Publisher's Summary

King Randor has been defeated. Queen Alassa has taken her throne. The Kingdom of Zangaria can look forward to a new age of peace and prosperity. But their victory came at a terrible price. A moment before his death, King Randor hit Emily with a powerful curse.

She's lost her magic. She's losing her mind. She may soon lose her life.

As rumors start to spread, as her enemies start to gather, Emily searches desperately for the key to unlock the curse before it is too late. But the only hope seems to rest with House Fellini, an enigmatic family of magicians. Crippled, powerless, helpless, Emily places her life in their hands. If they can't help her, no one can.

But House Fellini has its secrets. As the family struggles to undo the curse before it's too late, Emily is drawn into a decades-old mystery that threatens to destroy the family, shatter her life...and smash the entire world beyond all hope of repair.

ok sets up story for later and raps up other parts

i thought the main story was too predictable. up until the part where the main character sees thing out of the corner of her eye I was doing good. i understand other parts were set the way they were to enable the story progression but it was just not my cup of tea.the book is needed for the main story and the ending gets me back to what I was expecting of the writer. also unrelated to this book but as a whole, i feel the main character running away from her fuledal lands is the wrong direction. i feel that setting up a trade route from her land and the new school will be a great addition to the story opening new avenues. that and why has there not been more use of runes to make a thing for sale. like using runes to keep streets clean, or setting refrigerators powered by frost runes other things that would spur on a middle class. and why has there not been more use of runes to make hot running water in an older building, this is where the barony I feel comes in. set up companies that have premade runes in pipes that push water in one direction and retor fit older buildings this would be an export item.

Love, Love, Love this Series

A downtrodden girls from earth winds up in a magical world. She discovered she too has magic there and that is where the story starts…

This series is so well written I can’t help but listen to it over and over again.

Another Great SIM Book

Good mystery story. Answers questions presented several book before. I really liked it.

I hope the series continues long into the future. It is the most intelligent fantasy series I have ever read.

Good entry

The only complaints I have is that this story got a little dragged down and for my own reasons the disparity and depression and complaints about it got a little old. Emily is a very strong and capable lady but seems to forget this a lot. maybe strong women and men alike feel like her in her head I don't know, maybe hearing her thoughts makes me feel like she is less of a kick butt, and more of a petulant child. If I look inwardly I often am filled with doubt and regret so.... perhaps I am reflecting on my own failings. Save for that I have almost made a drinking game over how often she "sighs inwardly" I really wish the author would change up the speeding on occasion.... or perhaps it's just part of the character... that said I don't know if I have ever sighed in my mind, though I have groaned. anyway the books good and it was nice to see it was a problem not easily solved. I am looking forward to the next book and while I have it already I will wait for the audio release.

Underwhelmed me

Instead of writing lots of things in one book the series tends now to focus on fewer things a reiterating them over and over. Also the telling is stereotypical.
