This sequel to RHIANNA AND THE WILD MAGIC stands on its own although exposure to the other books in the series would provide context for the setting. When Rhianna's father takes on a new apprentice, Eriseth, Rhianna's envy festers until she is overtaken by her wild magic, with disastrous consequences. Mikaela Martin provides a straightforward and steady narration. She presents Rhianna as a confused and impulsive girl who lets her jealousy get the better of her but then humbles herself to do what is needed to undo the harm. Martin uses degrees of assertiveness as an integral technique in distinguishing Eriseth from Rhianna, a technique that underscores their commonalities as they join together to save their community.
