Book Review - The Little Grey Girl

The Little Grey Girl

About the Book

In the second book of the Wild Magic trilogy, courageous young Mup and her family are trying to heal and restore the kingdom when they uncover an ancient and powerful anger.

The old queen and her raggedy witches have fled Witches Borough, and Mup’s family has moved into the cold, newly empty castle. But the queen’s legacy lingers in the fear and mistrust of her former subjects and in the memories that live in the castle’s very walls. While Mup’s mam tries to restore balance to a formerly oppressed world, Mup herself tries to settle into her strange new home with her dad, Tipper, and Crow. When an enchanted snow blankets the castle, Mup’s family is cut off from the rest of the kingdom, and the painful memories of the old queen’s victims begin to take form, thanks to a ghost whose power may be too much for even Mup and Mam to handle. Celine Kiernan weaves a timely and essential truth into the second book of her trilogy: that dismantling oppression means honoring the pains of the past, and perhaps the most potent magic of all is encouraging joy and hope wherever possible.

My Take on the Book
This was such a great second book in the series. The book explores and tackles head on some real world issues even though it is in a fantasy setting. The book really brings out some powerful topics of friendship but also oppression, hope, bravery and more. From the moment I started reading this I did not want to stop until the end. You get great characters, an amazing plot and an environment that, even though it is fantasy, you can see through the veil of fantasy to the reality that is being exposed. This was a wonderful book that you will not want to miss.
