The Lovereading4Kids comment
Six girls are practising their still unfinished magic spells when the ground just cracks open and swallows them up! Suddenly, Grace and her friends are in a mysterious and terrifying world of shape shifters and dark faeries. Will their magic be good enough to protect them? And can Grace manage to get them all home safely? An action packed adventure with plenty of magic to help it on its way.
The Watching Wood by Erika McGann
Danger wherever you turn ...When Grace and her five best friends are sucked into a world of witches and faeries, it seems like a nightmare. Forced to take part in the Witch Trials, they risk life and limb to compete against other trainee witches in magical, death-defying stunts. But when they are discovered to be mere humans, this supernatural world turns against them, and the real nightmare begins. Caught in the middle of an ancient and bloody feud, Grace must outwit powerful witches, avoid the clutches of menacing faeries, and bring her friends back together. But have the girls enough power between them to make it back home?
... I've really enjoyed the previous books in this series, The Demon Notebook and The Broken Spell, and once again, McGann has created a satisfying, entertaining page turner. The girls
; the dialogue sparkles; and the scariness is lightened with humour, without it reducing the tension. There are lessons within the story about loyalty, and seeing what's really important, but they are lightly done. And the castles, dungeons, fairy creatures and magical wizardry match pretty much anything you'd come across in Hogwarts. How good it is too to see an all-girl gang wielding the wands and taking centre stage? -- booksforkeeps.co.uk amazing -- The Primary Planet think she is an amazing author ... I think the ending of the book means there might be more from this group of young witches. I really hope so ... -- Bleach House Library an action packed adventure with plenty of magic to help it on its way -- lovereading4kids.co.uk
