Wizardry Goes Wild by Sunayna Prasad is Book 2 of Alyssa McCarthy’s Magical Missions. Alyssa McCarthy has finally got her life back to normal when magic strikes again. This time, Errol, a depressed skeleton, causes Alyssa to be cursed and, although she can perform magic, she can’t control it. Mishaps abound with disaster everywhere Alyssa turns, and the only way she can remove these powers is if she can become more confident and brave. That is easier said than done though, especially when she has to use a Skillometer to measure her confidence and bravery. Can Alyssa rid herself of these magical powers or is she destined to be cursed forever?
Alyssa McCarthy’s Magical Missions Book 2: Wizardry Goes Wild by Sunayna Prasad is a mixture of magic and modern. This is a well-written story, following on from Alyssa’s adventures in book 1 (which I did not read). I felt that although I hadn’t read the first book, my enjoyment was not impaired because there is plenty of description that helped me to understand the background. The character development was sufficient for a second book in a series and, although I found this an enjoyable read, I would recommend that anyone who wants to read it starts with book 1 first. There is plenty of action here, an almost never-ending supply of it as Alyssa comes to terms with her powers and simultaneously works to rid herself of them. There is also a serious side to the story as it teaches young readers about the importance of bravery and confidence in real life. Recommended reading for all young adults and a thoroughly enjoyable story.
