In a Dark Land

320p. (A Changelings Story). Sourcebooks. Oct. 2017. Tr $16. ISBN 9781492634218
Gr 5–8—After nine long months away from Faerie, Izzy and her sister, Hen, are desperate to return. After saving Faerie from the evil witch Morvanna and discovering Izzy's true identity as a Changeling, the sisters are determined to uncover a path to the magical land and reunite with their friends. While searching the woods at Camp Kitterpines, Good Peter appears and whisks Izzy to Faerie. The joy of reuniting with Selden, Dree, Lug, and the other Changelings is cut short when Izzy learns that Faerie is once again in danger—along with Earth. The witch Rine is bent on ruling over Faerie and Earth alike, and Izzy's true identity may hold the clue that keeps both worlds, and everyone in them, safe from Rine's power. As the friends travel through mountains, forests, and secret caves, Izzy must decide whether she can make the ultimate sacrifice to save those she loves. This well-paced, magical story unfolds with equal parts action and poignant moments that delve further into the land and lore of Faerie. Izzy, Hen, and their lovable friends again take on challenges with wit and shrewd instincts while supporting each other along the way. This sequel necessitates background information from The Changelings, though readers won't be hard pressed to delve into the first and step right into Izzy's next adventure.
VERDICT A great choice for fantasy-loving tweens or anyone looking for an exciting story full of heart.
