Ben Holiday, High Lord of the magic kingdom of Landover, and his wife Willow have sent their 15-year-old daughter Mistaya to our world to attend a prestigious girls' boarding school. Mistaya, Misty to her friends, is not pleased with the arrangement. She is forbidden to use her magic for any reason, can't understand why other girls her own age don't revere the natural world, and is too clever for her own good in coming up with activities definitely not contained in the private school charter.

Hopefully, after he finishes up Shannara, he will come back to Landover for at least one more book.

The book held my interest throughout with some interesting characters and situations. Only criticism I have is that it was somewhat lacking in action. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

My favourite of the series. Perhaps the long break from the series reinvigorated Mr. Brooks' imagination for it.
The story moved at a good pace, and with the focus on Ben Holiday's daughter, rather than on the usual characters, it made the story and writing seem fresh.

The Landover novels all have a easier pace and more lighthearted feel to them in comparison to the Shannara series, which usually has made me enjoy them less, but not in this case. I enjoyed reading this book immensely.
