Summary, etc.: Zara's family moved to Kilshamble for a new beginning, but everything changed the night her sister was found dead on the village green. Two months later Laila's death is a riddle that nobody wants solved. Where were her injuries? Why was she so obsessed with local folklore? And what does all this have to do with David, the boy who lives at the big house? As Zara becomes entangled in an ancient magical feud, she is soon treading the same dangerous path that led Laila to the village green.

    Zara is obsessed with learning what her sister Laila was doing just before she was found dead on the village green in their small Irish village. David is determined to follow his clan's traditions, up to the point where innocents are harmed. As their lives collide, they must work together to stop a war between ancient enemies during the wickerlight, the time when the old magic is at its strongest. In her atmospheric follow-up to The Wren Hunt (2018), set in contemporary Ireland, Watson blends magical lore and rituals with mystery born of family secrets. Some readers may struggle with unfamiliar names, such as Oisin (oh-sheen), Mamó (mam-oh), and the Battle Crow known as Badb (bah-v), but Watson understands the power that names and local flavor wield when creating an immersive world for readers. Zara, who is of South African and Australian descent, and David share narration duties, which allows the author to control the pace of discovery and peril. Readers do not have to have read the first book to enjoy the second. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
