Gr 3-7–War is on the horizon, and orphaned witchling Abigail Tarkana is in turmoil over the decisions she’s made—and the relationships those decisions cost. She is having a difficult time reconciling her own desires with those of the coven. Meanwhile, her best friend Hugo finds himself on the frontlines, against his own wishes and better judgement. Can the two find a way to end this war before it’s too late, or are they truly just the pair of useless kids everyone else believes them to be? This third installment in Adams’s “Legends of Orkney” prequel series, rooted in Norse mythology, picks up two months after the events of The Rubicus Prophecy. Readers will want to start with book one before diving into this title, as it draws heavily on the events of the previous volumes. Main and secondary characters all present as white.
VERDICT Another solid addition to a series fans of “Harry Potter” and “Magnus Chase” will love, with more yet to come. A recommended purchase, especially for libraries with the first two titles in their collections.
