Freda barely survived a weredog attack, so you’ll have to forgive her if she doesn’t feel like saving the world. She’s only a teenager, after all.
The second installment in A. B. Wolverton’s The Witch Chronicles series, The Red Dragon finds Freda recovering from her terrifying near-death experience that closed The Reluctant Witch. While her magical powers may have saved her life (with the additional help of a few powerful friends, of course), it’s Freda’s sarcasm and humor that save her sanity. But these days, she’d rather be anyone than a girl destined for great things. However, when her plan to escape fate results in the abduction of her little brother Ben, Freda is forced to return to the struggle of understanding who she is, what she’s capable of, and what she’s been called to do.
A riveting coming-of-age tale racing with paranormal adventures, Freda’s continuing saga takes her to Ireland in search of her brother. There, the young witch meets her powerful extended family, encounters a dragon whose fate is intertwined with hers, and discovers that the kidnapping of Ben is only a small piece in a horrific plot about to be unleashed from the shadowy netherworld.
