I found Shadow Spell to be slightly more action packed than the first book and I liked it that way.
-Beyond Books


In the sequel to Seven Sorcerers, Nin and her friends must save an entire world!

Simeon Dark is the most powerful sorcerer in the land of the Drift. Mysterious, cunning, and a shape-shifter, only he can stop the evil Strood and save the Drift from dying. But where is he?
     Nin Redstone and her friends make their way to Dark’s mansion—a strange castle built in a tree—where she finds a ribbon of shadowy light. Could this be a clue to unlocking the mystery of Simeon Dark? Meanwhile, Mr. Strood is preparing his distillation machine, gathering his pet tigers and some barrels of blood, and then he’s coming after Nin….
     Caro King has created a funny, rich, thrilling adventure, interwoven with fantastical creatures, myth, and magic.

A great deal of action is regularly stopped cold by explication, gory and funny parts and some delicious ideas in this confusing middle-grade fantasy.

There's some pretty gross violence, that might disturb younger readers (or their parents; I myself, being weak, could have done without one or two little descriptions of yuckiness).

To be totally honest I really wasn’t that enamoured by this title.
