Publisher's Summary

After her victory over Master Grey, Emily wants nothing more than to relax and give herself time to recover from the duel. Her magic, pushed to the limits, is no longer reliable, forcing her to learn to control it from scratch. Every time she delays using her magic, she risks headaches...or worse. But she must return to Whitehall to complete her fourth-year exams and bid farewell to those of her friends who are not returning for fifth year. And then, she must return to Zangaria to play her role in Princess Alassa's wedding to Jade. It seems, if nothing else, a brief diversion before she goes off on a tour of the Allied Lands.

But all is not well in Zangaria and the kingdom is fast approaching a major crisis. Junior aristocrats are demanding their rights and titles from the king, while King Randor himself is dangerously unstable and hiding a secret that could spark off a civil war...and the peasants are threatening to revolt. Emily herself is isolated, unsure how to balance her obligations to her closest friends with her belief in freedom, justice, and democracy. And, as Emily finds herself used as a political pawn by the different sides in the growing dispute and no longer sure who she can trust, she may find herself confronting a choice between doing the right thing, regardless of the cost...and losing everything she's built over the past four years.

i really enjoy this series. i am getting annoyed at how long it takes to get a new book out. I just want to give you my money so i can finish the serries. i do get excited when i see a new addition but i am very impatient. since these books are only around 13 hrs i finish them in 2 days while i work.

disappointed

Obviously I have been reading this series and I have to say that I am getting a bit disappointed with the main character and the lack of things happening. The main character still has no actual goal other than trying to recreate stuff from earth and she isn't even the one doing it. She is always saying that things aren't her fault and this is true. The majority of the events in the book aren't because she hasn't tried to do anything. She has no true goal that she is actively involved in. She is in this river that is her life and is content to flow with it and then complains when it effects her.
The book ended in a good place to start giving her control but if she continues to not have a goal I will be struggling to finish the series.

Not the worst book

never seemed to get there, expected more from the plot but never happened and to many predictable moments.
