Two families, alike in dignity - and armed with powerful magic.
The Magical Families of Ashworth and Ashfall have been feuding for countless years, ever since something happened to split one family into two. Now, they have been invited to Cockatrice Faire - when no other magician would dare invite them both. And when it becomes clear that the Ashworth Heir and the Ashfall Heir have fallen in love with one another, Emily finds herself caught in the middle between two powerful families, each one capable of destroying her once and for all.

it started out with a lot of promise then quickly descended into a lot of filler words and not much plot.... not much actually happening....
the overall story had a lot of potential but the story is a bit too convoluted...
I might still give the next book in the series a chance to see if it gets better. .. who knows... it might.... there seems to be promise with the budding relationship with Caleb.... we shall see
Just when you think that the schooled in magic books can't get any better the next book comes along and its even better than its predecessors.
I rate these right along side the Belgariad, and I never thought that I would say that about any book.
"More! More! More!"
Excellent series!!! I am hooked but frustrated that I can't continue to listen on. Please add the remainder of the books to the audible site.
"She claims to know HISTORY!"
Yes I would but I have been let down the last 4 times so I'm returning this book.
Anger and Disappointment! The main character does not seem to be growing at all. She keeps making the same mistakes. She claims to know history but she flails to remember that real change takes time and fast change is history has always taken force.....meaning people DIE! She is the only person in the world who thinks the way she does but she wants everyone to just do things her way.
"Not really feeling this story"
There are times that I found this Emily character to be somewhat annoying and this book regrettably emphasis that fact. She supposedly does not want to be a Baroness yet she consistently uses the power of her position to change lives. Furthermore, she takes no responsibly in the care of said lands and yet again she uses the power of that title. I really hope this aspect her character changes.
"Stick up for yourself Emily"
I'm waiting for the day when Emily tells all these adults who keep berating her for honest mistakes to stick it. I did not think well of Lady Barb for her tirade. Those who know of Emily's origins shouldn't be taking for granted that she would know any "basic" information about their land.
"Love the story!!!"
The reader has a very soft tone and reads very well. When will the other books come out on audiobooks?
Really enjoyed the first 6 books.
When will the rest of the series be made into audio books?
I particularly liked the "Rory Williams" Easter egg.
I enjoy this series very much and hope the rest of the books will be available in audio soon. Travis Gilbert does a great job.
This book was slow and it seemed to come up with lots of ways people could be irritating to the main character. I liked the books before this one a lot more.
"keep'em coming !
I don't think I could call this series absolute favorite.
That said, I do have a bit of a slight addiction.
When I read the first book, I was just looking for a new series to read.
The first book finished. I thought OK, I'm willing to see how far Mr.Nuttall can take this idea.
That brings us to today.
I have finished book 6, Loves Labor's Won. I am now wondering if there's anything in Audible's power That could force Tavia Gilbert to read faster. Although, I know rushing a project can and will have an affect on the overall quality on the finished product .
THIS is a very good series.
Audible, KEEP'EM COMING.!
"Not my favorite"
I truly enjoy the world building in the series but this plot line fell flat for me. I had grown accustomed to the general climax from previous stories and this one just didn't have it. All in all, narrative was great as usual.
