Today I’m back with a review for Music and Misadventure book 6 in the Modern Magick series by Charlotte E. English.
You know the drill..here’s the blurb 🙂
Ves hasn’t heard from her mother in six years — until now. With nothing but a peremptory summons and some map co-ordinates to work with, Ves has no idea what to expect.
The short answer is: trouble, for Mother Dearest is in rather a lot of it. And like daughter, like mother, for there’s a shiny artefact in the offing, and only a few gigantic lindworms in the way. Who isn’t up for a minor little challenge like that?
It’s off to Faerie for Ves and Jay, for the artefact in question was once the property of the legendary King Evelaern. And as it turns out, the declining and dusty kingdom of the Yllanfalen may hold some unexpected truths about her past…
Ves is back for more mayhem and this time her mother is along for the ride…
After six years of silence a message arrives for Ves from her mother Delia Vesper, and with Milday’s leave she sets out with partner Jay to find out what all this is about.
As it turns out her mother is in a little trouble.. Lindworms..like Dragons..and dangerous..but that’s just the start of it.
After coming to her mother’s aid Ves and co start exploring..and they soon find a portal…but where does it lead?
What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure as the team are whisked off to other lands with legendary artefacts & sprites and oh and we meet….:)
Hey..i’m not going to spoil it all but this book in the series delves further into the main plot of magic decline and its origins but also Ves’s own family and their connection to magic itself.
What I’m really enjoying about this series is how each book has its own focus but you can see the bigger picture starting to form..even though I have no idea where the author is going to go next..the authors imagination means anything is possible!
This is a fun series that is developing well. The book/chapter length is short so this means it’s an easy series to get into and enjoy.
I was left with more questions than answers.. in a good way.. there’s so many ways for this story to continue and I can’t wait to read more.
My rating – 5/5 Stars!!
