Sirocco (A Little Moon from Crescent Moon Press)

Sirocco (Forest Magic, #2) - Diane M. Haynes This is the second book in the Rift Healer series. I have been eagerly awaiting it's release!Haley and Lacey Miller are seventeen year old twins. They are both great characters, but this book (and series) is told through Haley's point of view. Haley is an inquisitive and naturally curious person. I love that about her, but unfortunately, this tends to get her into trouble! Having previously managed to heal the rifts that were threatening the enchanted forest, will her tendency to act before thinking get her into even more danger?This is a fantastic story for younger readers (11+). There is magic, danger, adventure and mythical creatures! I loved The Rift Healer so much that when I found out this book was being released, I got myself a copy.I was very quickly thrown back into a world of magic, and magical creatures that I always fantasied about as a young girl. We get to meet a Sirocco. A sirocco you say? What does a wind over the desert have to do with this book? Absolutely nothing! A Sirocco is a mysterious creature that is half Pegasus and half dragon. A strange combination granted, but the author has painted a vivid picture with her descriptive use of words, and it has been brought to life in my minds eye. I could easily see it walking through the enchanted forest. Although this is a second book in the series, I think this book could also be read as a standalone; I suggest reading The Rift Healer too, though. However, the cliffhanger at the end has me wanting to read the next book as soon as possible!Diane Haynes has written a fantastically fast paced fantasy adventure for middle grade children, but I think that adults may enjoy it too. Therefore, I highly recommend this book if you love fantasy, adventure, magic, YA or stories with mythical beings. - Lynn Worton
