J. A. White's The Thickety: Well of Witches is an epic quest into an enchanted kingdom with new kinds of magic, an old enemy, and only one way out. Fans of Neil Gaiman will love this third novel in the spectacular and twisty fantasy series that has readers and reviewers raving.

Kara and Taff know that only Grace Stone has the power to reverse her Last Spell on their father, and that in order to save him, they have to rescue their foe from the Well of Witches first. Forgiving Grace should be the hardest part of their journey . . . but soon the children are confronted by creatures called the Faceless, mysteries as old as magic, and an ancient secret that threatens their very lives. Back in the World, a war against magic is brewing that endangers everyone they care about. Can Kara and Taff find Grace and make it back to their father in time?

Fantastically imaginative with plentiful action, White's Well of Witches will please fans greatly as Kara, Taff and friends go on a journey into the World and beyond to save their father, stop Rygoth and stay alive.

The tone of the series has definitely lightened and is leaning more towards adventure and action. As always, Kara and co. are a joy to read, seemingly the only genuinely good people I have encountered throughout the series. Hopefully, they will get some help from the adults soon.

I consider this series a must read for middle-graders (and older) who love stories of magic, family love, true friendships and a good ole fight between two great powers.
