Mystery with a gothic twist,
This review is from: Fire Spell (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 11 year old daughter thought this was excellent.
Fire Spell is a mystery written a gothic twist .It is a good book because it has got magic in it but it is not babyish fairies instead it's about witches and dark magic.
Clara is a wealthy girl from 1860 .She has lots of money but not so many friends. The closest she ever got was with two puppeters,a young boy and girl.As you read on and reach the end only then do you find out the reason behing the title.
I would recommend this book for 10-12 year olds as the story line is confusing for the younger reader.If you like a mystery ,gothic fantasy or a historical drama this is the book for you.If you like Eva Ibbotson or E. Nesbit you will enjoy Fire Spell.
