In Night Shadows, the newest of the Star Friends series, best friends, Mia, Lexi, Violet, and Sita discover all the plants in the clearing are dying. They wonder if someone has used dark magic to conjure Shades, evil spirits from the Shadow World. When Mia uses her magical powers to look into the past, she sees a woman performing a spell nearby. After the Shades have infiltrated their home front, affecting some of their own parents, together with their Star Animals, they locate the source of the Shades, beckon them out, and send them catapulting back to where they came. At last, their terrain returns to normalcy.

This is a book ripe with mystery and intrigue. It’s about friendship, loyalty, community, and magic. The Star Friends and their favorite furry creatures want what’s best for all, and will stop short of little to achieve it. Youth ages six to nine who enjoy a plethora of twists and turns and magical adventures in a story are perfect candidates for this one. The chapters are short, making it a relatively quick read and ideal for those hesitant to embark on lengthy reading journeys. Additionally, there are adorable illustrations sprinkled throughout, breaking up the content into nice, bite-sized chunks.
