The second thrilling book in the Westwood Witches series will take you on an electrifying journey out of this world and beyond.

In between studying magic with her best friends, Lilly and Fred, Aero is frantic with worry for her mum and aunt. They disappeared searching for the Shadow Creatures and no one is doing a thing to find them.

Aero must go back to the Realm where the dark creatures are stirring. Their malevolent quest is about to set in motion events that could lead to the destruction of everything she holds dear.

Frightened and alone, Aero’s only hope is a new friend, a cat she calls Shadow. Can she find the answers she needs? And if she does, will it cost her everything? 

A Sorcery of Shadows is the second book in this young adult fantasy series. If you’re a fan of Philip Pullman and Harry Potter books, then you’re in the right place.

My Review ***** 5 stars

An exceptional second installment to a wonderfully magical YA Fantasy.
Continuing on from the first book we follow Aero on her discovery of her new found powers and watch as she grows in confidence. Taking a darker and more treacherous journey to save those she loves and the world as she knows it Aero must learn to trust her instincts forge unlikely alliances and make the ultimate sacrifice. The author has truly gotten in to the mind of this young witch and portrayed a very believable and extraordinary world. We meet some wonderful new characters and creatures including Shadow the cat. Everything you could want from a fantasy, magic, other world creatures, love, tragedy and hope. A must read. I cant wait to see where the author takes us next.
