Demon Witch by Geoffrey Huntington
Book II of The Ravenscliff Series isn't quite as gripping as book I, but still a good read. A fantasy saga of the Order of Nightwing this book takes the reader through time to the Middle Ages and fills in some of the mysteries surrounding Devon March. Appropriate for teens, the book is very readable but not quite as elaborately developed as a Harry Potter book (of course it is much shorter as well--276 pages). The main character, Devon is in high school, has a trio of friends who are in on his secret, as well as a mentor who is in conflict with his aunt.
