Review by

Having defeated Dragwena, Rachel, Eric and Morpeth are now living at home on Earth, coming to terms with their powers. However, the witches, lead by Heebra, Dragwena's mother are coming for revenge. The scent of magic is just as breathlessly action packed as the Doomspell, you wont be able to put it down.

Spell-binding!I was 1o when i picked this book up from a charity shop, i might go there more often. I was a bit ticked of how i got the second book, i have never read the first, yet!I loved the plot, the magic and the witches! I liked how it was orinal but modernised, i fyou get my drift. Still witches in cloaks, but ith 4 jaws and snakes that live in fall towers this really appealed to me as i was going though a 'Magic' stage at school!I loved Eric and Rachel and the birds who made me laugh, i read it every second break for a week so i was proud of myself when i finished it. Morpeth was my favourite, i liked how we linked with the 'Cars are to loud and nerve him' because i hate roads too, that's odd for most people. My favourite animals/insects till this day are snakes and butterflies, no idea why i liked them before this book and after.
