Five teenagers. Three magical schools. A secret family curse. A tale of epic proportions that you’ll never forget.


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: I want to say that I fell for every page of this story. That this was amazing and I couldn't put it down and that it should be a best seller.  But unfortunately that is not what happened. This book was far longer than it needed to be.  I wished that the author would have cut at least 200 pages and tighten it up a lot.  I will say that I did enjoy it but a lot of it just dragged so much.  The characters were great and the plot was all there.  It was just too long.
