This is another great book in the Schooled in Magic series of books. Emily is back in her own time in the Allied Lands yet for most of the book it is another change of scenery for Emily. As the book blurb states the Nameless World goes to war and, of course, Emily is on the front lines. I rarely give a 10 out of 10 star rating and it is almost unheard of that I give it to two books in the same series straight after one another but, although I think I liked Paste Tense just a tad better, this book definitely deserves a 10 out of 10 rating.
I was actually somewhat hesitant about this book. I generally despise time travel on books, movies and TV-shows. It generally ruins the story and worse, is often used as a shortcut to cover up holes in the story. I am happy to write that I was totally wrong. This book is definitely one of the rare books that I rate at 10 out of 10 stars.
This is a very good addition to the Schooled in Magic series from one of my favorite authors, Christopher Nuttall. Emily is back in school which is my preferred setting, so far at least, for these books. It is well written as one would expect from Christopher Nuttall and there is plenty of mysteries, action and things in general going on.
