Publisher's Summary

The Necromantic Wars are over, but there is no peace.

In the aftermath of the struggle, long-held grudges are boiling over and conflicts are breaking out. The monarchs want to settle border disputes, the aristocrats want to impose their will on monarchs and peasants alike, the commoners want freedom and justice, and the magical communities want to rule all or else separate themselves from the mundanes. And most of this chaos is being orchestrated by Emily’s mentor, the sorcerer Void. He believes the only path to salvation for the Allied Lands is to make himself the undisputed ruler of the world.

After discovering the truth – too late – Emily is on the run, blamed for the disorder by friend and foe alike. With a handful of allies by her side, Emily must find a safe place to gather herself and strike back before it is too late to save what remains of the Allied Lands. And yet, as she flees through lands plagued by civil wars and rebellious nobility, hunted by powerful sorcerers, aristocrats and rebels who want to kill her or use her for their own purposes, she is forced to accept it may not be possible to save everything and to realize, as much as she might wish to deny it, that her mentor might be right.

And yet, she also knows the path to hell is paved with good intentions....

Facey mc face face

can't wait for the next book. Pure gold as always. With a title like "face of the enemy", I thought we would get to see void's real face. We didn't, but maybe it was a metaphorical face.

Overall series well-built and plotted

I have enjoyed Schooled in Magic quite a lot, and try not to fall into the trap of "familiarity breeds contempt"...but I could do with less of Emily's struggling thoughts, whininess and sourness. However, I still want her to succeed with the right choices. I disagree with some reviewers who claim there is not enough action. There was almost too much :D. I appreciated how well one of her worst nemeses was woven into the story and how it resolved near the end. Really loved the library card issue near the start of the book. It's a pity, I say sourly, that the last book is out, and the word sour was, in all likelihood, not removed, I feel like I have a lime in my mouth when I think of Emily. Beautifully narrated.

Blah Blah Blah

really unimpressed by Saskia Maarleveld's performance. Ignoring moments of mispronunciation and severe pacing concerns in her delivery, for a SAG/AFRA member to give a performance of such sophomoric and soporific degree bodes ill of her acting teacher's abilities. I expected better. As far as the continuing tale of the whiny sorcerous...Nuttall fails to flesh out the plot once again.

Schooled in magic goes camping

Pretty self explanatory, this book is just the main characters traveling with very little story. However, the book sets the setting for the next book which will most likely be a good addition to the series.

To be continued...

Disappointing. The series started so well. This latest book contained little to no plot. The entire book could have been covered in a chapter, let alone the to be continued ending.
