Book Review: A School For Sorcery

Summary: Welcome to the Leslie Simonton School for the Magically Gifted. A school where students can expect the unexpected. But be careful. At this school the final exam could be a real...killer.

Thoughts: While the summary tells you next to nothing about the book, readers will get the joke...which kinda defeats the point of a summary. In this book a young farm-girl named Tria  enters a school to further develop her previously oppressed magical gifts. Here she makes friends and enemies, mostly enemies, and starts focusing less on learning and more on surviving. All in all, this was a unique book. A different setting with rather ordinary characters made for a fun if not intriguing read. Without getting too spoilerish I will warn you that things got rather confusing by the end and there are some rather shocking events leading up the a big revelation, so brace yourself. The characters themselves were neither amazing nor repulsive, simply ordinary and a little boring. The plot, in my opinion, made this story the wonderfully intruging read that it is!

Content: Aside from lots of magic (and some rather dark bits of it too) I can't recall anything worth mentioning.
