A brilliantly clever continuation of the Argonian series, where we follow Maggie, Colin, Moonshine and their various compatriots, friends, and loves through a breathlessly warm, tantalizingly tart, and wonderfully funny narrative filled with magical and non-magical life in all its glorious, messy, frustrating, hilarious happenstance.

I really wanted to like this. The characters were interesting, the plot held promise, but it was all buried under a mountain of leaden words. Pseudo-archaic, fake-formal words. I pushed through for a while, then put it down. I picked it up again a few days later, but I just couldn't find the trees in the forest of words. Sorry.
drôle et donc distrayant Vite lu mais aussi vite oublié ! Supporte mal la relecture en tant qu'adulte A réserver aux jeunes lecteurs qui partent à la découverte de la fantaisie
had looked forward to this book, hoping i9t would be whimsical and fun. It just wasn't clever enough to hold my attention,, and I just stopped reading t after about 75 pages, which is rare for me.

Maggie Brown was a perfect character for me to identify with in High School. She even had a best guy pal and a unicorn! Problem was how to keep the virgin-obsessed unicorn and still enjoy the guy. ;)
In this Sequel to Song of Sorcery Maggie Brown, hearth craft witch, is not about to marry. Much better to set of questing for Moonshine's laws.
