The Serpent's Spell - Book Review

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Rae Bridgman wrote The Serpent’s Spell. The fantasy book centers around Wil and Sophie. They live in the wizards’ community of Middlegate, Manitoba. It is a secret community separate from the non-wizard population. Wil and Sophie are sorcerers on a quest to solve a mystery. Who is responsible for the slaughter of the snakes in nearby Narcisse?

Snakes are revered by the wizardry community. Wil has a pet snake named Esme. Sophie has a cat named Cadmus. He and Sophie try to solve the snake mystery while attending Gruffud’s Academy. The attack on the snakes happens before Wil comes to live with Sophie and his aunts.

The Middlegate community is a mild shock to Wil. Toronto, Ontario was his home until the death of his grandmother. She died in a row house fire. Wil and his grandmother lived as ordinary humans. Wizardry are in books and movies, not the center part of their existence. On discovering his new family are magical. Wil decides wizards in the family is better than having murders.

Wizards in the family should be fun. And, that is what is lacking in Rae Bridgman’ The Serpent’s Spell. The two ten-years-old cousins should play jokes and games with other children. Instead, they are constantly bullied.

Reading a book should be fun. Rae Bridgman’s The Serpent Spell is not a fun read. Maybe the chapters are too short. The average chapter is three pages long. There are chapters with only one page. No time for story or character development. For example, Wil is locked in the toilet on the train. He was out in less than two pages. Where is the tension?

Rae Brigman's drawings begin each chapter. There is a detailed map of Middlegate. Also, a drawing of Sophie's home in the chapter book. The Serpent's Spell is for children eight-years-old and older.

Readers who are interested in reading The Serpent’s Spell. The book is available at Amazon.com.
