I read The Salamander Spell by E. D. Baker. Princess Grassina lives the easy life with her mother, father, and sister, Chartreuse. Being the younger sister, Grassina is not expected to do very much except stay out of trouble while her older sister will inherit her mother’s magical powers and become the Queen and the Green Witch of Greater Greensward. To everyone’s horror, a terrible curse turns their mother from a good witch to a bad witch and no one is left to protect the kingdom. Chartreuse doesn’t get any magical powers and their father is hiding in the basement. Can Princess Grassina save the kingdom from the werewolves who are getting closer? Who will become the new Green Witch of Greater Greensward?
