Solid YA title--historical fiction with a "Harry Potter" twist.

Note: a small bit sitting on the fence between PG-13 and R territory, at least for me as the mother of a ten-year-old (when she first read it), however, I think that part sort of sailed under her radar. ( )

Enjoyable but not as good as Bewitching Season. ( )

After the events of The Bewitching Season, Penelope Leland accompanies her ex-governess to Ireland to continue her magical studies with Ally's new husband and father-in-law. Unfortunately, Ally is miserable with all-day morning sickness, and Doctor Carrighan's other students don't like the presence of a female, especially an English one. But Pen's visit is brightened by the patronage of Lady Keating, who is promoting a match between Pen and her handsome, charming son Niall. However, Lady Keating has an ulterior motive, one which will lead Pen into danger and possible heartbreak.

A worthy sequel, although it lacks the freshness of it's predecessor. ( )

Penelope (Pen) Leland has come to Ireland to study magic and prove to herself that she is as good a witch as her twin sister, Persy. But when the dashing Niall Keating begins to pay her court, she can’t help being distracted from her studies.

Little does Pen know, Niall is acting upon orders from his sorceress mother. And although it starts as a sham, Niall actually falls deeply in love with Pen, and she with him. But even if he halts his mother’s evil plan, will Pen be able to forgive him for trying to seduce her into a plot? And what of Pen’s magic, which seems to be increasingly powerful?
