Description

Brimming with new ideas for magical research, Emily returns to Whitehall School for her second year of magical education, looking forward to returning to her studies. And yet things are different; her new roommates harbor their secrets, her old friends are becoming distracted by sports and games, and one of the teachers seems to dislike her. As she starts new classes, she discovers she has to work far harder to keep her place in the school.

But her second year will be far more adventurous than her first. When it becomes clear that there is a murderer - and a spy - in the school, Emily will be the only one who can save the school from a plot aimed right at the heart of the Allied Lands themselves. And yet her curiosity may very well prove her undoing.

Number Three in great series.

Excellent narration by Tavia Gilbert great voices for the characters in the story. I also appreciate that she is the continuing narrator for this series.
I wish that Audible had a waiting list so that we would be notified when the next book in the series is released.
This series is a fun read and a real treat to listen to. The story flows smoothly characters keep their individuality and believability.
I was sorely disappointed when I could not purchase book four
Emphatically yes on the entire series so far and of course start with book one. this story does stand by itself still it is so much better if you start at the beginning .

amazing sequel to the first and second

I don't normally do reviews because I get embarrassed very easily at what I write. But this one is an exception. it was so good I couldn't let it go. I even found a way to listen to it at work. it was an amazing follow story to the high action second book. although it had a similar feel to a particular Harry Potter book(heck it's even referenced in there), but I won't say witch because spoilers.
Thank you for a great book and a great performance.
an admiring fan

Not bad, but frustrating

The plot and main points of the book are good. Written as an outline I would definitely think this would be an awesome book... But I found the whole story very tiring and frustrating. I was annoyed at the main character, and constantly wondering what the heck was going on. The whole story was less interesting / enjoyable than the first two books. But ah-ha! We have the reason at the end! I dislike such explanations. I had trouble figuring out if the main character was 17, or 13. Was she a young woman bordering on adulthood, or a child that couldn't see beyond her own reckless desires. At the end of the book, I guess I'm just supposed to forgive this... But I simply can't excuse all these powerful side characters being absolutely useless. The whole book was a series of blunders, impotence, ignorance, and a complete disregard of common sense and logic. AND THEN you have to keep hearing about how much the world has changed. Really? Has it changed? Because all I see is people making the same dumb mistakes, and everyone running around like they don't know what to do, or how to do anything about it. "Let's turn to the 13/17 year old girl/woman for answers." The narrator is great, and the major plot points of the book sound great on paper... But the book is poorly fleshed out and it doesn't leave me enjoying it like the first two. I hear the rest are much better.

Emily's Latest Adventure

Study in Slaughter is book 3 of Schooled in Magic series on audio. There will be more to come. I am happy since this story was at least as good as the first two. Emily meets a shape shifter in 2nd year. There are new teachers and new students to meet. Well worth a credit.

Oi...

To start, before writing this, I read through Gordian Knot so I'm pretty involved in the series and like a lot of what Nuttell does. I've read and listened to a lot of Nuttall's stuff. He come up with some REALLY awesome plot lines but sometimes his writing come off as super biased. Maybe that is because he is from Scotland and this Yank just doesn't get his mindset sometimes. But to me, these books have been a neat story line with a bad execution. In example I find Emily's inner dialog so very annoying. Always talking about how she "made" the princess a good person. Always going on about how backwards the world is and comparing it to Earth. For someone who supposedly doesn't miss earth, she complains a lot. She is so obsessive about how awesome she is, how insecure she is, how traumatized she is by her past... it sometime make me want to reach through the dimensions and bitch slap her. Maybe Nuttell wants the reader to find Emily extremely annoyed by her. A very insecure girl, who also thinks she is right about everything. Just wow, sit back and think about that for a moment.... Moment over. So I found a number of these books a staggered attempt at getting into a young female mindset. Maybe that is actually how teenage girls are, and I'm super disconnected, but if so... sorry girls, get over yourselves. As you read/listen further he (or she) will get better, but not by much. I love a strong female lead, but I think Emily is that only part of the time, the rest of the time she is waffling is a world where she needs to nut up or shut up. Also the learning curve in the books has been odd. she learned SOOOO much much magic in her first year or two. Over the next number of years after she nickel and dined her way through school. After both Past Tense and Sergant's Apprentice I thought, "Finally, let the bad ass out!" but nope... she continues to waffle. So, a brave attempt to Nuttell to take on the mind of a teenage girl, but sometime I have wished the necromancer's would turn her into their sock puppet to stop her whining.

Sheesh!! Off she goes again!

Wow!! That's really all I can say without spoiling the whole book. This book is an incredible read. I can't believe all the crazy things that happen to this girl. Can't she just have a normal year? jk. This book has so many twists and turns that you end up getting lost through it all in the best way possible!!

Best one so far.

I have enjoyed all the books but found the repetition annoying. This time he left out a lot of the repetition and found some different ways to say it. I do think he could lesson the repetition even more.

I love it

I loved the book. With each stage that Emily advances, more interesting are becoming the challenges ahead of her. And as much as Emily tries to avoid, her actions take on gigantic proportions, confiding her as to a child The narration is spectacular, and only enriches the story that is wonderful.
