My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tally and the Angel is an enchanting children’s fantasy series, and this is the second book which is set primarily in the Yukon. It is appropriate for confident readers in KS2, and KS3. It’s also an enjoyable read for adults, and would be a fun story to read out loud! There is some violence and suspense – as the summary suggests, Tally’s dad is in danger for part of the book. So parents of more sensitive or younger children might want to read the book first and prepare discussions. But Tally is a brave heroine and there are caring characters around her who help her to face her challenges!
I loved the setting of this book. I’ve been to the Yukon, so it brought back loads of happy memories! There are dog sleds and snow and tales of the Gold Rush and lots and lots of warm layers! Tally and her dad are both up for an adventure and so get to explore some stunning scenery.
This book has plenty of mystery and intrigue, to keep readers engaged. We learn more about Jophiel the angel, and encounter more ancient magic.
This book gets five stars from me. I’d recommend it to young readers who enjoy exploring new places in books, and stories with magic and angels.
