“Ireland's answer to JK Rowling.” Sunday Independent
"One of the best Irish books of all time." TV3AM
From twice-winning author of Ireland's CBI Book of the Year Award
Fans of Abi Elphinstone and Katherine Rundell will adore this fantasy adventure trilogy about witches and forbidden magic from a beloved and award-winning Irish writer. In the second book in The Wild Magic Trilogy, the queen and her raggedy witches have fled, but the kingdom is not yet healed. The castle is haunted by memories of its brutal past. The ghosts are angry, and one of them in particular possesses a magic which may be too much for even Mup and Mam to handle.
Kiernan’s prose is vivid, sparse and easy to read and it takes the reader on an adventure
CBCA: Reading Time
I do recommend reading this if you have read the first book – it’s small, but it packs a punch. 7.5/10
Kiernan’s voice is unique, taking its readers along brave new paths, involving them with a strong, independent young girl hesitantly using her magical powers, but always aware of how it will affect those around her.
