The Black Shard -Book Review

About the Book:

The Black Shard, Victoria Simcox’s fast-paced, intricately woven sequel to The Magic Warble, takes Kristina Kingsly and her schoolmates back to Bernovem … and into a thrilling, often dangerous adventure.

Kristina’s stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it’s all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester’s cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it’s actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can’t refuse.

Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends … and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn’t get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the “Black Shard”, Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag. Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it’s in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.

Finally this book has hit the shelves!! The Black Shard is the sequel to the Magic Warble, which my daughter absolutely loved! (You can read our review here.) Both books are great for tween and teen readers, yet adults will love these books too. This book picks up where the Magic Warble left off, yet if you have not read the Magic Warble first,(which I recommend) you would still enjoy reading this book.

The Author, Victoria Simcox, does such a great job keeping the reader guessing and interested as she weaves the characters and story together. This book is full of adventure and just alittle romance as the characters are a few years older then in her last book. I don't want to tell you too much and ruin the story for you, but there are twists and turns and the way this story ended, the door was definitely left open. At least, I hope that Victoria is in the process of writing a third book.
