Soon after, other witches across town start to disappear.
Tiga and her friends set out to investigate and stumble upon an old, unsolved mystery that might just be the reason behind the disappearances. Can the girls use their witchy skills to save their friend and the city in time?

This the second book in the Witch Wars series, although the Witch Wars finished in the first book. After the Witch Wars, Peggy became the head witch and there are some witch's that are not happy about that. In this book, Peggy goes missing, and Tiga, with the help of Fluffanora, is trying to find her. There is a lot of things going on in this book. They are trying to find missing witches from both the past and present, information about Tiga's past turns up, the girls head up to the real world, someone is turning witches into dolls, and Aggie Hoof and Felicity are running Sinkville. Most of the characters from the first book have returned. Tiga is still learning how to use her magic. She is getting better, but still goofs every now and then. She is still loyal, determined and smart. Fluffanora seems a little self-centered in this book. She has one thing on her mind that she wants and she seems blinded to everything else at times. She still helps Tiga a lot, proves that she is a good friend and has some pretty crazy ideas to help solve their problems though. Fran, the fairy, is still a little nutty. She is not as present in this book but around enough to both help and hinder the girls. Aggie Hoof is again rather annoying. She lives to help Felicity Bat but also for fashion. She is the comic relief as she wears tights on her head and shoes on her ears. Once again, she inadvertently ends up helping Tiga. Felicity Bat is still the evil witch. She is behind the disappearances, which is known from the beginning, but how does she do it? Once Tiga figures things out, she gives up pretty easily, but if we remember that these girls are only 9 or 10, it is easy to understand. The illustrations are very well done. They are only black and white, but the detail is well done and you can just picture them in colour. The scenery is very detailed as well and you can picture yourself in the magical world of Sinkville. This is a series that young girls will absolutely love. It gives a powerful group of young females centre stage with magical powers. What's not to like? The ending, of course, leaves you hanging so the next book will be anxiously awaited. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of the book via Netgalley.
