Description

From screenwriter Irena Brignull, the stunning sequel to her critically acclaimed YA debut, The Hawkweed Prophecy (Full of romance, heart and suspense . . . completely absorb[ing]. -- Madeleine Roux) about a young witch forced to choose between love and magic. Poppy is discovering a purpose for her powers in Africa, but she is haunted by a vision of her own death. Taken in by a boy and his great-grandmother, a healer, they vow to keep her safe-even if that ultimately means holding her captive. But Poppy never stops longing for Leo and, when she feels his magic begin to spark, she will do anything to be reunited with him. Desperate to regain Poppy's trust and bring her home, Charlock embarks on a plan to reunite Leo with his mother. What Charlock doesn't foresee are the string of consequences that she sets into motion that leave Ember all alone and prey to manipulation, the clan open to attack from other witches, Sorrel vulnerable to Raven's ghost, Betony determined to protect her son from his father's fate, and which leave both Leo and Poppy in terrible danger.

Review quote

The language is both beautifully lyrical and smartly succinct, and the high-octane action is perfectly underpinned by elemental, archetypical concerns, among them love, loyalty, friendship, sacrifice and personal identity. This series surges adrenalin levels, and quickens the heart. --Love Reading 4 Kids
