Curse of the Forgotten City by Alex Aster

Tor has inherited some powers from the Night Witch.  He doesn't want them but he has no choice...

Sourcebooks Young Readers and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on June 8th.

Tor is with his best friends Engle and Melda and they are trying to find an ancient pearl to save the village they live in.

This book is filled with curses, magic, zombies, ghosts, pirates and more as well as various abilities to make their search more productive.

They end up taking another person with them.  Vesper is also looking for the pirate's pearl.  She wants to save her brother.

Tor has dreams where he talks to the Night Witch and learns more as he goes along.  Engle has awful nightmares about how he almost died.  Melda doesn't trust Vesper.  But they need her to find the pearl.

This whole book is exciting.  The prophecy says someone will die before the end of this quest.  That keeps everybody on their toes.  There are losses and gains in each chapter.

Who will be left at the end of their journey?
