Wildwitch 2: Oblivion
by Lene Kaaberbol
Age Range: 9-11
Twelve-year-old Clara has managed to escape the clutches of her powerful enemy, the dreaded Chimera. With her mysterious Wildfriend Cat at her side she is beginning to get to grips with her wildwitch powers that allow her to communicate with animals, and to harness the magical powers of the natural world around her. When Clara receives an urgent cry for help from Shanaia, another Wildwitch she knows she must follow the Wildways to find her. Together with her Aunt Isa and her school friend Oscar they make their way to the windswept clifftops of Westmark, where soul-stripped animals roam, and a dark magic waits. Clara’s new –found skills and courage are put to the ultimate test, as she desperately battles to save her friends and defeat her old enemy.
