Dream Magic by Joshua Khan {Book Review}

Dream Magic by Joshua Khan is the second book in the Shadow Magic series. It's not often you come across a middle grade fantasy series with death and destruction, but enough humor to keep the mood light.  #middlegrade #books #reading #bookreview

Dream Magic by Joshua Khan is the second book in the Shadow Magic series. It's not often you come across a middle grade fantasy series with death and destruction, but enough humor to keep the mood light.

Dream Magic picks up the story of Lily, who recently became Lady Shadow and the rule of Gehenna. Her ancestral home, Castle Gloom, is windowless, full of zombies, and haunted by ghosts. But none of this is scary in Gehenna, where death is embraced and honored.

We also pick up with Thorn, whose mysterious connection to the nation's Executioner, Tyburn, continues. I am anxious to read the third book in this series mostly because of the underlying suspense concerning Thorn and his future.

The plot of Dream Magic was a bit more convoluted than that of Shadow Magic and a few of the jokes here were a little too explicit for a middle grade book (mostly double entendres that many kids will not understand and talk of kissing), but this is otherwise a solid middle grade fantasy read.
