After completing her first year of learning magic at Whitehall School, Emily accepts an invitation from Princess Alassa to accompany her on her progress back to her home country of Zangaria, where the princess may meet her future husband. Alassa, who was a spoiled brat before she met Emily, wants to show off her friend - and impress potential suitors.
For Emily, it is a chance to relax and explore a world very different to Earth, meet new people and come to terms with her reputation in the Nameless World. After her defeat of Shadye, everyone wants to know her, to talk with her, to kill her or to marry her. For Emily, hardly a social butterfly, the experience is disconcerting. She was never seriously courted before, not on Earth.
And yet, as she sees more of the countries surrounding Whitehall, she feels more and more out of place. The locals come from a very different culture, one that is often strange and horrifying to her eyes. Even her friends seem different people in their homes.
But dark forces are at work, plotting to capture the princess, take power in Zangaria, and undo all of Emily's work. As all hell breaks loose, Emily may be all that stands between Zangaria and a return to the dark ages of brute force that threatened to lay the kingdom low once before. And if she fails, her friends will be just the first victims of a war that will rip the Allied Lands apart.

Love the characters, the plot, the intrigue and the layers of life in a strange world by young girls growing into strong women who may be a bit unsure of how to go about bettering their native or adopted world yet wanting only to better their world and themselves. new characters are added and make you wonder "now what?". Never boring, clever continuity and friends who become allies who may shape their world as well as themselves whether society wants them to or not. Mystery and honesty. Loyalty and trust. Friends wo question and a whole lot of enemies.
Once again I was impressed by this story and I hope others will give this series a listen, I’m just hoping that this series won’t disappoint. So far it has been impressive so please continue with the good work.
I am of the firm opinion, that opinions are onions
This book is exceedingly well written. It is reminiscent of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court with a plot that resembles Harry Potter. It, thankfully, is not a young adult novel.
I have read all of the books in this series to date, and now I am enjoying them again in audio form. This is a wonderfuly rich world which happily crosses Connecticut Yankee and Harry Potter with a bit of Game of Thrones for good measure. I highly recommend it!
