OUT NOW – Child of Destiny (Schooled in Magic 24)

4 Sep

Eight years ago, the Sorcerer Void saved Emily’s life. To Emily, Void became, in so many ways, the father she’d never had. And yet Void kept a secret from her. To save the Allied Lands from themselves, to keep them from being destroyed by the necromancers or torn apart by their short-sighted rulers, he embarked on a plan to launch a coup and reunite the long-dead empire, a plan that can only end in total war or a permanent living death. He must be stopped.

And now, all that stands between him and his goal is his adopted daughter, Emily herself.

Gathering her allies, Emily prepares herself to return to Whitehall, to face the most dangerous opponent she has ever faced. But as she pits the new world against the old in a desperate bid to undo Void’s work before it is too late, she is forced to confront a deadly truth…

Is it possible that Void might be right?

    Great job tying things up Chris! Hopefully there is a lot more of Emily’s story to come. Think Fitzchivalry Farseer…

    Just wanted to say I have found the schooled in magic series of books great. I’m especially glad about future plans.

    Excellent end to the arc. I hope Emily actually gets a chance to be happy and enjoy what she has become.

    Finished it last night.

    Choosing Void to be the series villain was a big mistake. He never seemed menacing enough for me, and what made it worse was the lack of personal stakes with Emily. There was no way he would kill her if he wanted his quasi-empire to survive past his death; that left a fuzzy and impersonal ideological clash as their main bone of contention, which is not really enough (especially if one happens to agree with Void). And besides, once he eventually died, she would get her way anyway.

    I would have beefed up the White Council into a real threat and kept Void as a mentor figure, who would eventually do an Obi-Wan Kenobi and leave Emily to blow up the death star.

    However, in honour of the character, I have taken the liberty of taking Emily as the name of a character in one of my projects, although she is more like Alassa. But she’s not my main character: that position is filled by a “m”.
