The family curse has been lifted and the Widdershins sisters: Betty, Fliss and Charlie are free to leave the prison island of Crowstone. But when a mysterious girl arrives at the Poacher’s Pocket with a pocketful of hagstones and accompanied by a will-o’-the-wisp, it seems another adventure has landed on their doorstep.
And when Charlie goes missing, it’s up to Betty and Fliss to journey through misty marches, past wisp catchers and on to a secret island that doesn’t exist on any map…
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 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.
