A Hilarious Sequel To THE WITCH TRADE, Featuring Memorable Characters Of Almost Dickensian Proportions And An Action Filled, Fantastical Plot That Literally Defies The Imagination In This Rollicking New Adventure, We Are Reintroduced To Wolfbane, The Escaped Leader Of The Evil Night Witches Wolfbane And His Dreadful Mother, Lucia Cheeseman, Plot Revenge On The Heroes Of THE WITCH TRADE Between Them, They Conspire To Summon Up A Long Dead Witch Who Knows The Secret Of Time Travel, Allowing Them To Go Back In Time To Change The Course Of Events That Led To Their Downfall This Sequel Offers A Hilarious Second Glimpse Into The World Of THE WITCH TRADE, But For Children Who Haven T Read The First Book, It Can Easily Stand On Its Own As A Brand New Adventure i loved abby clovers journey journey Abby Clover travels back in time with Sir Chadwick to stop Wolfbane and his mother Lucia Chesseman from committing unspeakable evil and rescue Hilda Bluebell With the help of Mandini, Spike, Starlight, Paddy the Pooka, Jack Elvin and the elves Abby and Sir Chadwick foil Wolfbane s scheme and return Torgate to its seaside town splendor.So basically this was a kids read I found an old copy lying around and thought the title was interesting I haven t read the prequel so I was a bit confused at first The plot was a mix of magic and adventure but it wasn t as action packed and intriguing as I would ve liked In some parts I felt like there was a bit of a lull and I couldn t finish the tale quickly But overall I enjoyed the story Lucia Cheeseman was a funny character but Wolfbane wasn t really that dastardly of a villain I loved Abby s character of course because she had the makings of a powerful witch The ending was good but a bit too abrupt I mean, after all they went through the bad guys were defeated just like that Oh, well It was still pretty good overall. Certainly a childhood favourite that I keep on returning to at least once year I would recommend this book to anyone yes it is for children but that doesn t stop it from being enjoyable for adults Also, I remember that it is pretty fantastic for reading aloud, perfect for story telling. A wildly inventive sequel to The witch trade We meet old characters and new as Sir Chadwick and Hilda Bluebell are about to get married but the evil Wolfbane and his equally devious mother are set to spoil things by going back in time and causing chaos It s another round of good witches vs bad witches with some evil sidekicks in the shape of an octopus and a giant spider named Baal.Exciting and fast paced it s another brilliant instalment to the series.
