I adored the author’s previous duology, but unfortunately The Wizard’s Promise didn’t quite measure up.
Make no mistake, I still enjoyed it - strong female characters, action and adventure, magic and mayhem. I also love the way the author captures life at sea, and the moods of the ocean.
I did get quite annoyed that the main character was kept in the dark for so long, particularly when withholding information put her life in danger. Not cool.
There was just something missing from this book that prevented me from loving this as much as the pirate duology - that spark of magic, if you will. (pardon the pun)

This worked well when he wanted his godfather, which was often, but it became incredibly confusing when he sought a Weasley. There were many hasty rounds of pass-the-baby-because-dear-god-stop-the-crying.
What about when his hair turned pink and they could do nothing about it :’(
