Cantrip (The Refuge Trilogy, book 2)
by Rebecca McKinnon

Published November 22, 2011

This is a pre-release review! Thanks to the author for letting me read it early.

She spent the summer in The Refuge.
Now, she’s come home.
Within days she realizes:

She wants back in.

Only two things stand in her way. The sister Narissa has protected for years can’t decide if she wants to go with her. And, of course, Narissa has no idea how to return to the splinter reality.

Complicating matters, Narissa discovers she can no longer avoid the problems her unexpected trip allowed her to escape.

Through it all, there’s one thing that keeps her going. She’s not the only person to have left The Refuge.


To say I was excited to read this book early is a bit of an understatment. After the cliffhanger ending in book one I just had to know what was going to happen next. The best part: I wasn't disappointed. There were so many things that I liked about Cantrip. Book two offers so much more backstory and I really enjoyed learning more about Narissa and what makes her tick. I also loved the snippets from Kauri that allow us to know what is going on in The Refuge. We get to meet Narissa's sister, and most important we find out who left The Refuge with her!

5/5 stars
