Publisher's Summary

Frieda is one of Emily’s closest friends, a young girl she saved from Mountaintop and brought back to Whitehall. But Frieda found herself the victim of a deadly soul-destroying plot - and the true target may well be Emily herself. Now, after Emily saved Frieda from a magician who was slowly driving her mad, Frieda stands accused of attempted murder - and worse. She must now stand trial for her crimes.

Worse, Fulvia - Matriarch of House Ashworth - has returned. Humiliated by Emily years ago, Fulvia burns for revenge - and the chance to regain her lost power. Calling in favors from all over the world and rigging the trial against Frieda - and Emily - it looks as if her time is finally at hand. With no clear proof of Frieda’s innocence - and a jury that can be manipulated at will - Fulvia has all the leverage she needs to bring Emily to heel.

Gathering her friends around her, and calling in favors of her own, Emily must find a way to outwit a kangaroo court and save her friend from a fate worse than death, little realizing that Fulvia’s true target is Emily herself… and that Fulvia’s desperate quest for revenge will bring the entire world crashing down.

love the author, and the story, but

why does the dialogue have to rehash every point over and over and over ... if you assume that the reader is tracking the story the book would lose %30 of it's pages.

Graduation Day?

This book was way better than the previous title. I enjoyed this one the way I had enjoyed all except Gordian Knot.

The story was good and on point for the storyline, and I’m glad to see Nuttall pulled back on the sudden usage of mass cussing GK had, while not trying to drop it completely after adding it in in GK.

I am still kind of saddened that Nuttall has continued to write Emily in such uncertain ways. Making her smart and adaptable and giving her a deep thinking and bookishness persona but while stifling her with a weird lack of forethought and planning that she only seems to miraculously have sporadically when it fills a plot point or plot hole. I am astounded by how he writes her as dumb and unable to put two and two together in big ways, while making her damn near genius level when working in a magic that is damn near a tangible computer code or programming language.

The wild swings in the intellectual levels is just off.
Although this is put aside by the accomplishments of the story overall.

Don’t get me wrong, I like this book a lot and the series is awesome. I am awaiting the next installment intently.

The performance was as expected by Gilbert.
I feel she adds account to the books.

Overall it’s great, and although I found the title misleading in the end I am impatiently waiting for the continuation.

Luke warm...

It's neither hot nor cold... That is a really good description of this book. The characters doesn't grow up or fade away. They get older but not wiser....

The Only Bad Book in an Otherwise Awesome Series

The whole conceit of the trial is terrible. It's so dull and so repetitive and forces you to keep wondering what is the point and why is Emily going along with all this nonsense. I can't count how many times we are forced to hear Freida's circumstances and listen to Emily worry "Oh No, Frieda might die!" over and over and over... Then after a huge buildup, the case does indeed come to nothing, and the plot can finally move on. Bleah. He should rewrite this whole thing and force Emily to grow into and accept her power instead of going thru with this silly trial.

Series is not for me after book 12

Not as bad as the last book or the following ones. This the second half of the last books cliffhanger non ending.

This was be my last one. Sadly.

Saddens me to say this is the last book I’ll buy from this collection. This last book (like a few before this one) spends too much time repeating information we already know from *several* times it has been rehashed in other books. Feels like trying to fill up space. Also, I find it self defeating to come to a point of climax in a story and suddenly put a break to it because the main character is “remembering or comparing” things in her mind at that precise moment. It totally ruins the moment. smh- All that time lost when some characters in the story could be further developed. Like... where was Void in all this book? Or why did Emily just “allow” Master Gordion to take ove the nexus with no push back? Why not have her bargain at the end that he had to restore her full power in the Nexus even if she left? Sorry. Too wishy washy of an “end” or even as a continuation of 13 books! Sigh.

Was there an editor?

Every other minute the words “let alone” ring out. It is used far too much and becomes very annoying

Still waiting

Still waiting for the necklace Frida gave Emily to come into play. It has to be significant, right?

Keeps getting better

I love the fact the author gave us a free novella at the end. It really helped to explain how Alassa was arrested.
Can't wait to see how this plays out. Upload more books soon.

Anticlimax?!

Was really looking forward to the last two instalments of series, the penultimate and last book really are ‘one’ and need to be read together. Graduation is also a misnomer... don’t want to spoil for other listeners, but for myself: feel let down, none too gradually either. Clearly door wide open for yet another book... but good things must end too.. and this one isn’t. After 13 instalments it should be!
