Publisher's Summary

With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better.

Despite the turmoil, she's eager to start her magic training, especially as she's been given one year to harness her power or be put to death. But her plans take a radical turn when she becomes involved with a plot to reclaim Ixia's throne for a lost prince, and gets entangled in powerful rivalries with her fellow magicians.

If that wasn't bad enough, it appears her brother would love to see her dead. Luckily, Yelena has some old friends to help her with all her new enemies.

    "Action Packed"

    I enjoyed this book more than the first (Poison Study). The author was a bit more deft in her characterization and it maintained interest to the end.

    It appears there will more to the series.

    "Part 2 of the Story"

    Magic Study was quite good. We are only starting to understand the true depth of Yelana's power. Her powers are imaginative and delightful. The author is doing a bang up job with this series and I cannot wait until book 3.

    "Great Fantasy Series"

    This is the second in what is a great fantasy series. Yelena is a great character. She has a lot of depth. This story follows Yelena to her family, who she was seperated from as a child. She always believed that she was an orphan, but found out in the first book of the series, Poison Study, that she was kidnapped. Yelena has a lot of trouble fitting in with her family and is a little relieved when it is time for her to leave them so that she can go study magic. Trouble brews at the magic school when magicians get kidnapped and killed. Yelena jumps in to investigate and gets herself in a lot of trouble on the way. The book has lots of action and I can't wait for the next one. A must read.

    "2nd in a series?"

    I hope Maria is writing Part 3 now! Poison Study was as wonderful as this. The 2 Books definately worth the time and money. Maria, hope there are many more to come. Thanks.
