Publisher's Summary

The post of Head Girl of Whitehall looks fantastic on anyone's resume. It places the lucky winner on equal terms to the staff, granting them authority, power, and responsibility that no other student can even dream of possessing. A student lucky enough to win the coveted post is destined for greatness. Everyone will want to know their name.
Naturally, Emily doesn't want it. 
But when she returns to Whitehall for her sixth and final year, she discovers that the staff has elected her to the post - and refusal isn't an option. Worse, the Grandmaster wants her to run his pet project - a formal dueling club - even though it's the last thing she wants to do. Reluctantly, she starts to carry out her new duties, unaware that deadly enemies are waiting in the shadows, preparing themselves to strike at her when her back is turned. Someone is spreading rumors about her, someone is sabotaging her projects, someone is weakening the ties that bind her to Whitehall.
And, as matters start to spin out of control, as the life and soul of one of her closest friends is thrown into terrifying danger, Emily must decide between carrying out her duties or walking away, knowing that either choice will cost her dearly...and leave her alone at the center of a deadly storm.

Gratuitous cussing

Gratuitous cussing
I love Christopher Nuttall but am disappointed in this book when he turned to gratuitous cussing.

Almost nothing happened

Too much of the story that happened took place off the page. The writer clearly forgot the cardinal rule of writing stories. A story is about challenge and change. No change happened because of the story challenge and all the real events around the challenge happened off page. If this had happened earlier in the series I would have abandoned the author. There's only one book left.

Not what I expected

I was disappointed with this book in comparison with the rest of the series, in my opinion it was almost like the writer had finished about 1/3 of the story that would be expected from the previous books in the series and then fluffed it up to make a whole book.... I hope that he gets back on track with the next book!!

Performed well, no real content

I enjoyed the performance, after listening to the last 12 books I really don't want to quit the series now, but nothing really happens in this story. She goes to school and has trouble with her friends until right near the end when there is a fight.
Certainly disappointed after the previous stories in the series.
