Genre: YA Fiction, Paranormal, Magical Realism
In book two of the Triple Goddess Series, Laura's story is unveiled as she navigates life after her mother's death. The viciousness of her father's mistress continues to haunt her thoughts, and she uses magic to guide her next steps. On her new path, Laura connects with a free-spirited man who pulls at her heartstrings, and their bond dramatically shifts the direction of her life.
Maggie's magical abilities enhance as she teams up with her new best friend, Polly. The girls unite through witchcraft to solve a problem that pops up in the small town of Hawthorne.
Can magic and fortune-telling bring clarity in the darkness for two young witches?
Sisters in the Craft is a journey of friendships that strengthen and break, budding love, and the mystical thread that connects three generations.
In full disclosure readers, before we even begin with this lovely book, I need to tell you that the author, Sage Adderly-Knox, has been a dear friend of mine for many many years now (wow, how long has it been!). I helped review her first book, Invoking Nonna, the first book in the Triple Goddess series, back when this blog was on Blogspot. Trust me, however, that my enthusiasm for reviewing this book is based purely on the fact that I very much enjoyed the first book and was looking to hear more from these characters. Yes, okay, I'm also very proud of my friend :)
In Sisters in the Craft, we rejoin Maggie and Laura in their juxtapositional lives. Maggie is dealing with the fallout of the happenings of Book I, and Laura is learning how to navigate life after being very much on her own. Adderly-Knox portrays these two lives for the readers in a near seamless way. We're able to join both women on their very unique paths that converge on the realization of their almost otherworldly talents. While Maggie's affinity of witchcraft grows with the help of her best friend Polly, Laura is barely discovering what it means to be different and learning to embrace those feelings of intuition.
Sisters in the Craft is incredibly engaging and I found myself getting lost in the words, page by page. It was very easy to become entranced in the world of witchcraft and the coming of age for both of these characters. It's an incredibly engrossing book that makes the reader care about the characters and their discovery of who they are meant to be. Adderly-Knox weaves their stories in a way that has the shift in perspective flow smoothly, rather than feeling jagged. At the end of this book, I was left feeling excited for what is to come for these beloved characters.
I recommend this book to any individual who enjoys coming of age stories with a twist. And as I said before, I personally cannot wait to see what happens next!
Sage Adderley-Knox resides in the magical land of Olympia, Washington, where she swoons over the breathtaking view of Mount Rainier. She is a writing coach, a single mom of three, and a vintage typewriter collection. Sage is passionate about coffee, kindness, and snail mail.
