The Kingdom of Falmoor has been freed of its curse. The evil one, banished to the dark realm. Finally reunited after an eight year separation, Asher and Ariana Caine learn they possess magic - a magic more powerful when they're together. But the Caine twins don't have much time to discover their powers before they face a new threat. This time, it's not just Rhyme that's at risk, but also the magical realm of Coraira, as the evil sorcerer Asgall plans to take over all the world's magic. And he wants the twins' powers to help him do it. Can the twins defeat Asgall before he destroys everything and everyone they love?


Actual rating - 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4

I was actually very pleasantly surprised with this book - it picks up exactly where the first book of this series ended but everything in this book has matured - the world building, the writing and the plot.

More characters are introduced and everything is made a little more intricate and complex - a huge jump up from the first book for me. I also continued to enjoy the illustrations and I think that these are very well done.

There could have been a little more suspense built up for the readers to help make the 'revelation' more climactic however the point was still there.

This one ends on a real cliff-hanger which definitely entices me to continue reading, especially now that I am more invested in this series and the characters that Jaime Lee Mann is developing.

These books are very quick reads and are perfect for a young middlegrade reader who enjoys magical worlds and fantasy.
