Product description

Product Description

Caitlyn Aguirre should have been a magician. Her family certainly expected her to be a magician. But by the time she reached her twelfth birthday, Caitlyn hadn't even managed to cast a single spell! In desperation, her parents send her - and her magical sisters - to Jude’s Sorcerous Academy, her last best chance to discover her powers.

But as she struggles to survive her classes without a single spell to her name, Caitlyn starts to uncover an ancient mystery that may prove the key to her true powers ...

... If she lives long enough to find it.

... I have a serious problem with the society it presents. As is normal human behaviour, Power = Wealth and Privelege. Power, in this case, being magical ability. Those with minor magic are dismissed as less worthy and treated accordingly. Unpleasant, but again, realistic behaviour. My isssue is that the adults (parents/teachers) and senior students, don't just ignore the casual cruelty of the kids' pranks, they actively encourage aggressive and malicious behaviour as a learning tool. They may give out detentions, but not for bullying, and then they harp on about not going over to the dark side. What is difference between light magic and dark magic? Intent. Ummm, anyone else see the problem here?
As a result, the only likeable characters are Rose and Akin. Caitlyn, the heroine, is bitter (with good reason, admittedly - I wanted to rage at her parents myself) and somewhat selfish, having been raised in a priveleged household. Luckily, she has a good friend in Rose, who repays her help with loyalty and support, showing her what true worth is about. Caitlyn struggles to cope with having zero magic, in a world where it is valued above all else. She learns to use what talents she does have, to compensate for her lack of magical prowess, with amazing results - thereby, finally winning her father's approval (what a jerk).
The storyline is intriguing and definately worth following in the sequel. It will be interesting to see how the various characters develop.

A brilliant first novel in what I hope will be a new series. I liked the magic system, logical and well thought out. Explores what it would be like to live in a society of magic when you have no magical ability. Set in the traditional magical school. Good characters, it will be interesting to see how Cait's sisters react after the duel.

I tend to give critical reviews, focusing on the flaws or areas that could be improved or that annoyed me while reading. A novel I have nothing against is rare. I have nothing bad to say about this book, provided there is a sequel.

The only possible complaint is that now the author has ANOTHER series to write which will slow down the pace for schooled in magic. This vexes me in the most pleasant of ways.

Please keep up the good work.

Damn you Chris. Now I'm addicted to another one of your wonderful universes.

The only disadvantage to CN's writing is that there's so much to keep up with.

Another great story from Christopher Nuttall. There are some similarities to the Schooled in Magic series, but the author has changed a significant premise in this magic world which opens new horizons. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
