An abandoned castle, a valley infested by evil spirits, and a cursed family … an exciting new adventure for the River Hawks!
Twelve-year-old Izzy is excited to be spending the summer holidays with her Italian grandmother. She eagerly listens to spine-tingling tales of the evil spirits that once infested Val De Monio, in awe of the Guardians who did battle with them. But when Gran tells her about a Mazzapeghoul, a wicked demon, still inhabiting Malasorte Castle, Izzy starts to doubt whether her stories are true.
When her new-found Italian friends suggest spending a night in Malasorte Castle to prove it isn’t haunted, she jumps at the chance to join them. But things start going bump in the night, and they begin to wonder if the Mazzapeghoul is more than just a local myth.
Why did the last members of the family flee the castle in 1932, leaving it empty and desolate? Can Izzy and her friends solve the puzzle and break the curse on the castle before it’s too late?
Readers’ Favorite 5-star review:
What did you do on your summer vacation? Izzy visited her grandmother in Italy and what an adventure she had. Adventure in Malasorte Castle by Julia E. Clements shares the escapades of Izzy and her new friends as they learn of Izzy’s grandmother’s stories of evil spirits and haunted castles.
Izzy and her friends decide to spend the night in the local supposedly haunted castle to prove it really isn’t haunted. Izzy takes her grandmother’s spell book just in case they need to cast out any evil demons. Deciphering her grandmother’s spell book and putting the spell into action help the group become friends forever.
Adventure in Malasorte Castle is a fun read and will keep the young reader turning the pages. The prologue set the mood of the book and provided a great hook. The theme of making friends is one that readers this age will connect with. I also loved the building of relationships between a grandmother and her grandchild. With a touch of demons and magic spells, Julia E. Clements stirs up a story that the young reader will enjoy.
Izzy’s parents are going through a hard time and she worries about whether they will divorce. This issue is one that many young readers face today and the hope provided for them in the story – that things will be okay in the end – is a great bond for them. I recommend Adventure in Malasorte Castle for middle grade readers and, as an adult, even I enjoyed it!
