It is a spellbinding read full of excitement and suspense. A brilliant sequel to The Doomspell. * COOL READS * This is a children's book full of inventive touches great ideas, evocative descriptions, and page-turning pace. * VECTOR * The Scent of Magic continues The Doomspell story, but if anything the characterisations are deeper, the plot even more intriguing, and it is all carried off with a verve, pace and sheer passion for pure storytelling that make McNish's novels so compulsive. * AMAZON * Anyone who enjoyed The Doomspell will want to follow it up with The Scent of Magic, in which the battle between the Witches and Earth's children moves onto our planet. * THE TIMES * The language used is rich and evocative, full of visual and sensory imagery it captures the readers interest and imagination from the beginning and holds it with ease to the end. * SCHOOL LIBRARIAN * McNish tells a rattling good tale, and his well-plotted narrative races through some excellent twists and turns to a spectacular climax. * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH *
