Summary

An all-new story arc begins here!

The new grandmaster of Whitehall doesn't want Emily in his school. She's dangerous, he thinks. The only way he'll allow her to return to Whitehall is if she chooses to be a probationary student, a student who can be expelled at the slightest excuse, a student who has to work for one of the professors. Reluctantly, unwilling to leave her first true home, Emily accepts.

But she rapidly discovers that she's about to be pushed right to the limit. She's expected to do her studies, continue her private research...and mentor a group of young students who are new to the school. She has to supervise them, all the while trying to balance her schoolwork with her growing relationship with Caleb. It isn't an easy task.

And when Professor Locke starts opening the tunnels under the school, hunting for the lost secrets of Old Whitehall, he triggers a series of disasters that threaten to tear the school apart. As the staff and students struggle to survive, with the very walls collapsing in around them, Emily is forced to solve a disturbing mystery...and figure out what it has to do with her private research, before the entire school comes to a final catastrophic end.

good fantasy concepts, but....?

I've listened to all of these books so far, and I do enjoy the concept and overall story line. I have to say I find some of the emotional vehicles the author uses to be quite wearing, something I think is made worse in an audio book because it's easy to read more.

If I had a pound for every time Emily either winces, sighs, rolls her eyes or curses "inwardly" I'd be very very rich. It's damned annoying now.

I'm also feeling the reader, while consistent, and good at portraying the various characters has a constant anxiety in her voice which makes the books harder to listen to for long periods. I feel after this much time (five years for Emily) that Emily would have much less of this. I can only think its under direction from a producer.

In some respects, there's far too much emphasis on Emily's internal monologue and emotions, because its becoming very very repetitive, especially this far into the series.

PLEASE Mr Nuttall, can we have more pace of story throughout the books and less of this eternal struggle Emily is having in her head all the time. It very much feels like life happens to Emily and then she's forced into doing "something" in a desperate moment of panic in the last 4 chapters.

Emily's love interest Kaylib is starting to grate on me now also.

The next book promises to be good, however I'm dreading the amount of wincing inwardly I'm going to have to endure in order to get through it.

Awesome

I love the escapism that the Schooled in Magic books provide and this latest instalment certainly didn't disappoint.

Great performance by Truvia too.

Love Hate relationship

Honestly the author goes in really great directions in terms of story. But for whatever reason he loves having the main character be the most annoying, whining, and pathetic person in existence. She has overly large complexes and I really sometimes can't stand when he writes out what she is thinking. I fast forwarded at least 4 chapters worth of book because it is bloat, doesn't add to the story, and is irrelevant because nothing that the main character thinks about what is going to happen ever does. He uses the main characters wrong thoughts to then try and pull off a "what a twist" moment but once you realize that her mental ravings are never right then they just become a waste of time. The main character's thoughts are just as annoying as the main character from the Twilight series. Some times I find myself wanting to tell her to just shut up and do something already. There are almost whole chapters of complaining and worrying about NOTHING.

However when the main character isn't being annoying the story is quite good. This would be a solid 5 if he would just stop the annoying and extremely boring mind games and just write actual story. However without all that filler and useless side stories he would have a rather short book. You can easily knock off 5 hours of bs from this book and read the story and you wouldn't know the difference.

Best one of the series so far

Killer ending. Can't wait for book 10 to come out.
I am guessing if she finds her way back to current day Whitehall then she can find her way back to earth. The possibilities are endless.

Next Book PLEASE!

Oh man this series is great. I'm loving every minute. I've never been more excited to hear the next book as I am right now. I'm going to cry when the audios catch up to the physical books and I have to wait much longer than a month to get a new book.

Tavia is wonderful as always and every book so far has been a treat. The only parts I did not like in this book (and all the rest) are the touchy feely love/relationship bits. They pull me out of my immersion and make me fast forward. I'm not interested in steamy romance novel content and I would consider this series perfect if there wasn't any.
