Publisher's Summary

It's all happy ever after in the School for Good and Evil...or is it? The second title in the New York Times best-selling fantasy adventure series - perfect for girls who prefer their fairy tales with a twist.

After saving themselves and their fellow students from a life pitched against one another, Sophie and Agatha are back home again, living happily ever after. But life isn't exactly a fairy tale.... When Agatha secretly wishes she'd chosen a different happy ending with Prince Tedros, the gates to the School for Good and Evil open once again. But everything has changed and a happy ending seems further away than ever....

    "Epic"

    This story was the best book I ever read. I loved the mysterys and lies but thought Sophie should be with Agatha and Also that Sophie's not evil.

    Story
    "Proceed with caution!"

    I adored the first book and thought this one was going to deepen and enhance the themes and characters of the first, and it started to, only for the third book to undo most of that and make a shoddy, watered down version, fitting many of the stereotypes and tropes the first book was working against. Really don't know why the change in message.
    I thought this book was leading towards Sophie, Agatha and Tedros being gay/bi/pan but instead it was just queer-baiting and Tedros's misogyny is never called out and stopped for good, in fact he is nothing but applauded.
    This book was intriguing and the third book had some interesting ideas too, but overall I can only recommend the first book. I'm shocked and feel betrayed at the backtracking on almost all the things I loved that made the first book so progressive and unique.

    Story
    "The First Book was more exciting"

    Didn't like the voice choices used by Polly Lee, it's distracting how her voices for males vs females sound similar that I can't tell if the character talking was a girl or a boy. Story wise, I liked the first book better.
