Mistress of the Storm, by M.L Welsh
Verity Gallant is an ordinary girl, so why did a mysterious man with a red coat in the library, give her a book and a strange metal contraption?
Soon after strange things begin to happen, her grandmother appears, who loathes Verity and seems to go out of her way to make life hell for Verity. If Verity’s best friends, Henry and Martha, weren’t there to back her up she’d probably be dead! But worst of all no one else seems to see the wrath of her grandmother; they all seem to think Verity is making a fuss out of nothing. But her grandmother is here for a reason and will stop at nothing to get revenge. Solving mysteries long the way Verity must kill her grandmother to save her friends and family from the rage she may unleash. But then Verity finds out things she never wanted to know and keeps getting the mysterious message: “The Storm is coming….”.
This book is excellent and very mysterious, it’s quite thrilling and a great read.
I would recommend this book for 10-14 year old readers.
My star rating is 5 out of 5 because it was and exciting and wonderful read!
