Black Shard Review

About the Book: 

"The Black Shard"
written by Victoria Simcox

"The Black Shard", Victoria Simcox’s fast-paced, intricately woven sequel to The Magic Warble, takes Kristina Kingsly and her schoolmates back to Bernovem … and into a thrilling, often dangerous adventure.
Kristina’s stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it’s all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester’s cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it’s actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can’t refuse.
Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends … and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn’t get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the “Black Shard”, Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag. Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it’s in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.

This is the second book in this series. I had the pleasure of also reviewing the first, The Magic Warble, so obviously I JUMPED at the opportunity at reading the sequel.  I couldn't WAIT to see what other adventures were in store for Krisitna, and Victoria does such an amazing job at weaving a fantastical world. 

These books would make an amazing gift for both young and old alike.  If you know anyone who enjoys a great storyline that is easy to follow and is ready for a fantastic adventure, add this to their Christmas list.  They won't be disappointed these books were truly amazing.  I was sucked in from the beginning and had a hard time putting the book down.  I only look forward to reading more of Victoria's work, for it is truly entertaining and engaging.

You can purchase both books in the series by author Victoria Simcox, The Magic Warble,  and The Black Shard .
