The School for Good and Evil will soon be a major motion picture from Netflix - starring Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Sofia Wylie, Sophie Anne Caruso, Jamie Flatters, Earl Cave, Kit Young, and more! 

In this fifth installment in Soman Chainani’s New York Times best-selling The School for Good and Evil fantasy series, the past will come back to haunt the present.

Just too long

So I have liked this series so far. but this one was just too long and complicated. the story i guess was ok. but just didn't keep me engaged. I've been listening to this for MONTHS and I still have 3 hours left. ugh! usually I can't wait to listen to my book but this one..... I just don't care.

Update: This is the book that will not end!

The story gets a little too back and forth.

I thought that it was a good addition to the series, but it is getting a little too back and forth. I think that there should have been more planning and epic battling sequences instead of the continued back and forth between the two sides.

Overall Good sequel

This sequel, like the other 3 , is easy to listen to. The readers voice/ performance is great.
The plot is simple and in most cases predictable, however the behavior of the characters makes it interesting.

Overall, if you liked the previous four books ( or any of them) I suggest you give the book a try.

VERY bland

I like Polly Lee, but did she have to make some voices exactly same??!!! ( For example, Reain and Tedros. The story was just Sophie, Tedros, Sophie, Tedros and then back again. It did not have a beginning, middle, or end and as I mentioned in the cover, BLAND BLAND BLAND!!!!!!! Overall, the story was pretty jumbled and I would recommend spending your credits on something better.

Again Wow

That cliffhanger, this was a great bridge book that also felt important and not just filler like most sequels in a trilogy, beautifully voice acted but I was surprised when one of the characters had a little voice change.
