5 out of 5

The Crowns of Croswald is enchanting. An immersive story that surrounds you with magic and the things fairy tales are made of, you’ll find it hard to put this book down once you start. Ivy is a brilliant protagonist, strong, smart, with a big heart and bigger imagination. I know this probably tantamount to heresy – but I actually enjoyed this more than Harry Potter. Perfect for fantasy lovers no matter how old they may be.

The Girl with the Whispering Shadow will whisk you away to a magical world. I highly recommend reading book one to fully enjoy this book. Ivy is back with a new quest and a familiar enemy. Watching Ivy grow not only into her powers but her confidence just makes you love her more. A brilliant second installment you’ll find yourself lost in the pages for hours.
