Publisher's Summary

Caitlyn Aguirre is no magician - but that doesn't make her useless.

After discovering her true talent and uncovering the long-lost secret behind Objects of Power, Cat returns to school - intent on showing everyone what she can do. But her mere existence is a threat to the balance of power, convincing some to befriend her, some to try to use her...and some to remove her.

And when she and her closest friends become the target of a deadly plot, she must use all her wits to save them and escape before she becomes the first casualty in a deadly war.

Interesting, but she gotta grow up

This character is unbelievably naive. I'm not sure anything would fall into the stuff she does. She's gotta get wiser or the whole series is going to go downhill fast.

Highly immersive and addictive

Superb. THIS is part of Mr. Nuttall's best series, for me. No one creates a more detailed and believable magic world, and he comes close to Diana Wynne Jones and JKRowling in that magical combination of characters and plot that immerse you completely. I don't know, perhaps there are times he is their equal. I only know I could barely stop listening. I was very pleasantly pleased with Schooled in Magic, but the Zero Enigma series is even better. Warmly recommended. This is so wonderful that I had to order the book as it is not yet out in audio,but I do plan to order it when it is ready. Perfectly narrated in every way.

Fun book, but missing charm

Fun book, but the age of the main character feels very wrong.

The “internal” dialog and the adult conversation does not feel like a 12-13 year old.

The adults talks to her as an equal, discussing and wanting her opinion on world changing subject.
The teachers ask more for help, then providing guidance. Given advanced tasks, and displays very rational thought patterns. For a “kid” there a too few games, and messing around. Too many “grownups” ideas and dialogs, and too little hormones.

I would like to see her learn and fail more. She knows too much, and is too perfect for a fresh student.

The book main character would be more plausible with an age between 17-24 years

unrealistic

Unfortunately the last half of the book is frustrating to listen to. The main character gets enslaved. Is able to escape and in the process has the means to kill her capters via a potion that is basically a huge bomb. Instead of blowing up the building on the way out she doesn't. She makes non-leathal weapons instead of lethal ones, allowing the pursuers to continually chase her over and over again. Even after she stuns them she won't kill them, she leaves them there to come back to chase her. Enslaved for 2 months with the threat of them murding you and your friends and you leave them alive to chase you? No, sorry, that is dumb. In fact, I don't think anyone dies in the whole book. Completely unrealistic. Not worth reading.

Cliffhanger

I definitely enjoyed the first two books, but both have extreme cliffhangers and I had to wait for the second to come out and now wait until... when? For the third to come out. Another issue for me is that the main characters are 12, but the storyline and how they behave is meant clearly for teens rather than children of 12 years old. It kept throwing me off and making things complicated when they didn’t have to be had the author adjusted the story to make the characters even a couple of years older. I know it probably sounds like a difficult thing to do, but I don’t think it really would have been especially given the way that the too young ages affect the storyline and the way a reader has to battle in their own mind to try to accept the impractical ages to fit the storyline.
Something that drove me crazy was the CONSTANT “and yet...” that the protagonist would think to herself. It’s not difficult to change it up instead of driving readers to distraction from something so small. (Likened to a mosquito that is buzzing about and biting you continually, but you can’t seem to squash the little sucker...)

alternative view into school of magic

My first thoughts in the opening chapters continuously dragged me back into Hogwarts. However once you get past that you then identify with the characters, in fact knowing the Harry potter stories probably helps visualise some of the scenes, action and the magic.
