Ennara and the Book of Shadows by Angela Myron is book two from the Ennara Series. You may recall I reviewed book one Ennara and the Fallen Druid. Ennara goes on another adventure with her friends Kithe and Gevin. They must find artifacts then destroy the Book of Shadows that has cast a spell and spread beyond their school.
There is a budding romance. This time around, Ennara sees Gevin in a different light. Like the previous book, Ennara’s feelings are shown. For a middle-grade book, the romance is just glances or the touch of a hand or blushing. Ennara has to save everyone’s life in the end, which brings the group closer. It makes sense that there are bubbling feelings. Then there’s the new girl Cinne, who Kithe begins to like. Cinne has an earthy power that allows her to touch the ground and start an earthquake or sandstorm. Together Cinne and Ennara are dangerous with their magical gifts, which is creative and unexpected.
The politics are well thought out and could describe today’s chaotic, corrupt government. As the reader spends time at the Druidic Academy with the nerdy and odd professors it seems the Druidic Council tries to control beyond their reach. The Fallen Druid Ardewynn returns, who tests Ennara, but I don’t want to give away the ending. There is definitely room for Ardewynn to return in book three. Other characters like a robot, moving statues, pegasi, griffins, and dragons add a layer to the story.
Ennara’s complex world can keep the Ennara Series going for a long time. I can’t wait to read more of Ennara’s developing powers in book three Ennara and the Silver Throne.
Meg kaylo civa!
