Cousins Owen, Holly, Chantel and Adam, are sent on another quest, in book two of ‘The Summer of Magic Quartet’. The wise one, Ava chooses Owen to look for her magic circlet. The circlet is hidden in the primordial Stone Circle of Avebury. It seems that their summer is getting more supernatural, with every passing day.

This book was wonderfully written. I have to admit, when I first started reading about a seven year old girl hearing the voice of a horse, it didn’t appeal to me. But once I actually got to know the characters, it was impossible to put the book down. The description is dazzling. The four cousins encounter magical beings that are mysterious, impenetrable beings that are hard to decipher at first glance. The author, Andrea Spalding, definitely brings the world of fantasy to a whole new level.

I would recommend this book for anyone eleven years and up. It is a fun and clever read, that you are sure to fall in love with.

Five out of five stars for Dance of the Stones; I always like a book with good descriptions.
