Ancora: The Fog Banshee's Curse by Miriam Pittman finds the Harper sisters stumbling into an extraordinary adventure. The Harper sisters - Kat, Lulabelle, and Rosie - have discovered a world called Ancora where magic is real and faces a dangerous threat. The three sisters have different reactions to their adventure. Kat dives right into the world where she finds wonder around every turn, Lulabelle is more cautious and afraid of what may happen, and Rosie just wishes to find someone to call a friend. Their adventure takes a dangerous turn when they discover that one of Ancora's provinces is being terrorized by the deadly Fog Banshee while the Spellbinder lurks in the background. The Harper sisters befriend allies that help them in the fight against the Fog Banshee and search for the identity of the Spellbinder who may be someone closer than they think.
The story dives headfirst into the action. The world of Ancora is incredible as Miriam Pittman has woven an adventure into every aspect of it to create a magical and dangerous place that draws the sisters back in and serves up opportunities for them to become heroes by stopping the Fog Banshee. The Spellbinder is an ominous figure whose identity is a mystery for the sisters to solve by driving them to look at their own allies. The three sisters have different personalities. Pittman captures each of the sisters perfectly to create separate individuals with each having qualities that can be related to. Kat is the one that's not polite and friendly, Rosie needs an inhaler in the midst of adventure, and Lulabelle sees things with a little more uncertainty. The world has a playful tone drawn from the characters to create a lighthearted adventure that is fun and exciting. Pittman uses unique names like Snugglwump and Piddlewick to add to the tone of the world. The sisters find a place for themselves as they make allies that help them fight against the Fog Banshee and navigate the world with Aidan, Maeve, Mr. Stewart, and Cathmor among them. Ancora: The Fog Banshee is an adventure that is spellbinding and will enchant young readers with a story about sisterhood, magic, and bravery.
