The Shadow Keeper by Abi Elphinstone

Book two in the Dreamsnatcher trilogy, we pick up Moll, Gryff, Siddy and Alfie’s adventure to find the Amulet of Truth and destroy the Soul Splinter.

Having left the forest for the safety of a secret cave, the Tribe are waiting for the Bone Oracle to guide their search for the second amulet. The Dark Magic is growing in strength, and it’s not long before the group have to leave the safety of their little cove. Only this time, it’s not just the Shadowmasks they have to defeat on their journey. And, as Alfie leaves the Tribe before they’ve even begun, Moll wonders who she can really trust…

The perfect mix of mystery, magic and menace, this book will cast a spell on you, snatching you away into a coastal world of smugglers, sinister creatures, and guardians of the old magic.

Full of friendship, hope and a delightful, and disturbing clutch of new characters, to both help and hinder the Tribe, and an opening which is slightly less gruesome than it’s prequel, The Shadow Keeper kept me perched on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and with The Night Spinner on pre-order, I just about have time for my nails to grow back before the final instalment.


Great for fans of Harry Potter, Eva Ibbotsen, Piers Torday, Michelle Harrison and Robin Jarvis.
