Publisher's Summary

Heroes aren’t born; they’re made. But so are villains.

Raine Campbell never knew she was special until her dormant magic unleashed to protect her friends. 

But it couldn’t be contained or controlled. 

Enter the School of Necessary Magic, where magical teens are taught to master their abilities and maybe learn some math. 

During a forbidden trip into the massive underground city beneath the school - off limits to freshmen - Raine discovers druids are disappearing. And no one seems to care. 

Refusing to stand by and ignore it like everyone else, she dives into an increasingly dangerous plot to rescue them before the balance the druids maintain tips into chaos. 

But doing so requires breaking rules that could lead to her expulsion and threatens to end her dream of working as a witch for the FBI, following in the footsteps of her father and uncle. 

Join Raine on an action-packed adventure of magic and mayhem. 

After all, rules are just guidelines, right?

Say hello to old friends and meet the new freshman class at the School of Necessary Magic. 

NOTE: While the series continues in the same world with some returning characters, it does stand alone. No prior experience necessary.

HP fans beware - this is tame!

Having listened to this book all the way through, I feel deflated. Being a story about teenage magicians in a school, one has to compare it with the Harry Potter series which surely has become the benchmark for all stories of this genre. Missing is the looming menace of a Voldemort-like figure, and we are left with a vague poisoning/curse placed on a teacher, not our on heroine, and possibly a suspicious/unexplained death of the heroine's father as the only "menaces" in the book. And our heroine's story is hopelessly mixed up with half-a-dozen other student stories, so one is flitting from one story to another. Our heroine's story probably gets <20% of the book, i.e., she is hardly a heroine but becomes just one of the people of interest in the book. In the end, it is not so much a hero/heroine story, but a school story comprising the minutiae of a set of new students settling in to an unusual school. Perhaps that is a bit harsh, but it barely comes up to kneecaps of the 1st HP book, in my opinion. I'll try the 2nd book in the hopes that things will improve, but if not, I'll be returning them.

It's no harry potter, but..

Having never read any of the school of necessary magic books before, I pre-ordered this book based on it's summary text. It said no experience needed of the prior series, and for the most part I agree with that. However, I was a little overwelmbed with the first chapter, but by the 2nd chapter I was quite happy to sit and enjoy the story.
The start feels very much like what an American version of Harry Potter would have been written like, so if you like Harry Potter and would like a bit of an American twist to it, you'll probably really enjoy this... but I guess that is how all magical books about teens going to a magical school feel now.
There seems to be a lot more to the series, so it's worth getting into if you're into this genre and lends it's hand as nice stepping stone into it's world with plenty of other books to read.
