The Weeping Tide is the sequel to The Accidental Apprentice, and the second book in the ongoing Wilderlore series.
[Look out--there are spoilers for book 1!]
Barclay Thorne has just started getting used to being a Lore Keeper, with the help of his friends Viola and Tadg and their teacher, the famous Lore Keeper Runa Rasgar. But when strange events begin unfolding in the Sea, they're summoned to investigate them--and uncover a plot more sinister than they could have imagined.
Like book 1, The Weeping Tide was absolutely delightful to read--quirky, magical, funny, and exciting, I'm so glad there will be a book three to explore more of this quirky and imaginative world. The characters are all brilliant, with plenty of rivalries and personality quirks that make them all distinct; of the new characters, I particularly loved Cyril's apprentices. I highly recommend the Wilderlore series to readers ages eight and up who like fast-paced adventure novels brimming with magic.
