Title: A Curse of Mayhem (Alyssa McCarthy’s Magical Missions #2) | Author: Sunayna Prasad | Genre: Middle Grade| Publisher: Self-published | Release date: October 2018
Book Description: History, like magic, has a habit of repeating itself.
It’s been six months since thirteen-year-old Alyssa McCarthy left magic behind for good. Or so she thought…
Then the enchanted objects that protected her disappear. Now a skeleton named Errol has cursed her with magical powers that keep getting her in trouble. Suddenly strange things are happening with disastrous effects, and if Alyssa can’t remove the magic, she will lose everything she holds dear. In order to get rid of her unwanted wizardry, Alyssa will have to boost her bravery and confidence and determine who Errol really is. But every time Alyssa uses an enchantment, Errol is one step closer to getting his flesh back and becoming alive, and he will do anything to achieve his goals…even if it means destroying Alyssa’s happiness.
Originally published in 2016 as “Wizardry Goes Wild” and “The Unruly Curse” in 2019, “A Curse of Mayhem” is book two in the exciting and suspenseful “Magical Missions” series.
My Thoughts: Alyssa McCarthy finds herself living with her godfather and navigating a whole new environment — new house, new school, new friends. The last thing she wants is magic shooting out of her hands in class, at parties or during cheerleading practice. But that’s exactly what happens. Try as she may, Alyssa can’t seem to control the magic and as a result, gets in trouble at every turn. Truly, a curse of mayhem.
Meanwhile, the evil wizard Errol, now only a skeleton, converses with the soul of Master Beau to get back his flesh and find Alyssa. Using an invisibility cloak, Errol moves through society, stealing what he needs to become whole again and promising Alyssa communication with her dead parents if she helps him. But news of an exhumed grave set Alyssa in a whole new direction with a dark mystery to solve.
In the second book of Sunayna Prasad’s Magic Missions series, enchanted technology and wild wizardry, flying monkeys and winged unicorn zebras, join to create the surreal world surrounding Alyssa McCartney. This time with even more eccentric results. Her loyal friends stand by her side, even when inflatable snakes come alive and human-headed dinosaurs appear without warning. But with the wizard police under a sleeping spell, no one can help Alyssa, except herself. Written for young readers aged 8-12.
