The Black Shard Book Review & Giveaway ends 8/27 daily WW

About

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.

Description
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

My take on the Book:
I loved reading the book as I fell back in with the life of Kristina. I felt like I was watching a part 2 of a movie but I was reading it. I did the same as before where I would read a few chapters and then my son would and we could talk about what we read. I really enjoy the authors writing style in these books and it gave me a way to connect with my son as we were able to read the book and it was a fast read for me and a great read for his level. I looked forward to reading and couldn't wait until my son caught up so I could read more. Again I would definitely recommend this book for anyone to read.
