, so the introduction of Cinne forced me to let go of that image- not that Akazukin Chacha is not good, it's just that they are kids... small kids- Ennara and her friends are older than them. :)

I adore their new companions (the animals). I like that they seem to be strong for our characters. However, I was always scared about their well being too. I hope that all of them will be okay in the next book.

I totally like how adults are involved in their quest. Their guild (haha!) or group learns a lot from adults and the love that these teens have for them and their entire community fuels their resolve to save the day. See? Pure awesome!

I won't make this longer. Just read it! I recommend this book of course to teens, to you young adults, adults who are young at heart and to those who just want to be entertained with action and adventure.

P.S. Yes, it still feels like I'm reading an RPG game! Amazeballs! ^______^

4.5 fairy wings!! JUST IN TIME FOR THE HALLOWEEN!!!

Now enjoy an excerpt:

Ennara looked at the pansy. Still dead. Then at her teacher, who was staring at her, waiting. The class remained silent. Didn’t he see the plant wasn’t alive at all? His expression remained questioning. Did she want to admit she couldn’t do this, and be separated from the rest to re-learn how to do a blessing?

She took a deep breath. A sideways glance at Kithe showed him smiling at the end of the desk. He shot her a secret thumbs-up under the table. Failure was not an option. Healing spells were a major part of light magic and she had to master the path of light. Fulfilling the good part of the prophecy demanded it.

“No, I can do this.”

The greenish glow filtering through the classroom’s life tree, an ancient, knotted maple, darkened as a cloud passed over the room’s large sun-dome. Outside, the wind picked up. The life tree’s broad leaves shivered. A breeze whistled through the castle corridor on the other side of the heavy wood door.

Ennara focused on the delicate head of purple petals and yellow stamen. She lifted a delicate indigo-stained pine wand lying next to her scribbled notes on healing incantations.

“Mag koil.” Make unharmed.

Nothing happened.

Darsys and her friends at the front of the room giggled. Inunsolus folded his arms, his white beard pulling the creases in his face into several versions of a scowl.

Ennara bit her lip. How was she supposed to rely on holy magic if it didn’t work?

“Mag koil.” She glared at the plant, imagining its stiff little cells burning with potent life force. A brief indigo shimmer fell onto a limp purple petal.

Her teacher inhaled sharply and took a step away from the bench. The pansy, lifeless only moments earlier, slowly curled and relaxed a leaf. Ennara had seen that shimmer once before. Last summer, when she and Kithe traveled aboard the Cissonius to the sunken city of Ililsa. And just before a cabinet of curios, including a severed hand, came to life.

The bloom slowly straightened, its violet color deepening to black. A faint hissing sound tickled Ennara’s ear. She bent toward the little plant, squinting. Suddenly the pansy lunged, revealing a row of crystalline teeth under its bed of stamens.

“Eeep!” Ennara bashed the little flower with the thick end of her wand. Green slime sizzled the end of the stick.

She wrote grant proposals for nonprofits, technical manuals for software, and freelance journalism before writing fiction.
