I REALLY enjoyed this one. It's the best read I've had in a while actually. The premise is your typical 'teenager goes off to magic school to learn magic' trope...

This is the sequel to Robert J Power's SPFBO finalist book, Spark City, and my overall comment is - it's even better than the first!! The story is a bit tighter, the characters have grown and developed, and the pacing is fast. It's quite long, too,...
