Any readers eagerly awaiting Helen's complex story? This book alternates from different view points, but ultimately focuses upon Helen. Helen desperately wants that love that Miss Scratton promised will find her. However, Helen's plans must be put on hold when a Dr. Franzen arrives. Dr. Franzen is a man from Helen's past and one she knows it not the kind High Master he pretends to be. Darkness is back at Wyldcliffe and Helen and her friends of the Mystic Way must find a way to completely defeat the darkness.

Helen's character is complex. She is more mature and very passionate about those she loves. Her intelligent, inquisitive nature leads her into trouble at times, but she is amazing at thinking on her feet. The reader will enjoy reconnecting with Sarah and Evie as well. The other characters have an impact on the outcome of this novel, one that the reader will not expect. Helen's love interest will be intriguing and enigmatic at first. The reader will love watching their relationship develop.

The events are fast-paced and many are very exciting. The author knows just when the plot is starting to lag and manages to insert an event that will have the reader finishing "just one more chapter." The ending is both surprising and slightly heartbreaking, the reader will want another novel in the series, but will also be satisfied with this ending. This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
