Description

The New York Times bestselling series!

"Maximum suspense, unusual magic--a whole new, thrilling approach to fantasy!"
--Tamora Pierce
, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Powerful magic. A deadly legacy. A world at the edge of war. Prepare to be spellbound by The Black Witch.

Elloren Gardner is the spitting image of her grandmother, who drove back the enemy forces in the last Realm War. But while her people believe she will follow in her grandmother's footsteps and become the next Black Witch of prophecy, Elloren is devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above all else.

When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren joins her brothers at Verpax University. But she soon realizes that the university may be the most treacherous place of all for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.

As evil looms and the pressure to live up to her heritage builds, Elloren's best hope of survival may be among a secret band of rebels...if only she can find the courage to trust those she's been taught to fear.

"Exquisite character work, an elaborate mythology, and a spectacularly rendered universe make this a noteworthy debut, which argues passionately against fascism and xenophobia."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Briskly paced, tightly plotted...set in a rich alternative universe with a complicated history that can help us better understand our own."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Good
By: Ardian Kris

The author is good at writing and her writing style is enjoyable. The story had a good amount of action and romance. Certain parts of the book were thrilling but there were also some slower boring times as well. There are many characters and I liked the world building because it's very magical, creative, and detailed, but for the most part, this was just okay for me.
