Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
When a mysterious curse threatens to transform everyone into shadowy demons, a magical eleven year-old girl must travel to a sunken city ruin—fighting pirates, monsters, and an undead sorcerer along the way—to find a weapon that can save her world.
Don’t get me wrong because of my rating, I think Ennara and the Fallen Druid is a nice enough book for younger readers (middle grade). But for me, I didn’t particularly liked it all that much.
I liked the world, the shadespawn and the three kids getting thrown together on an adventure but that’s where my liking of it stopped. There were just a lot of things that didn’t make sense to me. I’m not going to go into detail about it much because I don’t want to give too much away.
The writing was okay. A bit mediocre maybe for my taste but I didn’t hate it or anything. The action was pretty much non-stop and there were lots of magical elements and unique creatures.
I like I said I think this book will be great for younger readers but I wouldn’t recommend it being read by kids younger than ten years old because I think it might be too scary for them.
All in all, Ennara and the Fallen Druid was an okay book for me. Lots of adventure, action, magic and a very fast read, which will appeal to middle graders a lot. I would consider reading the second book, but I’m in no hurry to do so. Maybe someday!
