Emily is a neglected 16 year old history geek with no future. Until she is snatched from our world by an insane necromancer trying to summon "A child of destiny with vast but untrained magical potential". The punchline being that "Destiny" is the name of her alcoholic gutter trash mother. Despite the inevitable comparisons to Potter, Schooled in magic is a very different series. The magic is taken much more seriously and many of the issues Emily faces have dark parallels to our own history. Emily herself is a strong character who starts the series at a very low point in her life and has plenty of room to grow. I love this book and there are already four in the series lined up to be published. With plans for a fifth.

I love how the story progresses! Also the author's sens of humor and Harry potter jokes! hahaha Sensical system of magic and spells. Can't wait to see how Emily's character develops.

I really really liked this book! As a person who reads a lot of magic related books who also practice a bit of witchcraft, I find the magic system really logical and systematic here. It reminds me of the time when my teacher told me that we should start from basics. Magic here is organized in components that someone unfamiliar with the concept of it all will be able to learn by breaking it down to pieces.  A good read! Real page turner!
