After defeating the forces of evil in Eldritch Manor, Willa must rebuild the manor — and her family.
Can Willa rally her supernatural friends to defeat an invasion from beyond?
After battling and defeating the forces of darkness, Willa is looking forward to a little well-earned peace and quiet. Unfortunately, her recent adventures have given birth to new problems, not the least of which is the task of rebuilding Eldritch Manor, a retirement home for supernatural beings, from the ground up. And no one is behaving themselves: Mab’s fairies have declared war on the dwarf construction crew, Willa’s Mom and Belle are feuding, Baz is running amok, Horace is living in the woods, the phoenix squawks all night long, and there’s never a dragon around when you need one. To be perfectly honest, Willa is starting to think the forces of darkness were easier to handle than her family and friends — until those forces start to rise again!
Trouble is definitely brewing, and the source lies very close to home, Who can Willa trust? Who will betray them? Who will open the door for the darkness to enter?
A must-purchase where there are fans of the first book and a solid series addition to most middle grade fantasy collections.
Shadow Wrack would be enjoyed primarily by girls ages 8–12 who are interested in fantasy stories, especially books with fairies.
This fast paced, often wildly amusing novel will grip the intended audience...an inspiring novel that will attract both girls and boys who will be unable to put it down.
