Candlewicke 13: The 13th Hour Begins by Milan Sergent is Book Four of the Candlewicke 13 Series. Valor McRaven accepts that he is a peculiar witch but the fact that he has never come of age has thrown him, especially after it puts him and Doomsy Gloomsy, his sister, in danger. The Grim Warlock’s desperation grows stronger and everything is about to change for Valor’s country, an enchanted place deep within the Bermuda Triangle. Valor has a major job on his hands – not only does he need to take over running his Mystic Steeples coven, but he also needs to salvage his sorcerer’s coven, a well-kept secret, all while trying to save himself and those he holds close. If he cannot succeed, the dark witches will force him to join their nocturnal world.
Candlewicke 13: The 13th Hour Begins by Milan Sergent is the fourth book of this truly mesmerizing series, continuing as we follow Valor and Doomsy Gloomsy deeper into their own story. This book follows all the others before it – a well-written sequel, a fascinating story, and a fabulous plot. That’s not to forget the characters; their development continues in this fourth book as the plot gets darker and the action continues. And these are action-packed books from start to finish. I would not recommend that you even attempt to read this as a standalone story – you must read the entire series in order, not least because this one, like the others before it, contains clues hidden throughout and a little bit more of that fascinating Encyclopedia Hoopenfangia. This is just another excellent addition to the series, and I can’t wait for the next one.
