The Scarlet Curse
Hester gets to have a picnic with a guy named Monster Mos Def she thinks is her son until he starts groping her. The song titles are run on screens, which are also used to project the translation of a local patois that a few sympathetic characters lapse into now and then.

The Curse in the Candlelight
Great book! The series has never disappointed me! I love the plot and the characters, hopefully there will be another one! Feb 15, 16BlandfordI rated it really liked it. I loved this book! An unexpected ending as always, and the mystery! I would recommend this book to anyone who has really enjoyed the other Scarlet and Ivy stories. Jun 16, The Teacher's Library rated it really liked it. By the end, I'm pretty sure I understand what the author was trying to do.
Now anticipating the final book, I'm interested to see how it ends! Jan 21, Seawood rated it really liked it Shelves: book-challenge , kindle , arc-review-copy , fiction , middle-grade. This does not affect my review. I'm happily surprised by The Curse in the Candlelight - this is the first I've read in the series and my heart sank when I realised it was book five.
However, at no point do you feel excluded from what's gone before - the exposition is handled deftly so that you get a feel for the girls' previous adventures, but are neither bogged down in detail nor left with questions which interfere with the plot. Curse in the Candlelight builds the tension neatly - it's rather a Goldilocks of a book in terms of plotting.
Not too fast and not too slow, leaving you with a book you're keen to continue without feeling rushed. The pacing is just right and develops all of the characters towards a satisfying conclusion. I liked Scarlet and Ivy immediately; their voices are distinct and complementary, and I look forward to reading more of their adventures in any order!

I would also definitely put this series on my wishlist to buy for the school library as some of my Y5s have just discovered mystery as a genre and I think it would be ideal. Mar 10, Amy Golden Books Girl rated it really liked it. The 5th in the Scarlet and Ivy series was as gothic and mysterious as ever, as new pupil Ebony McCloud arrives, and seems to have an unnatural influence over both pupils at Rookwood and the staff.
Another interesting point of this was that the relationship between the twins and their friend Ariadne was furt The 5th in the Scarlet and Ivy series was as gothic and mysterious as ever, as new pupil Ebony McCloud arrives, and seems to have an unnatural influence over both pupils at Rookwood and the staff. Another interesting point of this was that the relationship between the twins and their friend Ariadne was further explored, and it felt like a realistic scenario of not knowing how to fit in with each other and the tensions that could cause, and also touched on the idea of giving people a second chance.
The mystery itself was also rather creepy, and I had no idea what would happen till almost the very end I am far too easy to fool with mystery books, even though I read loads of them! If you want spooky and creepy MG mysteries with a hint of possible magic that still have a sense of humour, these are the books for you. Jun 22, Rogerio rated it liked it. My daughter was very exciting and waiting for book 5 to come out. So I ended up reading it too. It is Cleverly written of course but I felt the story is now weaker than the first 3 books had set out to. It looks very much like an "episode" than a continuation.
I also think she gives too much away in the beginning which makes you understand who is possibly behind the whole "witch" action, while previously you had to guess much harder how things were going to end.
The Scarlet Curse
It is also much darker than the pr My daughter was very exciting and waiting for book 5 to come out. It is also much darker than the previous books making it dissimilar to school kids day-to-day life while previous books had better links.
My daughter had to teach me that each book has the story focusing on a girl's past. This one was Ariadne's time, while the one by the Lake were Rose's and so on.

It is clever of her to have noticed that and it makes it more understandable. I'll try not to have to many spoilers. I loved how Cleverly brought in old characters from some of the characters past. The new characters are amazingly crafted and made to question who is really the victim in this. The book was well written and fun to read. We got an even better inside look on Ariadne past and a look at Sca I'll try not to have to many spoilers. We got an even better inside look on Ariadne past and a look at Scarlet and Ivy's home life.
Cleverly gave us a look at the twins step-mother. In the next book i'm hoping to find out more about the step-mother and on who the twins mother is. Thank you for reading. Jan 16, Nikki rated it really liked it Shelves: audio-books. Back at rookwood but with a more focussed storyline that really worked for me. No evil teachers, and no distractions, one storyline surrounding a couple of people.
And as much as I love the relationship between the twins and Ariadne, it was nice to see a little break in it, all friendships have their ups and downs after all. Good old fashioned revenge plot. One of my least favourite tropes but handle Back at rookwood but with a more focussed storyline that really worked for me. In the end people did get expelled, but the truth was confirmed. Sophie Cleverly describes the settings in this book beautifully, with lots of detail.
Precious Pearl: A Blessing and a Curse – The Red Thread
There are a lot of secrets that are kept and revealed in this book. The moral of this story is that you should not hide secrets. But, the characters still did! I enjoyed this book because it was scary and intriguing, which kept me reading. It was for this reason that the book reminded me of the Harry Potter series. While I enjoyed this book, I thought that it went overboard with detail on occasions — I just wanted to get back to the action!
