Think Harry Potter meets The Hunger Games.
Or at least, that’s how it starts out.
Sixteen-year-old Bianca Munroe is determined to enrol in the famed Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, where the best witches in the area receive their training, and go on to fulfil important roles in the society of the Networks (regions, a bit like the Districts in Hunger Games).
Sounds simple so far, but Bianca is hiding an ulterior motive which she keeps hidden even from the reader for quite some time, although there clearly IS a secret, we are just not privy to its details. Or to the reason why Bianca must conceal the identity of her father at all costs.
Making it through a tricky interview, Bianca is enrolled in the school, but not content with that achievement, she then strives to become Miss Mabel’s personal assistant by entering a dangerous competition, pitted against witches older and more educated than she is.
Or are they?
I won’t go further as that would spoil the plot.
I was captured from the word go by the secrets and suspense of the tale, along with Bianca’s personality, which varies from strong and resourceful, to self-doubting and desperate as events unfold. The friends she makes at the school are interesting and unique characters, and clearly have roles to fulfil in the rest of the series, which I will most definitely be reading. This book sets up a far wider story to come, taking in politics, betrayal, and war across the Networks of Antebellum
I was also particularly taken with Katie Cross’s writing style, which never used a boring word or description, and yet succeeded in not descending into purple or flowery prose. It is also error free and well-presented – such a relief after some of the books I’ve (tried to) read lately.
Highly recommended provided teenage heroines are your type of read.

One of the biggest strengths with the writing of this novel is in its sense of fluidity; the beauty of the description does not falter throughout the entirety of the book. The descriptive writing is stunningly detailed, in-depth and they really spring off the page and pull you into the story; ‘I took Camille by the hand, and we plunged into the festivities, laughing until the light faded and the feast began beneath the pumpkin-coloured sky.’ The characters are extensively built up and if you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know how important it is that the characters have strong qualities. Bianca appears to be a nervous character with little self-belief, but we quickly learn that there is an inner strength and that our first view of her does not truly reflect her inner core, which includes wit, loyalty, and power. Camille appears ditzy and slightly offish however throughout the book she grows in strength and shows emotional devotion. She is an internally strong character who displays a waif-like vulnerability; but this is all for show and I cannot wait to see her further develop in the second book! Leda is a character that lives in books and loves to learn however there is a secret behind her obsessive complex and the way this intermingles with Bianca’s life is well discussed and I hope that the connection between them will continue to grow.

Another strength of the writing is the connection shown between Bianca and her family; throughout the book the theme of family runs strongly. I don’t want to spoil the story, as I am not a fan of spoilers, however the way in which the author mixes the importance of family with the overall impending storyline is brilliantly placed and really adds fire to the plot-line.

I received an ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, first I am sorry for how long it has taken me to get round to this. I first received it about 2 and a half years ago but just never got round to starting it. But I am determined to get back into running this blog regularly and catching up with my old review books.
I wish I had started it earlier because I really enjoyed the book and am already trying to get hold of the next book!
Bianca wishes to study at Miss Mabel's School, it's where all the best witches go to train, but she has another motive too, Bianca has a secret hanging over her and only Miss Mabel can help.
I loved the setting in the Letnum wood and the school itself. The writing is very descriptive, I could picture the classrooms, hallways and dormitories. The characters too have great personalities and really come to life on the page. But the description isn't overdone and it isn't boring at all, it's woven within the story and creates the places and people in your mind.
I read the first half quite quickly and then was desperate to find time to finish. I was hooked, I had to know what would happen to Bianca and just how far Miss Mabel would push her power. I enjoyed seeing the events unfold and I loved Bianca's quirky and weird friends.
The ending is quite a bit of a cliffhanger and will leave you desperate for more.
Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth a read.
