Overview

The Shadowmaster has been defeated and the witch sanctuaries are safe for now. But the effort has cost Jazz her life. Trapped in Talamadden, the land of the dead, the former Queen of the Witches is lost in a dark limbo until a spirit guide revives her memories. Desperate to reunite with Bren, she wrestles menacing harpies and shadows to find a way back to the living.

Meanwhile, Bren has become King of the Witches and is now in charge of the witch villages. But he abandons them to search for Jazz, his true love, despite the fact that crossing over to Talamadden would surely kill him. Will Bren and Jazz join up once again to fight evil forces intent on destroying the witches? Or will Bren's impulsive departure leave the witch villages vulnerable to the shadows?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8-10-Unfortunately, this sequel to L.O.S.T. (Llewellyn, 2004) is not very magical. Sixteen-year-old Jazz Corey, Queen of the Witches, is dead. She was sent to death's haven by the evil Nire minutes before Nire's defeat by her own son. Bren, who was unwillingly taken into the magical land of L.O.S.T. in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy, undertakes a perilous journey to rescue his queen. The setting is never fully described so readers feel as though all the action is taking place in an amorphous haze. Character development is scant, and the evil creatures never seem particularly menacing. Shadowqueen does not stand alone; there are too many references to the first book. Teens looking for a series about witches would be better served with Cate Tiernan's "Sweep" series (Puffin).-Michele Capozzella, Chappaqua Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
