    Jumping jackdaws! 'A Sprinkle of Sorcery' by Michelle Harrison is THE perfect recipe for an exciting, action-packed sequel that not only honours the wonderful world that was built in 'A Pinch of Magic', but wondrously surpasses it in every way conceivable.

'A Sprinkle of Sorcery' by Michelle Harrison is THE perfect recipe for an exciting, action-packed sequel that not only honours the wonderful world that was built in 'A Pinch of Magic', but wondrously surpasses it in every way conceivable. I am so happy with how quickly we are thrust back into the world of the Widdershins sisters. I've missed Fliss, Betty and Charlie and everything that makes them unique from one another. Right from the first couple of chapters, we already have our adventure unfolding, with Harrison wasting no time to welcome us back to the oft-times magical but sinister Crowstone. Beautiful prose coupled with character spirit and I knew from the off that I was going to have an adventure myself reading this. And oh, what a wave of emotions I went through by the time I reached the end! No spoilers (this is in the synopsis pretty much) - Charlie is kidnapped and taken away from her sisters, forcing Fliss and Betty to hop into their trusted boat The Travelling Bag and save her. Not only that, but we have a mysterious girl with them, as well as an eerie will-o-the-wisp, opening up this universe that Harrison has crafted even more, making me hope beyond all hope that we will see more from this world in the future! I especially enjoyed the Crowstone Chronicles, adding a folklorish feel to the story that was already unravelling. I loved the adventure that the sisters have to undertake, made even more real by the atmospheric prose, genuinely terrifying me at points in the story. There are moments when I felt scared for character outcomes and I was never able to predict exactly where the story would take us. Fortunately, the tense atmosphere would sometimes be alleviated by funny retorts from all three sisters, not just Betty (though she still remains to be the funniest to me). Their dynamic is so genuine and heartfelt that it's hard not to feel worried when they are scared, and excited when they hit crucial points on their adventure. The characters have to be my favourite part of the story and the lessons they learn - because we learn them too. It's so heartwarming to see their growth. I hope any child (or adult!) reading this will learn something from the Widdershins, especially if they have siblings, because wow how I wish I had this book when I was younger, suffering as the middle child. It might have taught my siblings (and fair enough, me) a thing or two. Also, I went through the entire novel thinking I'm a Betty, only to realise I'm more the Crone. Ah, I loved this so much, and I'm gutted my journey with this story is over. 'A Sprinkle of Sorcery' has the sisterly bond of 'Frozen' and the swashbuckling adventure of 'The Goonies', making this follow-up more than just a sprinkle of sorcery - it's a stream of sensational storytelling at its best. And fortunately, it was never anything less than its best.

    Oh how I love Michelle Harrison's writing! It was so easy to fall back into the world of the Widdershin sisters.

It was so easy to fall back into the world of the Widdershin sisters. This one takes on a pirate theme, a quest to find a missing sister proving full of mishaps and adventure. I loved seeing the expansion of the world in this one. With the first being centred on a small group of islands, opening the book to find new islands on the map proved exciting to see. That sense of adventure in Betty's personality proves infectious when stories of these mysterious islands nudge their way into the book, and it doesn't take long for the intrigue to take over. I found myself flipping the pages with no problem at all, eager to find out how the stories of these new islands could possibly tie into the Widdershin's story. And I loooooved the folklore elements, once again. The addition of the will-o-the-wisp folklore was one I absolutely adored, the folklore surrounding that being integrated wonderfully into the story. The new fable of the three brothers felt effortlessly fairytalesque, the magic and whimsy balancing out the darker side of the story - and the "moral to the story" being learned, of course. The whole idea of getting through an adventure based on the lessons learned from folklore and history is just one I love, and I hope it continues into book 3. My only reason for rating this slightly lower than the first is the pirate/voyage theme. For some reason I just lose interest quicker when it comes to pirate stories. I still very much enjoyed the book, but the scenes with the pirate crew as "the problem" just didn't quite live up to my love for the first book. Something about them just didn't feel all that dangerous, so the tension was harder for me to gage. Still, for most of the book I enjoyed the adventure of discovering new elements to the story, and can't wait to see where it goes from here.

I want to send a big Thank you to them for that. (*)

I thought it's an excellent book for them to learn and adopt nice behaviors. It's definitely fun and nice to read for adults too. I enjoyed it immensely. If you enjoy reading middle-grade books, I highly recommend these books.

    3.5 stars. The Widdershins sisters are back for another high seas adventure with buried treasure, witches and kidnapping. When Charlie meets a runaway girl from the island of Torment who is followed by a mysterious Will o' the Wisp, she draws her sisters into a hunt for a forbidden and forgotten island to help clear her name. Just like A Pinch of Magic, the familial relationship is the highlight for me in these books. Fliss, Betty and Charlie share such a special bond that exudes warmth and love 3.5 stars.

