Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9–In this sequel to The Curse of the Raven Mocker (Farrar, 2003), Youmans returns to the secret land of Adantis, nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. When Ingledove and her brother, Lang, are ushered off to visit the grave of their mother, Lang finds himself obsessed with the music and beauty of a woman in white, Malia. Readers soon learn that she is actually an evil half-serpent, half-human who is out to kill him. It is up to Ingledove, along with the help of Jarrett, Master of Witchmasters, to destroy Malia and save Lang, all the while fulfilling her own destiny. Youmans weaves an average fantasy out of a mixture of Cherokee and Celtic myth. However, the abundance of historical background that is revealed through Jarrett's speeches leads to confusion. As a result, readers are unlikely to become attached to the characters. At the end, the conflict is resolved very neatly and somewhat prematurely. It almost feels as though Ingledove is only half of the story. If Raven Mocker is popular, then purchase this one; otherwise, it's strictly additional.–Carly B. Wiskoff, Great Neck Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. Like Youmans' previous fantasy for young people, The Curse of the Raven Mocker (2003), this one follows a girl, Ingledove, into Adantis, a hidden land in the Blue Ridge Mountains that is inhabited by magical creatures as well as people who count the Cherokee, English, Scots, and Irish as their ancestors. After Ingledove's older brother, Lang, is bewitched by a shape-shifting serpent woman, the siblings set out for Adantis. There they find their mother's grave, the dammed lake that has drowned their birthplace, and the evil creature who enchants Lang and threatens his life. Beyond all the associations with death, in Adantis they also find beauty, friendship, and hope. Jarrett the witchmaster foresees their coming and joins Ingledove in the perilous journey she must take to save Lang. The appended Adantan glossary discusses the meaning of words, identifies people and creatures, and explains aspects of Adantan lore. Besides the richly imagined setting and history, this fantasy offers a sympathetic heroine involved in an exciting adventure. Carolyn Phelan

Ingledove and her brother, Lang, set out to visit the grave of their mother in the mountains of the Carolinas. However, on their journey, Lang is enchanted by a mysterious music, resulting in complications that draw the children deeper and deeper into the land of Adantis. As I read Ingledove, I found myself connecting with Lang, feeling the lure of music, for me, the magical music of Youman's writing. Attempting to put the book down, I found that I, too, was hooked, needing to learn more about Adantis, the land of the Hidden People.

As with The Curse of the Raven Mocker, her first book about Adantis, Youman's writing is rich with description. Her books not only advance the plot, but they invite the poet in the reader to stop and dwell in the beauty of language.

As a middle school teacher, I'm particularly pleased to discover Marly Youman, for really fine writing is in short supply for this age reader. However, I'll not concede her writing solely to the young adult reader. This magical book will find its place on my bookshelf alongside The Curse of the Raven Mocker to be taken down and read again and again.

Review by my nine year old daughter (SPOILER ALERT):

I loved the sequel to The Curse of the Raven Mocker, Ingledove, because she had to go on a journey with her brother to heal her brothers wound by a snake bite from a snake that took the form of humans. My favorite character in this book was Ingledove and my second, I have to say, was the Witch Master. Ingledove was the main character and I just love main characters. Plus she was a girl like my age. And the Witch Master was just a really cool character and I like what he did in the story. I liked all the potions he had and that he could see into the future and past and where people were right now. My favorite part in this book was when Lang got healed. Something that surprised me in the book was when she had to take two journeys, one to find the Witch Master and one to heal Lang. This ending was way better. It was a happy ending and everyone was healed and lived happily ever after.

I read this book after a long interval between a fantasy novel. While a lot of people don't want to read a Tolkien-esque book, that was exactly what I was looking for. The book here isn't a heavy book of fantasy that has magic, fairy tales, and adventure. It is a simple small journey to the mountains after Ingledove's town was burned down and flooded with water. While I wasn't looking for a large series of books 500 pages or more I discovered after I read this book in one sitting that that is probably what I was looking for. However, I didn't know this book was a sequel and surely you don't need to read the first book to understand the second one. If you want a quick read filled with a huge description of every single event that is taking place then choose this book. At only 200 pages I thought that this book was still too long and at times boring. After they reach Adantis though the book becomes very interesting and the last half of the book flies by. However, I wish there was more humor to the book, even in its short length. I rated this book a 3/5 because I almost threw it down and didn't finish it and I felt that it was about average.

This is a marvelous literary MG fantasy, set in Adantis, a hidden world in the Appalachians that is a blend of Old World Scots-Irish-English settlers and Cherokee. The setting is uniquely American, and told with beautiful descriptive prose. The characters are all brought completely to life with just a bit of description and dialog, and the relationship between Ingledove, a young girl who is wise beyond her years, and Jarrett, the Master of Witchmasters, was touching and bittersweet. This book really deserves to take its place as a classic of children's literature. Youmans's other book set in Adantis, The Curse of the Raven Mocker, is also good, but in my opinion, Ingledove is even better.
