schooled in magic

By October 27, 2020No Comments

Christopher Nuttal is a superb story teller. A good book that has me looking forward to book 2. Nuttall is a strong character builder, also, with believable young characters (teens and twenties for the core characters, for the most part). The introduction of modern technologies based on knowledge, like the abacus, our alphabet and numerical system, would be huge and cheap advantages in a world this squalid. So bad. The first part of the story seems rushed and there are some corny references to popular fantasy and sifi titles that that made me wonder if I hadn't gotten myself into just another cheesy young adult fantasy. Since I found it in the depths of my Nook when I was looking for something else, who knows.

Schooled in Magic doesn't even come close to being as good as Twilight. Little did I know that when I started reading this book that I was going to end up completely hooked and ploughing my way through a fourteen book series. Emily is going home from the library when she's abducted into another world by a necromancer who wants to sacrifice a "Child of Destiny" who has yet to master magic. It took over two months, but finally I made it through this badly edited nightmare of a novel without any likeable characters or a complex world view.

Highly recommended. The series becomes better as it progresses and is compulsive reading. This book could have gotten a higher score.

If you can ignore this and just enjoy the book for the light read it is there are some fun ideas in it and the characters are engaging enough that you can skim over some of the more obvious bits. I love the way he sneaks real history lessons into this story and causes me to think about history in new and relevant ways. I wish the author would stop referencing Harry Potter with implementation that Schooled in Magic is better? His love of history and knowledge of wordcraft combine to make an incredibly insightful fantasy series. Iwas attracted by the author, having read many of his books before. The first part of the story seems rushed and there are some corny references to popular fanta, The book starts out a little weakly. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 19, 2018. So bad. “Fairest is a subjective measure. This is literally Harry Potter with Hermione Granger as the main character. Schooled in Magic, by Christopher Nuttall, is the first of a YA / fantasy / coming of age series that now reaches 10 books. It then said something like Before You Go and listed six or eight OTHER books that it said other people had purchased who had also purchased the book I just read. This is more of a YA series, and while the main character is a reluctant teenager girl, she's written by a male author well aware the girl is traumatized by an unhappy childhood and knows she would not be happily romancing people or content to be traded around like a party favor.

Rescued in the nick of time by an enigmatic sorcerer, she discovers that she possesses magical powers and must go to Whitehall School to learn how to master them. This book is more hardcore action-fantasy and somewhat less childish that the Harry Potter books however I have to confess that, although I bought them all, I have only read the first three of the Potter ones yet. Although this book follows the familiar structure of so many other young adult fantasy books, it takes the development of magical abilities seriously and, unlike many books in this genre (most notably Harry Potter), it focuses on the students development of visualization skills and manipulation and direction of energy both inside and outside of herself.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 27, 2015. Emily is a teenage girl pulled from our world into a world of magic and mystery by a necromancer who intends to sacrifice her to the dark gods. Medieval worlds aren't great places to be, for anyone, and this series does well capturing the stench, squalor, misery, and poverty that they are really all about.

This book has everything that I liked about A Life Less Ordinary but also everything I felt was missing and really none of that books faults. This is quite different from certain popular female authors whose victim-girls spend their time slutting or crying or both. This book seriously reads like some kind of Mary Sue fanfic written by a bitter old lady who never got over the fact that she didn't receive an invitation to Hogwarts.