They would go to the ends of the earth for each other, and sacrifice everything in between to keep each other safe. They definitely get this from Granny Widdershins, who is by far my favourite character. She's tough as old boots, fond of the drink and isn't above a bit of smuggling for a profit, but she loves her granddaughters with all her heart. I also liked the introduction of some new secondary characters, mainly Willow the strange little girl with the gift to sing to Wisps and Spit, the orphaned pirate. Both struggle with their morals and doing the right thing, especially Spit, and go through a lot of character development by the end of the story. And not forgetting Bandit. I love that mean little cat. The plot is quite formulaic and struggles to get off the ground at first, but there are certain scenes which I found particularly atmospheric and tension filled. The world building is pretty good, and I loved the inclusion of folk and fairy tales as a plot device. It added some much needed depth to the text. I will say that I found the ending a little abrupt, and thought that a lot of the lesser plot points fizzle out without any answers - such as what happened to Spot's parents and if anyone ever deals with the pirates wisps at the shipwreck. Howeverz all together this was a very enjoyable read.

    A really fun and magical story. Still love the Widdershins, Charlie is still my favourite shes just so mischievous and brave. Her reactions always make me smile. I think I preferred this one slightly more over a pinch of magic, but I think that's only from the setting, this had alot more of the sea in it and I was really intrigued by one of the characters but I won't say anything else!

I cannot wait for the next instalment because I feel that these sisters are going to keep with me for a long time.

A Sprinkle Of Sorcery continues on from A Pinch of Magic, and this time follows another witchy legend, full of pirates, treasure, grumpy cats and mayhem. Meddling Magpies! Betty, Fliss and Charlie (and little Hoppit too!) Find themselves in even more trouble during this Book, but their sisterly strength and spirit keeps them strong and determined. With their pinch of magic and their terrible luck... What could possibly go wrong?! Again the Book two for the Widdershin Sisters! Jumping Jackdaws!!!

With their pinch of magic and their terrible luck... What could possibly go wrong?! Again the writing sweeps you back up into the Widdershins magical world. I feel like Crowstone is my second home now! I can almost imagine myself walking through the doors of the Poacher's Pocket and having Granny shout at me! The beginning of the story starts off with the Widdershin family trying to sell their run down but loveable and homely pub/home, the Poacher's Pocket. When mysterious strangers show up, the trouble begins and another adventure is about to begin. I was hooked from the start but I found the action slowed a little in the middle, but then picked up at the end, and left me wanting to read more, and return to The Sorrow Isles! Overall, utterly captivating, and way more than just a Sprinkle of Sorcery, a whole spell book full of Sorcery, is more like it. I cannot wait for book number 3!!! *Thank you to Simon & Schuster for my Gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.*

    Book one having such a satisfying ending, I didn't quite see the need for the sequel. But actually, it is even better than the first book. This was such an exciting adventure story, with also had a lot of heart and emotional impact. We once again follow the Whiddershin sisters, joined by the mysterious girl Willow. Later on we are also joined by pirate boy Spit, and the dynamics between these five characters is an absolute joy to read about.

The atmosphere and tension created by the excellent writing are spot on, and exactly what I look for in my middle grade books. Things aren't simplified, too convenient or glanced over for the 'benefit' of its younger audience. It deals with some heavy topics , the stakes are high and there are some hard hitting and emotional moments for sure. With the curse broken the girls can go wherever they want, and Harrison doesn't miss this chance to extent and show us the world, and takes us on a great adventure with pirates, wisps, legends and mysterious islands. We are guided through it all by the bright sisterly love, and along the way get some great messages on trust, love and strength. I would give this a very high 4* rating. I had a great time with it and already cannot wait to see what the sisters get up to next.

I love the bond that Betty, Fliss and Charlie have, I loved seeing them meet and take in Willow and help her on her own quest, and they meet a a pirate called Spit - the relationships they have between the five of them is brilliant. Also Charlie never fails to make me laugh, she's such a typical kid, asking obvious questions and I love it. At the end of book one the curse is broken so the sisters can now safely leave their island for adventures, and they have a brilliant adventure in this book, which involves pirates, wisps, a mysterious girl and a hidden island. As much as I enjoyed the first book, I was a lot more gripped and on the edge of my seat for this book, and the twist near the end had me sobbing, I did not see it coming at all. I would definitely recommend this series, they're such light hearted middle grade books and (even though I cried) they make me so happy. I cannot wait for the third installment of the series to be released next year.

When unwanted strangers abduct Charlie, Betty and Fliss will do whatever it takes to get her back. Accompanying them is a mysterious young girl with a magical map and strange abilities. Together they will journey far from the dreary Crowstone and embark on an adventure that may just prove that existence of magic. There are 3 main things that I absolutely adore about this series: the sister, the whimsical magic and the book-within-a-book trope. I loved the strong sisterly relationships between the Widdershins sisters. I loved their fierce loyalty to one another and how were willing to do whatever it took to protect each other. Their dynamic complemented one another so well to deliver a highly entertaining story; Betty, the courageous, adventurous explorer, Fliss, the motherly, caring charmer, and little Charlie, the cheeky, animal-loving ball of energy. I appreciated the character development featured in this sequel, particularly I enjoyed that we got a little more insight into Fliss’ character because this series mainly revolved around Betty’s perspective and it’s refreshing to see some growth in other characters. I just love these three sisters and I wish them all the luck in the world because they’ve been dealt with too much bad luck already. I love that the world was not entirely magical and that magic was still something that existed in stories. I feel like those kinds of world allow readers to connect with the world as it is somewhat similar to the real world. And it brought that whimsical atmosphere to the storytelling and enabled the author to showcase the magic of stories, which is always something I love. Another aspect that I absolutely adore in fiction is the book-within-a-book trope, and I love how this series utilised that. The stories within the main story brought that extra pinch of magic to the tale and I just loved the story of the Winking Witch featured in this sequel. I honestly cannot wait to see the next witchy character that will hopefully be featured in the third book. Overall, I’m so happy that I ended up loving this more the first book and I’m highly anticipating what Michelle Harrison has in store for the Widdershins sisters.

