|In a very short period of time, Brinley has gone from being a regular, somewhat invisible, young girl living in a small town in Colorado, to being one of the most powerful beings in the fantastic magical kingdom of Aberdeen. She definitely has her work cut out for her, being tasked not only with finding the missing mages and restoring their power, but doing it before the evil festering in the Wizard’s Ire has a chance to escape.|
In this installment of the Magemother series, we learn much about many of the main players in the tale, as we watch them grow and develop into their new roles and responsibilities. Not all seem equal to the task. Considering how young many of them are, this should be no surprise; many are given duties that most adults would find daunting.
The Paradise Twin is definitely a sequel, not quite as good as the first book in the series, I would say; and it is certainly a typical place-holder, mostly setting up play for the battle ahead in the final book. But there are many new characters to meet and locales to explore. It is definitely quite the adventure. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
