Max Pendragon is not looking forward to attending Morgana le Fay’s Spell School. Not only is his cauldron producing slime instead of spells, but ever since he and his sister Olivia foiled Morgana’s evil plot against King Arthur, they know she’s been desperate for revenge.
With the help of Merlin and a mysterious bard, will Max and Olivia be able to outwit Morgana and save King Arthur for a second time?
The second book in the SPELL series, Cauldron Spells, follows Max and Olivia up to Lady Morgana’s castle in the misty lakeland of Gore. Olivia is determined to become a squire, and she’s extracted a promise from Sir Bertram – if she can win the squire’s challenge, he’ll let her train. Meanwhile Max will be allowed to train as a wizard if he passes Lady Morgana’s summer school with flying colours. Max and Olivia both have something to prove, but with Max’s cauldron bent out of shape, and the bullying squire Mordred out to get Olivia, things are not looking good. And it seems Morgana has plans to defeat Arthur once and for all. Can they find out what she’s up to, before it’s too late…?
Cauldron Spells was published in January 2012 by Templar. It was a Summer Reading Challenge read for Summer 2012. Like Frogspell, it is perfect for independent readers of 7-10, and appeals to both girls and boys.
