review by Maryom
Bree McCready is back for another non-stop action adventure accompanied by her friends, Honey and Sandy. This time Honey's younger sister, Mimi, steals her half of the half-heart locket and finds herself kidnapped and held ransom for Bree's magical book. Can Bree, Honey and Sandy battle their way through to Castle Zarcalat in time to save her? There are new friends, though, to help them along the way through the strange land divided by the Flame of Irenus - some say it brings peace and light, others say it brings death and destruction and the two sides have fought about it for many years. If they reach the Castle, the Flame must be extinguished before Mimi can be rescued.
Bree McCready and the Half heart locket was a superb fantasy adventure but I think this may be even better. There are more monsters and gory oversized insects and the most terrifying chase through collapsing tunnels that I've read since The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.
