The Sisterhood is the first book in The Sisterhood series written by Alison Clarke. Fifteen-year-old Opportunae (Oppie) comes from a long line of female warriors who are descended from King Arthur. Both Oppie and her best friend, Aurora (a fierce dragon warrior), love listening to music and reading books. When they overhear a news report of the world’s water supplies magically drying up at a phenomenal speed which, in turn, would lead to a desperate shortage of the golden acorn-eating golden salmon, Aurora and Oppie consult with the all-seeing Oralic for a solution. After a long journey to Senvelyn, Aurora and Oppie learn from The Sisterhood that the evil dragoness, Dunae, is using dark magic to dry up the water supplies so that she can secure all of the golden acorns for herself. In a rush to save Bovicandeas from extinction, The Sisterhood (with Oppie and Aurora in tow) chance entering the Secret Grove of the Nine Sisters in order to protect the golden acorn supply and destroy Dunae. Victorious in killing Dunae, they feel secure that their world is again safe. Little do they realize that Dunae’s son, Royzendeus, who is power-hungry and determined to control all galaxies in the universe, seeks vengeance against everyone who’d dared hurt any member of his family. With Royzendeus’ magic being far more powerful than his mother's, The Sisterhood’s defences are about to be pushed to their very limits, with shocking results.

While the storyline of The Sisterhood is extremely busy at all times, it actually works well and is quite easy to follow, as the picture which each scene portrays is well explained and presented to the reader. The characters are vastly different from one another, with each being a supernatural being descended from the greats of history such as Merlin and King Arthur. It was interesting to see such strong female leads that also have typical teenage interests, with similar tastes in books and music. Their fascination with magic and what happens in the mystical world brought a smile to my face as my interests are quite similar. Alison Clarke’s tale of good versus evil is intriguing, imaginative, and makes me look forward to what comes next in The Sisterhood series. If the next book is even half as good as what I have read today, I believe it will do well with audiences who enjoy action and adventure in a magical tale which is out of this world.
