Cooper is turning many corners in her life. She is turning sixteen, having nightmares, learning what it means to be a part of a religion outside of the mainstream, and that with great power comes great responsibility.
In Second Sight, book three in the Circle of Three Series, author Isobel Bird cleverly blends the facts of how the Wiccan religion is practiced today, with enough fantasy to keep readers spellbound. It's a simple whodunnit with a magical twist.
Cooper can't seem to get a handle on her latest Wiccan lesson on scrying. But at the same time, she is having nightmares connected to the disappearance of a teenage girl. The visions begin to surface even while she is awake. With the help of her circle friends and her Wiccan elders at the Crones' Circle bookstore, can Cooper develop the strength and self confidence necessary to control these visions? Cooper finds that magical development doesn't come easy and sometimes with a high price attached.
Bird is providing a narrow, but accurate window into how the Craft is practiced today. These books give one of the most nonsensationalized representations of Wicca I've seen yet. Bird also accurately portrays many of the difficulties teens face when they wish to explore Wicca.
If you haven't read books one and two in this series, don't worry, this story stands alone on it's own and you will not feel too lost. But if you find the subject of Witchcraft and Wicca fascinating, you will want to read the other books in this series as well.
