About this title

Synopsis:

In this great new adventure, we are reintroduced to Wolfbane, the escaped leader of the evil Night Witches. We meet him creeping through woods on his way to meet his dreadful mother, Lucia Cheeseman. Together they plot revenge on Abby, Spike, Hilda and Sir Chadwick Street, the heroes in The Witch Trade. Between them they conspire to summon up a long-dead witch who knows the secret of Time Travel, enabling them to go back in time to change the course of events leading up to the downfall. In doing this they learn about all the wonderful Ministry of Time and the Ministry of Coincidence and the wizards who run the whole show. This is an all-action follow-up, with plenty of humour, vigorous plotting and terrific storytelling - it is also a perfect stand-alone novel for boosting the reading confidence of children aged 8+. There are some outstanding set-piece conflicts - with an evil, giant spider, Baal, Wolfbane's familiar, a stunning secret underground railway and terrible villains.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7-Enraged by his defeat in The Witch Trade (Scholastic, 2001), evil Night Witch Wolfbane concocts an elaborate revenge in this less trite, more tongue-in-cheek sequel. Though the first episode's cast, led by intrepid witch-in-training Abby and stylish thespian Sir Chadwick Street, Grand Master of the Light Witches, is already bursting at the seams, Molloy adds yet more magical creatures, notably a donkeylike pooka with a wide brogue; a displaced band of mischievous woodland elves capable of tickling Night Witches to death; and a clan of powerful, bureaucratic Wizards with a mysterious agenda. Enlisting the aid of his loathsome mother and Baal, a jumbo spider, Wolfbane kidnaps Sir Chadwick's fiancee, Hilda, then travels back in time to change the future by killing an ancestor of Abby's. Abby and her many friends pursue, of course, plunging into a whirl of subplots, reverses, confrontations, narrow squeaks, and magic dusts of diverse properties. In the end, Hilda and Sir Chadwick are reunited, Abby's forbear is saved, Wolfbane is lost in the gulfs of time (until the next episode, no doubt), and Baal meets a deliciously squishy fate under the wheels of a train. Readers fond of sometimes-gruesome, sometimes-grand set pieces, and stout-hearted heroes of both sexes facing scenery-chewing baddies with names like Snivel Cheeseman, can look forward to a grand romp.
