Gina is guest posting today with a review of the book I featured on Monday, MIDNIGHT OIL by Marva Dasef. (Gina received this book for review from the author.)
MIDNIGHT OIL is about a young witch named Katrina and her warlock brother Rune on a quest to bring their father to the mainlands and to find Andy, Katrina’s kidnapped love. On the way, Katrina and her brother get separated, and Katrina is stuck on an island with an unusual inhabitant. Rune is blackmailed by a dying tribe to get the Midnight Oil that will save them. Meanwhile, back where they live, Ilmatar, an air spirit disguised as a witch, finds out that her sister, with whom she shares a long feud, has been holding Andy captive to draw her there. Kat, Rune, and Ilmatar will all meet up to find the Midnight Oil, defeat Ilmatar’s sister, and save Andy.
One thing that could be better is a little bit of recapping the first book at the beginning because you wouldn’t be able to understand what’s happening if you haven’t recently read the first book. I enjoyed the book’s humor, including one character who speaks only in consonants! I’d recommend this to people who like an adventure story with a little magic.
Thanks, Gina for sharing your review of Marva's book (and helping out Mom with a guest post)!