    The girls wanted adventure and that's sure what they got. Be careful what you wish for! I really enjoyed the prologue. It had that Fairy Tale vibe I love, with a lesson to be learned. I hoped we would meet the witch involved, in the main bulk of the story, but not in the way I had hoped for. Just like the first book, it gave me great enjoyment to have more fairy tale vibes in the form of a story being told within this story, as it helped the sisters on their mission.

It just felt so whimsical and was done, once again, really well. Whenever I was longing for more of the fairy tale within the main plot, it cropped up at the perfect time. I loved the concept for this novel; pirates, wisps, adventure! However, when the plot unfolded and we met Willow, I would have liked to have a consistent inclusion of her. I totally get why it wasn't like that, and I think it's clever, but it just made me feel sad that she was so forgettable and that made me feel bad, because I was forgetting her too! I actually feel like this could be read as a stand alone, because the story was entirely seperate to the first book. In saying that, reading the first will give you that much needed introduction to our Widdershins sisters and also its just a great book. So read it. It did get to the point where I was wondering if this will carry on as the plot for the third book, but it also felt like it could wrap up in 84 pages. However, as predicted, there's so much more I'm left wanting to know about the witch and the island and Willow and the wisps... despite some big reveals at the end! Nevertheless, I do like the feel that this series has a different adventure and journey for each novel and I'm excited to see what the family will get up to next! Pick it up, give it a go and enjoy! >(^_^)< Gén

A Sprinkle of Sorcery has pirates, shipwrecks, and island which does not appear on maps, and full of mysteries to solve and antagonists to escape from. Betty, Fliss, and Charlie are all fascinating characters, each very distinctive from each other and full of character. I absolutely adore Charlie, who has a knack for mischief and a habit of rescuing all animals. Once again there's plenty of intriguing side characters, who join the sisters on their adventure, from a mysterious girl Willow and a pirate boy Spit and a lot of other pirates, rascals, and wisps. Harrison has created a rich world full of fantastical places, fascinating characters, and engaging plots with plenty of action and adventure. These are a truly great adventure stories - for kids and adults alike - and in some ways, rivals the classic middle grade adventures. Certainly a good addition to the genre and an easy recommendation. (A copy of this book was provided in return for an honest review.)

    Yeah... I’m really sad because i felt this book had so much potential but i just didn’t care. I am very much a character driven person so if i don’t care about the characters i don’t care about the story and that was what happened here. In the first book i cared about the characters because i had never seen them have to work like this before and i was so interested but in this one it just felt like the stakes weren’t high enough and the plot was too similar.

I also will say that sea books and books about pirates really aren’t my thing so that could’ve also played into it . i’m sad that this wasn’t good (in my opinion) but i still recommend the first one.

    Another great Widdershins adventure! I love all three girls, and their run ins on this one are brilliantly fun. Charlie asking pirates questions and being generally disappointed in their pirate-y ness was utterly fantastic, I was giggling away. I liked Willow too, and Spit. They added well to the group :) The adventure was perfect for a middle grade read - with lots of wonderful twists and turns, and a good reliance on myth. That was possibly my favourite part - the way the story within a story w Another great Widdershins adventure! I love all three girls, and their run ins on this one are brilliantly fun.

That was possibly my favourite part - the way the story within a story worked! And Betty knowing some of it but also realising she couldn’t do it all was lovely. Honestly this is such a lovely read, I highly recommend the series.

    Believathon, Book 6: TORN PAGE Not only was this a fantastic follow-up to A Pinch of Magic, it was also a sea-faring pirate adventure, which just so happen to be my FAVOURITE kind of adventures. The Widdershins sisters are such vibrant, loveable characters. I adore their sisterly bond but I also really love how they butt heads sometimes too. Charlie is the best, purely for the excellent eggcorns like confusing ‘immunity’ with ‘mutiny’. There was a really great supporting cast in this one as well.

I hope Granny gets to go along for an adventure in a future book.

    This book might be the one that gets me out of the horrible reading slump I’m having at the moment. I love the Widdershins with all my heart. They are different, flawed, but so, so, so amazing. Charlie is my absolute soulmate. The plottwist in this story had my gasp for breath and got my eyes very watery. I just love this series so much 🖤🥰✨

    Loved this second entry of the series, and this one had pirates too! Loved the story within a story element, the author is building such a wonderful mythology. I can’t wait for the next one!
