Publisher's Summary

Emily is a teenage girl pulled from our world into a world of magic and mystery by a necromancer who intends to sacrifice her to the dark gods. Rescued in the nick of time by an enigmatic sorcerer, she discovers that she possesses magical powers and must go to Whitehall School to learn how to master them. There, she learns that the locals believe she is a "Child of Destiny" - someone whose choices might save or damn their world, a title that earns her both friends and enemies.
A stranger in a very strange land, she may never fit in to her new world, and the necromancer is still hunting her. If Emily can't stop him, he might bring about the end of days.

Neurotic Heroine

Yes, the book borrows a lot of the world-building from Harry Potter, but the author's goal seems to be to repair some of the flaws he saw in the Potter world, based on some of our protagonist's sarcastic comments about the books. There aren't otherwise many original ideas here.

I found it hard to like our protagonist, Emily. She's neurotic, insecure, and is overly concerned about what others think of her. Her social skills are poor and lacks anything like a sense of humor; anyone who teases her sends her into paroxysms of guilt and despair.

Still, she's smart and has an implausibly good knowledge of history and science for someone still in high school and these are the key to her success, rather than bravery or martial skills.

It's a fine series for mindless entertainment; I listen the stories as I do housework and this one doesn't demand a lot of my attention.

Brilliant

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved this book, and would recommend to anyone who loves a great magical story paired with a fabulous female lead. Towards the end I couldn't leave it, and listened at every opportunity. The end didn't disappoint and will definitely be putting the next 2 books in my library.

What other book might you compare Schooled in Magic to, and why?

I think this is a mix of all the best stories I have read, Harry Potter, Lord of the rings, shannara, amongst others.

What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Tavia brought the characters to life, her voice changes were brilliant.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not a particular moment but I did like the gradual development of Emily's character and strength.

Bored

Couldn't get further than the first chapter. failed to hold my attention at all. Went on and on about how horrible her life was and that she'd amount to nothing, must have mentioned it ten times. Narrator was quite good though, she tried.

I loved it. :-)

Narrator was fantastic and easy to listen to and the story kept me involved right through. I can't wait to start the second one!
