Chantel would much rather focus on her magic than on curtsying, which is why she often finds herself in trouble at Miss Ellicott’s School for Magical Maidens. But when Miss Ellicott mysteriously disappears along with all the other sorceresses in the city, Chantel’s behavior becomes the least of her problems.
Without any magic protecting the city, it is up to Chantel and her friends to save the Kingdom. On a dangerous mission, Chantel will discover a crossbow-wielding boy, a dragon, and a new, fiery magic that burns inside her—but can she find the sorceresses and transform Lightning Pass into the city it was meant to be?
This book felt like a mix of Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children mixed with Harry Potter.
Chantel attends Miss Ellicott’s School and has always been told that she was ‘the chosen one’ because of the snake in her head. When Miss Ellicott goes missing she and her friends head out in search of food and a spell to save everybody within the wall. Can they find the missing pieces they need? Will they save everybody?
I enjoyed this book and could easily find myself falling into the world in which it took place. The characters were unique and fun. The plot was different and not overly used. However, I felt that it was kind of slow moving and could have picked up the pace just a little bit. It felt like it took forever to get to the point of this book in the long run. I really enjoyed the writing style as well.
All in all I enjoyed the book and the pace didn’t do much damage to the book. I hope to see more books by this author in the future because this was a truly unique book on all accounts.
