When Brystal Evergreen stumbles across a secret section of the library, she discovers a book that introduces her to a world beyond her imagination and learns the impossible: She is a fairy capable of magic! But in the oppressive Southern Kingdom, women are forbidden from reading and magic is outlawed, so Brystal is swiftly convicted of her crimes and sent to the miserable Bootstrap Correctional Facility.

But with the help of the mysterious Madame Weatherberry, Brystal is whisked away and enrolled in an academy of magic! Adventure comes with a price, however, and when Madame Weatherberry is called away to attend to an important problem she doesn’t return. Do Brystal and her classmates have what it takes to stop a sinister plot that risks the fate of the world, and magic, forever?

    Anyone own this?
    Curious how it’s not for kids?

      Right me too…it sounds like something my 8 year old would like but not going to get it if it’s “not for kids”

      I think we will pass on this one. Quotes from a couple reviews: “The not so good: The book is dark. Executing children, slavery, violent parenting. It’s tough to justify letting just any old kid read this. You need to be selective based on how sensitive the reader is with this one.” “It was surprisingly heavy in subject matter and introduced a Judeo-Christian-ish religion into the Kingdoms that hadn’t been present in LoS. While Colfer’s writing style is again superb, I surprised by the blatant introduction of a religious system (for which he has clear disdain) and the overall heavier/angrier tone of the book, given that it was billed as a prequel to LoS, which are based on fairytales and other fictional stories. Hadn’t bargained on reading about people punishing/executing children “in the name of the Lord to purge them of their sins,” so while older kiddos might identify with the strong theme of embracing your unique identity, we found it to be less entertaining/engaging for the younger boys.”

        Thank you for this! No books that mention even one child execution for us!

    We own the entire cris Colfer series i would recommend it for kids age 10 and above who are crazy over magic.

    Thanks for the reviews. I ordered for my 10 year old daughter. I think she will enjoy it.

    I have a 10 year old son who is a HUGE reader and he loved this book. (as well as all the Land of Stories)

    My 11 year old daughter LOVED this book and his other series. We are looking forward to the 2nd book in this series that is coming out later this year.
