“The Younglings: Shadows and Magic” by Helena M. Craggs

The first thing that came into my mind when I sat down to write this review was: what a cosy book! Well, yes, I know it would sound strange if you read the description of “The Younglings: Shadows and Magic” by Helena M. Craggs, since it says: demons, vampires, and also mentions something about stabbing the supernatural creatures. But that’s how I felt the whole time I was reading it. I felt like I was being enveloped in a warm, familiar blanket that smelled of home-made cookies.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the beginning of a friendship between the characters. I always say that the ties people form between each other, be it love, friendship, or partnership of any kind, sometimes are formed on a level not connected with the rational. And Helena M. Craggs captured the origins of such ties brilliantly.

I also liked that the sixteen-year-olds don’t talk and act like they are in their forties. The author’s casual writing style made me smile and nod, imagining how a teenager would react to finding out that the world of the supernatural isn’t actually a myth.

I’d say that “The Younglings: Shadows and Magic” was an excellent read for me to unwind from the everyday duties and worries. I’m glad I’ve made the acquaintance with Quinn Carter and his team of the exceedingly lovely supernatural – and not only! – friends. I’m looking forward to meeting them again in the next book of the series.
