will appeal to confident readers with a liking for fast-paced action and magical happenings
amidst all the magic, the portrayal of the girls’ relationships is a very strong aspect to this novel, with sharp observations and perceptive descriptions of behaviour and inner feelings, and the teen dialogue is spot-on
a talented imaginative writer
the anticipated follow up to The Demon Notebook, is a good adventure story full of fun, laughs and entertaining witchcraft
the twists and turns in the friendship between the five girls is well depicted by McGann and this is really where the strength of this book lies
the action is fast paced and flows nicely towards its climax
I am sure Erika McGann will win over some more fans with this one
an enjoyable read
a spell-binding story
the plot moves along at a near perfect pace and the reader is eagerly lured into each chapter. It's a hard one to put down!
exciting … every YA fan will want this
action-packed story … fans of fantasy will love this
a gripping page-turner with a fast moving plot, it will keep the reader guessing until the end
the multi-layered plot bounds along breathlessly, with crisp schoolgirl dialogue… the eccentric new characters make for an Irish Hogwarts, but the story is grounded in a believable school setting
lightly humorous story about friendship
McGann clearly knows her demonology, and there are some genuinely scary scenes in the book
a very exciting read that offers young readers something to think about as well as something to make them jump
magical mirth and mayhem ... a very readable tale for girls aged 10+
Erika McGann’s first book The Demon Notebook attracted good reviews and was a highly entertaining and convincing portrait of girls’ friendship against a background of spells and magic
In this the sequel, she takes the action and moves it up a notch so that although there’s still the same snappy dialogue and a good many laughs, this feels a much darker read
