Willow Moss and the Forgotten Tale Book Review

Willow Moss and the Forgotten Tale

The youngest daughter and youngest witch in a family of witches, Willow Moss is 13 years old. She lacks the strength of her sisters and is only endowed with the ability to locate misplaced items.

Something is wrong in Starfell; nobody can recall what occurred on Tuesday or even if it really happened. By Wednesday, Starfell’s most powerful witch, Moreg Vaine, had figured out what was going on. She tracked out Willow Moss and, accompanied by Oswin, the monster from under Willow’s bed, headed out in search of explanations.

Along the way, the Brothers of Wol, a group of monks who are opposed to magic and believe that individuals with the gift are possessed by the devil, capture and imprison Moreg. Without Moreg and her undeniable skill, Willow must come to the rescue. She makes friends with a dragon named Feathering, an ogre, and an Oublier named Nolin Sometimes, who can see into the past and reveal hidden truths. The Brothers of Wol are, of course, the antagonists. Silas, one of the boys, is actually a wizard with a vengeful, wicked heart.

A wicked witch who uses potions to protect a horrible secret is also present, and she is set on harming Willow Moss.

In the end, a pretty dramatic and fatal scene saw the magic that had stolen Tuesday returned to its rightful owner. The day had been located and restored, and Silas was safely imprisoned. The only people who remembered it were Willow and her new friends, and that was a problem.

That’s why Willow Moss’s accomplishments seem commonplace to outsiders. The tragedy that befell Willow Moss’s family on Tuesday is resurrected, making things even worse. It’s a heartbreaking conclusion.

Sometimes, Nolin will send a message to Willow Moss via leaf mail, which will be delivered by an oak tree. He merely saw his own abduction coming. Willow tries to explain to her loved ones why she needs to go to the aid right away. The problem is that Willow’s magic has recently become very.

Since the passing of a beloved one, Willow Moss’s power of conjuring has shifted toward that of dispelling. Even worse, she has no say in what vanishes, when it happens, or when it reappear. When half your house and part of your family members vanish, it’s not good.

Her loved ones are concerned that she may require assistance. Don’t take her word that she encountered an oublier or the dragon; instead, attribute her agitation and worry.

Having successfully hidden her loved ones, she escapes and sets out with everyone’s favorite grumpy Kolbold, Oswin, to find Nolin and his kidnappers. She’ll be going deep into Starfell, Neatherfell, in search of answers and her pal Nolan.

She will be kidnapped at least once, have attempts made to treat her ‘hazardous’ habit, and come into contact with a wide variety of interesting (and sometimes terrifying) characters.

The wraiths were mentioned, right? No, well, some of them are bad guys too. New characters are introduced, and they play an important role in the journey that will lead little Willow Moss to unfamiliar territory and, essentially, the pits of hell.

Whether or whether she makes sense of it all and stays alive depends on one thing. It’s also not something trivial. The question is whether or not she can see what she must do in the midst of overwhelming grief, uncertainty, mistrust, and betrayal from those she cares about. More importantly, she needs to discover an inner source of faith. That’s a lot to expect of a tiny witch who always loses her belongings and has dear old Oswin camped out in her bag.

What about the Forgotten Tale, then, in light of all this? But here’s the rub: to find out what this means for the future of magic and Starfell, you’ll have to read on!

What did we conclude?

You can rest assured that this is an excellent follow-up to Willow Moss and the Lost Day. New allies are found, and a likable ensemble of characters is put together. Please don’t tell Oswin that, since he may very well erupt. Oswin is Oswin, and we get a clearer sense of the kobold’s softer side.

The story holds back a lot without depriving the storyline of action, which is something Mrs. H and I really enjoyed. A lot of information is not given out until the very end.

Until then, the journey continues without stopping for anything more than a quick break for tea and Rain Biscuits. It does a good job of exploring the history and present of the Starfell universe and its inhabitants. It also serves as a portent of future events.

Sarah Warburton, of course, is responsible for the beautiful illustrations found within and on the exterior dust jacket of this hardcover publication. We always appreciate and enjoy it when we stumble upon unexpected artwork.

Any further attempt to explain the story’s inner workings would involve giving too much away. That’s something I have no interest in doing.

If you are considering purchasing this book for your young readers (aged 8 and up), and perhaps reading it yourself before distributing it, then by all means do so. It’s essential if you’ve read the first book.

It’s good, wholesome, and entertaining, and it neatly expands upon and sets the stage for future adventures with overlapping plotlines.
